Hi, I've installed a new Python function to monitor the WiFi and (eventually) do something when it goes down (eg cycle WiFi or reboot). So that problem is parked for the moment while I gather data.
While I was testing my new function, I stumbled across yet another problem. My new function pings three other devices on the Wimborne Model Town local network and if none of these can be contacted, it logs a "WiFi Down". If one or more can be pinged, it simply lists their status (Up or Down). As it happens, I picked the Model Town's local Webserver as one of the three devices. This is only accessible from the local network side and not the Internet (other than via a VPB Server). This device has consistently been logged as "Down" and I cannot ping it from any other device on the Town's local network. However, people using phones on site and logging in via one of the two on-site WiFi Access Points can open the Sites Web Pages. I've put a diagram showing the relevant part of the network at: http://hadrian-way.co.uk/Misc/WMT_Network.pdf If you look at the area labelled 'Railway Room Store', you will see that access from the Internet comes in from the left ('To / From Office Router') and into the lower of the two 5-Port Ethernet Switches. Once through the VPN Server, traffic is routed to the upper of the two 5-Port Ethernet Switches. I cannot ping from any device to the WMT Webserver, including from the VPN Server, but on-site users who access via the Antennas can get the web pages. Any ideas what could be causing this? We've tried power cycling the server and all the associated switches. -- Terry Coles -- Next meeting: Online, Jitsi, Tuesday, 2021-08-03 20:00 Check to whom you are replying Meetings, mailing list, IRC, ... http://dorset.lug.org.uk New thread, don't hijack: mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org
