Check that you have the DNS/gateway addresses set correctly on the DB, and make sure you have ICS (Internet Connection Sharing) enabled on the gateway if sharing a PC's connection.

thanks for that but if i have ftp and telneted to my box would that not mean that i have the correct addresses allready. i have found that in my dreambox settings i can click on the LAN setting, witch takes away the gateway settings and that will work fine with dcc ,or i enter my ip adds and it still works the same on other software but not in gemini manager. thanks for the reply .

The fact that the two boxes can talk to each other is good (means your network is basically setup OK), but the Dreambox cannot find a path to the big wide world so it's probably a gateway problem.

I don't know what your PC/modem/router/whatever setup is, but you must have ICS running or something similar, and tell the Dreambox it's route to freedom.

@Kerry Smith - Have you put in the correct box ip in the Gemini manager- Options-Box1 and saved ? If you then try 'Find image' what happens ?

You've more patience than me. My DB is on the LAN and PC speaks to the DB fine. But Gemini Manager is not exactly intuitive and after trying it twice gave up. I'm not even sure what it's supposed to do...

With blue button you see a list of emus with common interface first. Select the emu you want, press ok or yellow button.

To get direct internet connection, select dhcp tick in the db comm settings, reboot. Untick dhcp, replace the last ip db item to 24 (as in 192.168.0.24), save. Try ping.

For Gemini Manager, in the Options window, if you select 'Image Version?' at the bottom what do you get ?

Perhaps the GM does not work with 7020. What do you get with 'Image Version?' ?

Can you please give details of what you get with the three steps :-

(1) To see picture, with blue button you see a list of emus with common interface first. Select the emu you want, press ok or yellow button.

(2) To get direct internet connection, select dhcp tick in the db comm settings, reboot. Do you see any new settings appear ? If so, untick dhcp, replace the last ip db item to 24 (as in 192.168.0.24), save. Try ping.

(3) If no success, close any firewall, and try again.

1] i get a black screen with info bar telling what cam im using what encryption tha channel is using but no pic. my guess is that the cam is installed and working but maybe the wrong keys . i have seen some files cam config do i need them for every cam . [2] i tried that before it did change my settings but i do not understand thedirect connection does that mean ihave to put my broadband modem connection straight in the back of the dreambox .thanks for the help.

(1) Yes, for each emu, you need to upload the emu, the correct config file for the emu and the key. Get the latest from the Gemini home site IHAD database.

(2) I don't have broadband, but generally speaking, FTP works with only part of the info on the comm setings in the DB. For internet connection, with dhcp ticked you get the correct internet communication addresses sent to the db through the pc. So, the pc must have the internet connection on when you do step 2. Let us know what the comm settings are changed to.

The keys you are putting in are out of date. Use latest ones as of yesterday.
