Hello guys,

Some of you are waiting for our next dedicated server offer.
We are still working on it and we hope that will please you.

In the mean time i would like to talk about our cloud vm platform.

    Are you telling us that under French law, you are required to receive a copy of customers' passports? Who is your lawyer and at what zoo did you pick him up?

  • earlearl Member

    Guys.. Lets not ruin Ikoula's offer with this passport thing. It's their Business and they get to choose the rules..

    Ikoula has some great pricing and It would be interesting to see more offers like this on LET. Let's not ruin it for other LET members who is fine with the validation process.

    @fitvpn @cassa Regarding account validations if you do not feel at ease with giving a copy of your ID as i said in my previous offer sales department have other validation methods. It is just quicker to send this document.

    @rm_ i am checking with network team if a looking glass can be set for singapore.

    May I know where to check the credit balance?

    said: Deploy in France, Miami or Singapour.

    I only manage to view France and create instance there, how to change the region to Singapore and create instance in this region.

    Can select region from create new instance tab, select from there... I thought it is same with runabove portal, need to change region before create instance on that region.

    Since the credit can only be used for public cloud you cannot see it.

    Until you have ate up the credit bills will be automaticaly paid.

    Since price is limited by the plan you cant spend much than price showed on the page i linked.

    When you use the wizard for deployment you have the choice to deploy in fr us or sg zone, could you pm me your csikx account or contact support team please ?

    I signed up, but my welcome e-mail has been bounced here because it failed SPF checks. You (Ikoula) publish a 'hard bounce' SPF FAIL policy for your outbound mail ( -all at the end), but the welcome message was sent from a server not on that list.

    I therefore don't know how to manage this new service, I guess I need to connect to https://cloudstack.ikoula.com/client/ but that's just a guess, and my existing account details don't let me log in there.

    Also how do I know the voucher code worked, there was no indication during or after the order process that it had registered.

    My subscription ref: 84588

    EDIT: SPF fixed, mail resent (thankyou @ikoula), and yes you do need the login details from the welcome message.

    Thanked by 1rm_
  • IkoulaIkoula Provider

    @cochon

    1/ Can you send me the mail header by mp because i just check and SPF seems correct.

    2/ You have to login to https://cloudstack.ikoula.com/client/ but it is not the customer account portal it is cloud public portal so credentials are different but it seems you did not received the mail.

    3/ Coupon code has been recorded for the rest i answered in my last message.

    @Ikoula Nice offer, I've been looking for an alternative in Miami and more bandwidth in Singapore.

    EDIT: I think it is odd that after ordering this I am getting asked for verification again, on an active and previously verified account.

    mmm....

  • IkoulaIkoula Provider

    @FrankZ Could you pm me your account details and order number please i'd like to check why you were asked for verification again ?

    @spammy i just checked, the coupon code is working maybe you add a space in your copy/paste.

    update

    Deployments to Miami and Singapour are closed for the moment due to the fact zones are full but still open for private cloud.

    Since it is not the same prices i will not talk about it here but you can contact our sales department if you are interested in having your own xen host.

    Anyone else's VM went down about 1 hour ago? Mine did, and also no neighbor IPs within 10 or so from mine on both sides are pingable...

    update: from a support reply it looks like now it is required to explicitly allow every port you want to use (and ICMP) in the security group settings in the panel... else everything will be completely blocked.

  • IkoulaIkoula Provider

    I still continu to receive many pm so i did not saw comments here.

    @dragon1993 you can't, it is deduced at the end of the month.

    @rm_ just In order to add security to our offers even if the vm in zone3 are "direct routing mode" all ports are closed by default and you have to open the ports you wish to use.

    Some vm had an issue with open ports by default (that concerned only some new vm in zone3) this issue has been fixed that's why you had a connecivity problem.

  • @Ikoula said:
    you can't, it is deduced at the end of the month.

    Is this a restriction of operating with credit? Once the credit expires and we move to paying real money, do you then get to see the rolling cost during the month, otherwise it's a bit like getting into a taxi were you might have an idea of the rates but they won't let you watch the meter.

    Some vm had an issue with open ports by default

    Does this new restriction include ICMP(Ping) and SSH, I still cannot ping or connect to my VM when I could before, but can ping out by connecting to the console.

    and you have to open the ports you wish to use.

    I only have a 'Default Security Group' assigned to the VM but no buttons to add or change this, so it's not clear how I can open port access.

  • IkoulaIkoula Provider

    @cochon once credit is eaten prices from the page https://express.ikoula.com/en/public-cloud are applied. At the end of the month the system checks whitch plan ahs been used and how many hours then it apply the prices on the bill.

    That s not a new restriction i was trying to explain that is normal behavior all ports are closed.

    You found it, it is in default security group clic on it you'll see tabs for inbound and outbound rules.

    Laave a comment, pm me or contact support team if you have anymore questions.

    @Ikoula I've now received an invoice, I thought the bandwidth is unmetered?

  • smile93smile93 Member
    edited April 2015

    I think only 10Mb/s is free. Lucky you did not put 1Gb/s during the order.

    [“Insanity is doing the same thing, over and over again, but expecting different results.”]

  • IkoulaIkoula Provider

    @smile93 yep you're right.

    @rm_ it is not the trafic but the speed which is charged, it is mentionned on https://express.ikoula.com/en/public-cloud.

    Sorry if it was not clear, you can switch to 10mb/s when you want.

    As you ordered with the coupon code the bill will be paid by the credit.

    Ikoula said: it is not the trafic but the speed which is charged

    During creation of an instance in Zone 3 there was no option to select the network speed. So the traffic is unmetered, but only if the user manually limits their usage to below 10 Mbit/sec? This isn't mentioned anywhere.

    Ikoula said: Sorry if it was not clear, you can switch to 10mb/s when you want.

    How can we do that?

    Ikoula said: As you ordered with the coupon code the bill will be paid by the credit.

    Is there a way to limit the possible charges, since there's no way to view the remaining credit, and the system just starts to charge for "unmetered" bandwidth without any confirmation, and as much as 40 EUR in 10 days?

  • IkoulaIkoula Provider

    @rm_ i have news for you but i must get confirmations before tell you more.

    From the screenshot you seem to have two dedis with them and perhaps added balance with Paypal or CC, but those who first signed up just with this offer and used the coupon, have 0 EUR in the field that you marked.

  • IkoulaIkoula Provider

    The cloud public bills are set at the end of the month never in advance.
    @ rm_ i did not forget I am still waiting for confirmation, could you tell me if you tried to create a network in singapore zone ? that might explain why you had a 100mb/s network.

    You currently have a public cloud service #84649 ****, however your #73882 Mr. *** customer account does not have a valid means of payment. In order that the advantages related to your service provision are not suddenly suspended, we recommend you to fill in a valid means of payment within your customer account.

  • IkoulaIkoula Provider

    @rm_ Don't worry it is an automated message your account is still enabled.

    Sales confirmed me the credit spent du to the 100 mb/s network deployed in SG zone will not be deduced from coupon code credit. I left a comment in your customer account explaining that if there is any issue contact me.

    Concerning the possibility to deploy in SG zone they are still working on it.
