Re: Rebuilt node, audio not going out STN4437

This makes a lot of sense. That tells me that my firewall is overwriting the inbound NAT with a new session.Let me dig in and I'll have you test again when I fix it. Thanks!

Yes you have a messed up router. Here is how I can tell.

From My node, I telnet to to yours on port 15425

repeater@stn4733:~/$ telnet stn4437.ip.irlp.net 15425
Trying 69.112.12.120...
Connected to stn4437.ip.irlp.net.
Escape character is '^]'.
stn4437 - n2wns : Welcome 172.16.1.1

You are recording my IP address as 172.16.1.1, which is wrong. My IP is actually 44.48.26.6.

172.16.1.1 is probably the IP address of your router, it should not be changing the inbound address, it should show my address. So something is wrong with your router, or its configuration. If your node is running Debian, IRLP VPN would fix this as well.

So I've dug into the issue a little deeper. if I, meaning on the RF side of MY node, initiate a call out, it will connect and I can hear myself on the remote node yet, I can't hear the remote node, no keyups or anything. If the same remote node connects to me, I can hear the remote node yet, the remote node CANT hear me. Now this traffic you would think would fall under the allow any out firewall policy. I'm thinking I have something else going on here.

Answer Dave....the recieving station hears nothing at all yet 4437 hears the transmitting station.

The two different scenarios above, lead down entirely different paths down the troubleshooting tree.

Re: Multiple Echolink Sessions

k9dc
 

Technically possible yes. But not allowed by echolink management. EchoIRLP uses the same software (theBridge) run by echolink conferences, which they charge a recurring fee to operate. As long as you limit the connections to 2, they allow EchoIRLP to exist. Those two consist of the connection back to your local IRLP node, and the second is one outside connection.

Everything comes back clean. Firewall included. I think it's an issue with the return traffic as I connected to 9050 this morning, it showed me connected yet I heard no traffic even thought I saw activity on his supermon.

Rebuilt node, audio not going out STN4437

IRLP HELP

Paul Tueller
 

I have been using IRLP for over 10 years. However, now I am out of the IRLP business. My older Micro Node is not working and just recently my NanoNode stopped working. It apparently transmits but does not receive. Question - what is the best way for me to get back in the IRLP world? I have tried to contact Mark Guibord but seems to be out of business and not available to give any help. I would very much like to get back to using IRLP. What radio can I buy to get started again and can I use the frequencies that I had for my Micro Node or my Nano Node? How do I find out about that? Is there anyone anywhere that could repair my Micro Node or Nano node? I have been using the Nano Node when traveling and the Micro Node at my home station. Any help would be appreciated

Re: crontab resets

k9dc
 

You are exactly correct. It is actually used to ADD things to repeater’s crontab. So make the change in custom.crons, then execute an ‘update’ command to activate it.

I'm a newbie at this so I have to ask, does the contents of custom.crons get updated in the repeater crontab as a result of the update_files_cron script that runs (in my case) at 3:00 AM? It sure looks like it does. If so, when you want to update the repeater crontab should you put the changes in custom.crons rather than directly in the repeater crontab?
