This week, I noticed that a change I made at work from my laptop did not find its way to my iPad at home. When I returned to the office, I noticed that the space I use indicated "Status: Offline" (barred red circle over the folder). My colleague confirms that he is having the same problem with our space, but another user indicated today that his spaces seem fine. We have several users of other spaces stored on our TDPS, but they are in many different places and difficult to contact, so I can't be certain that it's not working for everyone. The last access date I see on an individual file in the repository is "Nov 22 11:06".
Last week (on 2012-11-15), I successfully followed the instructions in this forum for running tdpsd as a service by a non-root user. The server and software continued to work as they should. Since then, there have been no other changes to the server. I checked the history for unattended-updates to make sure that a package hadn't been installed that might have broken the service, but there was nothing during the time period. The tdpsd logs and the watch-tdps tool do not show anything that seems much out of the ordinary, though I cannot be sure of the following, which I have seen reported elsewhere:
- Code: Select all
121122 14:03:54 [Warning] Got SIGPIPE, ignored
121122 14:03:54 [Error] NetworkHandler1: void CSSocket::writeBlock(CSSocket.cc:202) Broken pipe (32): '86.168.***.***'
Numerous similar errors also appear before the changeover to running as a service. There are some other lines that I do not understand:
- Code: Select all

Are these clues to the problem? What do they mean? What other information could I provide that would help those of you with more experience to guide me? One step I plan to take this weekend is to restart the gateway device and perhaps update its firmware, which has seen its share of problems in the past few months. There are entries in its logs, with respect to traffic to the TDPS, that seem to indicate a problem.
One odd thing that just happened was that I turned space synchronization on for two spaces that I created for other people to use — but which I didn't need on my own computer. Then I chose "Restore Missing Files", which worked! However, just a few minutes later, those spaces now appear offline. This seems bizarre to me.
Many thanks for your considerate and gracious help!
