Hi team,

I have a RUT955 running RUT9_R_00.07.02. It won't accept configuration updates and has lost mobile data connection a couple of times requiring a hard power reset.

I connected via WinSCP and attempted to load in a periodic reset config as a first attempt. The modem reported: scp: /etc/config/periodic_reboot: No space left on device

I tried to remove one of the profile files, as suggested on another post: rm: can't remove 'default.md5': No space left on device

Based on the output of the df command, there should be sufficient amount of available memory.

The interesting thing, or rather worrying, in your troubleshoot file is the extensive list of blocked IP addresses in /etc/config/ip_blockd file, which indicates numerous attempts to login to your device vis SSH WAN port. 

A suggestion now would be to reset the device to factory defaults, to check if it becomes responsive and allows for firmware updates. 

As an alternative, firmware update via bootloader menu would be more advisable. However, in this instance, it is likely, that the latest firmware you could update to is this. You would need to proceed to current RutOS afterwards.

Best regards,

Do you know if the modem will connect to the network on the auto apn and then connect to RMS without any local user intervention?

I went to test on a modem I have on the bench here, but this spare RUT955 has bigger problems (a stubbornly missing Mobile interface).

The modem on site is currently acting as a Modbus RS485 Gateway for some important data, which is one thing that it's managed to keep doing reliably. If I lose that configuration and cannot reset it, it will be a bit disastrous for us.

If your operator is included in this database, you should be able to connect to mobile network with auto setting, and, as long as the device is connected, you will have RMS access.

However, it is rather risky, considering the possible impact of malfunction. If change would be attempted, I would suggest to create a configuration profile, with custom set APN. This way you will be able to revert to current configuration with SMS commands. As an alternative there is another SMS command to modify APN settings: cellular for remote configuration.

Just thinking more on the ip_blockd file... does it ever clean itself out? I have a few modems in the wild with public facing IP addresses, but not static, so the chances of someone hitting those ranges just looking for an opening are very high.

On a side note, I've confirmed that a modem on my provider will reconnect to RMS after a factory reset. I'm just struggling to login to the problem child right now, so cannot confirm original issue fixed yet.

Blocked addresses have to be removed manually from the WebUI System -> Administration -> Access control section, Security tab, unless Clean after reboot option is enabled.
