Tough question. Can you provide a snapshot of your IFTT configuration? Are there differences from our tutorial?

Resolved the problem and got it to work. Hard to explain. Dealt with tunnel Ngrok generated and how to enter it right. You may want to show example on doing this vs. using your subdomain.
