connection to Netgate Forum was lost,



  • Been getting frequent disconnects for about a week..

    "Looks like your connection to Netgate Forum was lost, please wait while we try to reconnect."

    I have to sign in twice sometimes..

    Using Firefox.. Ill try Chrome and update later.

    About that time.. Im VPN'd into my network now using my laptop with Chrome and it has not happened yet during this session.

    I am firefox user, both at work and home - I have not seen any issues this week that I recall.. And I am on pretty much all day ;) heheh



  • My Firefox install is years old and updated to the latest release.. Im wondering if I have modified a setting over the years that is borking things up.. No other sites have issues though.. Ill go over and browse around the vyatta forum when I get home and see if I get the same results.. They use the same software.

    So far this session with Chrome is good.

    Firefox 66 just came out the other day, that is what I am running.



  • I saw that once on Monday and not since. In the past, I've seen wonky forum issues caused by IP6 problems.

    Before the update I would now and then see issues, accessing flagged posts in the mod area would on demand cause a disconnect popup, etc.

    Have not seen since - but for sure if do will post in the thread running in the mod/admin section.

    My main machines pretty much always have IPv6 disabled, so that would not be cause of any issues I use to see. And work doesn't have it all, etc.

    What is odd if you were not seeing them before, and now after the update you are - and people that use to see them are no longer having the issue..



  • I too would see the "Looks like your connection to Netgate Forum was lost, please wait while we try to reconnect." message, but only if I let the browser window fall to the background (while doing something else). As soon as I came back to the forum, the message would stay briefly, and then disappear! (I would never have to log in again though) Was using Firefox/Windows 7, but since switching to Linux Mint 19.1/Firefox, have not seen the message.
