The problem with that particular female GPIO cable connector is that it requires snipping 2 RPi GPIO pins to get the 26-conductor connection to seat on the pins. One is advised to purchase a 40-pin connector to replace the 26-pin, and avoid snipping the GPIO pins.

Thank you for the offer, but I can buy new for that much. And I don't modify my board.

Re: IRLP 5555 off the air for less than 1 month

Jeff,
  It could, and I need to look at the port forwarding.  I didn't think of that until now.  New residence, new network, etc.  So I'll check on that.  Thanks for jogging my memory.

I've moved from Korea back to the US and Node 5555 has come with me.  It's been off the air and  network for less than 1 month.  I thought 1 months was the date for getting kicked off the network for good and having to reregister.  It's back online and I wonder what I need to do, to get it back on the IRLP network and usable again?

Looking for a Version 3 board

Teton Amateur Radio Repeater Association (TARRA)
 

Hello Group,

A friend of mine moved away from here to a non-IRLP location. He found someone in that area who has a board but doesn't want to do anything with it. So . . . I am looking for a Version 3 board to send to him so he can get an IRLP node setup in his area. If someone has one they are willing to part with, please let me know off list.

Re: Pulse Question

Hello Dave,

I listened to their net they run on a different reflector this evening and didn't hear any of the pulseback. I guess I'll have to wait until Monday evening again and listen for it and find out if it is there again. I may be able to get someone to help me test it in the next couple of days.

Mick, you have run in to the classic pulseback. There is nothing you can do about it, you (actually the reflector) are the victim. Pulses are never detectable on the node that is causing them, except by using the pulsecheck command.

If you can attract the attention of the Reflector Admin, they have the tools to positively identify the problem. But there is a limit to the channels they can actually monitor. It is usually on one at best, and typically far less than one.

Wheezy is no longer supported by Debian and hasn’t been for years. Your attempt to install OpenVPN was not successful. It is possible to switch to an Archive site and get OpenVPN installed, but it would better to upgrade, at least to Debian 9 (Stretch). A web search for “upgrade wheezy to Stretch” will head you in the right direction.

Re: Xplornet

Some cellular/mobile networks will provide private IP addresses which obviate the need for VPNs.  I’ve done this with my SaskTel Mobility hotspot (they call their product M2M for “Machine to Machine”) which costs me a few additional dollars per month.  I know that Verizon in the US has a similar option but charges a several-hundred-dollar lifetime flat fee to have the service.

 

An option, if your cellular network provides it.  But you need to learn how to sell them on selling it to you.  SaskTel, e.g., does theirs through their commercial products division.  They were happy to sell it to me but it takes them awhile to understand that a residential customer knows what it is and actually wants and needs it.

Xplornet was the reason I was without IRLP for several years. We switched to Telus cellular data. Much better but would still be the same issue with ports.... But now that I'm using VPN there are no issues with my node. Should work fine with xplornet and VPN.

As long as you are not using your IRLP node AS your router, and IRLP VPN is installed on the IRLP node as directed, only IRLP traffic will be carried over IRLP VPN. So there is no problem sharing to connection as you described. In fact your situation is exactly on of the use cases where IRLP VPN is helpful. With IRLP VPN, no special routing or port forwarding is required at all.

That sounds pretty normal to me. Lucky you don't have to deal with Comcast or AT&T! LOL

IRLP VPN is free, all you need to do is request it from installs@ IRLP.net. The only requirement is that your node runs Debian. (does not work on CentOS or Redhat). See the FAQ in https://irlp.groups.io/g/IRLP/files/IRLP%20VPN%20Service
