Re: What's blocking port 21?

Infuriatingly this is happening again, for no apparent reason...same problem as before, so am doing another virus scan. It started at about 6:45am, so I don't know what changed at that time to stop port 21 from letting data out. Everytime I reboot, data gets through briefly, then stops, as though so...

Re: What's blocking port 21?

Morning Thanks for the tip....I left a virus scan running overnight, and it found & removed 5 potential problems....I also unticked the realtime FTP boxes, and rebooted. Rebooting sped up, and things seem to be uploading now...I have reticked the realtime boxes, and that's working ok too. I am g...

Re: What's blocking port 21?

Re: What's blocking port 21?

Are you using active or passive ftp? How do you know that the problem is specifically that something is blocking outbound connections to port 21? What does the Cumulus ftp log show? Hi Steve I'm using passive I believe. I can only assume something is, I can't think what else would be wrong. It affe...

Re: What's blocking port 21?

Ok, so the above doesn't seem to have been the problem....just a coincidence

Overnight my PC installed Windows updates, rebooted itself, and I am having FTP errors again, with dynamic IP addresses

Re: What's blocking port 21?

Well this is strange....I stopped my NIC's from being static, and changed both to dynamic, and not had an FTP error in the last 45 minutes

Can anyone explain that?

Re: What's blocking port 21?

I don't think I have ever had port 20 open, and it's been mostly fine for the last 5 years....this is something that has started very recently

Re: What's blocking port 21?

Bizarrely whilst posting the above message, it would appear that Cumulus updated my website, but it's back to being blocked again

What's blocking port 21?

I'm having an infuriating time. I can't FTP from port 21, something seems to be blocking it upon boot up. Neither Cumulus & Blue Iris can't upload anything to my website. The firewall is off, but I had already added Port 21 to that, so it's not that. It's can't be the router or my ISP as other P...

Re: WMR88 query

Oh right thanks....that makes it abit more versatile I guess....so they all transmit to the base station?...or to a central transmitter?

Just thinking of how things need to be placed and laid out

WMR88 query

How do the sensors (ie wind) of the WMR88 connect to the transmitting unit?....are they wired like the Fine Offset, or wireless? Just wondering how far away I could put the wind instruments from the transmitter, as at the moment I have an extension lead for my Fine Offset so the wind instruments are...

Re: Maplins selling Oregon

Does anyone have an opinion on the above question?

The reason I ask is because I see Maplins have the WMR88 on sale again at £79.99 now

Re: Irregular Application can't load errors

I thought I had replied to this....sorry. Thanks for checking it out Steve, much appreciated. I've done some googling, but nothing conclusive has come to light though unfortunately......it seems to be several DLL's that could be broken, or causing conflict. Things have been stable for about a week n...

Irregular Application can't load errors

I sometimes can't load the Cumulus app, and thought it was time I tried to find out why, and what is happening. I seem to often get errors in Cumulus saying that it can't open the current month log file. Seems almost like a disk read error as the file isn't open anywhere else. I don't think the hard...
