    Boom networking issue - connect remotely?

    I have a curious problem with one of my Booms - it cannot see the server. It can see the internet, MySB etc, and the other SBs can see the server, but this one cannot. It has never been able to wirelessly - previously I had it wired.

    If I tell the Boom to connect remotely to my server at my IP (87.x.x.x), it works fine. So if I had a fixed IP, it would be fine! I use dyndns, but AFAIK there is no way to tell the Boom to connect to my server at myserver.dyndns.org

    Any ideas? Obviously connecting directly to the server would be preferred, but not essential. Quite baffled by this, and I am far from new to networking!

    And... fixed

    Stupidly, I only did three factory resets, when it obviously needed the fourth!

    Dyndns can be functionally replicated so you will always know your home IP. Google "dynamic IP notifier" These program run on your PC (just like the Dyndns stub) and email you when your IP changes.

    If you are linux google at google.com/linux
