Hi Mike,

Of course both sides are set to "10", but there is indeed a connect button on the status page.

I will e-mail you my settings directly.

General discussion forum / YaesuTwin Install Problem
« on: 2011-05-31, 19:05:27 »
I finally got my YaesuTwin installed at the remote location, but the connect does not work.

When I hit the connect button on the status page (the power switch has no effect), then
the remote FT-2000 turns on for about 2 seconds, then switches off again. I have a camera
mounted there and can control how the remote FT-2000 responds.

I have double and triple checked my settings, but everything appears ok. I have installed several
RRC's by now and pretty much know most things. I also moved this new (Yaesu) RRC into the
DMZ for a short test, with the same result. So it is not a network port issue.

I am using firmware 2.39 on both ends. I have changed and forwarded all ports to be different
than the other RRC that is installed at the station (in the DMZ). I also killed my other RRC for
a minute to make sure there was no "interference" issue I overlooked.

Since the manual does not cover operation of the YaesuTwin (only installation), I am assuming
there is nothing significantly different from the RRC-1258.

Maybe someone has a clue what is wrong.

Hi Walt,

I suggest that we speak by phone when you are home and available. I may be able to figure your problem
out that way. I am sure it is something simple.

I think you are looking in the wrong place about blocked ports, since I have not seen that problem
elsewhere and have a lot of experience. Port 80 is NEVER blocked, because that is the port used
for web browsing. If it were blocked, you would not be able to browse the internet (except for SSL pages).
Your port 80 problem was caused by a port conflict: your router uses port 80 for config and your RRC was
also set to port 80.

Let me know when you are available directly at dj0qn (at) for a phone or Skype call.

Hi Walt,

Greetings from Dayton.

That is new information.....your work PC can access your router, but your laptop does not. I therefore
do NOT believe the problem is port blocking, but something in your laptop. The default port for your
router config (over browser) is port 80, which no one will block. Otherwise, no web page could be used!

The is fine with the DMZ, actually easier as port forwarding.

So now you really need to focus on your laptop as being the culprit. Can you access normal web pages
from these hot spots, but not your router config page? If so, then there appears to be a problem
probably accessing that particular IP number for some reason. Check to make sure that you have the
correct DynDNS address entered as a starter. Compare the way the work PC is requesting the page
from the way the loptop is. Once you have checked that out, we can move from there.

Time to get ready for breakfast and the convention  ;)

Hi Walt,

That brings us back to point one on my very first posting; first check again
in the router to make sure everything is really forwarded. I bet it works now.

I will be looking forward to your report.

Tomorrow is travel day to Dayton, so I will not be around much the next few

Hi Walt,

Logging onto DynDNS will not automatically change the IP address. There is a link that
must be clicked to do so. I assume you must have clicked on that link by accident.

Even so, the remote unit would have changed it back during the next planned DynDNS
update in your radio RRC, so you would have only to wait a few minutes to get back in
(assuming you didn't change it to a longer update delay).

Again, please connect up from a neighbor or someone else with a "normal" broadband
connection. I bet that your problem will still be apparent, so that will give you an
opportunity to find the problem easier.

Hi Walt,

I still find it hard to believe that these ports are blocked by public WiFi. I have never experienced
any problems, and I have connected back from 20+ countries, including the U.S. many times.

The problem with port 80 was probably not a block, but a port conflict. Your router most likely is
already using port 80 for configuration. It is therefore always a must to forward the HTTP port.

I also recommend always to change the SIP port, because many routers have a VoIP function built-in
(especially in Europe). You may find a conflict with port 5060 on a router where you are visiting, if
not at home.

I am not sure if I understand what you mean about the library changing your DynDNS address. The user
side does not use DynDNS, only the radio side. This is an automatic process that is transparent to the
user, except for a few minutes wait until it updates if you happen to be using it at the time the address
is changed by the ISP. The user needs to enter the DynDNS address (SIP contact) and correct port (SIP port)
on the user side, and the box will find the radio itself. The IP address where you are located at the time is irrelevant.

You didn't mention if you were using an RRC 1258 box, or the RRC PC Client. If you are using the box, I am wondering
how you are connecting its ethernet port up to the WiFi. There are methods, e.g. routers, bridges and PC internet
sharing, but I am curious how you are doing this if you are indeed using the box.

I am not sure where you are, since you didn't ID. If you can read German,
this may or not be what you are looking for:

Hi Walt,

A couple of inputs from my side:

- Make sure that the ports are correctly forwarded in your router. I have seen problems
caused by people doing this incorrectly or even forgetting to do so. First test your system
from a trusted location, such as from a friend's or neighbor's house.

- If indeed these ports are blocked, then try changing them to a standard port that is usually
not blocked, e.g. where standard software use these ports. Lists can be Googled. I have
personally not experienced this problem in public hotspots, but have within company networks.

- An easy workaround would be to set-up a VPN. Many routers support VPN connections and
even include clients to install to make the VPN connection. Then you are within your network and
are "immune" to port blocks, using your internal IP numbers.

Hi David,

I use a 23  db gain patch panel and the Bullet screws directly onto the back. Here is the description:

Thanks, Mike, that would be better than nothing  ;)

I never expected the box with its limitations to do the actual streaming, but
some method of accessing a stream over IP for rebroadcast would be great.

I also have the same request. We have two RemoteRig (TS-480) installations
with nine users each, they would like the possibility to listen in.

In one of the locations, there is a PC running 24/7. We installed a normal audio
splitter cable and ran the second line to the PC's sound card input. We found
that using Teamspeak was better than Skype, since it is a permanent "room"
where you can log-on and listen.

The second location is PC-less, using only serial port forwarding (Lantronix). There
we still need a solution, which we would also use at the first location if possible.

We use the Ubiquiti Bullets a lot in Bavaria and Austria to connect systems
up to 50km apart. I bought a set to link my station and QTH, also 2 km apart. I wanted to make sure that
the link works in any weather and this solution is great and not expensive.

Correct, Simon, I just made the assumption that he was now using the COM2
port on the control RRC and wanted to use the USB port instead.

Hi Dave,

Yes, it works great. All you have to do is:

1) Install the Setup Manager, so that you have the driver installed
2) Check under Windows which serial port number was assigned
3) change the menu setting "Use USB Com Port as COM2" to yes
4) plug-in your USB cable and change your program to use that serial port

Note that there were some bugs in the first version, but it appears to be stable now.
