Right here we go. I have bought a node system from a friend who used to have it working fine from his home QTH. I now have a new system installed Cent OS 4.4.

So now I have got my Callsign for the Node what do I need to do next. How do I get or install the IRLP software. I did ask on the IRLP help email but was told the software and paperwork is shipped with the IRLP board. Well it was but that was for Fedora Core3 and now I have a new Hard drive with Cent OS 4.4 installed sitting and waiting. I am just about ready to throw it all in the bin. Please help the last IRLP Group was a dead one. This one looks like ppl are helping PPL. I have no hair left and there is some tears comming....he he....
There's a few pages on the IRLP site that are only in the documentation, no links and no Google to them. Since I'm not 100% sure how "off the grid" Dave wants those pages I won't port them to the group :) Anyways, just having CentOS 4.4 won't help you much, the easiest way is to either use that FC3 disk you have (which there is nothing wrong with BTW, some even _have_ to run on FC3 rather then CentOS due to compatibility issues) or grab a new CentOS 4.7 customized for IRLP ISO from the site. Do you have a backup of the old node? They really rather that you transfer the existing node to a new owner rather then deploy a new node#.

Most FTP programs in Linux also support SFTP/SCP like gFTP. Konqueror I believe supports it as well (the KDE version of Explorer)

correctly etc etc.
I cannot thank you enough for this bit of information you wrote here.
I started working on my crons about one year ago. After working on it
for a week they still would not work, So I gave up, and moved on to
other things.

Recently getting my crons to work came back into priority and, again,
I found myself confronted with the same problems as before. After
working on them for about 9 hours straight, I came across your post.
Adding that line to the top of the scripts I want to run solved the

Yes. It is called Midnight Commander or 'mc' Similar to the old DOS Norton Commander. Pretty cool actually, among other things it allows you to drill in to compressed archives without uncompressing them.

Re: Multiple nodes one router

k9dc
 

Only if you have multiple public IP addresses and your router supports multiple IP addresses on the outside interface. Normally this will require a Cisco IOS based router or some other commercial class router on your Internet connection. Even an IOS router can only do this if statically addressed with multiple IPs (no DHCP to the SP). The normal residential routers (Linksys, Netgear, D-link etc) will not do this. Every IRLP node MUST be on a unique public IP address.

The short answer for most of us, is no.

Re: WinSCP

James Weber <wd0bqm@...>
 

If you use the KDE Desktop, use "fish" in Konqueror (file manager). It allows
you to access another computer's files using SSH. The remote computer needs
to be running the SSH daemon, but the remainder of the protocol uses standard
commandline tools.

You can use the fish kioslave like this:
fish://hostname or fish://username@hostname or, fish://hostname:portnumber.
Hostname can be IP.

For the *regular* nodes and reflectors (not the experimental ones), I
just have it move the default wav files, and "touch" blank files in
their place, and put them back when it's done... I use that for "stealth
connections" when I get tired of hearing the greetings and the "node
number blah blah blah blah"... You might could do something similar for
the experimental nodes, I don't know...
