After trying pretty much everything with the Dlink DWR-921, I decided to swap it out with a Digi Connectport X4 with built in 3G module (and Xbee). I had been using it in the office for my Xbee sensor network.
The X4 has solved the problem, and I can now connect to the ES and CCTV remotely, no problem. Although it is a bit of a relic now, 2010 vintage, the speed is still pretty good.
Dlink DWR921 - Of no use for M2M.
Thanks for you help Jeremy
Hi Jeremy, thanks for taking a look at this.
Logging on to the ES (from my Virgin phone hotspot) on SSH, the DNS server is the router, and the system resolves names no problem.
Time/date/timezone is also correct.
The 4G router is a DLink DWR-921, which just takes a SIM. I at some point asked Virgin if the connection would be public, and took screen shots of the CHAT window when they told me YES, it would be accessible. But I'm sure you have had experience trying to get any level of technical information from these representatives. They basically state if you can access Facebook and Google, then what's the problem.
I'm thinking it is probably has a private address, (1.178.148.xxx), and transfers some data. The router is accessible on 1080, brings up the login box, but then just returns to the login box after clicking login. The CCTV management software shows the recorder online, but no image when accessing a camera.
With mango, hitting go on the URL http://nnnn.ddns.net:8008, it reaches the login URL http://nnnn.ddns.net:8008/ui/login but just get the spinning logo.
If I switch to the virgin hotspot on the mobile, everything works.
I may have to go with a Telstra solution from M2M Connectivity or similar.
What provider are you running with?
The remote site is in the bush near Kilkivan Queensland, and I am setting it up as a demo/R&D site for agriculture. I have a business. I've been using Mango for years.
Sorry, I should have said "I won't be using it with the cloud service"
Its not the cache or the ad blocker, much weirder than that.
If I try to access via my office WiFi, I don't get past the spinning icon.
If I then, on the same W8.1 laptop, disconnect from the WiFi, and connect to my android cell phone via the portable hotspot WiFi, I get full access, just by refreshing chrome. !!
Of course, the cell provider OPTUS/Virgin, have no idea what I am talking about, which is expected.
But this all is not a fault of your software, so I don't expect you to spend time on it. Just thought I'd put it out there!
Maybe someone else has some experience in 3G/4G remote connections that has encountered similar before.
Yes have tried many times to update with the same result.
I am having issues with my 4G provider blocking and/or restricting remote access to the site from outside their network, so this may have something to do with it. I will try taking the ES back to a landine internet connection and attempt the updates to see if it is a 4G problem.
Are there any other ports that I need to open and/or forward in the router for Mango updates to occur?
Just for general info:
When I try to access remotely on 8008 from an ADSL connection, the login page appears, and allows me to input the username and password, then the Mango spinny thing just keeps on spinning!. When I do the same on my cell phone, I can log in correctly and have full access. I am having the same issue with remote access to cameras.
Is the GUID used as a identifier for cloud access? (I won't have in on the cloud)
Thanks for your assistance.
HI I have ans ES that I have just deployed on a 4G connection in Australia. I soon after attempted to update, and goth the following message:
"Your instance cannot be upgraded due to versioning problem: Read timed out"
Has anyone seen this before?
I am connecting to it remotely via the 4G connection, and can connect to the internet from site with no problems.
I am on the latest version (5th July).
This is where my image is:
mango@mangoES3297:/opt/mango/overrides$cd opt/mango/overrides/web/modules/mangoUI/web/images mango@mangoES3297:/opt/mango/overrides/web/modules/mangoUI/web/images$ls
In "Edit pages", this is the only code:
<img ng-src="/modules/mangoUI/web/images/KilkivanSat720.jpg" alt="My Image"/>
The image does not display.
Could you maybe check your code and post the location/code as above?
Referring to file stores
Yes they are the folders, "public" and "default".
Now that you have given me the folder locations, I tested the default folder from code in "Edit pages", and this works.
I think I will go ahead and use the file store method now for adding images.
Still having issues with overrides folder, specifically adding images.
I have made custom pages and added images by placing them in the /opt/mango/web/images folder, and specifying the location in dashboard designer (add image) as /images/imagename.jpg
This method works fine.
However the help page for creating custom pages suggests creating a folder in overrides as below:
Adding Your Own Images
If you would like to include your own images on a page you can put them in an image folder in your overrides. Create a new folder at Mango/overrides/web/modules/mangoUI/web/images and place your image files in there. You can then insert the image onto a page using: <img ng-src="/modules/mangoUI/web/images/myImage.png" alt="My Image"/>
This does not work.
Can I just use the method I have used? Will I lose the image after an update?
Also, I see there is now an image picker in dashboard designer, where are these "default" and "public" folders?
Could I please confirm, so if I want to build custom pages using the Dashboard designer and/or the Edit Pages feature, those pages will not be lost after an upgrade? I only need to copy the env.properties file as described in the installation notes?
When creating pages, where is the page stored in the directory structure? Say if I wanted to edit the code with an external editor.
Secondly, I have just found a few bugs with Firefox and IE. Firefox is unable to delete pages, and does not show an Editor box in Edit pages. In IE, the Dashboard designer is unuseable, and does not show an Editor box in Edit pages.
Chrome seems to work with all features.
