Connect to the Bridge/CMVR

It is possible that you may run into an issue where a bridge/CMVR is reporting as Internet Offline but you expect it to be reporting as online. Connect directly to the bridge using:

  1.  A usb keyboard and a monitor with an hdmi cable
  2. A usb cable and your mobile phone
  3. A laptop connected to the same network as the bridge and PuTTy (or some other SSH client) installed on the laptop
Connecting via PuTTY
This option requires Windows
  1. Download PuTTY
  2. Ensure your laptop's network interface is set to DHCP
  3. Connect your laptop directly into the CamLAN port of the bridge/CMVR
  4. Run Putty
  5. Enter into the Host Name bar
  6. Enter 22 into the Port Name bar
Some Eagle Eye Bridges/CMVRs will require port 33022.
You may receive a PuTTY Security Alert, select No
  1. Enter the login information provided by Eagle Eye Networks support.
  2. Select Network Diagnostic Info

Once connected to the bridge you will be able to run some diagnostic tests to help diagnose the issue at hand.

1) Login using the username/password provided by Eagle Eye Networks support.

2) Navigate to Network Diagnostic Info and run the test. 

3) Depending on the results follow the below steps.

  1. Check the bridge's network connection. If the bridges Wan is a static address the issue is likely caused by incorrect network settings. If this is the case capture wan settings, pictures of other device settings and physical network connections.
  2. Check to make sure the port that the bridge is connected to is enabled. You can test this by plugging in your computer and loading google. 
  3. Check to make sure the cable is good.
  4. Check the model of switch the bridge is plugged into. If the switch is a managed switch (Cisco, Juniper, etc)

IP address but unable to connect to the cloud

The issue is likely the necessary outbound ports are not open. Make sure that the network admin has the network requirements checked off. After verifying all of the necessary ports are open, then contact support with the network settings. 

All tests passed
