Title: Connection Time Out issues
Post by: Lars Hansen on September 15, 2022, 17:21:16
I'm having "The Connection has timed out" issues and cannot acces the site from my internet connection - anyone  else experiencing this? Has the site network settings been updated recently?
Might be a local issue - this  was sent via my mobile connection that works ok.

Same issue here. Hope it will be resolved quickly

Sorry about that.  I have no problem in accessing from Japan.

Maybe there is some problem with the network in Denmark?

Thank you.  I had no access from the U.S. yesterday morning.  Site loads well today.

Still a bit slow here ( but maybe it's my connection) after almost 2 days of time out.

A dedicated kick in the virtual behind of NG obviously helped solve the issue :)

Thanks Eric & Birna
I'd been getting "failed to connect in allotted time" types of issues for several weeks in early September.

Thanks Eric & Birna
I'd been getting "failed to connect in allotted time" types of issues for several weeks in early September.

After a week or so of behaving better, I got a timeout error again just now.
In addition, when I looked at the Shape Echo thread, the image in one of the posts failed to display.
It was only 250Kb.

As a precaution I checked my Internet connection and it seems that wasn't the problem - see below
Is another kick (or some gentler but more deep reaching surgery) needed?

Failing to display images is the early symptom - it will miss the last images to displayed on a page. I see it before the site finally becomes unavailable. Yes, it just happened again after having been better for a few days.

Failure to load nikongear.net/revival at 13:42 UCT. Timeout issue: I've doubled the time that my copy of Firefox allows before issuing the related notice.

Perhaps this is, at least from my end, DNS related. On old trace utility showed two flaws in the attempt at connection when using nikongear.net/revival, using the ip the connection took an entirely different and successful path.

https://162.241.212.49/revival/index.php?action=login worked.

An attempt to use nikongear.net/revival worked at 13:54 UCT. Strange!

If you encounter DNS issues, a trick is to put nikongear.net into your HOSTS file with the IP-address 162.241.212.49 :) that will ensure the browser finds the site immediately without use of DNS.

Add the following line to the HOSTS file

162.241.212.49 nikongear.net

and remember to save the file without any extension.

On Windows systems, the file is found at <systemdrive>\windows\system32\drivers\etc; for other OS, consult manuals or search on the 'net for the information. Some systems use the name in lower case.

Is there an equivalent on non-windows devices Birna?

I'm getting the issues on my main day to day device, an Android tablet (as well as my Win 10 PC)

On most Linux systems, it is /etc/hosts. Not familiar with Apple or Android. However, do a quick 'net search and you'll find the required recipes.
