Re: IRLP "Update Script" and ISP problems

It is easy enough to check...

Log in as (or become) user repeater and run the command 'crontab -l' You should see several entries, including ipupdate_cron. The */15 at the beginning of the line means it is set to run every 15 minutes.

Cron keeps its own log file, but you have to be root to look at it. after becoming root, either the command 'cat /var/log/cron' That will produce a lot of data, but you are interested in the most recent stuff at the end. You should see the log of cron jobs executed with recent timestamps.

ipupdate first looks for a change in IP, and only contacts the IRLP server if it has detected a change. a crappy Internet connection can screw that up. You MUST have a reasonably reliable Internet connection. If you do not, all bets are off.

Yeah, My ISP is crap! But the best I can afford for High Speed. I wonder if the ipupdate is actually being ran in my Cron. If it updates every 15 minutes than something is wrong. My node has gone days after and IP change and no one can get in or out until I actually run the update script. I guess I will try ipupdate from now on. Maybe I am missing something in my cron folder.....????

Ouch, that sounds really ugly.

The command 'ipupdate' is the one you want to use. Normally it runs every 15 minutes from cron, but if your IP changes, a manual 'ipupdate' can speed things up, but not by much. The 'update' command is used to make sure you have the most current version of IRLP installed. That runs once per day at 0300 (+/-) node time and normally does not have to be run manually.

For my mobile nodes (cell modem based), I hacked together a script that checks the node's external IP once per minute. If it ever changes (which happens frequently) it drops the current connection, performs an ipupdate, and reconnects to the node it just dropped. It does require an independent server somewhere to perform the IP address check against, and why I did not release to IRLPdom.

Honestly, if your Internet service is that bad, there really is nothing you can do to make IRLP work well for you. You are going to have to find a different ISP, or move the node to a friends house that has more reliable Internet.

My ISP is Digis. Uses a dish on the roof to connect to their tower. Their system fails all the time, connections hang up (lag), and the IP Addresses changes when the connection fails and reconnects. Or when I have to manually reboot their (modem), and my Router. Their system is always intermittent, hangs, and goes down all the time.

Then I have to run the update script, or I get no IRLP connections in or out. Hope this is more clear for you.

Hello Group,

My ISP keeps having problems with lag and having to reset their "Modem". I have to manually run the "Update' script to get my IRLP connection to work again. Sometimes my ISP IP address changes, and I am unaware of it. Untill I run the "update" script my IRLP node will not work. I would like to know more about my problem, and what I can do to fix it.

Re: DTMF Decode Time

Unless you need it (hardly anyone does), you should turn off DTMFREGEN, that would clean out all of those entries. But something has to be terribly wrong with the audio to the IRLP card. I see extraneous digits on my nodes, maybe once monthly, if that. Something is broken in your set up.

Perhaps you could provide some details of the radio used, and the audio path from the radio to the IRLP card and sound card. Are you using de-emphasized audio?

I've NEVER seen it that bad.

Hi Dave,
 
    No, he does not send connect commands, but he will trigger a "73" and disconnect. We just keep hearing "Last Station Connected" , "Link Status" , and "You Are Currently Connected To Node Number ..."  announcements while he is speaking. I have IRLPvAux with status commands and he triggers these.  He moved here from Denver a short time ago and at first I thought someone here was screwing with him on the repeater/IRLP Node.   
Here is a short sample of the log when he is speaking.

I would recommend checking the input level to the DTMF decoder. They
can do weird things if they are over driven. If a voice is doing it,
it must be a fairly unpleasant voice to listen to.

Re: IRLP "Update Script" and ISP problems

Ouch, that sounds really ugly.

The command 'ipupdate' is the one you want to use. Normally it runs every 15 minutes from cron, but if your IP changes, a manual 'ipupdate' can speed things up, but not by much. The 'update' command is used to make sure you have the most current version of IRLP installed. That runs once per day at 0300 (+/-) node time and normally does not have to be run manually.

For my mobile nodes (cell modem based), I hacked together a script that checks the node's external IP once per minute. If it ever changes (which happens frequently) it drops the current connection, performs an ipupdate, and reconnects to the node it just dropped. It does require an independent server somewhere to perform the IP address check against, and why I did not release to IRLPdom.

Honestly, if your Internet service is that bad, there really is nothing you can do to make IRLP work well for you. You are going to have to find a different ISP, or move the node to a friends house that has more reliable Internet.

Then I have to run the update script, or I get no IRLP connections in or out. Hope this is more clear for you.

Hello Group,

My ISP keeps having problems with lag and having to reset their "Modem". I have to manually run the "Update' script to get my IRLP connection to work again. Sometimes my ISP IP address changes, and I am unaware of it. Untill I run the "update" script my IRLP node will not work. I would like to know more about my problem, and what I can do to fix it.

Scandinavien Net

Thomas B
 

Hello all IRLP users,

I wonder if we have any interesting IRLP users who like to join us if we start up

a Scandinavien net and spoke Sweden and Norway language.

I suppose we have a lot of Hamradio operators around the globe who should like to

visit and spoke with us.
So if you are interesting you can,send me some info and after that me and my friend
should ask our friends up in Northern Norway if we can use one channel at Norway Reflector
one time a week.

My node is 5233 and you are welcome to try it and if i hear you i answer no problem.

Best 73de SM6KUT owner at IRLP 5233.

Also, if the old machine was an Athlon and the new one is an Intel, you could have problems like this. But usually it would not even boot at all if that was the case.

1. Wondering if the Dell has "hibernate" active.
2. I once had a sick HD on my IRLP node and found it
by running 'shutdown -F -r now' (-F = scandisk on reboot -case sensitive)
3. It may also pay to scan the RAM, but I can't locate the command right now.

High Resolution IRLP Logo Needed for QST Article

mbloom0947
 

QST has agreed to publish an article on the New IRLP Topic Channels in the April issue. Topic channels allow nodes to connect to reflector channels that are devoted to particlar topics like DX, Media, History and Current Events, etc. I'm looking for a high resolution copy of the IRLP Logo image. The best I've found so far is only 24KB. I asked Dave Cameron, VE7LTD, and he doesn't have one. If you have a better one than I do please email to mbloom@....

Hi Rick,

With DD-WRT, having SPI turned on will cause issues with inbound UDP
packets even though you have a forward rule. I think your original
port forwarding rules with the port ranges specified ( "NAT/QoS" ->
"Port Range Forwarding" ) will work once you disable SPI on the
firewall ( "Security" -> "Firewall" ). Make sure though, that you
have UDP selected for the protocol type for the UDP port range of 2074
to 2093 and TCP selected for 15425

Note: This is not disabling your firewall, it's disabling SPI on the
firewall. All your other firewall rules will still be in place.
