I'm pretty new to using NodeRed but so far I've found it mostly easy to get started. I'm stuck at one point though. I'm using the Openhab2 library which I see many other people using with no problem. I added a OpenhabIn node, set up the coniguration node to connect to my server, and I'm able to select the item I'd like to monitor. I can get the list of items from the server and tested that by creating a new item and it showed up just fine.
However when I publish the flow I get no state updates. Is there something I haven't set up correctly? A port that needs to be open perhaps? I'm running OpenHAB on the same machine as the NodeRed instance. It's a Linux 16.04 setup running node.js version 8.15.1 and npm version 6.4.1 and node-red version 0.20.2. Any help is appreciated.
