Hi Marcel,

I see that no one has answered you till now. I have spent the last few weeks
in the hospital, so I am behind answering my mails and forum postings.

The solution is to buy a small adapter, I think it is called "remote power-on relay",
from your Acom dealer. Acom will know what it is when they are asked, since your
dealer probably doesn't know. It costs around 100 Euro, and will allow full on and
off of the 2000a. You need to leave the main power switch on, but all that does is
to provide power to the RCU.

I am trying to attach a photo, but I am not sure if it will work.

Hi Robert,

No problem, you will find instructions how to do so in the manual on
pages 61 & 62.

That doesn't make sense.....the router would not assign IP numbers unless
the boxes were changed to DHCP. I am not sure what you think you are
seeing DHCP if was not changed.

If you didn't change them to DHCP yet, please do so now using the Setup
Manager and the USB cable. Then check the router for the assigned IP
numbers and connect like George said using the one assigned.

Mike, I believe the boxes should factory default to DHCP, since this seems
to cause a lot of problems for people that are not familiar with networks.

I just received a Lantronix UDS2100 (dual serial port) for a new remote location:

I ordered it from the U.S., since it does not appear to be available in Europe yet. Often
you can find an older device for sale on Ebay, but there seems to be a gap at present
in this part of the world.

I haven't installed it yet, we are waiting for Spring to complete antenna work and make
the installation.

Did you change your SIP port number on both ends? Port 5060 is usually blocked on UMTS.

I have tested both O2 and Telekom (T-Mobile), and both do not work with RemoteRig.
They seem to block the audio, even after changing the port number.

P.S.: We can speak by phone if you have any questions

Thanks again for fixing this, Mike. Mode B now works the way I am
used to.

For everyone else to test (before upgrading), just send "CQ DE" in mode B.
If like me, you will send "CQ DI" most of the time. You kind of get used to
letting go quicker to send the E instead of the I, but that was a painful
work-around. I am happy that we were able to resolve this problem with
excellent teamwork.

I suggest first that you use the USB cable and the Setup Manager. You can see if your
RRC is still "alive", update the firmware and check what the real IP number is. It also will
start your browser and go to the correct address if you want.

I also suggest that set the RRC to DHCP to pull an IP address from your network, assuming
your network is done that way. If you want a fixed IP number, it is more reliable to put the
MAC address in your router's NAT settings for fixed IP, since at least then your router will
know about it and you can easier do port forwards or place it into the DMZ.

If the RRC is set to DHCP, it will pick this address up from the router and will NOT
display this in setup window under the Setup Manager. It will ALWAYS display the
fixed IP number that was entered there before.

To get the current IP number, click on the Net Info tab and then call it up.

Hi Tom,

Yes, no problem.....just read the manual, pages 61 & 62.

« on: 2011-01-12, 22:30:34 »
Hi Andy,

Each device needs to be addressed using a different port. For example,
the PC with and the RemoteRig with You need to enter these in your router
accordingly to point to the correct internal IP number, e.g. port 1234 to, port 5678 to, etc. This way, an unlimited
number of devices can be addressed using the single external IP address.

You actually should always change the RemoteRig to a different port number,
because your router likely already uses port 80.

I hope this helps.

Note that Difona now is offering the RC-480KIT for 359 Euros from DL, including V.A.T.:  (German)  (English)

I just spoke to Difona....the heads finally arrived and are NOW in stock. First come,
first serve!

Hi Mike,

The problem is not that something new is needed, but the existing modes
add an extra dit. I know that Thomas DL7AV and Simon DJ4MZ have both
had issues, so maybe they can help you fix the problem. I haven't tried
CW yet with the newest firmware, maybe it has been fixed. Perhaps
Thomas and Simon can give their inputs after updating their firmware.

Has there been any further progress on fixing this problem with the
keyer? It makes the internal keyer pretty much useless until this problem
has been solved.

I arrived home in Munich this past weekend, and have been trying out the new
profiles feature with the two sites I currently am using.

It appears to work very well and I have had no problems at all. Just what was
needed! Thanks again!

No, that is what it is set to now and doesn't make a difference.
