I will PM you shortly and we can go over some process to get this working for you. What is the output of uname -a?

Linux 4.4.0-93-generic #116-Ubuntu SMP Fri Aug 11 21:17:51 UTC 2017 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

I intentionally obfuscated my FQDN, but in the actual output it is correct: the same FQDN I use to connect via SSH or web control panel. I can send you the FQDN over PM if you want.

Hi @JMSolo. I got your PM and responded, and then nothing after that. :hushed:
