Alexa not working
#1
Anyone else having problems with Alexa interface.  Last night it just stopped working.  Get message "There was a problem with the requested skills response".   Anyone have any ideas?
Thanks.

So if I turn off windows firewall, it works. When on, what do I need to let through for this to work ?

Presumably it's the connection back to your system from AWS, so you'd need to open the HTTP or HTTPS port that you are using to connect back from there. You'd just need it on the system where the web server instance you are connecting to from AWS is running.

Hi Dean,
It's the windows defender firewall. Perhaps stopping a program/service cqc needs. I'm using port 81 for the cqc web server, and it's forwarded from the router to the cqc server.

Most likely it's stopping the incoming port 81 which AWS is using to connect back to the web server. Remember it goes out from the Echo device and comes back in to the web server. Even if it works locally, there can be different rules for local connections vs connections from the outside.
