    I appear to have the same problem. Last good connection was early on the 28/09/08. Up until that point, it seemed to be working fine. A reboot had no effect. Is this problem widespread or should I be doing some detailed fault finding. IP connection from the Tivo seems fine.

    Thanks Steve

    hey mate give this a go ?

    I went reading here about transparent proxies:
    http://www.oztivo.net/twiki/bin/view...entProxyServer

    i went through all this last year being pretty shure my isp didnt use such a thing, did these changes to the tivo files and now i can make calls again give it a go:


    1. The easiest and generally best method.
    You need to manually edit the config files which name the Emulator (See HowToEditFilesUsingJoe for help on editing). These arer /etc/oztivo.conf and /etc/tclient.conf. oztivo.conf may not exist on some old versions of the OzTiVo image, if this is the case, then just ignore this step. You will need to telnet into your oztivo and do the following:

    run the command "rw" to make the disk writable;
    use an editor (e.g the joe editor) and edit /etc/oztivo.conf (if it exists): change emulatorport=80 to emulatorport=9090 and
    use an editor and edit /etc/tclient.conf: find and change the line starting with #127::65.49.60.197:80::: and change it to 127::65.49.60.197:9090::: then change the line with 127::127.0.0.1:8000::: to #127::127.0.0.1:8000:::
    run the command "ro" to make the disk read-only;
    reboot the box. and try a daily call.

    maybe or isps are mucking around
    good luck with it i hope it has fixed my probs ? only time will tell

    Hi Vex - Thanks for your response. It wasn't the proxy, but you got me thinking.

    Turns out that I could not ping www.oztivo.net although I could ping the IP (65.49.60.197) directly owing to the name server in /etc/resolv.conf not appearing to work.

    It was 61.88.88.88 (ns.optus.net.au) so I changed it to the DNS server I use for bigpond cable and now everything is fine. I'm not sure if I missed specifying the DNS during setup and why it suddenly stopped working.

    Looks like either the Optus name server is not working, or they got tired of providing service to Telstra clients

    There is something weird going on. I'm having the same problem and have had for a few days now.

    Making the changes that Vex put in his post made it work this morning but then down again as I post this. Changing DNS hasn't done anything in my case.

    I suggest that there is something up with www.oztivo.net

    Call failing here also (tclient log included)

    tclient log file as attached (tivoid removed)

    Any help / advice would be appreciated

    Cheers

    There are 2 possibilities either some new proxies or that Optus may be
    having some Nameserver issues.

    Those that are having trouble connecting, you may want to alter your
    /etc/hosts file. replace the line:
    131.244.9.101 minnie minnie.tuhs.org

    with:

    65.49.60.197 www.oztivo.net

    Also change your /etc/oztivo.conf file so that the emulatorport= line says
    emulatorport=9090 (if it doesn't already)

    Reboot and then try a call again.

    Peter.

    Try replacing www.oztivo.net with 65.49.60.197 in /etc/oztivo.conf reboot and try again.

    Failing that try some of the transparent proxy tests and networking tests.

    Thanks

    replacing www.oztivo.net with 65.49.60.197 in /etc/oztivo.conf fixed the issue

    must be dns issues

    Cheers
