    So back to the original question: how do you search in the forums?
    I enter terms which are guaranteed to be mentioned, like ‘voip’, ‘eth00’, ‘vpn’ and always get No Results.
    Appreciating this is very hard indeed.

    I did migrate from one hardware configuration to another in the past. My systems were initially Dell P4 Celeron machine with an Intel WAN NIC and 2x 3Com LAN LAN NICs. Then I went to an AMD Duron system with an on-board Realtek WAN and the same 3Com LAN NICs. And from there I migrated to an HP Atom micro-ATX PC with an Intel LAN NIC and onboard Realtec WAN.

    Every time I backed up and restored the configuration. I did have to re-assign interfaces and that was it.

    Hi,

    I remind myself because we still couldn’t solve the issue. Does anyone has any idea to make it work?

    I will be grateful for any type of help

    Can you post screenshots of your set up (with sensitive info erased) here, this may garner more attention. When I ran net balancer with 2x PPPOE over DSL, I just added both interfaces to the balancer and it worked out of the box, so not sure what you are doing different w/o seeing it.

    So you contend that squid et al take more than 4GB per process each? I would question that assertion.

    What’s the advantage of the 64 bit kernel, when the entire ZS takes no more than 256MB of RAM at runtime?

    Looks like setting the job onto 1h schedule fixed the issue.

    Thanks a lot, iulyb!

    I initially set the cron entry for once every 24 hours, but looks like that is not frequent enough, as PAP2T still loses registration once about every week.

    For now I set the interval to 1 hour, as running the command manually through the Test button does fix the issue.

    The old versions of ZS did not have this issue for sure.

    Ah, so that is why PAP2T did not need any port forwarding!
    Fascinating.
    On the contrary, Grandstream HT702 simply refused to work if I did not forward all ports it requried. And the funnyest part was that when I repaired PAP2T and put it back in service, ports 5060 and 5061 were still being forwarded to the HT702’s IP, but PAP2T still worked on a different IP with those same ports. This device just seems to work no matter what.
    Of course now I removed all port forwarding entries for VOIP from NAT, like it used to be back when I was using PAP2T.

    How did your PAP die? It may be repairable. Mine went into a cyclic reboot after I shut it down for half an hour to test HT702. Ended up re-soldering one of the power transistors and ceramic capacitors on the phone lines side after finding with a oscope that there was no PWM on its inductor. It works fine again.

    Got it, thanks!

    Just wondering why this problem became more frequent with the recent version of ZS. I was only having it every 3-6 months when I was on v.1 and v.2, but now on 3.5 it became a weekly thing. My LAN’s internet traffic did increase, and hardware changed from P4 Celeron to Atom. I also gotten rid of the load balanced 2nd DSL line and only have one now, otherwise this is the same profile as 10 years ago.

    No need for a script. An entry on crontab will suffice. Also an entry on scritps/cron should be enough.

    Is there web UI for crontab editing?
    I see in the main page there is Scripts/Cron entry, it loads up a window where Cron is only mentioned as Crontab Shiboleth and it talks about scheduled updates. Is that where I add the command above to flush conntrack?

    Got it, thanks again!

    I prefer setting up something automatic, as no one but myself has access to the router UI and for now users just go to the PAP2T web UI and flip port numbers. I don’t want to give them any access to the router.

    For the record, I always had Realtek NICs and the virtual Pro 1000 still worked.

    If I understand you correctly, you are probably suggesting restarting conntrack instead of playing with VOIP adapter ports?

    Or are you having a script restart it on a regular basis?

    I must have not explained myself clearly.
    The load balancer is set up like this:

    When I try to disable it completely by un-checking Status at the top, I lose the connection.
    I had thought that net balancer could be disabled completely, so the default GW should be elsewhere I guess. Where do I enter the default GW and what IP would go in there?
    I had a single connection so long ago, that I simply can’t remember how it was set up back then. Like more than 10 years ago.
