Well, having up to 8 Davis stations at remote locations, almost all at mountain towns inhabited by old people without computer, now threatened by covid-19 and we all confined for months (and with high fines if we leave the houses or drive a car), a time limit from few days IS a conspiracy.

No, it's not a conspiracy - that's simply the wrong word. It's more exasperation I'd guess that after 2-3 months of urgent warnings to update some users have still not done so (or maybe not been able to do so). However, I'm aware the representations are being made to Davis on both of these issues, ie the fact that remote updating doesn't necessarily work and also on the COVID situation (making it impossible to travel to remote loggers) and maybe there'll be a further update from Davis in the coming week?

DAVIS needs to review the medical profession's Hippocratic Oath -- First, Do NO harm... -- and apply it to their Beta-releases! They'll alienate fewer customers that way.

If you have access to the interface then open the WLIP web page using its IP

I have made some SNIFF work with WL IP 1.15.
I don't have WLIP 1.13. so I can't confirm WLIP bug.

Connection WLIP to weatherlink.com is the same like it was. No changes were made in protocole etc.
Test shows that historical data is being send at every hour and 15 minutes. 0:15, 1:15, 2:15 etc.

WeatherLink.com is working on AWS Amazon cloud. It is very expensive and cost for transfer.
So when WLIP was sending 512 pages ofdata instead of one message. WLIP is sending batches of 7 historical entries. This made extra cost for Davis.
Because of extra cost of transfer they had to push clients to make update.
Many WLIPs are working in outposts. It is very inconvenient for users to make firmware update in WLIP, but this has to be done, or Davis will loos $$$.

How did you SNIFF? I have ver 1.13 and would like to see what the difference is between 113 and 115.

My PC has 2x LAN.
First is connected to the Internet + it is shared
Second is connected to WLIP

I am using this tool: http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/smsniff.html
It is simple to use.

If this history with bug is true, then 15 minutes after every hour it should start to send many packets with logger data.
After update to 115 it should send only the latest data in one package.

I was asked on PM to check elder firmware. I was treated with version 1.12.
I wanted to confirm that WLIP bug exist. It is sending full memory every 1 hour. In version 1.12 it is 0:50 and every hour.

Davis company with version 1.15 just want to save some $$$ on Amazon AWS transfer fee.
