Hi everybody,

I experience a problem with my Jolla since latest update. I cannot ping or ssh my phone from my workstations until I pinged from Jolla to the workstation. Even when screen is on and emails are checked.

I watched tcpdump and arp entries and Jolla does not respond to arp requests. And it needs about 9 pings until arp is correctly installed in the workstations arp table. I tried it with different workstations and it's always the same. Only the default gateway is able to ping the Jolla on first try and has arp entry in table.

bash-3.2$ tcpdump -n -i en1 host
tcpdump: verbose output suppressed, use -v or -vv for full protocol decode listening on en1,link-type EN10MB (Ethernet), capture size 65535 bytes

I think that is related with the power management, the wlan module does not wake up the phone immediately if it's in sleep mode?

This could be the issue. But it's very annoying when trying some things in developer mode and phone starts to sleep because of googling something. And you have to wait 1-2mins until you can connect once again. I do now a workaround and let the phone ping the workstation all the time.

All Sailors I know use the usb-net to login in to the device and develop/debug on device etc, then the device also does not go to sleep mode (if usb wire is plugged in).

Would be cool to use usb. But we have a little restriction in adding usb devices at work ;).

seems this might be even a duplicate of with a work around.
