PP1 Install apears to have changed Router Settings RRS feed

  • Question

  • In installed PP1 without a hitch.  The new connectors also installed on my clients with very little problem.  The one unexplained change/problem that has occurred has been with my router configuration.  Where before the install of PP1 each of my router configuration steps were working fine, after the installation the "Configuring your router" section has the status of configured but not verified.  Apparently WHS still knows that my router supports UPnP but it does not recognize the port forwarding properly.  I have a Dlink DIR-655 and it has been performing perfectly as far as I can tell.  On the install of WHS originally, I did have to manually set up the port forwarding rules.  But after I got them in everything worked fine.  After finding this problem with PP1 I reset the router, re inputted the port forwarding rules but WHS still does not get passed the router configuration test without issuing an alert.

    Does anyone have ideas about this?  Do you think this rises to the level of a bug?  Is anyone else using at Dlink DIR-655?

    Thanks

    I have a D-Link DIR655 with port forwarding configured manually. It has given me no problems (I don't trust UPnP). I installed PP1 the day it was released and have been using WHS as normal since. No issues at all.

    I think the team has done a good job with PP1. I am looking forward to the final release.

  • Just for the record, my problem was soley with the router. I did two firmware updates on my router and that is where the problem turned out to be from. That is what i meant at the time when asked if i had bugged, i replied that i didn't know where the bug was. I was getting the errors without powerpack installed as well. I manually fowared port 80/80,443/443,and 4125/4125 to my server address. That solved the verifying  problem. Then i went from yellow to red, but that is for a different thread. Anyway not a bug in powerpack for me.

    If you can see the names and address's of all computers See what your server address is and enable port 80 443 and 4125. Port 4125 wasn't in my router settings by default. I had to add it manually The reason they are 80/80 443/443 4125/4125 if you look at the top of my settings, you will see a private port and a public port 80 443 and 4125 is enanled in both

  • I think that anything that no longer works or is having issues after installing PP1 is worth submitting a bug report on.

  • I am having similar problem with a trendnet tew-432brp router. My problem started after securing a machine that is running wireless. I do not know if it is a power pack problem or router or both, anyway i am reproducing your bug

  • I am having the exact same issue. How do I remove PP1?

  • Did anybody on this thread bother to file a bug with repro steps?

    I have the exact same router as you.  There are two things you should choose from.  First, I personally would use the UPnP setting because it works well with mine.  After updating to PP1 you will need to unconfigure then re-setup the router with the UPnP setting. 

     

    Your second option would be to use the manual setting and just click unconfigure for the router option. 

     

    I don't see a reason to file a bug here unless neither of these two options work.

  • I had the same problem but It started working after I went thru details.  It just may be you have to wait a few minutes.

    I have the GamerLounge DGL-4500 D-Link which is very similar to the DIR-655 and have the same popup warning about the port forwarding issue. The original install for WHS setup the Dlink without a hitch, but as several people are reporting, the PP1 seems to have changed something in the router. I too wish I could come across a simplified step by step process for getting rid of the warnings. If I knew exactly what the issue was, I would also file a bug report.

    You can file a bug report on Connect without knowing exactly what caused it.  Just explain what you did and hopefully the WHS can repro it and fix it.

  • I posted my router settings this morning. If you emailed me it must have went to my junk mail and i emptied it earlier. Or haven't got it yet. My router settings are not a screen shot. It is text, that is why my mac address's are not showing and the two computers whole name is not showing. I deleted them. My server names are right. If you notice i have two servers running, but only one configured in the router. server 2

    Try copying and pasting your router interface and see if that works. I might could be a little more detailed if we had exact same router. I have no idea what your router interface looks like.

    Where i set my ports up is.main page/click access/click virtual server. Let me know if you get it fixed or not. We will keep working on it until we do.

    We can give out but we can''t give up
