echolink node block

Jeff Daugherty
 


Hello I have the embedded IRLP/echolink box. Someone was calling from an IRLP node with no time out and leaving it linked no ID of person doing this. So I blocked the node. Now they come in through echolink. I disabled echolink via Vcon. But is there a specific way to block an individual echolink node like you can on irlp with lockout_list?

That is a setting in software. The file should be called darkice.conf and located in /etc folder.

I am just looking for a node that I am allowed to access when I am in Houston Texas. The node that I put at the end of my first email is operated by The Yarmouth Amateur Radio Club and I am the custodian of the club's 6 call signs plus I also am on the technician committee. The club operates 5 repeaters. I will try the app on the status page. Thanks.

Installed fail2ban, Lots Of "Already Banned" In Log

Wes
 

Using a Rasberry Pi system and tried to install fail2ban but it gave errors, so I then updated it from Wheezy to Buster following the "upgrading_debian-IRLP.pdf" from the IRLP site.
fail2ban installed fine after upgrade and is reading the logs and I see the entries into iptables, but the fail2ban logs show a lot of "already banned" warnings.
Logs all seem to show about 4-5 minutes between successive attempts from an IP, so wondered if there was some other firewall system installed with the IRLP image (SD card bought through IRLP site) because I see no other entries in iptables except the fail2ban settings.
fail2ban is set for 3 fails in 60 minutes gets 7 day ban, using jail.local.

Certainly not a Linux pro, but have moderate experience and am still learning, so I'm just not sure what else I should be looking for.
Installed fail2ban on an Ubuntu 16.04 system recently (and why I'm now trying to make it work here), and it worked straight away, no problems.  One thing I notice is that the version on Ubuntu is 0.9.3, and RasPi is 0.10.2, presumably because Ubuntu is 16.04 (that upgrade is coming too).
Any ideas?

Thanks.

Subject: Re: [IRLP] how do disable or uninstall IRLPvCON ?

I have found ways to control it. The first one is to make sure you only
run ONE window of IRLPvCON or IRLPvMON. The problem is the system is
designed such that every instance (window) polls the parallel port at
whatever the polling interval is (I think defaults to 500milliseconds).

Somewhere a conflict occurs between the irlpvport_sel binary and the
dtmf binary. When this happens, all calls to the parallel port stop and
freeze any program trying to access it. This only happens on PC hardware
(parallel), not on PI hardware (GPIO).

In this order:
1) Set passwords or other controls to ensure only ONE version of
IRLPvCON is running
2) Lower the polling interval within IRLPvCON
3) Replace the irlpvport_sel binary with a version that directly
accesses the parallel port (needs root access, but is less problematic).
Note that this uses a sledgehammer to put in a brad nail, but tends to
solve the issue. You can do this by finding the two locations on your
node where irlpvport_sel is located, and replacing it with the file
published in the /home/irlp/bin directory:

DO NOT DO THIS ON A PI BASED NODE - The problem does not exist there,
and this will render IRLPvCON not usable.

Find the locations:
root@stn100:~# locate irlpvport_sel
/home/irlp/bin/irlpvport_sel
/home/irlp/bin/irlpvport_sel.OLD
/usr/lib/cgi-bin/irlpvcon/irlpvport_sel <--- HERE
/usr/lib/cgi-bin/irlpvmon/irlpvport_sel <--- HERE

NOTE the subtle difference of irlpvMon and irlpvCon. There are TWO files
you have to work with.

Copy the .OLD to the location:
root@stn100:~# cp /home/irlp/bin/irlpvport_sel.OLD
/usr/lib/cgi-bin/irlpvcon/irlpvport_sel root@stn100:~# cp
/home/irlp/bin/irlpvport_sel.OLD /usr/lib/cgi-bin/irlpvmon/irlpvport_sel

Change the permissions on the files to owned by root, chroot when run:
root@stn100:~# chown root.root /usr/lib/cgi-bin/irlpvcon/irlpvport_sel
root@stn100:~# chown root.root /usr/lib/cgi-bin/irlpvmon/irlpvport_sel

The quickest means to disable the function (echoing Dave C), is to rename the index.html file that calls the code that causes the condition);

as root:

"mv /var/www/html/index.html (space) /var/www/html/irlpvcon-index.html" (move old-filename to new filename, equal to renaming)

Then irlpvcon won't play at all at the browser (unless specifically called by you), so it won't run the binary program and cause the race and resulting lock up.

There is no official uninstall, other than a total wipe and rebuild, without adding irlpvcon.

The problem is the polling that IRLPvCON does of the parallel port somehow creates a race condition with the same polling being done by the DTMF process.

Also should have mentioned, the live streamer, live.irlp.net:8000, no longer exists. That machine was sacrificed to make space for the new Synology RS820+ box that hosts the reflector and a few other machines. No one ever used it, and it was really O L D and was badly in need of a grave.

Re: flatcable to the raspberryPi

As a comment to this thread ...

If building your own Pi to IRLP cable you can avoid the need to clip pins on the raspberry 40 pin IO. You can use a salvaged 40 pin IDE hard disk cable, split the cable and cut away the extra wires from the IDC end leaving the 25 wires intact needed to solder to the female DB25 end. Follow Daves on-line example for soldering up the DB25. Saves maiming a Raspberry Pi that may be possibly used for some other project should you replace/upgrade your current Pi.
