OSError: -202

  • I'm trying to get the time from an NTP server, but I keep getting OSError: -202 MOST of the time. Every once in a while it would work.

    Took me a while to figure it out, but finally did. So wanted to document it here.

    What isn't clear in the examples and documentation is that even though you obviously have a good internet connect because you can download the code from UIFLOW, when your program runs, you need to reconnect the WiFi.

    Once I did that as part of the initialization, I could get the NTP time just fine.

    thank you feedback. we will add this note info to the tutorial.

  • Hi there,
    Can you give me a link to this tutorial?
    Or maybe a snippet of the code so that I can see the steps to take?
    I have been searching for a way to do an NTP time synch on an M5StickC for a while now, preferably using Blockly and UIFlow, but yet to find a reliable answer.
