Bandwidth logging to cifs

    Hi I have set up 2 tomato routers as part of our company network for guest internet access. I need to use the bandwidth logging feature to track how many people are using it and how much data is being used.

    I configured a cifs share and have it logging to that. For some reason both of the access points create the original stat file called tomato_rstats_00259cbf2088 in the CIFS directory but after a few days of it being configured they are still at only 1kb and not saving any further data.

    Does anybody know what could be causing this? Any help appreciated. Cheers.

    Simple solutions first:

    Under Administration ---> Bandwidth Monitoring. Make sure CIFS is enabled (it should be) and then check and see how often it is set to save the data. I have mine set to every hour. Also make sure the "Save History location" matches up with what you have set under Administration --> CIFS Client. Make sure both are the same (CIFS1 or CIFS2).

    If that doesn't work, then check your log files on you local machine. Is there any indication of the connection being blocked and for what reason?

    If all of that is set-up properly, then I don't know. All I know is this is how I have set mine up for years (on numerous boxes) and it always works.

    cheers, i've checked what you said and it all matches up which is why it's creating the file in the first place. I think that it could be to do with firewall rules as the cifs location is on a different network. Which ports should I open?
