Hi Skip
Haven't been around much, but 3146 is still up. Got the "export"
phrase added OK and 0016 works great. Thanks! Is there a way to
disable it from the command line? And then enable again. I would put
it in custom_connect and use TT pad.
Glad you're doing OK...Don...W6RWN

the news server's timing can now be configured on a station by station

Thanks to Dave WD5M for providing the disconnect script!

If you been planning on adding the amateur radio newsline scripts to
your node but never got around to it? If so you might want to try
experimental node 0016's newline server. Just connect to it to hear
the current week's newline report.

To enable connections TO experimental nodes add
"export ALLOW_EXPERIMENTAL_NODES=YES" to
/home/irlp/custom/environment. Note adding this will *NOT* allow
experimental nodes to connect to you, it only give you the option of
connecting to them if you chose to do so.

Hi Grant
I've had the problem with my DSL router when servicing a 'locked' node
(software had been installed which locked this node to a reflector and
would not allow moving it or calling other nodes). In running the
re-install script over a new install of RH9, I found that I had a
problem with hostname. I would change it, and on a reboot it would
come up as
root@...
I tried all the suggested IRLP Group fixes I could find, then finally
Googled "set hostname RH9" and chose one of hundreds of hits which
offered a solution, then followed it.
Until I resolved the hostname issue, although the troubleshooting
script ran okay, I could not hear incoming audio. It drove me crazy
until I figured this out.
After getting the hostname setup, the I used the local_echo script to
assure that the sound card (I had already changed this twice!) was
working okay.
If your node does not come up with root@yourcall then I'd change
it just to make sure everything is okay.
My router could not recognize 'yournetwork' or whatever silly name RH9
was handing out for the hostname and domainname.

I know admins insist that hostname does not make a difference; I'm
just relating my own experience with the node and DSL modem/router. I
had to set up a virtual server under NAT in the router named the same
as my hostname. After that, all was well.

Take a look again at aumix. I've had a problem where aumix was
switching "R" on LINE to "P" and that eliminated the audio going out
to the internet. Could be a connector problem or a bad audio card.
To really test your local audio, download KC6HUR's local_echo script
and run that. Really great for verifying that your problem is in
sound card or radio. Running it records your HT audio, stores it to
disk, and plays it back to you to listen to.

Hi group.

I am trying to set up a node here at home but am having some trouble.

My telephone and internet come in to the house via the Huawei E960
Inzone wireless modem and no matter what I try I just can't get IRLP
up and running.

There are several computers in the home and they all perform their
respective tasks including the Asus EeePC 900 which runs my RF
Echolink node.

I have been in touch with the installs team and together we have
gone through several tasks, but have had no luck and this baffles them
too because, as I say, my Echolink node runs off the same modem and I
have absolutely no problems with this, I have done nothing to the
modem in as far forwarding ports etc. I have also been in touch with
my IP and they tell me there is no router built in to this modem (
that they know of ) but they appeared very vague and maybe didn't
understand the ability of the modem themselves.

Just wondering if anyone else out there has had anything to do with
this type of modem and what they have done to get round the problem,
does anyone have any idea why Echolink works "off the shelf" and not
IRLP as they both work along similar lines.

I have done quite a bit with my Internet Provider over 2 years in
trying to get IRLP working.. Firstly I had cable coming in to the
house, that didn't help so I tried ADSL, that too didn't work now I
have gone to the wireless modem and this too appears not to work, lots
of modems, lots of expense and still IRLP doesn't work, I suppose the
next thing to try is getting rid of the current Linux box and get
another, but I would rather not, the wife and the purse strings syndrome.

Anyway, other than buying one of those built up boxes ( which at
this point in time doesn't guarantee that I will get IRLP working )
what else can I try.
Any help will be very greatly appreciated.

I don't run Echolink, so I'll ask ---does it use the same ports as IRLP?
I found that a DSL wireless modem/router that my phone company
recently gave me just would not forward IRLP ports correctly. I tried
virtual server, port triggering and putting the IRLP box in the DMZ.
In retrospect, perhaps it was an inability of the router to resolve
the linux hostname...it recognized the box as "Unknown", it did not
read the hostname or domain name ....localdomain...

So I got another DSL router, of a different mfg. And using, under
NAT, virtual server where I had assigned a host name properly, and a
domain name ....localdomain, and set up the rule for port forwarding,
things worked well.

One thing you can do is crawl the ports of the router using one of the
popular port crawling software tools. It might be good to get your
ISP involved because you probably will need to crawl your OUTSIDE IP
address to make sure those ports are open.

Often, folks forget to save their changes in routers; just apply them,
and on the next boot up they are lost.

Many routers will not port forward to a DHCP server address, even if
it's the only address on the inside network. Be sure you have a
static IP address on both your node, and your router. Many cable
modems, and DSL modems, use DHCP for dynamic addressing.

Are you sure they ISP gave you full admin rights on the modem/router?
Not just user rights?
If not, get them to give you the admin password, then back up the
configuration before you begin playing. I've literally wasted weeks
trying to convince the phone company the problem was at their end; and
eventually they came to realize it was. Try and remain patient and
try to get the tech documentation CD that most modems come with. The
phone company has it. Finally, try and find out if they are blocking
ANY ports used for SIP, and if so, what ones. Make sure you have UDP
2074-2093 forwarded....also forward TCP 10000 and 8873 and 873 if all
else fails; perhaps that will work.

Is your node set with a static address behind the router? if not, I bet the IP has changed and is not where you think it is. IRLP nodes behind routers should be set with a static IP address outside the range of addresses used for DHCP.

Also even though troubleshoot-irlp says only TCP 15425 is broken, the UDP ports are also likely not working. Make sure UDP 2074-2093 is pointed to the same address.

Re: USB question

David Cameron - IRLP
 

No that is firewall related. Check that port forwards are setup to the
internal IP address of the node.

Nodes are not designed to be run from the same IP. In order to change
the status page info for 3669, you need to either:

1) Put 3669 on a new IP address
or
2) Put 3484 on a new address.

UDP hole punching and IRLP

David Cameron - IRLP
 

All developers,

IRLP has the capability of running behind "some" firewalls without the
need for port forwarding. This is tricky though, and requires an
inbetween server and some other goodies.

The truth is that if you can control the firewall, port forwarding
will always be better, but I want to explore the possibilities of
using hole punching.

The problem is I don't have much time to play with this. What I am
looking for is someone who has the time to do some simple IRLP tests
using methods described in :

http://www.h-online.com/security/How-Skype-Co-get-round-firewalls--/features/82481/0

This is a method where a central server portrays data about the UDP
connection to the associated parties, and then the data is sent
between the two nodes directly.

This would make the server's role more critical, but only for those
small number of nodes that are stuck behind an uncontrollable firewall.

This may also work for running more than one node from an IP (but no
promises!).

Any takers want to test getting a connection running? Any node with
the VPN package installed will have both the netcat and hping2
utilities needed to make this work.

I was able to connect to the Echo reflector. The audio coming from

I also tried AUMIX, and that worked fine, too.

Now all I have to do is find out why I get an "Audio Devices Not
Set
Correct" error when I try to connect to the echo reflector!
Because the device files are owned by root - try:

chown repeater:repeater /dev/dsp /dev/audio /dev/dsp

I'd have to experiment a bit to recommend the right fix for this.
A way that seems effective...

Edit the file /etc/security/console.perms.d/50-default.perms

Find the line:

<console> 0600 <sound> 0600 root

and change it to:

<console> 0600 <sound> 0660 root.repeater

Then reboot. All of the audio device files should be read/writable
by
members of the 'repeater' group after that, and all should be good.
