Unreachable address, RA+

Well, I haven't had much time to thinker with my tank for a while but decided to get a bit more invested. Somehow, I can't connect to the portal anymore -

Unreachable address - still using the same parameters as it did for since early 2016 -
http://astralmind-reef.myreefangel.com:2000/ no password

I haven't touched the code at all since early 2016 and thinking of it, I last got an email alter back in later December 2016 (yikes!).

Typing the above address eventually times out as opposed to connecting to the RA.

Only the green light is on the adapter, slowly blinking, the device is showing up in my router (same router, no change there either) as actively connected, same registered IP with proper port forwarding.

So no change in router, no change in code or RA hardware.... any thoughts ? Thanks for the help!

Several things happen between that time.
The DDNS server was brought down, so you cannot use that ddns anymore.
The portal server got moved to a cloud server and the new host needs to be setup on the wifi attachment:

Try that and let's see if we get portal updates again.

Thanks for the crazy fast reply Roberto - just checking though, you linked the right thread ? It seems to be from 2014 which would be much earlier than the last time I updated the firmware for the Wifi adjustment (purchased in summer 2016). I feel like flashing that file would be a roll back to a much older version of the FW ? The adapter is connecting to my network though so it sounds like a different issue ?

Awesome, typing the internal IP now works. Any alternative do the DDNS server that was brought down ?

Yes. I maintain a DDNS option for everybody to use. I do not run the service, but I do own the domain name that people are free to use. I do not plan on shutting it down at all (I use it myself).

The date is a little old, but it's still relevant.
