Gateway says offline but appears to be working

  • Hey guys, got my box up and working just wondering if the gateway monitoring is wrong or something.

    for the first 30 seconds or so after a reboot, it says online like below

    then seems to go offline like below

    I noticed that it says offline and then up top is says, not sure how to make them the same..  any help would be very much appreciated.

    They shouldn't be the same. Your local interface address is .6 and the gateway on the other side of the vpn is .5.
    What makes you think it isn't going down?


  • Thanks Steve.  Only because I can surf the net and when I check my ip,  it comes up with a US address.  Any ideas?

    What do you see in the logs? If the gateway shows as down then it's because the apinger process is reporting it as such. It should give a reason in the logs. There have been people reporting issues with apinger for some time though I've not seen any problems.


  • Steve,

    i will have a look.. i have a feeling it is just reporting it wrong because it appears to be working but I will have a look in the logs..
