Web server stopped responding
Hi Ben, I recently migrated to a new mac, and I'm having a problem that I can't seem to find what is causing this.
Today, the SecuritySpy web server stopped responding.
Launching the iPhone app, or web browser would result in a time out.
I also use the camera feeds in Indigo, and these would also time out.
SecuritySpy did not crash, and activity viewer didn't show any abnormal resources being eaten. The log file does not show any abnormal errors, and the web log file had it's latest entry this morning, after which communication to the SecuritySpy webserver froze.
I also have Indigo on this machine, and I could access Indigo with no problem (apart from Indigo telling me the camera feeds timed out).
This is not related to external access either, because at home when trying the internal IP number, it would also time-out...
I don't see anything crash related in console.. so I'm a bit stumped.
In the end, all I did to get it responding again was uncheck both 'Enable web server' checkmarks and apply preferences, and then re-enable both checkboxes and apply preferences, and this seemed to have solved this issue.
The thing is, last week I had a similar problem with Indigo. None of my other network components seem to be causing this, this must be something with this mac.
I do have "Wake for network access" checked and "Prevent mac from sleeping.."
Have you ever heard of a mac that becomes unresponsive on certain port numbers for some reason (when SecuritySpy did not respond, Indigo did respond, so network access was working...)
This has me worried, my previous mac mini had been running perfectly for 10 years without ever needing a restart, and never a problem... since I moved to my 2019 Mac Pro, this is the second problem in less than a week...
