Cannot connect to iconnect

Post by baileyhines » Sat Sep 15, 2012 7:51 pm

I cannot connect to my iconnect unit. Keeps asking for ID and password and when I put it in just keeps asking. I have rebooted several times. The unit is working fine but I have not been able to connect for several months. This started after last upgrade. Any suggestions?

Not sure what "ssh" is, but everything was working fine up until a month ago. Now I cannot get into the web interface to update the iconnect or to do anything. Data is still being sent to weatherunderground. I have rebooted the iconnect, dsl gateway several time and that does not help. I have also replace the gateway with no change.

you could try to open an ssh session with your meteohub server.
putty is the program you can use -- search the forum how to do that
with
ps -x
you could check the running http server

2156 ? S<s 0:46 /usr/sbin/thttpd -C /etc/thttpd.conf
2158 ? S<s 0:14 /usr/sbin/thttpdbackup -C /etc/thttpd-backup.conf


another thing to try is to install WINSCP (free program) and check the logs in
/var/log

Maybe you find something about a corrupt filesystem

Sorry if I am asking the obvious, but are you using the default user id:meteohub, password:meteohub?

Had a bad chip, reinstalled software and now everything is running fine.
