Issues sending data via HTTP(s) using Freematics telelogger

Post by daveywatt »

I've been trying to get a simple HTTP post event sent from a FreematicsPlus device.

Sending via UDP is fine, but as soon as I set #define SERVER_PROTOCOL PROTOCOL_HTTPS I get the following errors and an infinite reboot.

I have not changed any other code, other than setting #define SERVER_HOST to my own server endpoint which is simply logging all request received to a file.

Once #define SERVER_PROTOCOL PROTOCOL_HTTPS as been set, the following is output in the console:

Code: Select all

GNSS:OK
OBD:NO

I can confirm that any HTTP requests seem to fail..

Here is the output from a Freematics One + with the sim7600test.ino software:

Code: Select all

SIM7600E OK
IMEI:XXXXXXXXXXX
SIM Card OK
Registering on network...OK
Operator:Telstra #StaySafe Telstra
Obtaining IP address...10.147.174.51
Init HTTPS stack...NO
Connecting...
+CHTTPSOPSE:0

failed
Connecting...
+CHTTPSOPSE:0

failed
Connecting...
+CHTTPSOPSE:0

failed
Connecting...
+CHTTPSOPSE:0
Any word from the developers on this? Could there be an issue with the SIM module on my hardware?

Here is the output from sim5360test.ino.

Same issue it seems.

Its worth noting that I have attempted this connect/send on both the hub.freematics.com:443 endpoint and my own server running HTTPS.

Code: Select all

SIM7600E OK
IMEI:XXXXXXXXXXX
SIM Card OK
Registering on network...OK
Operator:Telstra #StaySafe Telstra
Obtaining IP address...10.140.140.178
Init HTTPS stack...OK
Connecting...OK
Sending request...failed
Connecting...OK
Sending request...failed
Connecting...OK
Sending request...failed

If you power from USB only instead of from OBD port, there is chance your computer's USB port can't supply enough current surge needed by cellular module.

Thanks. Is there a pin diagram available so I can supply 12v power while still testing via USB?

I have attempted this on a 5v/2A output and via a car OBD2 port.

If it helps, the cell connection works fine on stock telelogger.ino software with cell APN set to "telstra.iph" (Telstra SIM) and sim pin specified with PROTOCOL_UDP set.
This is to hub.freematics.com. The hub confirms my connection (showing 1m parked).

As soon as I set the config to PROTOCOL_HTTPS, it fails to connect.

Confirming this is still not working.

I suspect either an issue with the Freematics software or I have a SIM module hardware issue.
I have tried the following steps, both via a USB-C to MicroUSB serial connection that is supplies up to 2A power and via two seperate car OBD2 ports.

1. Cloned the latest Freematics code from Github
2. Loaded the firmware_v5/telelogger folder
3. Set CELL_APN to "telstra.iph" (Telstra SIM)
4. Set SERVER_PROTOCOL to PROTOCOL_HTTPS
5. Upload to device

In all tests, hub.freematics.com never recieves any data.
The end result is always "Error connecting to server" in the console.

After further debugging, I can confirm the issue is triggered/occurs at line 1049:FreematicsNetwork.cpp
(if (sendCommand(0, HTTP_CONN_TIMEOUT, "+CHTTPSOPSE: 0")) {)...

Also, this issue does not occur via WiFI or via SIM PROTOCOL_UDP.

Has anyone been able to get HTTPS working over SIM on their Freematics One +?

Thanks again.

This issue has been resolved thanks to Stanley. He's pushed up a fix to the repo.

Thanks again mate 👍

I also had such problems, but I turned to my friend. It's just that I like to play more in https://mr.bet/at/game/view/demo/wild-water and I better understand this type of game. I think it's great that money can be made easily and quickly.
