ReadyNAS says "No IP Address": I can connect to it, but it cannot connect to Internet

ReadyNAS says "No IP Address": I can connect to it, but it cannot connect to Internet

I was having trouble loading Spotty on LMS Web interface due to the outdated standard SSL version on this device.

Following laborious instructions on this Forum I managed to update SSL, and now I can load Spotty, BUT I can't run it - as the ReadyNAS has lost all ability to connect outside the local network.  

I can connect to it locally OK with my PC and run the Admin menu, but t cannot check for updates, cannot run Spotty, can't connect to ReadyCLOUD etc. It says "Cannot Get IP Address", even though it has a local one.

Does anyone gave any idea what's going on? It happened immediately I updated the SSL certificate - could that be the cause?

I'm assuming that I will have to RESET the device, perform a lot of Firmware updates, and live with the old SSL certificate - but Internet access is more important than seeing Spotty on the menu!

Re: ReadyNAS says "No IP Address": I can connect to it, but it cannot connect to Internet

...I should add that I have:

- changed the NIC

- changed the cable

- rebooted my Router

- rebooted the ReadyNAS (several times)

Re: ReadyNAS says "No IP Address": I can connect to it, but it cannot connect to Internet

Have you done any troubleshooting with ssh?

 

Checking the gateway configuration with

route -n | grep 'UG[ \t]' | awk '{print $2}'

the subnet mask with 

ifconfig

 

and the DNS server IPs with 

cat /etc/resolv.conf

 

Then also see if you can ping an external address

ping 8.8.8.8

and resolve an external dns name.

nslookup dns.google.com

OK, this is weird, as they all appear to work:

 

route -n | grep 'UG[ \t]' | awk '{print $2}'

gets me the Router IP

 

ifconfig

 gets me, for the active NIC:

 

Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr e8:fc:af:e6:aa:f8

UP BROADCAST MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1

RX Packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0

Interrupt:19 Memory:fe800000-fe820000

 

cat /etc/resolv.conf

gets me:

# Generated by Connections Manager 

search home

nameserver 192.168.1.1 [the router]

nameserver 8.8.8.8

 

nslookup dns.google.com

 get me 8.8.8.8 and 

8.8.4.4

 

That all seems to be good doesn't it?

IP is not enabled on the NIC.  You should be seeing something like

inet addr:x.x.x.x  Bcast:x.x.x.255  Mask:255.255.255.0

after between the Link encap line and the UP line for ipv4 (and potentially and inet6 addr line for ipv6).

 

Do any of your interfaces have the inet addr line?  (other than local loopback)

Re: ReadyNAS says "No IP Address": I can connect to it, but it cannot connect to Internet

I switched back to the other NIC; now I get this:

A lot of errors.

 

But did you try the other tests with the new NIC? Particularly

ping 8.8.8.8
nslookup dns.google.com

They look OK:

 

--- 8.8.8.8 ping statistics ---
28 packets transmitted, 28 packets received, 0% packet loss
round-trip min/avg/max = 28.250/30.859/37.911 ms

Address 2: 2001:4860:4860::8888 dns.google
Address 3: 8.8.4.4 dns.google
Address 4: 8.8.8.8 dns.google

 

But STILL I get the comms error when the ReadyNAS tries to access the outside world. e.g. BIOS Update Check. Weird.

This may be limited to services that use TLS/SSL.

 

Try 

openssl s_client -connect www.google.com:443

and see what happens.

Re: ReadyNAS says "No IP Address": I can connect to it, but it cannot connect to Internet

Tried that. I get a long result which I have posted here three times, but never sticks - so I think it's too long. 

The highlights are:

 

CONNECTED(00000003)
depth=2 C = US, O = Google Trust Services LLC, CN = GTS Root R1
verify error:num=20:unable to get local issuer certificate
verify return:0

2 s:/C=US/O=Google Trust Services LLC/CN=GTS Root R1
i:/C=BE/O=GlobalSign nv-sa/OU=Root CA/CN=GlobalSign Root CA

 

Then certificate details; then:

And finally:

So it looks like in trying to update SSL I have screwed it up.  But how do I get a working certificate if I can't connect to anything?!

 

Thanks for all your help by the way...

There is an automatic spam filter, and it looks like it caught your earlier posts for some reason.  Mods review it when they have time, so you might see them released in a while.

No idea how to fix it.  You could try an OS reinstall and see if that works.  It'd be prudent to make a backup of your data, in case you lose all access.

 

Another thought - if you have a spare disk (not in the array), then you could do a factory install with only the spare in place.

 

Then copy the OS partition to an external drive.  That might help you identify the files that you modified, and get back stock files that work.

Re: ReadyNAS says "No IP Address": I can connect to it, but it cannot connect to Internet

Well, I was preparing myself for an inevitable OS reinstall if this wen on; it worked fine.

 

But now I have the same slightly broken LMS installation as before due to an outdated SSL version. However, that is preferable to no Internet access. 

 

Thanks for your help...
