Also, Birna, die Lungenentzündung hätte nun echt nicht sein müssen

I had an incident of pneumonia that lasted more than 3 weeks before I recovered. Lots of antibiotics were administered. I haven't been this wretched for years :(

Birna I hope you will be well soon.
I have trouble with Nikongear on my iPad, as it sometimes end on the old IP address.
Problem come and go, right now I reset all my network settings, and I am on, but will it last, others with the same problem?
Even using the new IP address don’t work ???

Bent, had similar issue on my iphone and windows laptop, where the site would revert to maintenance mode, as of today no issues yet.

Yesterday I was viewing a log-in for administrators and this morning, after a few seconds, the site is up again (with a padlock :-) ). Mac and Safari.

It's all a question of cached DNS information. Some networks do renew immediately (in a matter of hours) thus I could access NG on my Android units in Oslo the very first day, but not at home on the home network (different ISPs). Today, the home network also works with the Android units. For the PCs I just set up the correct HOSTS entry if necessary.

Using the IP address directly will not work as the certificate is for the domain nikongear.net only.

FYI: The "old" NG site, at IP 162.210.51.81 will go off air in a week's time. The server will be shut down permanently on 31 Dec 2019 at the latest.  After that we are forever cloud-based :)

I haven't tested e-mail notification from PM yet. Anyone care to shoot me a test PM?

Hm. The internal messaging of NG does work, but notification by email might be stuck. Oh well, I'll look into this later. It's just a minor annoyance.

Thanks anyway, Akira et al. No need to PM me further -- for now.

This site will show an indication of how the new IP is propagated world wide:

https://www.whatsmydns.net/#A/nikongear.net

Most countries should be on the "right track, while some areas still cling to the old address. This simply takes time to flush out.

I've gone back and forth between being able to access the site and not over the last few days. This is at home PC only, not via phone.  Clearing the cache and cookies doesn't seem to help.  I guess I'll just have to be patient.

Bill: You could put the following line into your HOSTS file

Code: [Select]
162.241.212.49    nikongear.net
Then, you avoid the vacillating scenario.

The old site is now set in permanent maintenance mode and can no longer be accessed. A notice of the new NG IP address is posted there.

Nikongear has been in maintenance mode the greater part of the day the recommended steps for solving the issue were to no avail, thinks the dns service was not up and running yet. ;)

It worked on my mobile.  For my PC's I had to adapt the host file, and that works now   :D   Also with the help of the Whats-app group :)
