Problem with connection to blynk and raspi 3

#1

I been browsing through the forum to solve my issue. This is probably repeated issue but I still cant solve it.

This is the error i get when trying to connect

pi@raspberrypi:~ $ blynk-client 2f9116df0bb94dee8e6d8431765655fa

one of the suggestion in the forum is to change the port number but nowhere mention how to do this. (sorry if i cant find it if there is) Where can i do this? I don’t want to define it on my sketch, everytime.

this would be easier to do in arduino though but this time i need to use Raspi.

As per searching - https://community.blynk.cc/search?q=nodejs%20port%208441%20order%3Alatest

Depends where it is installed on your RPi… search for this file blynk-node.js on your RPi and change it as shown here… to 9443 or 443

BTW, since you do need basic config in each sketch anyhow, there is no reason not to define it there. At least it gives more control when switching between Cloud and Local Server, etc.
