Cant download, seems the (selfsigned) ssl cert has expired at Baicells!!


#3

Thanks for pointing this out. The SSL cert has been renewed with automatic recurring.


#4

Can you guys fix the iperf bug? Would be nice if UL and DL worked on Atom R9 units.


#5

It is not a bug with iperf or the CPE. The issue is related to iperf2 not supporting NAT. There are discussions on implementing iperf3 which can support NAT by using reverse mode (-R).


#6

Is there or could there be in the future a better way to check the model for compatibility? Perhaps from the OMC?

As we deploy more and more of these units the less feasible it becomes to check each individual CPE for its model type.

Thank you.


#7

Yes, we will display the model name as a field in CPE monitor in the next OMC update.


#8

If we’re running LGW-routed mode, should iPerf work? We’ve never gotten iPerf to work on any CPE in any configuration.


#9

Jim, Get with support at support_na@baicells.com. Sonny should have iPerf directions. I believe we are using iPerf 2 or 3.
