All good! Now have it working – it was only on close inspection that the number for registration had a slight typo in it – seems this is what the fritzbox uses for rego, not the section for Account Information/Username. Or at least at one stage of the login anyway.

Now it’s working perfectly, thanks!!

Nigel.

Comment on TPG FTTB Settings by Nigel https://rants.vastheman.com/2018/01/24/settings/#comment-18516 Mon, 27 May 2019 21:19:39 +0000 https://rants.vastheman.com/?p=306#comment-18516 Hi Vas,

Thanks for the reply and apologies for my delayed one – been out of the country.

Yep, I’ve set the VLAN correctly for the service and extracted the phone password from the dodgy TPLink modem they provided with the service after gaining root access.

On the FritzBox settings, one thing was the phone area code, I have two boxes, first one is ‘0’ & I set the second to ‘2’.

I’ll fire up the TPLink one a little later and have a check over the settings to see if I missed anything or if there’s a slight difference to yours (I don’t think there will be though).

Will let you know how I go, cheers!

Nigel.

I’m still using my TPG phone service with these settings. If you’re getting a “No route to destination” error, it sounds like your VLAN settings might not be correct. Have you correctly set the VLAN for the phone service? The phone service is on VLAN 6 while the Internet service is on VLAN 2.

Also, the phone password is not the same as your account password – it’s generated and controlled by TPG. I’ve been completely unable to get TPG support to supply me with the password. I obtained it by performing a man-in-the-middle attack on the communication between the supplied Huawei modem/router and TPG’s configuration server. The process is fairly involved.

Vas

Thanks for the settings, they’ve been invaluable!

Wondering if the phone settings are still current? I applied them and when I make a call on the FritzFon I receive the message “No route to destination”, any ideas?

Cheers!

It’s likely similar to the other Nihon System games on the same platform like Free Kick and Gigas. You might be able to get a better answer on a forum like this one.

Comment on Make a real argument by Wellllll https://rants.vastheman.com/2014/09/22/argument/#comment-790 Thu, 17 Dec 2015 05:27:47 +0000 http://rants.vastheman.com/?p=246#comment-790 I agree with you here. That is a really stupid argument. I wouldn’t do my job if I wasn’t paid to do it.

This is actually one of the reasons I think MAME is such a good program. It’s a labor of love. People aren’t doing it for money. Nothing done for money could be as awesome as MAME.
