router & port problems / Re: HFS stopped working after move
« on: November 28, 2016, 05:10:47 AM »
Yes, I'm confident it's not the software as well, nor the router.  That's evident because if I transport the PC and router back to their original location (in another city 20 miles away, with a different ISP), HFS works again as before. 

I just hoped someone would have an idea what the problem is, and how I can work it out.

router & port problems / Re: HFS stopped working after move

I don't really have two HFS server machines, strictly speaking.  What I meant was that, for diagnosing this problem I reinstalled HFS on a second PC (after shutting it down on the first).

I've tried HFS on the old ports (which are still properly forwarded), I've tried assigning it to new ports (which I've verified as being correctly forwarded), and I've tried it on forwarded ports that other programs work on.  I've also tried it with all firewalls shut off completely.  Nothing helps.

Again, the only thing that changed between when HFS was working and when it isn't is that we've moved across town, and have a different ISP.  Every other aspect of my system is identical and unchanged.

router & port problems / Re: HFS stopped working after move

Hi Rejetto. I was not at the IP address of the computer with the problem when I wrote the first post, but at another PC where HFS was (and still is) working.   That's why you were able to "see" my server at that time, but (presumably) cannot now.  I am typing this now on the computer having the problem described in my initial post, and the problem is as before.  This PC, the one I'm typing on now, still fails the self-test.

HFS still works on localhost and on my internal network, but cannot be accessed from outside.  I'm using the same router from before moving, and the port forwards and firewall settings are all the same.  The only thing that's different is my physical address. 

The result is also the same if I shut down HFS and do a clean install of HFS from another computer on my network.  Also if I change the port HFS uses to ports that are currently open and working for other programs:  uTorrent and Soulseek, respectively.  But uTorrent and Soulseek ARE able to run on the ports I opened earlier for Soulseek.

Most mysterious of all:  we also tried running Tonido portable from the second computer to see if we could serve files from it.  But when we called up the Tonido URL from our phone (with HFS turned off), it now feeds us the HFS interface.

What in the world is going on?

router & port problems / Re: HFS stopped working after move

I've done that -- switching the ports (and forwarding) to 8080 and then 9090 -- but the self-test keeps testing -- and failing on -- other ports I haven't specified, including ports 80, 1000, 7000, 8000.  I'm stumped.

router & port problems / HFS stopped working after move

We just moved to a new house across town and setup our computers in exactly the same configuration we had them in at the old place -- same router, same network, different ISP -- and now HFS doesn't work.  In other words, the ports are still forwarded exactly as before, but now HFS fails the self-test.  What am I missing?

Bug reports / Re: lots of vfs temp files
« on: June 02, 2015, 09:25:24 PM »
And weirder still:  following a reboot of my Windows 7 PC (with HFS still running), the EXE and VFS files were gone when the new session started.  Not renamed, not recycled, but gone.

I've noticed too that there are hundreds of entries in the "IPS" file too, even though only myself and my brother ever upload and download to this machine.  Virus and trojan scans turn up clean.  What in the world is happening?

Wow, this is happening to me now too.  Just started recently, and now hundreds of TMP files appear in my HFS program folder every day.  Can't figure out why -- I haven't changed a thing.

router & port problems / New router woes
« on: March 24, 2015, 05:55:02 PM »
I just bought a new ASUS RT-N66U router, forwarded all the right ports and verified that they're open on "CanYouSeeMe.org," but for some reason HFS still can't pass the self test?  Is there something else I should be doing to get this particular router working with HFS?  Nothing else on my system has changed.

Thanks.

HFS ~ HTTP File Server / Possible to send message to user?
« on: January 19, 2015, 12:11:43 AM »
Just wondering if there's any way to, say, click on a user IP address and send that user a message.  And if not, is this a feature that could be added in the future?

RAWR-Designs / Re: How to start Terayon with main panel only?

Never mind, I trial-and-errored my way through it and figured it out.

RAWR-Designs / How to start Terayon with main panel only?
« on: November 30, 2014, 11:21:58 PM »
The first thing I do when I load HFS is click the minus sign below the main banner to hide the entire right column (containing the panels titled "Check for Updates," Folder Options," "Server Traffic," etc.).  How can I make HFS (specifically, the Terayon template) start with those items hidden by default?  I'm sure it's a matter of tweaking some minor snippet of code, but I can't figure it out.  Thanks to anyone who can help me.

HFS ~ HTTP File Server / Internal IP address keeps changing
« on: May 29, 2014, 04:50:39 AM »
Whenever I reboot, the internal IP address for HFS is different.  Sometimes it's 192.168.0.101, sometimes 192.168.0.102, sometimes 192.168.0.104, etc.  And whenever it changes, the self-test fails and HFS obviously doesn't work.  How can I make the internal IP address permanent?  Editing the INI file doesn't seem to help.

Right now it looks like the files must be selected individually.
