My IP not updated

Postby Timonier » Tue Jan 17, 2017 7:49 am

Hello Peter,
Using version 1.1.3. Yesterday I've restarted my box so my IP was changed.
When I've opened JoinFS I've seen in the case "My IP" my old IP address. So could you kindly check if the same occurs on your side and if no what I'm doing wrong ?
Thanks in advance for your further advice.

Best Regards
Marc

Hi Marc,

The way it works is that JoinFS caches and stores the IP address and won't attempt to get the latest IP address until the hour of the day changes. So basically if you wait an hour or two and run JoinFS again it should show the updated IP address.

The reason I did this is because the servers that it uses to get the IP address aren't supposed to have too many repeated requests.

It's not actually a problem per se, because JoinFS doesn't use the address itself. If you let people know your new address and they connect to that then everything will work as normal. The address shown is just for your information.
