Restore USB Staff

Post by jpt »

I need to restore the USB Staff to its original state. My UBOSbox is connected directly to my router via Ethernet, but does not seem to get an outside connection. I thought wiping the USB staff would force it to retry, as I played with different ports. Now I only see the shepherd account and the flock directory created. Is there any other way to force the box to reset itself?

Hey, :)
I think you should take your situation separately.
Connecting UBOSbox to Ethernet is a different issue with UBOS staff.

1. UBOSbox should be connected to the public internet natively when you plug your UTP cable into the box directly.
If not, you should check the physical environment outside the box first.(i.e. cable, ports, internet connection, modem, firewall, VPN etc).

2. UBOS staff plays a roll for the wireless connection. On top of that it also supports the automatic site set up by default.
So you should be able to do that by the default when you plug your staff into the box.
Unfortunately if you can't get any access to the internet, then the box will refuse to install, for it requires connection to the internet in order to download the packages from it.
FYI, any of USB stick can be a staff though. In my case I am using two staffs(one from the Indiecomputing, and the other from my own)

As my advice you should resolve the first thing first(internet connection via Ethernet).
