Hi Shane
 
From the After the Install Manual

Record three files like the three samples you have that are of similar volume and quality. The files should be named like the samples, just with your NODE ID in the place of stnXXX. You must email the audio files to installs@... so that I can put them in the queue for the next IRLP update.

@Home was just the first to filter port 80 on a large scale basis, and
they didn't do it "equally" -- some areas of the country are, some
aren't.

Yup. You were right. Called up @Home and moaned and groaned and they said
it was temporary to get rid of Code red and all... "should" be lifted soon.
I sure hope so... my box is unsusceptible to Code Red.. so it's totally
unfair to be punished.

Re: @Home

Nima Gharavi <Nima@...>
 

I agree with your suggestion, but I do think users would notice, especially
since unlike in your example.. I give out a domain name, not an IP
address... so a specified port number is a sore thumb. But, I have gone
ahead and told everyone to use SSL. ie. https://k6bw.org as opposed to
http://k6bw.org

I also agree that it should be up to us to block our own traffic, *grumble
grumble*... but oh well.. what can a lowly customer do.

My LinkSys router on BellSouth is getting hit with about 20 port 80 hits
an hour. So BellSouth is at least passing port 80 to it's customer. I
feel any ISP is obligated to pass all traffic to a customer, unless they
request otherwise. It's up to us to have the blocking in place at the
router, or request the ISP to do it for us. I don't have anything on port
80 thanks to this. I'm serving a couple web pages, they're just not on
port 80.

A suggestion...

If you have a static IP address (or do some sort of service for dynamic IP
addresses) you can still have a web page for your node. Just specify a
unique port number. e.g. http://60.60.60.60:83/index.htm

The :83 tells the browser to request at port 83 instead of the default 80.
You'll still be listed, but the URL in the link will look a little
different. Users won't even notice.

Tony:
Also consider that the Code Red situation is probably causing
significant additional loading on their network and blocking port 80 is
one way to minimize that.
The other thing is that they may be using Code Red as an excuse to block
port 80 and cause problems with people running servers.

Hello!

Most likely the majority of Broadband ISP's really don't like servers
in general. In fact my ISP (Cable) in the Metro NYC area forbids ANY
type of server. Mail, FTP, WWW you name it... not to mention only one
computer per MODEM/Gateway... (ie. no routers/proxy servers/ no nutt'n)

One that really does promote having a home webserver or one provided by
them and provides DNS services for a domain on your home system etc.
was Telocity (xDSL) I don't know if they will continue this with the
DirectTV merger or not. If you are close enough to a CO, (and can wait
for the process to get it installed) I think DSL is the way to go...
albeit a little slower than Cable, at least the bandwidth is yours and
they are in the data/ISP biz.

The cable providers are in the Broadcast and Telephone biz around this
area and don't provide much but a fast(er) connection than a dialup.
(No Web Space, no Web Mail no nutt'n) Download speeds vary from about
1.8Mb to 200K my average is about 400-800K during the evenings and
weekends. Upload varies too.... 100K to 900K... the average seems to
be around 200-300k.

Oh yeah on that last thread about the hub on the @Home MODEM/Gateway...
will not work around here... except with one computer on it at a
time... DHCP issues you only get one IP per box... so what is the
point. I'm sure that the places it does work will get plugged soon
enough.. if not you might get a bill for additional connections (IP's).

Hello Jon..
Reading your message, find it hard to believe that you can,t use a router..
The reason most of us use them is because our ISP only allow one IP address
per connection and by using a router we can install more then one computer
and share one IP address by ipmasq. on our internal network..
But every region has its own rules and if yours won't allow a router that
the first I heard of that...
Too Bad...

Re: @Home

I am not sure he understands how a router works. It only needs one IP and it
assigns local IP's to the computers. A router is a way to connect a Local
Area Network LAN to a Wide Area Network WAN. WAN is the ISP and the LAN is
your home network. They never really see each other so an ISP would not know
the difference. Internet sharing does the same thing. Most routers support
DHCP or PPPoe so there shouldn't be a problem using one. The router signs on
as if it were the computer and the ISP is happy assigning only one IP
address, then the route shares the internet with all the other computers on
the local network. How could a ISP know the difference?

Re: @Home

K1IMD
 

Hi Terry!

Well I did say that you can't (read between the lines) *BUT* the cable
company in their terms of service says you cannot... one computer per
Cable Box/MODEM/Gateway connection. ie. $29.95 per month PER COMPUTER
not PER IP/Connection.

While were on that subject... Beware ISP's are not always nice... I
caught my ISP attempting to hack into my system with a trojan/worm on a
specified port during a scan and issued a password etc. last December.
My software firewall caught it and logged everything. I was getting a
tremendous amount of port scans back then from them and others. I have
the files to prove it. I sent them an e-mail because I thought they
might want to know that one of there servers may have been compromised,
without being too specific about what I found, they sent me an e-mail
telling me that "all was OK and it was their backup DNS server out
looking for illegal servers www, ftp, mail etc."

I use a hardware solution now, so I don't have the logging that I had
before... I changed because I was concerned during a boot or re-boot
what would be happening since I was getting 10,000-45,000 port scans A
DAY! (something like a block of 10 ports every 3 seconds!) Talk about
sucking up bandwidth! This was last Oct-Dec and may still be going on
for all I know.... This was all before Code Red and other nasty bugs!

Word to the wise: Even the NICE guys can be BAD guys! Watch your front
door (Web Connection) and your back door (E-mail attachments) as
well!

Don't for even a few minutes expose your system to a broadband
connection without a firewall...

Re: @Home

K1IMD
 

Hi Glen!

Sure do know how a router works... been playing with them and proxy
servers for years... plus, I wrench a few small LAN's that use them for
various things.

The only thing that the ISP can "hang" you on is the MAC address...
maybe the guru's out there can tell us how much that tells.

I think you can gleen the device mfr. and item. Also, the MAC Address
is unique and does not change.

In fact, some ISP's require you to contact them when you change
computers or NICs (MAC Address gives it away. However, most routers
can "spoof" the MAC Address another computer on the LAN which can fake
them out.

If you change NIC/MAC Address my ISP will reassign your IP Address
automagically. It does not require a contact call.

Most likely the majority of Broadband ISP's really don't like servers
in general. In fact my ISP (Cable) in the Metro NYC area forbids ANY
type of server. Mail, FTP, WWW you name it... not to mention only one
computer per MODEM/Gateway... (ie. no routers/proxy servers/ no nutt'n)

One that really does promote having a home webserver or one provided by
them and provides DNS services for a domain on your home system etc.
was Telocity (xDSL) I don't know if they will continue this with the
DirectTV merger or not. If you are close enough to a CO, (and can wait
for the process to get it installed) I think DSL is the way to go...
albeit a little slower than Cable, at least the bandwidth is yours and
they are in the data/ISP biz.

The cable providers are in the Broadcast and Telephone biz around this
area and don't provide much but a fast(er) connection than a dialup.
(No Web Space, no Web Mail no nutt'n) Download speeds vary from about
1.8Mb to 200K my average is about 400-800K during the evenings and
weekends. Upload varies too.... 100K to 900K... the average seems to
be around 200-300k.

Oh yeah on that last thread about the hub on the @Home MODEM/Gateway...
will not work around here... except with one computer on it at a
time... DHCP issues you only get one IP per box... so what is the
point. I'm sure that the places it does work will get plugged soon
enough.. if not you might get a bill for additional connections (IP's).

While looking for spare SB16 cards I came across the following:
CT2900, CT2810, CT2800 and CT 1600. Any recommendations? Any not
suitable for IRLP use? Best card?

A while back you may recall I did a survey on behalf of Dave on SB cards.  The following is comprised of Dave's list plus the feedback received.

The AWE64 PnP Sound Card and Linux
submitted by Kevin, VE1KK.

This is my experience with trying to configure the AWE64 PnP Sound Card (CT4380) under RedHat 6.2 and the 2.2.14 kernel, for the IRLP, without knowing much about Linux.

Even though it's a PnP card, it will apparently not run as such under this release of Linux. Possibly newer releases work better? The good news is that you do NOT have to re-compile the kernel, despite what many on-line documents might tell you. Whew! :)

I ran sndconfig, which detected the card properly and presumably configured it, informing me that it was creating new isapnp.conf and conf.modules files in the process.

isapnp.conf is a file that lists all the possible configuration options for all PnP devices on the ISA bus. Initially all the options are commented out, allowing the card to configure in PnP mode if it is able to do so. It has a section for every ISA card, and sub-sections for each logical device on the card, which are further divided into potential configuration options for that logical device.

The AWE64 has 4 logical devices - Audio, Game Port, Wavetable, and IDE.

After sndconfig saved the configuration files, it tried to play a sample WAV file. This resulted in an error in isapnp.conf, in the very first line of the file related to the soundcard, which, in my case, is "(CONFIGURE CTL009d/290117783 (LD 0". Your numbers will vary, as the latter is the serial number of the card. Subsequent attempts at running sndconfig resulted in system lockups, something like Windows. :)

At that point, I started editing isapnp.conf, located in the /etc directory. Each card and logical device starts with a description, followed by options. Each set of options starts with, "Start dependent functions.....". I used the first set, or "preferred" options for each logical device. You must un-comment each INT, DMA, and IO reference in that option set, then scroll down to the end of the options for that logical device and un-comment the "(ACT Y)" line.

The Audio and Wavetable (Synthesizer) sections are the only ones used in the IRLP. You may choose to leave the Game and IDE sections as is, unless you're running a CD-ROM on the IDE controller, or anticipate using the Game Port.

After un-commenting the settings I thought I wanted, I saved the file and restarted, only to be greeted with several boot errors, relating to MIDI, including "No AWE synth device is found". I won't try to replicate the rest of the errors here. However, I was able to play WAV files!

After reading a lot of obscure documents, including many that were "specifically" related to this sound card and Linux, I came across a note that the program used for generating isapnp.conf (isapnptools, for those who are interested) often fails to detect all 3 IO addresses required by the Wavetable device. A look at the Wavetable setup in my isapnp.conf indeed indicated only one IO address - IO 0 (SIZE 4) (BASE 0x0620)).

Further research indicated that the address section of the Wavetable logical device should look like this:

IO 0 (SIZE 4) (BASE 0x0620))
IO 1 (SIZE 4) (BASE 0x0A20))
IO 2 (SIZE 4) (BASE 0x0E20))

Some documents show these entries without the "(SIZE 4)". Format your entries to match what you have.

I added these entries, restarted, and the AWE64 initialized the required logical devices without an error!

If you have other cards listed in isapnp.conf, and they're working, leave those sections of the file as they are. Otherwise it's "usually" just a matter of trying the listed configurations until one works. At least that's how it's supposed to work. :)

Hopefully this is helpful to somebody.

Kevin, VE1KK.
