Ya that I do know that they all have the own IP Address all I did was change the frequency and the node stopped working so I think I need to update the node info to see if that fix the problem ?

Nope. you can only ever have a single node on the same IP address. It has always been that way, do not expect that to change.

 

If you are running Debian, you can sign up for the free IRLP VPN service, which will provide additional unique IP addresses for each of your nodes. For information see  https://irlp.groups.io/g/IRLP/files/IRLP%20VPN%20Service

 

I have no idea what changing your frequency has to do with any of that.

Log in to each node and run the command 
telnet IRLP.net 10000
That will confirm your IP address

Re: Change Frequency

David Cameron - IRLP
 

You have to make the changes from the node itself, or from a router that has the same "external IP" as the node.

I assume you are running nodes on the IRLP VPN if you have three of them. If that is the case, you have to turn off the VPN, update the IP address of the node on the IRLP servers, wait a few minutes, then you will be able to choose between the nodes behind the same IP as your browser.

If you want to bypass this, just edit the status page info on the node itself:

Re: Node Time Out

Thank you
I’ll go the route where I will leave the default time out for nodes and disable the time out for reflectors.

There are two inactivity timeouts. One for node to node, the other for Reflector calls. Default values are 240 seconds and 1200 seconds respectively. Node to node is set in the file custom/timeoutvalue. The reflector timeout is set in the environment file.

export REFLECT_TIMEOUT_VALUE=43200

Set it to the value you want. Although I would NOT suggest disabling it completely, rather set it to a value long enough for your requirements.

An even better option is if you have a particular reflector you hang out on and want that destination to never time out. Simply add an entry in custom_decode such that a particular destination is configured with the “notimeout" flag set, to not time out.

For example, I have three reflectors set to not time out, all others time out normally. custom/custom_decode entries below.

if [ "$1" = "9200" ] ; then "$SCRIPT"/connect_to_reflector ref9200 notimeout ; exit 1 ; fi
if [ "$1" = "9600" ] ; then "$SCRIPT"/connect_to_reflector ref9600 notimeout ; exit 1 ; fi
if [ "$1" = "9735" ] ; then "$SCRIPT"/connect_to_reflector ref9735 notimeout ; exit 1 ; fi


pico -w custom/custom_decode
pico -w custom/environment

You need to be root to edit the environment file. Just be very careful, a single keystroke mistake can render your node totally inoperative.

Re: Simplex node ID

The timer is based on PTT transmit signals, not COR (unless operating as a repeater controller, but that is a different ID script).

No.  The FCC ruled on that long ago.  It should ID whenever the

10 minutes of the last transmission.

Re: Simplex node ID

This is how the interval ID system is set up. It ID's on first transmission, every interval after that, and then after one interval of inactivity sends a final ID.

It is standard on all Debian IRLP installs.

Re: New IRLP node #piirlp

k9dc
 


Node numbers are not assigned to boards. Rather they are assigned to a software installation which you must have a board, to complete.  If you have been assigned a number in the past, which you must know, it is possible to recover the number by corresponding with installs@ IRLP.net.  If you do not know your number, or if the registered owner is not you, requiring an exact match of the email address of your request, it cannot be recovered.  

To obtain a new number, you simply perform a NEW installation. A number will automatically be issued to you as part of that process. There is no need to contact anyone for a new number assignment.  All NEW number assignments are vetted by a human before they will work. Sometimes it takes us a couple of days to review and install your new key. So do not expect immediate access to the network after just completing an installation. You will receive an email upon installation of your key.
