James Sentman [XTension Settings:] added mDNS lookup bug description
Line 31: Line 31:
 If you have only a single Hubitat on your network you can leave the defaults for **Address** as "​hubitat.local"​ under normal circumstances the port should be left as "​80."​ If you have only a single Hubitat on your network you can leave the defaults for **Address** as "​hubitat.local"​ under normal circumstances the port should be left as "​80."​
  
-If you are running multiple Hubitat'​s on the network then you will need to provide them with Static IP addresses so you know which one XTension is connecting to. There is no interface to this inside the Hubitat itself so you will need to visit the configuration of your router and create a DHCP reservation for the 2 devices, then restart them to make sure they pick up the new address if you changed it from what they were using at the time. Then enter that into the address field. ​+If you are running multiple Hubitat'​s on the network then you will need to provide them with Static IP addresses so you know which one XTension is connecting to.

 +**NOTE:** there is a bug somewhere either in their firmware or in the Mac implementation of the bonjour lookups that can make it take between 5 and 10 seconds or more to resolve the hubitat.local address. Until I or they figure out what changed and how to fix it please use a DHCP reservation or the static IP capabilities of the more recent firmware updates and change the address of the hubitat in the XTension address field to use the IP address instead of the mDNS name. This will remove the extended delay when controlling anything that many folks, including myself, but not all folks are seeing when using the hubitat.local address.
  
 If you have setup local access security on the Hubitat check the "Send Authentication"​ checkbox and enter the user and password. **NOTE:** as of this beta version sending passwords is not implemented. If this is something you need sooner please let me know and I will move it up the list of items yet to implement. It will be available before the plugin is promoted out of beta. If you have setup local access security on the Hubitat check the "Send Authentication"​ checkbox and enter the user and password. **NOTE:** as of this beta version sending passwords is not implemented.
