Re: Usasge meter no longer working

Mine is the simple script published in this forum, with a GUI attached. The XML feed is no longer accepting connections.

Re: Usasge meter no longer working

My script doesn't either James. The XML data URL https://www.exetel.com.au/members/usage ... R,PASSWORD returns "error=Incorrect User/Pass"

A direct terminal connection to the server, with the certificate unchecked, produces the same message.

Re: Speed??

Your Mint box has a better set of tools than W10. netstat will return a huge amount of info if used with the -a argument. Try netstat -tuw instead.
Similarly traceroute has more options than tracert.

Re: SMTP server settings keep changing

The relay message often is sent to mobiles. I asked "where" because the SMTP server will only accept (ie, authenticate) a plain connection from an Exetel account IP address. Since neither applies you'll have to look at the Apple config. Check out "Edit SMTP Server List" (outgoing server), for port 2...

Re: Routesto Singapore

Do you have any trace weapons better than Windows? The hops Optus->Singapore are asymmetric.

Re: SMTP server settings keep changing

Relay not permitted is the clue. Apart from that the messages are coming from your device. Are you using a mobile? Where is the computer? Port 25 is correct, no authentication (the SMTP server checks your IP - it accepts Exetel).

Re: Difficulties with sending emails

It isn't strange. It goes back to a proposed standard in 1998 to provide for port 587 also.

Re: No incoming calls

If you use a separate ATA, or softphone, I suspect you have not port forwarded to the ATA or softphone IP address. The modem router firewall will drop the incoming phone signal, seeing it as an intrusion attempt if this is not done. The router inward log will list these drops if this is the case. Co...

Re: Bill shock warning - mobile not dropping call

I've noticed this also, using a "dumb" phone. Ringing to PSTN or VoIP, the caller has to press the hang up button.

Re: Strange email behaviour

If you wish to give the terminal a try to confirm everything works the old-fashioned way, it's pretty simple, like this (you type the italicised): $ telnet pop3.nsw.exemail.com.au 110 Trying 220.233.0.76... Connected to chestnut2-mail.exetel.com.au. Escape character is '^]'. +OK Dovecot ready. (Here...

Re: Strange email behaviour

POP email servers have a very simple interface, that accepts a small number of commands in plain text. There's a list at http://www.nthelp.com/pop_commands.htm. Your computer mail client, no matter how the GUI display is constructed, sends these requests. Normally sent are user name, password, a lis...

Re: VOIP Hacked?

They need your login details for the SIP registrar server. These are sent by your equipment or softphone when it registers, so wireless can be eavesdropped. Mobile devices can be mislaid. Softphones give up their information if the computer is compromised. Call back and call forwarding features can ...

Re: The Exetel 6-year club

The NBN FTTN service requires VDSL2 modems that meet their specification. The few brands and models that do are registered by NBN, including the Exetel supplied Netcomm. You can see a list, with a caution about changed settings, at http://whirlpool.net.au/wiki/fttn_regis ... dem_router.
