Re: LAN IPs blocked on LAN?

Sorry - missed the switch note (at 1:03 I must have nodded off :oops: ) If it works when not connected to the software based router / switch it must be something in pfsense that's blocking access (or am I missing something)? I concur with @Andyroo. Since it works when you remove pfsense from the pi...

Re: LAN IPs blocked on LAN?

Have you checked the system log for any hints there? What is the indicator that it fails on the LAN? Can you ping or ssh the Pi from a system on your LAN? And, for completeness, probably not the issue but have you verified that all the IP addresses (router port forwarding and actual IP address on th...

Re: Need to unplug&replug USB keyboard on startup (pi4)

I use a Lenovo USB keyboard with a trackpoint on it. I have not seen the problem you are describing on my Pi4.

Re: port forwarding doesn't work

Two things to check: 1) is the xrdp service running on your pi? Verify via ‘netstat -ltpn’ on your pi and look for a line with 3389 on it. 2) make sure that the IP address you’re forwarding to is actually the address of the pi.

Re: port forwarding doesn't work

I’m a bit confused. You seem to indicate that you are able to access your Pi with ssh from outside your network, thereby indicating that port forwarding DOES work. Is that what you meant? If that’s correct, then you’re having trouble forwarding port 3389 for RDP. Perhaps you could provide a screen s...

Re: Changing Desktop Environment

Agree with @bjtheone that if you're interested in trying different desktop environments, starting with Raspbian Lite is probably a better approach. There's a lot less "stuff" to disentangle as you try different environments. I use xdm with icewm, and install it with the following script, which also ...

Re: Clock?

I generally don't worry about it. When it breaks things that have been working for 5+ years, you have to worry about it. Agree. I wasn't trying to make light of the issue, just my position on it for my use case. Your workaround of checking that the remote time servers are available seems reasonable.

For a network with 20+ devices, you should have a bit of management tool help! It will eliminate SO many problems, like the kind you're having now.

Re: Poor onboard gigabit ethernet performance with Raspberry Pi 4 B

At quick glance it looks like you're having network problems. A whole interval with no data transferred? I'd be looking for clues such as event logs, and maybe sniffing the network to see why it's so (apparently) hosed.

Are you running Raspbian Lite or Full? In chasing down a WiFi issue I observed that on Raspbian Full lxpanel did a WiFi scan once a minute.

I don't normally run Full, so if this is your issue, I can't offer a method for disabling it.
