Can't access http server of kodi on port 8080


My kodi box is running on raspberry pi. It use been updated to version 2017-01. It uses a Fixed IP address ( that I can ping. I can’t ssh anymore to osmc and from time the time the yatse client - krypton is disconnected. This problem doesn’t happen regularly but is really annoying. I can’t even access the http Web Server at this address : even if the Http Server - Remote Access is enabled.

What could be the issue(s) and suggestions to resolve that ?

Many thanks in advance for your help



Please provide logs:

Thanks Tom.

Hi Tom,

Here is the log uploaded from osmc on the SD card : gist:934d16070320d0d44ba49beb90572c20 · GitHub




Jan 20 12:21:21 osmc sshd[397]: Server listening on port 22.
Jan 20 12:21:21 osmc sshd[397]: Server listening on :: port 22.

So it looks ssh is up and running, what ssh client are you using.

Have you tried access the http server on port 80?

Thanks Tom.

I try to ssh from a MacOS machine

ssh -vv osmc@

Within Google Chrome, I can’t access the Web Server using the following URL :

I’m also trying to use use curl without success

  • curl --header ‘Content-Type: application/json’ --data-binary ‘{ “id”: 1, “jsonrpc”: “2.0”, “method”: “Player.GetActivePlayers” }’ ‘

To access osmc using “Kodi Kripton” remote client, I have to reboot my android mobile


Dilthedog has just spotted this:

Jan 20 12:21:38 osmc http-time[295]: Unable to set time using HTTP query - no response received from servers.

Are you able to ping your router from your pi?

Also it may be worth trying a different network cable or port on your router.

Thanks Tom.

As I can’t ssh anymore to the osmc - raspberry box, I can’t check if it can access the router.

I confirm that I can use the option “Update OS” within the menu of OSMC and this is what I did last to update it to version 2017.12-1.

I will try to reinstall it and as you suggested use a different ethernet cable


You can access the commandline via power and exit and using keyboard keeping pressing the escape key. You should be presented with a console prompt. more details can be found here:

Thanks Tom.

I have reinstalled osmc and I don’t expriment such problems anymore. I can ssh or use also the web browser.
Many thanks for your help

glad to hear its sorted.
