I have been searching these forums for a couple of weeks and have not found a working solution.

I bought a new Ooma Hub and Scout combo. It's working fine for making and receiving calls (aside from some echo issues) however when I place the Ooma Hub between my cable modem and my router, it blocks virtually all incoming ports to my network. The solutions I have found involve logging in to or its IP address equivalent However neither one works. I've tested in Firefox 3.5/3.6 and Safari 4. I get an error that the site could not be found. However I can ping so I know that it's there.

I have also tried connecting my PC directly to the HOME port of the Ooma and leaving my router completely out of the picture. The results are the same, so at least I know that it isn't my router which is blocking access.

Any suggestions for getting into the Ooma Hub configuration page? Thanks in advance.

I should add that connecting my PC to the HOME port of the Ooma Hub results in the PC getting a self-assigned IP address. It does not receive a 172.27.35.x address. Manually assigning the PC at still does not allow me to access by name nor IP.

It's as if both the DHCP server and the web server on the Ooma Hub are not running.

Are you using a laptop that also has wireless enabled? If so, you must disable the wireless.

telnet: connect to address Connection refused

I did this with my computer set to a manual address of, subnet mask of (I also tried and the gateway & DNS set at I used the manual settings on my computer because DHCP still fails to get an address and manually assigns a 169.x.x.x self-assigned address.

The green link light on the HOME port on the Ooma Hub is lit, indicating there is a physical connection established.
