    I’m brand new, and so is my OpenSprinkler controller – I’m hopeful someone out there can coach me along, so I can get started…

    1. I have the OS controller connected to my PC via a router

    2. The router issued to my PC, and the OS controller has (displayed when I press B1)

    3. I am able to ping (the router) from the PC, and I am also able to ping from the PC

    4. There are no other devices connected to the router; only the OS and the PC

    5. I have factory-reset the OS, prior to checking the IP-level connectivity, so I’m confident that the little dickens is “just fine” (and that I haven’t messed its brain up by pushing buttons with wild abandon)

    6. I have MS-IE ver 9, on my PC, and I used the Address field to input (no, I did not enter that URL into the Google search box)

    7. I receive a typical “sorry, can’t find page connection  you’re looking for…” (or something like that)

    8. I pinged the address again, and the query returned replies in 1-2msec – looks like a good connection to me


    How can I get the web interface to work?








    SORRY….I made a mistake in #3 ….   I am able to ping (which is the Open Sprinkler device) – the connection is solid.  I just can’t get MS-IE v 9 to see the web interface.







    First, just to be sure we are on the same page: you have the Raspberry Pi-based OpenSprinkler (OSPi), is that right? You are posting this question under OSPi so I assume you have OSPi. If you have the fully-assembled, microcontroller-based OpenSprinkler, the first thing to check is whether your router has Internet connection. The reason is that the microcontorller-based OpenSprinkler references external Javascripts stored on remote servers. If your router does not have Internet connection, you can still use the OpenSprinkler mobile app (or Chrome app) to access it.

    It is possible IE 9 is not compatible with the web interface. Microsoft recommends upgrading:
