iPerf (and iPerfSpeed)

I searched and didn't see anything regarding what I'm about to ask. Also, I'm really not sure if this should be posted here or to Deployment. I think here is probably more appropriate, anyway...

I've just updated a couple of my nodes to the latest firmware and in the process added iPerf and iPerfSpeed. When I ran iPerfSpeed between these two nodes in either direction, I get a "connection Refused" message. This is the first time I've run into this from lots of installs of iPerf and iPerfSpeed on dozens of nodes in our network.

Seems like maybe some kind of permissions or firewall issue but, as I said, I could find no reference on the AREDN site about this so I could resolve it. Thanks.

The node might need rebooted.

The node might need rebooted.    A new firewall rule had to be added.    If the package install didn't restart the firewall (or reboot he node), it still needs done.

As usual, I overlook the simple explanation (is it plugged in?). I'll look tomorrow, thanks.

​iPerf further testing

​The problem now appears to only be associated with one of my AirRouters. The AirRouter which faulted when I did the firmware update, and which I had to do a reset to get it back running, is the one that is refusing the connection. iPerf is working fine on the rest of my nodes (5 total that work).

I'm not a linux guru but can get around the command line interface so the easiest thing for me to try would be to restore the AirRouter to AirOS and start all over again. Of course if someone has steps I can take to fix this issue it would be appreciated. I assume its a firewall mis-configuration, not sure.

upload the support download

upload the support download data.  This will confirm if the firewall port is or is not opened correctly and respective config detals.

where to attach???

I don't see anywhere in the reply compose window to attach a file. Only at the bottom where it says "Support File Attachments" which is where I uploaded on the 21st.

I'll try again. File name is: supportdata-W7REJ-Base02-201710231314.tgz. After I hit "Upload" I get no indication that the upload took place. It just goes back to "No file chosen". So I had to do it a second time, then it showed me the file name. Must be some kind of Drupal bug.
