Failed to connect to server
Posted by mishab on 02/07/2010 03:47 PM

My Elk RP is failing to connect. I get the "Failed to connect to server" error. The M1XEP setup finds the network module without issues. System Type: M1G Hardware Version:0.11 Boot version:3.3.2 Firmware: 4.5.24 Any idea what is happening here?

I got the same after upgrading the firmware per the instructions (boot firmware first, 8 minute wait). The upgrade seemed to go OK but can't connect with RP or RM. If I point a web browser to the page I get the java window and then a can't connect message. If I ftp in it connects but I get a username prompt which won't accept any of the stored usernames. It accepts none, but then I can't get it to accept any of the passwords.

If the M1XEP is set to DHCP Mode and is not assigned an IP Address by the router the M1XEP will default to After an update the M1XEP will need approximately 8 minutes to reboot but once the reboot is complete you should be able to Find, highlight the IP Address, click Use Selected and then try your connection. If not please try the following:
Power down the M1XEP and back up while connected to the LAN
Wait for the M1XEP to reboot indicated by the Green LED flickering with data traffic on the LAN then Find , Use Selected and Connect
If not able to connect refer to page 25 of the M1XEP Installation Manual under "Forcing the DHCP/IP Address Setting to Known Values" and use the JP2 jumper to set the M1XEP into DHCP Mode.
When the Green LED is blinking 1 blink per second remove the JP2 jumper and let the M1XEP Reboot.
Once the Reboot is complete "Find" the M1XEP, highlight the IP Address and click Use Selected, click the TCP/IP Setting Tab and click Copy.
Next click Connection icon and Network

I'm having the same problem with my system after the firmware upgrade on the M1 and the XEP. Has anyone found a definite fix for this, do I need to reset something?

I've noticed that after updating the XEP to version 1.3.x, you may have to wait more than the suggested eight minutes. You may have to wait up to 20 or even 30 minutes for it to reboot. Any time I've done that, the XEP works fine afterwards.

I waited a good 45 minutes with no joy. ElkRP2 could find the control, but could not connect. I have a static IP assigned. I had to power off/on the M1XEP and wait 5-10 minutes after it booted to be able to connect.
