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.

I have tried "Auto", "Auto, prefer 10 Mbit", and "100FDX'.

Should I switch to half duplex? Would that make sense?

Hi Uwe,

I have never been able to completely solve the problem. It appears that the RRC
is very sensitive to anything else in the network that generates a lot of traffic, so
the best method is to make sure everything is off when using RemoteRig.

I found the main problem on the station side, which only has 1Mb upload: I have
two IP cameras for monitoring. When I turn them off, most noise is gone. On the
remote side, I need to make sure nothing is generating traffic, including web browsers(!).

We are in the process of making a large installation for several users, and early tests show
the same problem, especially short interruptions every minute or two. It will be difficult to
resolve this, since it is located on a remote mountaintop, but we will try. I suspect also a
camera located there, which is on a different subnet. I am not sure how everything is connected,
since I don't have control over that network. It will be a challenge, I'm afraid.

Hi Paul,

What you are describing is what I mentioned: ethernet is very "noisy", generating lots
of birdies and other RF garbage everywhere. It comes through the switch into the
cables and radiates all over the place. It has nothing to do with galvanic issues.
So therefore replacing an ethernet infrastructure with wireless in the shack is not
a bad idea in this regard.

Mitch DJ0QN / K7DX (portable /W6)

That's a good question, Paul. I am not really sure, since this device only runs
in bridge mode, as far as I can tell. Other devices can be switched between
bridge and router mode. You could install another (larger) wireless router on
the other end as a solution.

My personal opinion is that you are looking for a solution without a problem. I
have not seen that kind of problem with ethernet before. It is however very
common to have ethernet birdies caused by a network, which that would eliminate.
I have also seen devices blown-up by lightning strikes that came over the
ethernet cables.

Mitch DJ0QN / K7DX (still on vacation, now in W6)

The best portable solution that I have found is the Netgear WNCE2001:

This is very small and light weight, even running off of the computer's USB port.

That is GREAT news, Jan! Thanks to you and the developers on moving so
quickly on this request.

I am waiting to board my plane for a long vacation, so testing from my side
will have till wait until January. I am sure the others will enjoy the new
profile feature. I will need this feature as soon as I return to install eight

I wish you and the RemoteRig team happy holidays and a successful 2011!

  • Windows driver to access the two COM ports at the remote side without having to connect them via two serial cables on the control side

Simon, you can buy the PC Client and get this functionality now ;-)

I agree, the keyer drives me crazy with the extra dit. I can't believe that this would be that hard to fix.

That is great news, Jan! That will make things much easier for us to
implement multiple RemoteRig installations. I will begin in January with
eight users on one system, some of use already use other installations.

P.S.: the RemoteRig software AND hardware are great!
