I have made the suggested changes and tried the new files posted on this thread. Both give inconsistent results. I don't understand it.
Initially I get error 4, then error 6.
Strange thing is, for some twitter accounts like ladyada or samirsky, if I wait long enough it finally seems to work. With other twitter accounts, like NASA or make, it never gets past the errors.
I tested the IP address and username (http://126.96.36.199/NASA
) in my internet browser on my PC on the same network. Works no problem. Other widgets (alarm clock, weather, etc) all work. So my Ybox2 and ability to create the binary seem to be in working order.
Could it be a problem with the DNS? I see on the widget it gets not only an IP address, but also a DNS address on the network. I don't understand why the widget needs and IP address AND a host name. Isn't this redundant?
I was trying this at work since my Ybox2 didn't like my 3COM router at home. Could it be my work router/network is interfering with getting twitter.com? It works fine on my PC, so I don't understand the issue. Could the assigned DNS address redirect away from twitter? Can I force the widget to use the IP address and not do a DNS lookup for twitter.com? (Maybe by leaving the host name blank?)
