I am attempting to send RCI commands to the XBee Gateway X2E ZB. I have tried with both Java and Python. I am able to successfully issue commands and set settings when the command is requested from a Python script running locally on the device.
However, I would like to be able to send the device RCI requests from another device over HTTP. When I try to open the connection in Java I receive a FileNotFoundException: http://[IPv4 Address Here]/UI/rci
The following is resulting in error for me:
URL url = new URL(“http://” + IP + “/UE/rci”);
URLConnection connection = url.openConnection();
conn = http.client.HTTPConnection(“http://” + IP)
conn.request(“POST”, “/UE/rci”, msg)
I have also tried /UI/rci without success. Is this something to do with passing authorization credentials to the device?
The following works when running locally:
request = ‘. . .’
response = rci.process_request(request)
Does the Gateway require an OS firmware update to provide HTTP rci functionality? (I cannot seem to find an OS version on the Gateway’s Device Configuration and Management portal).
