Re: cant send email?!

Are you using Outlook? This problem is showing up lately. Outlook on your machine is breaking the email standards by not sending the target address before the message.

There are many references online to fixes, eg https://recoverit.wondershare.com/email ... -rcpt.html

Re: Cannot send emails

Thanks for the follow-up. Can you make sure he has cleaned his Windows of any malware and knows how to keep it secure. Most spam is sent by innocents who have been got at in some way and are controlled remotely without knowing it is happening. It likely wasn't Outlook doing it, but another hidden ma...

Re: NF18ACV connection drop

The PPP fault is fundamental - if down, you have lost the Exetel connection. The back end is being looked at by nilushid. About your question concerning the router log. This is a secondary affair. The syslog error quoted comes from the Linux OS which runs the router, to do with obtaining your IPv6 a...

Re: Cannot send emails

Well that's found a blockage. I can't help further, but hopefully the email staff/postmaster can look at it now. Graphic/GUI email clients usually have a setting to show this conversation, and the replies, as it is what they have to do underneath in the background It is mostly not shown by default.

Re: Cannot send emails

I'm back again. Let's troubleshoot the email account from your end first. In times lost in history, before GUIs and Windows we had to send emails using the protocol typed in a terminal. To test the account at the server by sending an email, and checking all of the return codes, start telnet as follo...

Re: Mail server hack faked. I belive

This little piece of nastiness is one of the most common frauds going around at the moment. The email headers are usually spoofed and there is no evidence to show a mail server has been hacked. Windows malware may allegedly be planted on the recipient's computer. Machines without cameras (!), and ot...

Re: Intermittent NBN in Bondi Beach - so what's new

I'll leave it to staff to look into the details of the trouble, but there is a significant difference between here and Chicago - there it was a large company that ran the system. Here it is a large government instrumentality, the NBN, who runs the distribution.

Re: NetComm NF18ACV Dec 2018 Firmware

Most of these devices have a Linux OS stored and arranged that way. It is copied across at boot, so this method is a good idea for all types.

Re: Is there a currently working usage meter?

Speaking as the author of at least one of the meters.... The old facility depended on logging into an XML data page read by sending the name/password pair in the URL as a GET request. Exetel considered this as insufficiently secure and discontinued the service. It could be revived in a secure manner...

Re: Exetel new VoIP Platform

This question has been asked a couple of times now, with no reply as yet.

The holiday season means an increase in travelling, and users are concerned about the security of VoIP registration. Have the changes affected this?

Re: Voip registration from OS IP address

It is a serious problem to watch for. I know of a case where a traveller was caught out after 3 days staying at different hotels in Japan using a wireless tablet. The account was hijacked and in a couple of days ran up a huge number of mobile phone calls to and from different Middle-Eastern numbers ...

Re: Voip registration from OS IP address

If you do arrange for the account to be enabled from abroad, check your usage frequently. There is an industry stealing VOIP login credentials for illicit use from some other countries, and you could run up a large bill unknowingly.
