Hello.

I am trying to update my xbmc library, from my raspberry pi on the same network.

i have made a bash file like this:

Code:
#!/bin/bash

USERNAME=xbmc
PASSWORD=xbmc
SERVER=192.168.1.50
PORT=80

wget --user=$USERNAME --password=$PASSWORD --delete-after --header='Content-Type: application/json' --post-data='{"jsonrpc": "2.0", "method": "VideoLibrary.Scan"}' http://$SERVER:$PORT/jsonrpc

but when i execute it i get:

Code:
[email protected]:/opt# ./update.sh
--2014-05-20 13:46:55--  http://192.168.1.50/jsonrpc
Connecting to 192.168.1.50:80... failed: Connection refused.
[email protected]:/opt#

I also tried changing the port to 8080.

I have enabled xbmc to be controled http, and also enabled "use a HTTP-proxyserver for internet access. Why is the connection getting refused??

I can goto:
http://192.168.1.50:80
and enter xbmc as user and pass.. no problem there!

Thanks alot for any help.. this is driving me nuts!
