Description

Hello,

I was looking at a router recently which had not updated since 0.9.17. I had updates turned on but upon pressing the button to manually update news, I would receive the notification that there was no update available. The reason being that the I2P HTTP Proxy tunnel had been disabled for that router.

My suggestion is to change the notification from a "no update available" to a message that states that updates/news is not available when the HTTP Proxy tunnel is disabled. That is one option, the other is to have a message on that page that informs the user that the tunnel needs to be functional for news/updates to be retrieved.

Thanks,
xmz

The update code - and the console code - can look for the HTTP proxy registration in the port mapper to see if the HTTP proxy is running, even before the update is attempted.

Similar changes for plugin download and update would also be nice.
