Something is broken.

IRLP does not change any of the default logging done by the OS. The
IRLP logs (/home/irlp/log/) rolls monthly. Is your disk full?
Although that usually makes the machine crash.

Check to see if syslogd is still running. If it is not, I have no
idea why.

Hi Dave

While Speak Freely is a very old protocol, it never made made it into
the realm of common VoIP protocols such as SIP, SCP or H.323 that are
routinely automatically handled by most modern firewalls today. After
all, there are only a couple thousands Hams using it, and only a
fraction of them are not directly on the Internet. Why would anyone be
interested? Same thing for Echolink.
H.323 handled "automatically" by modern firewalls is laughable. I take
at least one trouble ticket a day from a large corporation where the
firewall has blocked the H.225 messages after a period of time and the
calls are dropped. Usually that firewall is a Cisco ACS or PIX that
hasn't been patched or upgraded for a long time. If it's not, it's a
smaller organization trying to talk to the larger corporation with even
less technical resources and people who know what's going on to handle
or troubleshoot the problem using some even cheaper, dumber firewall. I
contend that if even Cisco can't get it right, the protocol is hosed and
won't ever be 100% handled right by most firewalls. My own company
bought the rights to a small Linux-based firewall that DOES do H.323
right, and I have counted these shipping out by the pallet-load, and
being put in to handle Video-only firewall "bypass" at most of the
Fortune 500. Should they just fix their "real" firewalls? Yeah. Do
they find it much easier to install a video-specific firewall and bypass
the bigger, "smarter", more expensive box in almost all cases. Yup.
Stupid isn't it? I doubt we make much money on the things -- they're
just our "solution" to get things to work right so we can sell the other
videoconferencing gadgets we make. Just a guess there, they don't share
sales data with us lowly techs.

SIP is a whole different story -- just yesterday I found that two major
manufacturers of SIP gateways both incorrectly handle the renegotiation
of RFC 2833 out of band DTMF if the call started with in-band DTMF; they
switch to using RFC 2833 after a phone handset simply puts the call ON
HOLD (and renegotiates full capabilities-exchanges during the SIP
REINVITE that ensues) and then returns to the call. Thus... put any
call on hold, once you return, your tone pad does absolutely nothing.
One vendor is "looking into the problem", the other is never going to --
they simply don't care and call the hold button "undefined behavior" in
the standard. Nice, huh? Hold buttons are "too hard" for us now in the
SIP world, I guess. Ironically, most implementations of the free
Asterisk SIP PBX do it right. Go figure. Free.

This telco stuff is not the well-engineered system we had when a single
quasi-governmental organization ran it all, and set real engineering
standards. But it'll probably keep me in a tech support job until the
day I die, or until whatever company I work for goes under, under the
load of CRAP engineering work being done out there...

Somewhere over the rainbow, a phone call could be trouble-shot simply by
measuring line levels and voltages with a VOM, back when the network was
circuit switched. Now the deployment of distributed packet sniffers
EVERYWHERE is the only hope in maintaining the same level of quality.
We're seeing that transition now with major companies who've moved to IP
based telephony... they now buy such distributed "test gear" and place
it all over their supposedly "simpler and cheaper" packet-based
networks.

Is this good or bad? I won't say. It just is...

So... the fact that IRLP and SpeakFreely still seems to be the most
stable, workable network in analog to digital Amateur Radio linking
after ten plus years, probably isn't too surprising. Dave may work on a
way to act like Skype, and it might work, but the reliable, working way
to do stuff is a single IP, to a single machine, and will continue to be
so for many years, I think.

It'll be fun to see what Dave comes up with though -- he's certainly
talking about using some centralized servers as "traffic cops" and doing
Skype-similar things. Did you miss that message, Dave G? (I'm wondering
if your spam filter ate it or something... he did say he's testing some
ideas here in the list a few days ago...)

Tonight on my way home I fired up my iPod to listen to a podcast by
well-known and very well-spoken Steven "Force" Tupper, an aviation
enthusiast from Michigan. What I heard chilled my heart to the bone.

The TSA under the auspices of "Homeland Security" has floated a
proposal to restrict and in my opinion, DESTROY numerous legendary
aircraft, by limiting their use so heavily that you will never see
them in the skies over America again. While this may sound
"alarmist", please trust me, it's not.

You all know me, and know that I can write well, expressing my
concerns with politics, living, and even the banal things of life in
words, fairly well -- but I can not possibly top the writing of Mr.
Tupper.

Even more eloquent is his VOICE in his podcast, where he perfectly
expresses the frustration, and sheer TERROR that the TSA itself has
brought down on the United State's Aviation community with the
proposal they've recently released, inappropriately entitled, the
"Large Aircraft Security Program", or LASP.

For the best and most intelligent commentary I've heard on the topic
to date -- PLEASE ... LISTEN to his podcast at:

<http://media.libsyn.com/media/airspeed/AirspeedLASP.mp3>

You really must just hear... his voice. I do hope his server can
handle an onslaught -- if it can't, wait, and listen later.

(I fully intend to help him with the costs associated with
distributing his podcast if he needs it this month, it's just that
important. Steve, please let me know if you need assistance. I have
worked in data centers and web-based businesses, and I understand that
publishing these things online to large numbers of people, is NOT free.)

It's just over 30 minutes in length, and he NEEDS YOUR SUPPORT -- even
if you are NOT a pilot. He gives instructions in the podcast.

If you honestly do NOT have time to listen, at least READ and RESPOND
to his letter in response to the TSA's Notice of Proposed Rulemaking.
He needs your input by TOMORROW. The entire text of his podcast is
also available at the link below, if you read faster than you listen
-- so to speak.

<http://airspeedonline.blogspot.com/2009/02/large-aircraft-security-program-capt.html
>

If this non-legislative rule change comes to pass, you and your family
may never SEE many historical aircraft or have an opportunity to
purchase a RIDE in any classic "warbird" aircraft in the skies over
America ever again. The rule is BROAD and affects modern aircraft
also, but the aircraft we will miss the most, are the ones of our
history that tell our story as a country.

To NOT take action and RESPOND means that you've let a small group of
tireless aviation historians, restoration specialists, mechanics,
pilots, and everyone who's ever watched an airshow with aircraft from
the classic Warbird fleet down. WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT.

PLEASE read or listen. Mr. Tupper explains it far better than I
possibly can. The TSA's proposal adds NO security to our nation
whatsoever. It's simply government run amok.

Here's a list from Mr. Tupper's website, of aircraft that I personally
believe you will RARELY see in the skies of America again, if the
TSA's "LASP" passes into being without even so much as a single
legislator overseeing it, and little to no due-process available to
anyone who violates it.

Aircraft and Max Takeoff Weight (Varies within Type)
Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress - 65,500
Chance Vought F4U Corsair - 14,449
Consolidated B-24 Liberator - 65,000
Curtiss C-46 Commando - 48,000
Curtiss SB2C Helldiver - 16,800
Douglas A-26 Invader - 35,000
Douglas DC-3/C-47 Skytrain/Dakota - 31,000
Douglas B-23 Dragon - 32,400
Fairchild C-119 Flying Boxcar - 64,000
Fairchild C-82 Packet - 54,000
Ford Tri-Motor - 13,500
Grumman AF-2S Guardian - 25,500
Grumman Avenger - 17,893
Grumman F6F Hellcat - 15,415
Grumman F8F Bearcat - 12,947
Grumman HU-16 Albatross - 33,000
Grumman G-73 Mallard - 12,750
Junkers Ju 52 - 24,200
Lockheed C-60 Hudson - 18,500
Lockheed L-18 Lodestar - 17,500
Lockheed PV-2 Harpoon - 31,077
Lockheed T-33 - 15,100
North American B-25 Mitchell - 41,800
North American P-82 Twin Mustang - 25,591
PBY-6A Catalina - 64,450
Republic P-47 Thunderbolt - 17,500

You may not be a pilot, you may not even care about ANY aircraft --
but if you care about the pilots who fly them, the mechanics who
wrench on them, the crowds at hundreds of airshows across the country
who see them, and the thousands of thousands who lived their lives
building an American legacy in Aviation -- one of our best legacies
ever -- please follow Mr. Tupper's request, and add your name to the
list of people who AGREE with him in his response to the NPRM sent out
by the TSA.

I, like you, am a busy person -- I had other things to do tonight. I
would much have preferred an enjoyable evening pursuing other things.
Hell, I would rather have just forwarded you all a few jokes or stayed
"on-topic" on our favorite mailing lists, but I can not sit by idle
and watch this come to pass.

Mr. Tupper needs your support no later than mid-day tomorrow, please
listen, read and RESPOND.

Thank you for your time, and I apologize if this is FAR off-topic for
some of the mailing lists you all know me from. Some lists, it's more
on-topic than others. This is so aggregious, so saddening, so
frustrating, that I just HAD to share. Like Mr. Tupper -- I'm trying
hard to keep this message "PG Rated". VERY hard.

I just can't think of any more caring, thoughtful people in all of the
other hobbies and passions of my life to share this critical
information with, and to BEG for your support of Mr. Tupper's letter
in response to the TSA. Mr. Tupper also points out that the rule
isn't far from encompassing other iconic aircraft, and says that if
the TSA enacts this rule and LOWERS the weight limitations low enough
to encompass such iconic aircraft as the North American P-51
"Mustang", then... as he so eloquently puts it:

"Be very careful. You might get away with decimating other grand dames
of the skies, but every redneck, suit, line worker, banker,
lumberjack, lawyer, cop, fireman, landscaper, fast-food cashier, and
child able to stand recognizes the mighty P-51 Mustang. Not that
aviation would fail to miss the other aircraft that the TSA would so
cavalierly tear from the sky, but at least we have the P-51 Mustang
still guarding the 12,100-pound boundary."

Thank you deeply from the bottom of my heart if you take the time to
listen or read, and especially if you will send your full name as a
U.S. Citizen to Mr. Tupper with your comments.

Aviation is one of my deepest passions, and I can't imagine that even
the most disinterested person in Aviation would let these great ships
of our past be virtually banned from our skies in a single powerful
and misguided attempt at "security" over liberty, in this great country.

Enjoy the rest of your evening in peace, please help, and thank you
again.

Re: How Skype & Co. get round firewalls

IRLP was never intended to be placed behind a firewall. IRLP nodes are supposed to be placed directly on the public Internet. If you are forced to be behind a firewall of some kind because you are sharing an address with other machines, it can be made to work. But there are no centralized servers anywhere in the network to support the TCP connection as Skype uses. All connections are direct, node to node or node to reflector.

While Speak Freely is a very old protocol, it never made made it into the realm of common VoIP protocols such as SIP, SCP or H.323 that are routinely automatically handled by most modern firewalls today. After all, there are only a couple thousands Hams using it, and only a fraction of them are not directly on the Internet. Why would anyone be interested? Same thing for Echolink.

where I do other things at the time of connect, but it should work the
same.

Interactive Mapper Not Showing Location

josescuervos <wannabefirst@...>
 

I'm new node 4024. While my status page shows accurate Lat / Lon, the
interactive mapper comes up blank. On Google Earth however, the node
shows up dead in the middle of my roof. Any ideas why the interactive
mapper on the status page comes up blank (no map, no anything)?


How Skype & Co. get round firewalls

Lawrence Glaister <ve7it@...>
 

A very interesting article.
Since IRLP has a distributed server architecture already in place for
updates, reflectors, status and IP resolution perhaps these tricks could
be used to avoid the problems with thousands of nodes having to figure
out the router firewall configuration issue that has been getting a lot
of discussion lately.

David,
Writing good scripts is an art form, and I'm no artist, but I think
you are. Thanks for describing the line. I understand now.

IRLP script that connects to experimental nodes.

"exp${1:${PRELEN}}"
bash code to parse the node to connect from DTMF code sent. You
send DTMF
PS0016, and this drops the "PS" part and creates "exp0016".. You
just make
this "exp0016", but I tend to write scripts to do more than one
node. So I
got carried away.

notimeout
The notimeout option is for the IRLP script to disable the idle COS
timeout. That way your node does not disconnect because nobody is
talking
locally. Reference the unofficial IRLP manual in the Yahoo files
folder.
for more details.

&
The "&" is not required, but sometimes is a good idea. It causes the
command to run in the background, and releases custom_decode to
continue and
exit.

I should have thought about question. I have many custom decodes and
that where they are! Could you comment last line for me (not exit 1)?
I'll get to it after dinner.
Thanks, Don

Where does this script reside? I'll give it a try. Using Fedora
