Server Not Starting after reboot

Postby g0141 » Tue Feb 21, 2012 9:08 am

Hi.
Noticed recently since version1 that when my pc reboots, although remote potato auto starts, the remote potato server does not auto run like it did in the past.
This obviously means I cannot connect remotely etc. ? ?

Not sure if I understand your problem here?
The Remote potato server now functions as a service, and therefore you don't need the settings app open for the server to work.
Check if the service is running under Start - Control panel - Administrative tools - Services.
Service is named Remote Potato.

Hi thanks for your reply.
Aye found the service under administrative tools etc. However the status after re-booting is 'stopped' and therefore I cannot connect remotely.
In the area that defines start, it is down as 'automatic' however, does not start ? . . .
If I manually start the service, then I can connect remotely as per normal without a problem. And then wehn it reboots I'm back to the service not auto starting.

Try to open the settings app and click media accounts and re-enter your username and password.

I've got the same issue. Looks like the server is setup properly as a service but does not start after a reboot.

I can't find 'media accounts' in any of the tabs of the setting app. Can you be a little more specific as to where to re-enter the username and password?
