Twonky 7.3 making permanent traffic to api.twonky.com

Post by Tron04 » Sat May 24, 2014 11:44 am

Hi,
my installation permanently accesses api.twonky.com with about 20kbit up/download per second

First request is:
GET /rest/micro/container?name=&tsin=PV01 HTTP/1.1

Then:
GET /rest/nexus/onlineStatus?tsin=PV01 HTTP/1.1

It does these two web requests in an endless loop, as long as the twonky service is running.

I then downgraded to version 7.2.7 and this strange behaviour is gone.

Any ideas? Bug?

I wonder if they are related to http://twonkyserver.com/
introduced in version 7.3
it appears to help those who cant figure out what ip twonky is running on
think about the nas's that come with it preinstalled

Yes maybe. But check with a packetsniffer. The amount of traffic generated is really not normal and also permanent.
I now went back to version 7.2.8, which I found here in this forum (not yet on your onedrive).

By the way: Where does the V7.2.8 come from? Do you have some good connections to PacketVideo? 8)

I only know of 7.2.8 from the release notes, not all builds are made available
in the past I asked them many times to include all release notes
as I like to know things =)

This is in 7.0.x

# media fusion server url Please Do NOT change it manually
mediafusionserverurl=http://my.twonky.com

Here are the settings I know that could/will generate traffic
I know that one could, change them to = localhost
cant remember if leaving them blank works or not

This is in 7.1.x

# media fusion server url Please Do NOT change it manually
mediafusionserverurl=http://my.twonky.com

# URL location for downloading device database updates
autoupdateurl=http://update.twonky.com/update.db

This is in 7.2.x

# URL to a web application for the online services configuration
profileserviceurl=http://profile.twonky.com

This is in 7.3.x

# URL to a web application for the online services configuration
profileserviceurl=http://profile.twonky.com

# Have Twonky Sever register its LANIP:PORT
# to enable devices in the home to find it via this url (twonkyserver.com)
twonkyserver_registry=http://www.twonkyserver.com

I was doing some things with 7.2.8 and 7.3 and noticed this from a get_all

Code: Select all

http://x.x.x.x:9000/rpc/get_all
mediafusionserverurl=http://api.twonky.com

what s interesting is, its not in the ini file
it will work from a get_option
and returns http://api.twonky.com
/rpc/get_option?mediafusionserverurl
but it wont let you change it with a set_option
it returns PROPERTY NOT FOUND!
/rpc/set_option?mediafusionserverurl=
my guess it was forgotten about, or its there for legacy, maybe something to do with twonky beam, just a guess
.
