Yes, Just installed fresh from the last version, and have that same thing happening on Safari/Mac Hassio 075.3

btw, when I click Open webUi it opens my duckdns.org address, and the browser cant connect. If I enter my local Hassio.local address it opens fine. Albeit with an empty screen which tries to connect each 5 seconds or so…

How do it get it to open via duckdns? Should I add that port in the portforwarding ?

I’m getting this too… is there any reason why it shouldn’t work on mobile?

I just installed v3.0 of Log Viewer on Hass v0.80.3. The install seemed to go without issue, and I can connect to the defined port, but I get a 'Disconnected" then a “Retry in 3s…” count down before looping back to “Disconnected” and “Retry” again. A restart produces the same.

Any thoughts as to what might be wrong here?


I am only getting this with the iOS app. I did log an issue when this addon was first released and frenck recently replied that fixing this is not a priority.

Hey David,

I’m getting this in a Safari on a Mac connected to the Log Viewer port.

I guess, if this isn’t a priority to fix, I’ll just un-install.


You can all see the issue here https://github.com/hassio-addons/addon-log-viewer/issues/5 and maybe add your 2c


I note that your issue related to iOS, but mine was on a Mac. I just posted a new issue to GitHub.

I bet it’s the same issue just the same.
Just tried on my mac and it’s not working there either… same as iOS and same as you.

I was using this add-on on my hass.io setup. I moved my homeassistant to docker, but couldn’t figure out how to setup this add-on. Can you help?

i guys, i just installed add-on and i put that on panel frame, but if i’m not into it , it don’t track past logs, only log started when i m in, not sense, can you help me?

That’s how it works…

ok, not sense for me, i want to view past log also.
