Twonky License Server Down?

Post by Idea » Sat Jun 09, 2018 5:38 am

My media server is saying "Please re-connect to the internet in order to use Twonky Server" but it has an internet connection. I noticed that clicking "License Key" results in a DNS error. Is the license server down?

Is there a workaround for this?

It's Version: Twonky Server 8.5 and the licensing server appears to be at smartlynx.lynxtechnology.com which is down according to https://downforeveryoneorjustme.com/sma ... nology.com

Is anyone else having these probelms?

I was able to work around this by adding a DNS entry to my server's hosts file, I pointed smartlynx.lynxtechnology.com at the IP from twonkyserver.lynxtechnology.com

Still it's a reminder that my ability to use the software I purchased is limited by your server availability. I wish it weren't so.
