Did it take long to be live?

I'm not 100% sure I put it in right. The "TEST" function on my camera says "Success".

I'm not sure- I know they do approve them once you set it up.  Give them a little time.

Showing up now. Did a PWD reset and moved the upload to Meteobridge.

Might be just that the camera direct FTP was just approved.

I better shut down the Meteo for now and see.

And wipe the spider webs away......again. ](*,)

But wait, if I reset the PWD it must be the Meteo......soon see.

So yes, coming from the Meteo. Handy little box. Updating regular. I see there is the message it will wait for approval before going public.

Are you finding it spotty at all?

A half hour behind.  Refuses PWD when testing.

Growing pains?

Noticed this too recently!

Mines up. Took maybe a few hours to get approved.

I don't see many on the map though.... hopefully there will be a lot more in the coming weeks/months.

I hope I get internet back soon lol. Tech coming tomorrow.  Mine seemed to keep dropping off after 3 hours or so. Rejects PWD after a while. Keep us up to date on yours.

Are you FTP or URL?

If you're asking me I provided a URL.

Hope you get Internet back as well! I start freaking out with Internet.... :D

Cool. So URL method and it seems steady now many hours.

Maybe a hiccup on the FTP side of things.

Internet Tech is "Scheduled" between 8 and 5..........sigh........ :roll:

Once live again I will try a swap over to point to a URL.

Thanks for update.

Through FTP I get a successful connection message, however, no image ever shows up.  All setting are correct per instructions on the Ambient site.  Thoughts?

You get success on a test function or actual auto upload tries?
I have experienced good result on test but no actual upload happens.
Right now I get upload fail error on Meteo but it actually uploads many days now.
It was flakey at start. Maybe in some time it will pick up OK.

I get a successful test message.  I hit the icon that says "refresh once camera is connected" but nothing ever happens.
Could it be my images are too large?
