ESP32 - ESPNOW: Peer interface is invalid

Postby Pcborges » Sun May 02, 2021 2:14 pm

Hi, I am trying to implement ESP NOW in a way that I only need to enter at my master the MAC address of the peer.
Then I send the master’s MAC to the peer so the peer can register the master’s received MAC.
I succeeded to send the Master’s MAC to the peer but so far I failed to have the peer register the master MAC.
Console printout and the code of the peer is as below, the Master works fine.

Code: Select all

0:56:40.557 -> INCOMING READINGS
10:56:40.557 -> Temperature: 26.00 ºC
10:56:40.557 -> Humidity: 77.00 %
10:56:40.557 -> Pressure: 1033.00 hPa
10:56:40.557 -> Master's Mac address: 24:6F:28:46:95:B0
10:56:40.886 -> Bytes received: 32
10:56:40.886 -> Temporary buffer: 24:6F:28:46:95:B0
10:56:40.886 -> |---> MAC broadcastAddress: 24:6F:28:46:95:B0
10:56:40.886 -> E (12358) ESPNOW: Peer interface is invalid
10:56:40.886 -> Failed to add peer
Code:

Code: Select all

#include <esp_now.h>
#include <WiFi.h>

// INIT MAC Address of your receiver 
uint8_t broadcastAddress[6] = { 0 };

// Define variables to be sent
