I came back from a vacation, and found my EZSrve wasn’t responding at its usual address. Next I tried the reset procedure detailed in pauln’s August 8 post at this URL:
Still no luck. (When I plugged the EZSrve into a known good Ethernet cable, my dhcpd server never saw a request from it.)
Finally, I tried running the EZSrve straight to a switch connected directly to a Windows XP box, hoping that APIPA would somehow provide enough DCHP services. When I did that and ran the SHN utility (v1.78) it wasn’t able to find a device either.
Any ideas on what I should do next?andrewcMemberAugust 30, 2008 at 4:58 pmPost count: 12
Did this message get missed? Any advice on what to do?

It can take a few days for someone from SHN to respond to forum activity. For immediate response email support or call the support number.
The only suggestion I can offer is to reload the image with a TFTP server. During testing of a very early Beta image I ran into a problem which required that approach. What image level are you running?paulnMemberAugust 30, 2008 at 7:21 pmPost count: 408
Sorry for the delay. The forum is checked a couple times a week or so… feel free to always contact us directly for immediate support.

In regards to your module, you say you connected it directly to your XP box – did you use a crossover cable?
Regardless, you shouldn’t need to do that – the hard reset should have worked. I am not sure if there were power surges / storms in your area?
Does the unit power on? What is the status of the blue LED?
Feel free to email me directly if you want faster response time

Before delving too deeply, I decided to put WireShark on it… looks as if the EZServ device was OK, but somehow thought it had an IP address of 10.52.33.130 / gateway 10.52.32.1. I’m not sure why it didn’t go to DHCP after I did the reset procedure.
At any rate, I configured a box to 10.52.33.10, connected, reset the IP address and was on my way. I’m still not sure why I lost the address, but at least now I know how to get it back 🙂paulnMemberSeptember 6, 2008 at 2:34 amPost count: 408
Please let us know if this happens again, and if possible if there was a power outage / shortage at this time.rushMemberDecember 5, 2011 at 9:37 pmPost count: 23
I’ve just experienced the same thing – after running quietly under my desk for several months it stopped responding. I eventually used Wireshark and found that my EZSrve seemed to acquire a 10.52.33.10 address and was ARPing for another particular IP address in the same subnet. I set up my PC to use 10.52.33.30 and was able to connect to 10.52.33.10:80.
I had to use the factory default password and I had no configuration in the device, but it does appear to be alive again.
