eBay has the boards starting as low as $35 US. Not too sure what shipping would be to Canada but it's a good start. You do need to get a parallel header ribbon which attaches to the board for your IRLP card.

Typo: Also the newer boards do NOT support flash based drives, instead using SATA or mSata.

Re: Troubleshooting node 1642

Recommendations? Not really. I would continue to troubleshoot your audio, especially the cabling. Have you plugged in a set of headphones to the audio output line? Actual failure of the audio output is certainly possible, but I would consider it unlikely with no other physical events indicating possible damage.

As far as the IRLP board is concerned, the Version 3 (green) board can be harvested to use with the Raspberry Pi, but it must be modified to work. I would consider the modification to be permanent (not technically true, but probably best that you think it is).

You could also upgrade to a newer Mini-ITX board. All of my nodes are based on the Intel DN2800MT board. The DN2800MT is no longer manufactured, but they are plentiful and cheap on Amazon and Ebay. DaveC sells new nodes based on a newer replacement, although Coronavirus has made them difficult to get. Also the newer boards do support flash based drives, instead using SATA or mSata.

node 1642 Yellowknife off

Ron VE8RT
 

We had our node, 1642, here in Yellowknife, NT, linked to the VE8YK
repeater fail today. It had operated several years on a mini-ITX
computer without much trouble. Now that it needs attention it is
apparent that the link radio also needs some work, it doesn't hold
memory with the power off and the power on/off button doesn't work
reliably.

If the mini-ITX board is at fault (the processor fan ceased) I may
consider replacing it with a RPi IRLP, after I've looked into what that
would cost.

Disregard. Im actually learning the whole linux thing haha. Just change networking to openvpn. Plus deal with sudo as mentioned above. Works perfectly!

Re: Network restart

Hey,
Sorry if I missed the answer already but i didn't see it in here. 
I occasionally have issues with vpn. I either reboot or run service openvpn restart. Instead of the bellow what would I add into custom decode for this?
if [ "$1" = "22" ] ; then sudo /usr/sbin/service networking restart ; exit 1 ; fi

I guess I would also need to know what to put in sudo.

Re: no outgoing voice traffoc

dsay2001
 

Thanks.

 I should have also mentioned that this node has been running for a number of years, and this problem popped up in the last couple of weeks.

 

 My 'etc/hosts' file looks like this:

 

 # For loopbacking.

 

127.0.0.1               localhost

192.168.1.5             stn3978.ip.irlp.net stn3978

 

Based on the info on the page you referenced, should it just have this?

127.0.0.1 3978 localhost.localdomain localhost

 

Interesting that the incoming audio still works even with the port forwarding error.

 

Don


Re: no outgoing voice traffoc

k9dc
 

The problem you describe is not consistent with the errors you are getting. The port forwarding error will absolutely cause INcoming audio from other IRLP nodes to fail, but outgoing audio (audio from your repeater to other IRLP nodes) will generally work.

In any event, this is fixed by you programing your router correctly. Sprint will not be able to fix it for you.

Please see the notes regarding "IRLP behind a Router or Firewall” at the bottom of the installation documentation page http://www.irlp.net/new-install. This is up to you to fix.

It seems odd that the troubleshoot script reports all outbound tests work, but we're not sending any outbound voice data. What does port 15425 do? It is forwarded through the router, so if that's the issue, I'll have to reach out to Sprint.

We also have Echolink running in the node, and it is working fine, so it doesn't seem like a hardware problem.
