Mobile app doesn't appear to update

I have installed the Nebula mobile app on two android devices. Both devices show the same number of connected clients. However, that number doesn't match what I see in the Nebula web application. Looking at my current data android app claims I have only 1 device connected but looking at the Nebula web app the clients show 16 devices. The mobile app does appear to be updating becuase if I unplug one of the LAN cables from the Flex200 the mobile app shows that port as ‘not connected’. Is this something I am doing wrong?

    Hi @Reg,

    Thanks for the information.

    Could you share the screenshot that the client number on Android APP and Web GUI?

    Could you help to enable Zyxel support access and provide your organization name so I can help to check?

    Please go to Help Center > Support Request > Zyxel support access to enable and save. Many thanks.

    Here are the two screen shots. Even if the Mobile app claims there is only one device connected all the devices are in fact connected and functioning normally.

    I enabled access and created a case: 230201254

    Follow up from today. I have logged into the mobile app at least once a day and finally today the number of clients in the mobile app matches what the web interface shows.

    Hi @Reg,

    Thanks for the privilege and the screenshot.

    It is because of the different default periods on the APP and the Web GUI.

    The APP indicates the number of clients in the past 24 hours.

    However, the Web GUI indicates the number of clients in the past 2 hours.

    To ensure the client numbers, you could check on the Firewall client page(Firewall > Monitor > Clients).

    The last 2 hours:

    The last 24 hours:

    Hope it helps.

    That doesn't make sense to me. On feb 24 I captured screen shots of the differences. It was not until Feb 27 that the mobile app shows more than a single connection. If this is an update issue I would have expected the mobile APP ui to update on 25 or the 26th. I was checking multiple times a day so I know I didn't ‘miss this’ and not see it until the 27th.

    My take-a-way from this situation is the mobile application is not useable and I will un-install it and only use the web interface moving forward.

    Hi @Reg,

    Apologize for my miss checking.

    I have started investigating why the number of clients is 1 on Nebula APP.

    I will update you once I get further information.

    an interesting update. I have narrowed this down to attaching one particular computer to the network. If that one machine is connected the mobile app will only show the one particular computer as connected. If I unplug that computer the mobile app client count restores to an expected count.

    Hi @Reg,

    Thanks for the detailed investigation.

    Could you share the MAC address of that device for us to track? Many thanks.

    Hi @Reg,

    Apologize for the late reply.

    I would like to share some information with you. The client number on Nebula APP is the same as the site-wide client page > all client page for the last 24 hours. And the client number on the summary report page is the same as the site-wide client page > firewall clients page for the last 24 hours.

    I also found that all client page for the last 2 hours only shows 1 client.

    However, the firewall clients page for the last 2 hours shows 18 clients.

    To better clarify this problem, could you share your topology with me? We wonder if this could be due to the downlink devices of USG FLEX. Many thanks.
