Alexa + node red +android + alexa

I was able to install node red on an old Android phone I have and I was also able to install all sort of nodes including:

  • node-red-contrib-amazon-echo
  • node-red-contrib-alexa-remote2

All looks fine and on my PC by running the flow that I want to run on my phone I get what I want.
Here is what I want to do:

  • Alexa "What is the [sensor name] temperature"
  • HTTP request is sent and the temperature is retrieved
  • The temperature is output on the Alexa

The HTTP request and retrieval is working on my phone also.
I think the problem is the port that Alexa uses (port 80) and my phone does not allow to send a message out through port 80.

I have all sort of debug nodes, one of them after the Amazon Echo Hub node and it does not get anything.

I don't have root access to my phone to use iptables to forward ports.
What do I do?

Thank you

On my Android device i just forward port 80 to 8090(or what ever port is configured in echo node), i do it with ice cold apps port forwarder, that runs at start up.

That is excellent. I will try that.
Thank you so much
