john thank you,

 

 

 

So just taking a look now... these are firewall / port forwarding requirements needed in order to get the sureSignal 'back on track' yes? I've just been under the house a bit recently, and have gotten a bunch of nice clean new ethernet cables all hooking everything up, seems to work well, and have cycled the router/dv130/suresignal 'on/off' a few times but definitely the Voda sureSignal needs additional help to get working again, as I type, I have zero bars reception, middle of Takapuna, zero bars. The instructions, referred to, I know are likely very clear, succinct etc, but would there be an interpretation, more sort of in layman terms, so I don't spend all night getting it working?

 

Right now, a very simple setup, as the guy should be bringing us a VDSL connection this week, telephone ADSL----> DV130 -----> AEBS ----> Vodafone sureSignal (not working)

Oh God help me,

 

A fantastic young guy called Russell popped round this morning, VDSL enabled, we have 70/14mb, Harlan had an issue w/getting the DV 130 going perfect but a call to SnapperNet & a very capable gentleman Mark had the latest firmware & a config file to bridge to an AEBS loaded and it goes mint.

 

Again, still, its Vodafone, everyone tells me the setup is sweet and since all my gates and cams & everything is A1 only the Vodafone SureSignal is FAIL.

 

On the phone, yet again to Vodafone Support, Technical Support.... I am asking for a Tier II Support Providing Unit, I am speaking with Kain... nicely spoken he is too, but asking me to get a paper-clip, WTF, a 'paper-clip', what for?

 

Telling him my AEBS etc don't need zero'ing, he's told me to use a paper-clip to access the Askey 9361's reset button, WTF, its got a massive black knob to press, Kain has never seen or used or helped anyone w/a Vodafone SureSignal...

 

Tell Kain to go ask a Tech, Team Leader Sneh is the man he gets, apparently the SureSignal will only work on a Huawei branded modem, router. Period.

 

Blood pressure rising...

 

I say, NO, again directing to:

 

http://help.vodafone.co.nz/app/answers/detail/a_id/12608/~/setting-up-more-complex-networks-with-sure-signal

 

Now I have a Technical Guru, Tito... he is reading this now.... Tito doesn't understand Johns instructions, he's going to hang up, call John 'the most technically minded person I know' & call me back. It's 1758.

Just waiting, for Tito to finish up his discussion with John..

 

 

 

Honestly, is this stuff relevant or not, everything else works, from the IP Cams to the front gate, just not the 'sure'Signal?

 

http://help.vodafone.co.nz/app/answers/detail/a_id/12608/~/setting-up-more-complex-networks-with-sure-signal

 

 

 

Setting up more complex networks with Sure Signal

 

This article describes the connectivity required between the Vodafone Sure Signal and the Vodafone network.

 

IP address
The Vodafone Sure Signal requires a DHCP assigned IP address. This may be a private IP address but if so will need to go through a proxy or NAT function so that it is routeable to over the Internet, i.e. seen by the Vodafone network as a public IP address. This is normal for a standard DSL connection but may need to be ensured in Enterprise or more complicated Consumer IP setups.

 

VPN Configuration
All traffic between the Vodafone Sure Signal and the Vodafone network, with the exception of the DNS and synchronisation traffic described below, is carried within a VPN tunnel. The VPN is established by the Vodafone Sure Signal on initial setup and is successfully created if the @ LED on the Vodafone Sure Signal housing is lit – the LED flashes during VPN setup.

 

The following firewall rules will be required as a minimum to allow the VPN to be established between the Vodafone Sure Signal and the Vodafone network. These rules assume a stateful firewall, otherwise connections will be required in both directions. Some standard DSL routers may need changes to built in firewalls. Enterprise or more complicated Consumer IP setups may need wider changes which will depend on their environment and is not within the scope of Vodafone support.

Description

 

Vodafone Sure Signal 124.6.205.17
124.6.205.18
124.6.205.19
124.6.205.41
124.6.205.42
124.6.205.42 IP 50 ESP UDP 4500 IPSEC NAT Traversal UDP 500 ISAKMP

 

Domain Name Resolution

 

In order to setup the VPN the Vodafone Sure Signal requires the ability to resolve IP addresses for hosts in the initial-ipsecrouter.vag.vodafone.co.nz domain.

 

These are specified on the Vodafone Public DNS servers. The DNS server used by the Vodafone Sure Signal must be DHCP assigned. Standard DSL connectivity includes DHCP assignment of DNS server.

 

Synchronisation

 

In order to function the Vodafone Sure Signal requires a synchronisation signal from the Vodafone network. This is carried outside the VPN tunnel and the following firewall rules will be required. These rules assume a stateful firewall, otherwise connections will be required in both directions. Some standard DSL routers may need changes to built in firewalls. Enterprise or more complicated Consumer IP setups may need wider changes which will depend on their environment and is not within the scope of Vodafone support.

 

etc etc etc etc ......Vodafone Sure Signal 124.6.205.25 UDP 123 NTP - for synchronisation 124.6.205.26 UDP 123 NTP - for synchronisation.'

C'mon please guys, the position I need to be in, means that I have to have the house open, with an extension cord going up the front yard, across the fence, onto the road, I look like a dick, sitting next to my cell phone, with my 1 bar, using my neighbours internet to post, waiting for your call back. 

 

I begged Tito, to not hang up !!! Why did I listen, again... god I am the stupid one.

 

Getting eaten by mozzies too, eaten.

This is a tad belated but the intention is the same, my issue was solved by johnr, who took some of his valuable off-duty time, his most valuable commodity & used it to educate / encourage us to try something else, which worked.

 

We'd spent many hours, getting nowhere & it just shows as usual, quality counts - johnr from Vodafone was the only person who actually knew his stuff, he made perfect sense & so provided a solution.

 

It's been said plenty, will be said again but we want to say now 'thank you johnr'
