Dave,

That is no problem. No need to install anything as such, since Windows will automatically assign different virtual port numbers for additional devices.

However, you need to make sure that the two RRC's are using unique port numbers. That is the only way you will be able to get them to work at the same time.

Configuration, RRC 1258 / Re: CAT control on Remote side
« on: 2020-05-03, 17:27:02 »
Denny,

I have posted my CAT checklist on this forum before, but here it is again:

CAT Checklist for K3 Twin
----------------------------------
Note first that in a "Twin" configuration, COM2 is used to "tie" the two ends together and carries the CAT data. In order to access CAT, you need to get to COM2 without touching it. The easiest method is to duplicate COM2 over COM1 using a function in the RRC as follows:

- Change both RRC's COM1 to mode-7. Note that the baud rate does not have to be identical with COM2 to fit a lower bandwidth or software requirement.

- If using a "real" serial cable:
     - connect a straight through serial cable between the control RRC's COM1 and the PC. If using a USB to serial converter cable, make sure it is using an FTDI chipset.
     - note that if you also use the radio RRC's COM1, the pinout is not the standard straight-through serial port. Use the pinout description in the RemoteRig manual, or just try a null-modem cable which usually works (may need a gender changer).
     - the  serial setting for COM1 "Use USB Com Port as COM1" must be set to NO

- If using USB:
     - make sure that first Microbit Setup Manager is installed first on the control PC to get the drivers.
     - Then change the serial settings for COM1 to change "Use USB Com Port as COM1" to YES
     - connect the USB cable between the RRC and computer and wait for the drivers to finish installing
     - go to the Windows Device Manager and look at which virtual serial port was assigned to COM1 and use that for your software, taking the correct baud rate into account.

Note also that you can pull CAT data in parallel off of the radio RRC to use a PC on that end, or to sync with a remote device (amplifier, SteppIR, etc.)

That is correct.

My only guess is the baud rates don't match, otherwise Mike or someone may have a better idea.

I meant the status page on the control RRC, which you can look at.

Probably something changed in the network environment. It is highly unlikely that there is something wrong
with the RemoteRig RRC's. Everyone always comes here assuming it is a RemoteRig problem, but it rarely is.

Was anything changed by the ISP on the radio side that you are aware of?

Did you reboot the routers on both sides?

The only way would be to use an IP power switch, such as from Wemo.

However, I would try to solve the cause of the problem, rather than solving it with a work-around.

I would say that something in your network is blocking this. What does your RRC's status page say
after the problem occurs? What UDP ports are you using? Is SIP ALG turned on in one of the routers?

Check to make sure that the serial end of the cable is using pins 7&8 instead of 2&3, which are the
standard pins. The Expert uses 7&8 for CAT, because 2&3 are reserved for a SteppIR controller.

Hi Bruce,

It is extremely rare that an RRC fails. Usually it is a power supply, bad cable or something else.

If a system stopped working, it is a 99% probability that something in the environment changed
that has caused the problem, i.e. router, switch, etc.

Since he sees the web menu of the RRC, that is proof that the RRC is not the culprit. How is he
accessing it? Is he accessing it with the RRC's network, or outside? If outside, is he using the
dynamic DNS address, or the public IP number? Is your RRC using that number in your "SIP
Contact" field?

Configuration, RRC 1258 / Re: 2 x K3/100 - no PTT

Carsten,

The PTT is done in hardware through the red strappings in both RRC's. You need to check to
make sure that all are making contact and the layout matchs the type of microphone used.

Chip,

I have a networking checklist that walks you through the process of setting up RemoteRig. This is
generic and not rig specific, because that is well documented in their manual or the Elecraft one.

If interested, drop me a mail at dj0qn (at) darc (dot) de and I will send it to you.

Carsten,

ich verstehe dein Englisch leider nicht, kannst du bitte die Frage in Deutsch wieder stellen?
Sonst kannst du mich direkt kontaktieren: dj0qn (at) darc (dot) de.

Dave,

Honestly, at 9600 baud, there should never be a connection problem using normal serial cables. I
have been using Lantronix serial servers for about 10 years and never once experienced a single
glich, nor have our users.

My suspicion is there is a setting somewhere in your Zetron box that needs to be tweaked. I have
had to do some tweaking on the Lantronix devices at the beginning for some things to work
properly, so maybe that is the problem. I do not believe that there is a problem with RemoteRig.

You should have used my networking checklist, which explains everything. If you don't have
it, drop me a short mail at dj0qn (at) darc (dot) de and I will send it to you.

That is a coincidence. Port 80 is for the web page of the RRC and has no effect on the stream that
uses the UDP ports. Make sure that you change port 80 to something else and password protect it
to prevent someone from getting in.

Glad you fixed it. Yes, either you had to change the port forward in the router to the RRC's
new IP address, or change the RRC's IP address to what it had under the old connection.
Either way works just fine.
