Re: Login and Password

Hello again Dave,

Thanks again for the valuable information regarding my node.

I would certainly be interested in an upgrade kit. Please keep me posted.

That sounds like one of the first revisions, based on the VIA ML6000.
With only 256M of RAM, it will struggle running Debian 10, but it will work.
I have sold embedded upgrade kits to others running that same hardware.

You could recover and reuse the IRLP board. Perhaps consider converting it
into a Pi-based node with some minor modification.

I have considered making another batch of upgrade kits for embedded node
owners that want to breathe new life into their old nodes. The problem is I
need more than just a single order to make it worthwhile.

This kit would take a snapshot of your node and expand it out onto a new
flash drive (8GB or larger) to bring you up to date with the software.
The current hardware is all capable except the flash disk. I would make the
kits for $130, which includes Air Post shipping.

Hello Dave,

Thanks for the information.

My embedded node's OS is sys linux 3.10. Init ver 2.84 and linux
2.4.32 IRLP

Main processor is C2 667 A Mhz 133x5.0. RAM 229376K memory - DDR266 DIMM
2.5-3-3 256 M Transcend. Primary Master Transcend 2.0 Flash drive
Transcend 40 pin IDE Flash module 128. Mother board EPIA-ML rev A

IRLP V3.00 I/O interface 2002.

In the document that you sent, the screens don't seem to be quite the
same as pictured.

Even if I can ''reset'' the password, will this node still work
properly or is the hardware and software outdated ?

Can the motherboard be upgraded.

Can the software be upgraded

Can I salvage anything such as the IRLP board V 3.00

Any suggestions are welcomed.

Thanks for your help.

This document should help you, especially if you have an older
embedded node with a flash drive.

I am new to IRLP. A few years ago I purchased a used working imbedded
node from a licensed amateur. I had to delay my amateur radio project
for health issues. Now that I am back I would like to get my node
working. I tried to re-program the node (it will boot) however I
cannot login as I do not have the login and password codes. I tried
to contact the previous owner and amateur who programmed the node
without in success. They may have moved or passed away let alone
remember the login and password. When I purchased the node there was
a 13 page manual written by Dave VE7LTD with no mention of the login
user ID and password.

Any suggestions as to reset the user ID login and password or will I
have to re-install the software.

Thank you for any suggestions.
