If you are asking for support for an issue, please include the following information at the top of your post:
I have had a freedombox since March 2023. My Freedombox is plugged into my router. No static IP address. Set up worked fine- eventually… Now, I cannot get to FB from my browser. Message is “having problems connecting…” The FB is online and I tested connectivity via the ping “method”. I am just now training myself on the basics of networks (I use a Mac OS computer) which presented difficulties initially and learning about terminal commands (in Mac OS). So … eventually I want to switch to the GNU/Linux OS for security and privacy reasons and prior to that use FB to set up a VPN … ( I now use Proton VPN). I have been hopeful about the FB community and its goals but …
So, I have 3 questions:
What s going on and what can I do?
Is there anybody else out there who is lost in all of the technical issues that get raised ?
Is there a Forum section on FB for “dummies”? I only “dummies” mean this in the sense that one is like me is not yet trained but smart enough & wants to learn?
Finally, I mean no disrespect to the very impressive comments made by members of this community.
- Whether your FreedomBox is plugged into a router at home or not (if not, please specify how it is connected to the internet)
- The month and year you bought your kit (feel free to omit if you want to preserve some privacy, but this could be helpful information)
- The version of FreedomBox your are running (available by clicking on the “?” in the top menu → “About”)
