Configuration, RRC 1258 / Control RRC Showing as Radio RRC
« on: 2017-08-12, 01:25:00 »
After doing a reset, a control RRC is now showing as a radio RRC. This is the opposite to what is
mentioned on http://www.remoterig.com/wp/?page_id=1695 so I tried to use the command
http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx/setrrcdevice?type=control instead, but it didn't work.

Any advice?

Update: I tried upgrading to 2.91 from 2.87, but it didn't solve the problem

Configuration, RRC 1258 / CW Delay Settings and Winkeyer
« on: 2017-06-10, 19:53:14 »
Are the two delay settings under CW also carried over to the Winkeyer emulation?

Configuration, RRC 1258 / Mode-0 for COM ports not available
« on: 2017-03-19, 01:20:36 »
I noticed that mode-0 (transparent mode) is not available for either COM port per the manual.
Is this a change? Any reason for it to go away?

One of our users upgraded to 2.90 and his Winkey emulation stopped working. Win-Test gave the error
message that Winkey (in his case COM8) was not recognized. Downgrading to 2.87 fixed the problem.

He is using Windows 7. I found the following in a long thread:
http://www.remoterig.com/forum/index.php?topic=4558.msg21340#msg21340
but it seems to indicate that this is a specific Windows 10 problem.

General discussion forum / is 2.87 really a beta?
« on: 2015-10-06, 13:22:05 »
The file name for 2.87 indicates that it is a beta. Is this a release, or still a beta?

There is the following comment on 2.86:

"Important! If you are upgrading a radio RRC then all control RRCs used to connect to it also must be upgraded to 2.86!"

I am having problems with the Micro client on a couple of existing systems running 2.83 and wanted to upgrade them if this
would help. The problem is that I have 14 users with various firmware versions on the control side. If this applies only to
2.86 and not to 2.87, then I will upgrade the radio RRC's to 2.87, otherwise I need to work out a plan first.

General / Rig no longer turns off on new version
« on: 2015-08-04, 22:44:50 »
The K3 no longer turns off when disconnecting using the new SIP client, even if the
program is killed.

General discussion forum / Dayton RemoteRig Questions
« on: 2015-05-06, 13:38:58 »
Microbit will not be attending Dayton. If anyone has a question, you are welcome see me and I will do my
best to answer your questions. The RemoteRig hardware will be sold at the HRO booth.

I will be working about half the time at the ARRL Expo on the DARC booth, the other half of the time
wandering around. I can be reached for a week at my U.S. cell number 424-288-9171 (starting May 10th).

Configuration, RRC 1258 / Parameters set from Control RRC
« on: 2015-01-02, 18:48:00 »
Hi guys,

One of the multi-user groups I am a a member of has a discussion going on which parameters can
be set at the control RRC side and which ones must be at the radio RRC side, or both. I am not sure
myself as to the status using current firmware. I know that both the Micro and Nano software override
the radio RRC side, but as far as I can remember, this does not (yet?) apply to the RRC itself.

Could you please list the parameters that must be set per side, or can be overridden by the control RRC?

Sorry for the off topic........

For my Florida QTH, I am looking for a used K3/0 (large version, I believe it is too soon for a used mini).

If you replaced your K3/0 with a K3/0 mini, or are not using your K3/0, I may be interested in purchasing it.
This can be with or without a control RRC, but I am looking for an RRC as well.

I can take delivery in Florida after December 1st, before then in Europe.

Please contact me off list at dj0qn (at) darc.de.

General discussion forum / Dual Channel Audio in all RRC's?
« on: 2014-08-12, 17:59:09 »
I am a bit confused on which RRC's have dual-channel audio (dual RX) support. I understood that all
RRC's starting with hardware version 5 would have this included moving forward. The name was changed
from "RRC-1258MkII" to "RRC-1258MkIIs" to denote this new function. See: http://www.remoterig.com/wp/?page_id=1395

Now my group has been ordering some new RRC's with the plan to migrate to a dual RX K3 from our TS-480.
I was surprised that the RRC's are not marked "RRC-1258MkIIs", but instead have the old "RRC-1258MkII" on
them instead, indicating a single-channel audio version. However, the box and sticker on the bottom have
"MkIIs" on them (hardware v7).

Is this a mistake on the RRC front markings, or are there different versions floating around? I hope my original
assumption was correct that all starting v5 are dual RX, otherwise we bought some potentially useless RRC's.

I resolve a number of RemoteRig problems for users every week, but recently I had two unusual problems in Germany and Spain
that turned out to be a new issue that will likely come-up more and more often. I therefore want to warn the user community
about how to recognize this problem and how to possibly solve it.

The effect of the problem is that a previously perfectly working setup just stops working for no apparent reason. In general,
a working system that stops working is not due to a RRC defect, but due to a change somewhere in the environment (e.g.
router, loose cable, etc.)

This new problem is caused by the migration of internet providers from IPv4 to IPv6. The provider changes the IPv4 connection
to the internet to a new type of "encapsulated" link that shares a single external IP number with its users. This means that the
users no longer have an external IP number on the internet that can be used to reach devices within the users' networks using
port forwards (called "double NAT"). The RRC is therefore all of a sudden no longer reachable and the system goes down.

How to recognize the problem: you need to go into your router and see what IP number the router has received from the provider.
This is under a menu called "status", "WAN" or similar. Then go into your radio RRC's status page (or use a browser to go to
http://www.whatismyip.com/) and see if the external IP numbers match or not. If they do not match, then your provider made this
change. If they do match, your problem is elsewhere in your hardware or network.

How to fix the problem: there is no real fix as such. You need to contact your provider and see if they can give you a true external IP
number as you used to have. If they can not do this or are unwilling to do this, then you will need to change your internet provider.
As an alternative, you can setup a VPN, but this is beyond the scope of this posting.

General discussion / PC Client Running Under VM Under Mac
« on: 2014-07-24, 16:28:58 »
I received an e-mail from an OM that I have been trying to help get his remote station working.
I just found out that he is trying to run the PC Client in a VM using VMWare on the Mac. He says
that everything appears to work, but he can't hear any audio.

Has anyone got this configuration working ok? Is is a configuration issue, or is this a technical
problem that can not be solved?
