Re-post (since the group seems to be emailing me again)

Hello to all,

It's been a while since I have posted here. One of my scripts doesn't work and I know the "WHY" but I'm at a loss as to "HOW" to fix it.

When my node connects to the exp reflector 0016 to listen to Amateur Radio Newsline it creates the "$LOCAL/active" file containing exp0016 as it should. When the news is finished it disconnects you, again... as it should but it doesn't remove the "$LOCAL/active" file so, my I script doesn't know 0016 has disconnected.

Any ideas? Is this a bug/feature of experimental reflectors?

A temporary fix is to time the news cast (as it rarely runs over 20 minutes) so I could set a timer to stop the script at 22 minutes or so, but I'd really rather get to the bottom of this issue.

Thanks All

OK, that is good news. Sorry, I am still trying to find where to go to get the files, install scripts, etc to do it.

Thanks

Would someone please point out again where the latest Echo files are available for Buster?? I assume this fixes the no echo announcements on connect and disconnect??

I’ve had no issues at all with the groups io service, but I do use a gmail address for all this stuff. I haven’t used anything yahoo for several years now.

The group itself is great! A wonderful resource.

Re: $LOCAL/active

David McAnally
 

It seems to work. Reviewing the "irlpd" code, anything sent from a connected experimental (exp) node to port 15425 causes the "end" script to be executed. Doesn't even need to be "disconnect".

Just a quick follow-up. Skip's newsline experimental reflector/node 0018 does send a "disconnect" to IRLP nodes on the IRLP control port. If you're having issues with it disconnecting, or failing to clean up $LOCAL files, this may be an issue with your specific node.  When I connect to exp0018, it disconnects at the end of the news playback just like any node would disconnect.

TCP channel to send/receive info.

So your node will continue to be "connected" there until you issue the
"end" command on your end, either by DTMF, by being "blocked", or by
timeout or some other timer.

Re: Echo/IRLP

Klaus Rung
 

Yes, that is what I found out when I tried to make a new node a few months ago, the echoirlp installed but the audio announcements were not there any longer. I think Dave Cameron has a fix for that now so it is doable but all the other scripts people have written are also broken so it is a big pain to upgrade off of deb 7 where everything works very well still. I don't think I will move until the nodes stop working and I am forced to upgrade.

Did you find anything bad happening inside WX4E Node?

Re: 3rd try - Please dont use the list to test

David Cameron - IRLP
 

If there was a widespread problem, more people would be reporting it. There are 4110 members on this list. Each test so far has generated about 12 emails - do the math.

Please if you are having issues receiving mail, check with your ISP first. Sending numerous tests is just a waste of bandwidth and causes a number of complaints (11 and growing).
