I have created half a dozen zerotier networks this year (but I am a zerotier and networking newbie).
This week, I have created a zerotier network.
My laptop runs zerotier 1.6.5 (zerotier IP 192.168.195.57)
My teltonika rut950 runs 1.6.3 (zerotier IP 192.168.195.219)
I have created a managed network as follows:
192.168.1.0/24 via 192.168.195.219
Both my laptop and the router are authorised and connected.
For a few hours after setting this network up, I could ping the router on 192.168.1.1 and the windows 10 machine on 192.168.1.100 (including RDP to Win10). Then it seems out of nowhere, it stopped working.
I know the internet connection is working as I have a good Anydesk connection to the Win10 PC. Using this connection, I rebooted the teltonika router which seemed to help for another few hours and then a little later, boom no connection via the vpn.
Now today even via Anydesk, rebooting the router hasn’t helped.
As far as I can tell, I don’t have this problem with any other almost identical setups on my other zerotier networks/router’s etc. I have searched and read lots of community posts but nothing seems to resemble my problem. There is no firewall on the Win10 machine (but I can’t ping the router either). I have read lots of guidance and tips about routers but I fear I am not knowledgeable enough.
I don’t understand why it worked for a while then stopped; started again and now stopped.
Any guidance would be great.
