Re: RB411a with v.3.11 scripts break after reboot

Update. I posted in the scripting forum also, but it is not really a true scripting syntax problem, it is an OS command problem. v3.11 does not handle the saving of scripts properly. If you use a command in a script like the :log command, the script source does not save. Instead the results from the...

rb411 using 3.11 some scripts do not save properly

It seems that every script I add in a 411a, which includes a :log command in the script, the results of the :log get saved into the script source field instead of the script source I typed. Therefore, when I try to run the script again, I obviously get an error because it did not save my real script...

I found the answers.

Wireless adapters are not support until after version 4 of workstation or server ver 3.

The hard drive problem was because I needed to change the virtual drive ID to IDE0:0 in the advanced options.

Thanks anyway.

That should work as long as your tool logs the originating ip address of the computer which sent the update. It would be much easier and would stay within the scope the DDNS tool. Sounds like it has good potential.
