Suddenly ipWhitelist no longer working...

  • Suddenly it is no longer working…
    With the availability of V2.1.0 I did extend my config.js file. After that everything was working until today 😞 .
    I played a little bit around with further extending the ip range in the config file, but I tend to get permanently following error code:

    Access denied to IP address: 2a02

    From my perspective I did not change anything, however I am slightly surprised that I cannot read a direct ip address like 192.168.178.xx for access denied.
    My ipWhitelist in config.js:

       "ipWhitelist": [

    The ip address from which I try to access the remote config tool is, I am little bit lost, what might the real root cause, so any hint would be highly appreciated…

  • Just reverted to a very basic config.js file, which was working definitely beforehand and still get the same error code. Funny thing for me: Regardless from which device I am trying to access the magicmirror, I do get the same error address, so somehow the raspi is not able to resolve to the real ip address, at least this is my impression.
    netstat -lnpt delivers:

    Active Internet connections (only servers)
    Proto Recv-Q Send-Q Local Address Foreign Address State PID/Program name
    tcp 0 0* LISTEN -
    tcp6 0 0 :::8080 :::* LISTEN 2566/electron.js
    tcp6 0 0 :::22 :::* LISTEN - `

    I saw that initially I did not extend correctly my address range, so changed this to:

    ipWhitelist: ["", "::ffff:", "::ffff:", "::1"],

    I am still lost and I love the remotecontrol module …

  • Digging one step further:
    My magicmirror has the ip address
    I am using a cable fritz box, i configured it that this ip address has the hostname “magicmirror”.
    I remember that I had to a reboot of the fritzbox 2 days ago, will investigate whether I potentially lost some settings in the fritzbox.
    Funny thing:
    If I try to access directly, I do not get any problem, only if I try to access it with http://magicmirror:8080/remote.html#power-menu
    I do not -yet- understand why…
    BTW: if i ping the magicmirror from the same pc, the address resolving is working:

    PING ( 56 data bytes 64 bytes from icmp_seq=0 ttl=64 time=7.766 ms 64 bytes from icmp_seq=1 ttl=64 time=9.753 ms 64 bytes from icmp_seq=2 ttl=64 time=12.715 ms 64 bytes from icmp_seq=3 ttl=64 time=10.908 ms 64 bytes from icmp_seq=4 ttl=64 time=20.834 ms

    Using the full pseudo domain name `’ does not help…
