V2 Doesn't work (no real time display or waterfall) on Windows (by passing router and firewall etc) IPAD does have a real time display but no waterfall - all via Brighthouse (now Spectrum Communications). Reading Flex response - its not our problem - Brighthouse/Spectrum - its not our problem
Spectrum Level 3 support tells me they are not blocking anything inc fragmented UDP, they can't do anything. Given it is a known issue and Spectrum is one of the countries largest ISP I'm pretty miffed.
Works great if I use my mifi on Verizon at and extra $45 month.

From my previous post and with a few questions at the end
. "quite a few networks use PPPoE. This adds an 8 byte header to the already maxed out 1500 byte packet. So this packet would require fragmenting, but the "do not fragment" flag is set by the software so the oversize packet cannot pass.
"Since Ethernet has a maximum payload size of 1500 octets, the PPPoE header is 6 octets and the PPP Protocol ID is 2 octets, the PPP MTU MUST NOT be greater than 1492."
"on the VITA64 packets from the flex the do not fragement (DF) flag is set, this causes packets to be dropped as they are larger than the MTU size of 1500 on the VDSL infrastructure."
Does anybody know how many ISP providers or cellular networks use PPPoE?
Do flex intend to make there software compatible with these networks.
Would a warning with the software that it won't work on networks using PPPoE not be a good idea to prevent purchase by people who will encounter the problem.
There appears to be rather a lot of posts with the same issue though I'm sure the official response will be it's a tiny percentage?
Really useful information Andy appreciate it.
I have had no comment out of Flex, its a pitty really as V2 is really good, but useless on my home and my works network.
I agree it should come with a warning that it does not work on all networks but I doubt they will do that because people may interpret it in such a way which will effect sales. They lost a sale from me anyway, there's no way I'm buying a Maestro now.
