SSL timeout with Netatmo (& possibly more)


My Setup:

  • Home Assistant : 0.91.3 on
  • DHCP server addon
  • PiHole server add

For a week I have started to get SSL Timeout with the Netatmo module. This happens roughly after 24h of the computer being rebooted. Every time I reboot the computer the problem is fixed.

I really don’t know how to investigate this issue further.

It doesn’t seem to be a network wide issue, as the rest of my devices can access the API of Netatmo. It looks local to the machine, though I have not been able to confirm that. I have also when Netatmo API is unavailable problems to access other SSL service like Duck DNS or PushBullet.

How can I get access to the root server (the one running docker) to be able to debug connection? I’d like to be able to modify the code being executed on the raspberry pi to find out more.

Same problem here

I finally fixed the issue. I found that the problem was that on the Raspberry PI are being hosted:

  • Home Assistant
  • DHCP Server
  • PiHole

I read it was not recommended to have the RaspberryPi using itself as a DNS server through PiHole. So I set it on a static IP with static DNS.
