Dear Freedombox team!
My Pioneer FreedomBox Home Server has been running since 2018, on an
freedombox-testing-free_latest_a20-olinuxino-lime2-armhf.img . It is plugged into my home router, whose DHCP server is configured to only give out IPv4 addresses. I see the green light next to the network plug at the router, and blinking yellow and green lights next to the plug at the freedombox. I also checked the cable with a different device.
Three days ago the freedombox stopped being reachable via Pagekite and local IPv4 address. I used to see it (and its IPv4 address) in the client list of the router’s web interface, but it is now missing there. When I log in locally via HDMI monitor and USB keyboard, I see with “
ip a” that the
eth0 device has now only got a link-local IPv6 address (starting with
Restarting the router (to be sure), then the freedombox (and waiting for 10 minutes after each start) did not change the situation. What can I do?
My plan would now be to install a fresh image on another SD card and restore my last backup there, but I’d be happy if I could avoid this effort.
(This might be similar to the open question My router gave freedombox a DHCPv6 lease; I need a DHCPv4 lease. @rjfbx1 mentions “Foris” and “Luci” there - I don’t know what that is.)
Best regards, Robert
