Which port is used for resolving my IRLP node's hostname?

Are you asking how does the node look up its own hostname? Normally it looks in the file /etc/hosts (looking for localhost 127.0.0.1), no network activity is used.

Or are you asking how can you (Ken) can look it up from somewhere else on the Internet? That uses standard DNS, UDP 53

host stn3000.ip.irlp.net

I'm moving my IRLP node behind an AREDN mesh router (know about AREDN?) and the troubleshooting script reports it can't resolve my hostname (which is stn300). In front of the router, it resolves fine so I was figuring I needed to open a port I hadn't already opened. Now I'm thinking I might just set up an DMZ and that should take care of that

You could add a line in the /etc/hosts file to handle that.

127.0.0.1 stn300

Using a reasonably normal router, (all outbound allowed, replies and selected inbound filtered/forwarding rules) DNS should work with nothing special set up.

Hi Ken,

Yes, this sounds like some type of a NAT / port forwarding issue.

Are you able to perform DNS queries from the HamVoIP RPi. Something like:

wget -O- -q http://myip.hamvoip.org

....That should return you public IP address.

Run the "hostname" command and make sure it matches what you have in the hosts file.

Yup. even present in /etc/hostname

As I posted earlier, I can take this exact Pi node - unchanged - and connect it to my internet router's LAN and everything is great. No errors, I can connect, etc. BUT.....

As soon as I move it to the AREDN router's LAN, I start seeing these errors and can't connect. And again, YES/. I have the inbound ports properly forwarded to the node's IP on the AREDN router's LAN.

for those unsure about the AREDN router versus my internet router, this should explain

Maybe double nat’d ??? 

Are both routers on the same ‘internet connection ‘ or are you moving between 2 different units ?

Did you see the link I posted?

If I plug the Pi node into one of the home router's LAN ports, all is good. If I plug the Pi node into one of the  AREDN router's LAN ports, that's when I start having problems

As as explained at my cite:

----------------------------------------------------------

Once you have connected your node [the MicroTik hAP Lite] to your home router, Internet access will be available to the node itself as well as to any of the devices connected to the node’s LAN network.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I can confirm full internet access from those ports if I connect my laptop to one (DHCP of course)

For you networking gurus, the hAP Lite is configured with 2 VLANS (WAN port is VLAN1 and the other ports are VLAN2), which are bridged together by default

You might have to use IRLP VPN, then open ports and/ or forwarding doesn’t matter. It’s free.

If I plug the Pi node into one of the home router's LAN ports, all is good. If I plug the Pi node into one of the  AREDN router's LAN ports, that's when I start having problems

As as explained at my cite:

----------------------------------------------------------

Once you have connected your node [the MicroTik hAP Lite] to your home router, Internet access will be available to the node itself as well as to any of the devices connected to the node’s LAN network.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I can confirm full internet access from those ports if I connect my laptop to one (DHCP of course)

Well, as I only want to connect to one particular reflector, seems a bit overkill <g>

Not sure what that has to do with anything. IRLP can only connect to one place at a time anyway.

But that is all I do too. In fact my VHF and UHF repeaters are located at the same site and always connected to each other across the same reflector. Sharing an AT&T cellular modem to the Internet, each with its own IRLP VPN. AT&T has a cell site on the same tower, so the cell signal is pretty decent.

IRLP VPN simply provides a dedicated public address to your node behind nearly anything for an Internet connection. The IP address space was provided for us, at no charge, by Amateur Radio Digital Communications (ARDC), the ampr.org folks.

If you are having issues with all the tests passing or getting port forwarding to work, it is an option that is available. There are roughly 250 IRLP repeaters using the service today.

Gotcha

I'll search the list for info on the VPN. If nothing else, might be faster than chasing this issue down <G>

Thanks
