Re: Charter Internet Line Monitoring - It's free

said by EarlyCuyler:

Thank you!

One question, I put in the DNS server as 24.196.64.53 to start monitoring. Is this the correct setting for Charter?

should be whatever your ip is

I thought my IP changed with Charter?

Dyn.com wants to make me sign up for a free trial to set up my service there. Is there any way around this? Sorry, still new at all of this.

I think I got it figured out. I signed up for a No-IP account and it seems to be resolving, just don't have any data yet. Thanks for the help.

I get a weekly report but it never has any relevant information on it. Is it possible to check my email address (xxxxxx@charter.net) and see it that's a report different from what is offered here. I signed up for it on this website.

Have you checked your graphs here? »/testhistory?view=31

Unfortunately, we have no way to check your email address.

Speaking of your email address, for privacy and anti-spam purposes, I edited out of your post.

Hi skj, I just came back to this thread and saw your reply. I checked the testhistory graphs, but after alphabetizing the Palo Alto, Ca choice, and the NY choice, couldn't find anything under my user name.

The report I receive periodically always has this statement:

********** EMPTY REPORT *********
You selected dynamic IP, but we are not receiving
IP updates for it yet.
===================================

Any clues from this?

John

Since you indicated you have a dynamic IP, if your IP address has changed than the monitor will not be able to receive any data. You would have to enter in your new IP address.

should be whatever your ip is

The DNS setting is our current IP address? Will it affect anything if I left that portion blank?

Re: Charter Internet Line Monitoring - It's free

Do you support RFC 2136 for Dynamic IP?

No, unfortunately we don't. We use standard http based services like dyndns.

That, I don't know.
You could experiment based off this FAQ entry: »Line Monitoring FAQ »Configuration of all dynamic DNS clients . Be sure to tell us if it works.

Hi,

will this tell me how much bandwidth i use a month?

cos charter still can't do that... all they can tell me is "contact our security team".. you would think it would kill them to spend a few bucks to have some geek code them a b/w monitor for their customers

I've got line monitoring running on my HSI now. I have a DHCP residential connection. I tried to set up OpenDNS Updater to keep my monitor updated like it does for OpenDNS which I use. How does one do this? I don't know where to begin with Updater.

I don't use OpenDNS Updater nor am I familiar with it but does this help you at all:

»www.opendns.com/support/dynamic_ip/

Also you can do line monitoring without using it. You just have to remember to update your public IP address on your line monitor when it changes.

You just need to add your public IP address to the "Monitor this STATIC IP" and check the "Dynamic IP" box. You need to do both. Then click on update at the bottom of the page.
