I have an issue with my AZBox that is driving me nuts.  In the past I used a laptop with Maz to backup all files before blind scanning.  That way if the files get corrupted I can easily restore back.  I used the lan cable between the laptop and the AZBox.  I set both with a IP of 192.168.1.5, gateway of 192.168.1.1 and the subnet at 255.255.255.0  It has always worked fine.  The laptop was running Vista 64.  I upgraded the OS on the same laptop to Win 7 and now they won't connect.  I've turned off all the firewall, anti-virus. Turned on all the sharing rights.  Seems like something is blocking the connection.  When I plug is the lan cable the PC sees it is connected the a unidentified network, but I can't get the AZBox to connect, just errors out saying "Connection Failed".

How are the rest of you doing FTP with Maz and ACC.  Is there something in Win 7 I should be looking for?

Thanks

I don't know the first thing about the AZ. But in basic PC networking,
Two devices on the same "network" cannot have the same IP address.
If you are trying to make your PC look like a router to the Az (ie direct connect without a router or switch), set the
IP address of the Az one higher than the PC, and set the default gateway and network mask the same on both ends like you have.
Then drop to the command prompt and try to PING the Az. If no response you did something wrong.
e.g if you gave the PC 192.168.1.1 and Az 192.168.1.2 you would
Ping 192.168.1.2

Thanks for the response majortom, I finally figured out that I had to do a factory reset to the AZBox.  I never had that happen before.  I guess when it glitched while blind scanning this time it did more then corrupting the channel and sat .dat files.  Once I did the reset it connected fine with the AZBox on 5 and the Laptop on 1, Maz worked fine to copy the backed up files over.

Take care,

Fellow Members, your posts are welcome here! Do not worry about posting everything perfect. Different receivers and LNB's will give you different Frequencies and Symbol Rates. Some set top boxes, PCI cards and USB receivers, Do Not Require all of the same information that others may need. It is not Required to post everything that others may need to tune in a feed. It is just most important to share the find. We can always adjust the Frequency and Symbol Rates and try the various Modulations and FEC's on our own receivers until we get a lock and then give a polite reply with what works for your receiver, as that information might help others as well. We all appreciate the efforts and energy of the Posters!
