    Hi Rick,

    As you probably already found out, it's a Windows only issue since it doesn't send content-type at all. I'm going to add your solution here if others came across the same issue

    which is to rename the *.py file extension to *.txt.

    Thanks for the tip!

    I had the same problem (Windows) trying to upload a new PY weather station (error uploading), and renamed to .TXT..... worked great!

    I am getting an error when trying to upload and the txt version of the file.

    The error reported in the log is as follows:

    2018-11-17 17:29:53,001 - ERROR - rmHTTPResourceApi4Dev:68 - API:ParserUpload: Missing required headers

    NameError: global name 'stationAddress' is not defined

    One version of the python code (the one that was emailed to me by Nicholas) has a line that defines the stationAddress as and another that I copied from github has
    They both cause the error. I changed the ip to the actual ip of my station and continue to get the same error.

    I think something got corrupted or replaced when you downloaded the file or renamed it. I just downloaded the raw file from github and uploaded to RainMachine and worked perfectly. I'd suggest you download it again from raw link and try to upload:

    I figured it out.  The problem was the way I changed the file to a txt file.  What I did was change it from a py file to a txt file.  I was trying to upload weatherlinkip-parser.txt not

    It's working now.
