Problems with 2 RS-Systems in 1 Network

Postby kasseals » Thu Feb 05, 2015 5:05 pm

Hello,

Setup:
one rs is running on the Raspberry Pi (Raspbian) as a "server" 24/7 online.
On my Notebook, there is a second rs, not always running.
They each have a single used ID.

Problem:
the server ist 24/7 online, but his "friends" from outside see the server as offline.
As soon as the rs on my notbook goes online, too, the connections from outside to the "server" are possible"
The rs on notebook findes the rs one raspi instantan.

Every helpful idea is welcome,
Jonas

Please check http://retroshare.wikidot.com/en:connect for ways to make your server’s RS connect with its friends.

I’m thinking maybe it starts working when you run RS on your laptop because it can act as a bridge of sorts to punch through your router’s NAT (if both your RS instances have DHT enabled).

Thx, Distro,

but: after all (the testing....) the problem is still the same.

please tell me following if this is correct in your setup.

Both have the same user id (same private certificate) ?
Both have unique locations?
Both are friended vice versa?
Discovery is on?
your LAN IP is static on both nodes?
Both use different Port's?
Both have a working Port Forward from your Router to your static IP's?

As you said it - thats, why I run out of options.
Currently,
the rs@Laptop (which is Win8) gets NAT and DHT both green.
the rs@raspberrypi (which is raspbian) NAT ist yellow and DHT ist red - and I am looking forward to good advice, because from my point of view, everyting is properly set...

Thanks,
jonas

Your friends can't find you if DHT is red. Maybe your are missing the bdboot.txt file.

I think your problem is as following:

your raspberry does not have DHT working. so your friends won't find the ip of your raspberry pi without help.

When you go online with your win system, you connect via lan to your rasperry. your win-rs system starts DHT and connects to your friends.
Now your win system tells your friends the ip of your raspberry via Discovery.


Why is DHT not working on your raspberry?
is DynDNS a solution for your Raspberry? this would make DHT unnecessary for a static device.

Yes, looks like you described.
DynDNS might be the next step - but I am still curious why DHT is not working and what it is, I didnt got right.
