Remote Access - Router Config Failure RRS feed

  • Question

  • Getting some odd behavour i believe with Vail and my Router

    Setup Vail on Tuesday and the auto config of my router worked fine straight out of the box

    but yesterday evening i got a alert from Vail that remote access had failed - tried to get it to reconfigure and it failed - several times

    Turned vail off and this morning it is now working after running the config wizard although still getting the login failures - so possibly unrelated - not sure

    on checking my router logs it appears that vail is trying to login to my router directly or the router is seeing it as this - it started doing it at the same time i got the alert - bit before 22:00

    Router is Dg834Gv5 - access via wired connection only

    Also vail is trying to set UPnp every 30 seconds or so is this necessary

    Sample of router log below - vail ip is 10.1.3.8 (dont ask why i have got an odd ip range its a long story to do with kaspersky!! which i no longer have)

    Is anybody else seeing something similar and getting remote access failures or not?

    I know V1 was a bit hit and miss on remote access but this was on my old router that i have just replaced so was hoping for a smoother ride with V2 :)


    2 home servers plus vail test server 10tb storage combined

  • I've lost access as well this morning. the domain resolves. I can display
    locally. I'm uninstalling yesterdays updates (and changed the setting to
    download and let me select what to install) to see if one of those is
    responsible.

  • Please don't uninstall anything, Barb. Because Vail also relies on Live Domains, a problem on their end can result in problems elsewhere. And it looks like there may be a problem on their end, because V1 users are also having issues this morning:

  • I have a WHS 1 machine on a separate network (separate cable mode, separate
    router). That was still working. Which was why I considered that it might be an
    update. Also, both my homeserver.com domains were resolving and a tracert worked
    (yes, I know about DNS caching). and no, my IP address has not changed.

  • Barb, does manual router configuration work? (I've always used manual router configuration.) Can you drop me an email (address in my profile, don't forget to remove the anti-spam device) and I'll send you my vanity URL.  We can at least see if my Vail box is visible from the internet. :)

  • Unfortunately I did not come to a computer between 1am and 7am, so I didn’t get to see this, and cannot reproduce it here with Vail or my WHS v1.

  • I am having similarly flaky vail/router issues consistently.  i've tried DHCP and static IPs.  Static seems to work better, but not without occasional router errors reported in Vail.  My question question is this:  Is it generally better to use a dynamic or static IP for Vail?  What factors are at play?  thanks!
