The notification.sh appears to be a simulation of the result of an Orion Subscription - and therefore needs to be posted to the port Cygnus is listening on - which is usually localhost:5050 - assuming you are running Cygnus on localhost.

Your couldn't connect to host message indicates that either you have not started Cygnus on localhost or you have configured an alternate port. Ensure you have used the environment variable CYGNUS_API_PORT=5080 somewhere or the agent.conf file holds a line cygnus-ngsi.sources.http-source.port = 5050

The subscription it is simulating is supposed to be something along the lines of When X occurs send a notification to cygnus - Therefore I'm guessing that localhost:5050 is the location where Cygnus is supposed to be listening.

When setting up a REAL subscription and running Orion it needs to be something like:

 curl -X POST \ 'http://{{orion:port}}/v2/subscriptions/' \ -H 'Content-Type: application/json' \ -d '{ "description": "Notify Cygnus of all context changes", "subject": { "entities": [ { "idPattern": ".*" } ] }, "notification": { "http": { "url": "http://{{cygnus:port}}/notify" }, "attrsFormat": "legacy" }, "throttling": 5 }' 

Replace {{orion:port}} and {{cyngnus:port}} as necessary (this assumes you are not using a fiware-header or fiware-servicepath yet...)

You can then update an existing entity with the PATCH command:

 curl -X PATCH \ 'http://{{orion}}/v2/entities/<entity-id>/attrs' \ -H 'Content-Type: application/json' \ -d ' { "price":{"type":"Integer", "value": 89} }' 

Obviously replace <entity-id> and the -d payload with your data.
