wiana.settings Edit

After making changes in Wiana it should be reflected in /etc/wiana.settings Type cat /etc/wiana.settings to get a listing WianaSettings

Automated signal testing Edit Edit

e: [MeshAPuser] MeshBox access via wiana

I don't use Locustworld at work and have no connection to the Mesh. However, was under the impression that addresses were translated so I could putty in from the internet.

The wiana network does not map directly into Internet address space, external connections are translated and will perhaps eventually slot into an ipv6 subnet

All your adresses only resolves to your uplink public IP (to the uplink gateway they use if you have more than one).

Two meshboxes Edit

I logged in to both boxes and set the TUNNELTYPE:IP , (it was set to PPP on meshbox1 and did not exist on meshbox2)

I can now do a remotemanagement from meshbox2 and I see: {{{ remotemanagement Thu, 16 Sep 2004 12:11:03 +0100 Thu Sep 16 11:11:03 UTC 2004 Time updated AOK ACK 7608 received from Hardware key is: 362e2e394bc8882fe463b6f53374977f

  Ultra key is: 362e2e394bc8882fe463b6f53374977f

Stats processing. Done. }}}

If I do the same from meshbox1 I see: {{{ remotemanagement Time cached RUN

Does that look ok? If I leave it a few mins and look at the wiana pages I still see Attention: 7 remote operations scheduled for meshbox1? However the pending operations for meshbox2 seem to have worked?
