Get input from dashboard-form and set IP address in http get

I'm trying to work out some basic functionality issues.

No dice. Same error msg.

TypeError: Invalid URL

For fun, I've removed the URL and replaced with http://{{msg.payload.ipaddress}} or http://{{{msg.payload.ipaddress}}}
Same error.

I've set the hostname to
My output box on the dashboard is showing correctly.
