Ok, I hate to admit this, but I’m baffled as to why that example is failing. It really should be working. You do need to change the server IP address (DL) on your XBee to 129.123.41.212 because the server’s IP address has changed. Other than that, everything looks great to me… but the server isn’t responding to the request.

So, in the meantime, don’t use that example to try to send data to the EnviroDIY portal. Instead, use the EnviroDIY logger library in the ModularSensors library. There are a lot of sensors that the library already supports and we’d love your contributions if you want to add more.

To use ModularSensors, you’ll need a whole bunch of other libraries installed. You can get them all here: https://github.com/EnviroDIY/Libraries.

The coding structure has changed enough that you cannot just paste the “code snippet” for your site into the example, but it sounds like you’ve already figured out how to get the GUID’s you need, so you shouldn’t have trouble placing them where they need to go.

Please let me know if that doesn’t work for you! If you want to try making the post requests by hand, I’d recommend the ‘Postman’ app for google chrome. Make sure you add in the request body; it looks like that’s why your other test to the server failed.
