Re: Line Monitoring SignUps for CenturyLink members

Is the monitor supposed to be working? I have a flat line. Just wondering, is it me or is the monitor not yet restored?

Check to make sure you are using your current public IP address.

Yes I am. I haven't changed anything since the outage. Yesterday the graph page reappeared showing a flat blue line. I made sure the DynDNS was running. Late last night, just before midnight I got a brief green blip on the graph but then it went back to the blue line.

Your graph looks like your IP address has changed. Try this:

Stop your current monitor and then set up a new monitor.

Set up new monitor. Dynamic IP. How long does it take to get results?

I'm thinking you don't have your monitor set up correctly because I don't see an IP address associated with your monitor:

»/testhistory?v···rt=m&p=2

A very important factor is the way you setup the account. Even if you have a static IP, you must create the account as a dynamic IP. You have to check the dynamic box AND enter your static IP. For security and privacy, BBR uses a cookie feature so that if you are logged in, only you can see your static IP graph. But for those that are not logged in, the graph is not visible, it will appear broken. So setting the graph to a dynamic IP will allow everyone to see the graph while the IP will remain hidden. If you have a static IP you do not need to run a DDNS client. Just set the monitor for "dynamic" and then type in your IP address in the "monitor this static address" box
