all devices disconnected and cannot re-connect

Suddenly, my 2 remote devices are dis-connected. I tried to add a new device(aspspc in the below screenshot), but it did not work. Before, I remember when we add new device, the remote device would get a notification. But now it seems the devices are not talking to each other.

Do you have any clues how to debug this? The console did not give much useful information.

Below is the screenshot.

Can you post a screenshot from the other side? Also can you click on the 3/5 number next to Discovery and post a screenshot from there?

Check what Discovery 3/5 shows when you click on the blue text.

Did not realize that I can click the discovery :grinning: Seems that IPV6 does not work. Yes, indeed I only have link-local IPv6 address.

The first screenshot is from my laptop. And the 2nd is from a dis-connected remote linux. Both complaing about ipv6.

The weird part is that IPv4 global discovery is slso broken. Any weird firewall rules or security middleware?

@bt90 I am not sure. I use wifi in my institution. I do not know if they set up some new firewall rules. But yesterday syncthing was working properly. Is there any way I can check if the package is blocked by firewall?

Check if you can access those https urls. I suspect you cannot.

In the remote device (linux inside my institution), v6 says Unable to connect, the other two says Secure Connection Failed.

However, something is different when I am using my home network with my laptop. The discovery became 4/5 when at home. When I using institution wifi, this is 3/5. Besides, when I am at home, I can now connect to one of the remote devices(lab-pc, this PC is not in my institution network). Still, at home I cannot connect to the institution linux. I highly suspect that my institution blocks the outcoming and incoming traffic of syncthing.

Could you try the following from inside the institution?

openssl s_client

This morning, when using my institution’s wifi, the discovery of both my laptop and the linux become 4/5. And it start to sync!!!

Thanks guys. Although I do not know what happened.

Below is the result of the openssl command.
