We have recently discovered an issue affecting Winston up to v1.0.4 which is impacting internet connected devices making use of unencrypted or improper HTTP protocols.
Devices known to be affected:
- Tivo - all functionality
- Alexa - functionality to control some connected devices
- Facetime - Dropping connections
- Roblox - Inability to connect
- Fallout 76 / Xbox - Inability to download updates or connect
Winston v1.0.5 (Feb 2019) contains an important hotfix which restores functionality to most devices sending unencrypted HTTP-compliant requests.
Devices which send encrypted requests which do not meet modern HTTP standards (ie: malformed headers) are expected to be addressed in Winston v1.0.6 (Mar 2019).
To temporarily restore connectivity while we address these issues, please navigate to winston.conf -> Privacy Settings -> Advanced Settings and disable "Intercept port 80 (HTTP) requests" and save your settings.
