Can't connect offline

Hello
I was running a V2 node for a long time and switched to V3, so I’m somewhat familiar with setting up the node.

For some reason my “status” shows offline.
I did port forward and setup my IP with DNS, but it still shows offline. And I even disabled my windows firewall to see if it would help.

My uptime is at 16hours and last contact is 17699945h 27m ago.
I’m running V 0.34.6
Uptime checks is 0% and audit checks is 100%

I’m not sure what else to do!

Welcome to the forum @KingBennon!

Can you verify if your identity folder has 6 files in it ?

Please, check that the contact.external-address: is specified with a port, like this

contact.external-address: your.ddns.address:28967

You can see your current parameter:

sls "external-address" 'C:\Program Files\Storj\Storage Node\config.yaml'

I deleted the " Downloading versions from" stroj links as it wont let me post with more than 2

Also for the “contact.external-address: your.ddns.address:28967”
I had my IP address:port
I changed it to my ddns address:port

Your identity is not signed. It needs to have 6 files in it.

Refer the documentation: https://documentation.storj.io/dependencies/identity#confirm-the-identity
