That answer has been posted on the forum several times.

Basically, just connect the sound card's output directly to the control RRC's MIC/AUX connector.
Easiest to use an old ethernet cable and cut-off one end. The sound card's input should be taken
directly off of the control RRC's SPK connector. Use CAT for PTT.

You need to only use CAT. Here is a checklist for the TS-480:

CAT CHECKLIST
---------------------
IMPORTANT: In both scenarios, you MUST first install a standard serial cable between the TS-480 body and COM2 of the radio RRC!

USING A STANDARD SERIAL CABLE
============================
1) Change the CAT rate on the TS-480 to 4800 baud (menu 56). This rate keeps traffic over the internet to a minimum and faster is not necessary for CAT.

2) Change the COM2 serial settings of the radio-RRC to mode-4, 4800 baud, data bits 8, stop bits 1 and submit/apply changes.

3) Change the COM2 serial settings of the control-RRC to mode-4, 4800 baud, data bits 8, stop bits 1 and submit/apply changes.

4) Plug a serial cable in between your PC and the control-RRC COM2

5) Set your software to use the correct COM port on your PC at 4800-8-1-N

USING A USB CABLE
=================
1) Change the CAT rate on the TS-480 to 4800 baud (menu 56). This rate keeps traffic over the internet to a minimum and faster is not necessary for CAT.

2) Change the COM2 serial settings of the radio-RRC to mode-4, 4800 baud, data bits 8, stop bits 1 and submit/apply changes.

3) Install the Microbit Setup Manager if you already haven't. You don't need the problem for this, but this installs the correct drivers on your PC.

4) Change the COM2 serial settings of the control-RRC to mode-4, 4800 baud, data bits 8, stop bits 1, "use USB Com Port as COM2" to "Yes" and submit/apply changes.

5) Plug a USB cable between your PC and control-RRC. Make sure you do NOT do his before step 3 above!

6) Find out the correct port in your Windows Device Manager to use by looking for the "Microbit RRC Virtual COM Port (COM2)"

7) Set your software to use the this COM port on your PC at 4800-8-1-N.

This is also covered in my networking checklist that I send upon request, but to summarize:

1) Change the web port (advanced settings) to another number from 80
2) Add a web password for security (IP settings)
3) Forward this port in the router (TCP)
4) Access it using a browser and the RRC's external address followed by a colon and the port number.
For example, if you are using the dynamic DNS system from RemoteRig, it would look something
like hfd3dqw6.ddns.remoterig.com:1234 where 1234 is the new port number. Otherwise replace
hfd3dqw6.ddns.remoterig.com with the SIP contact that you normally use.

Note that a good router will block this from working within the radio RRC's network. You need to use its
internal IP address instead of the DDNS address there in that case.

Configuration, RRC 1258 / Re: problems with the set up
« on: 2019-04-02, 19:36:40 »
Ferdinando,

I have a networking checklist that I can send you if you want that walks you through the setup process.
If you want it, drop me a short mail to dj0qn (at) darc.de and I will send it to you.

Jorge,

I was referring to the schematic for the pinout to allow you to make a cable. Not literally that
specific cable. yOu asked which connections you need and will find them there.

Jorge,

I think you want to use your computer for FT8. If so, you should best bypass the K3 and go
directly into the RRC AUX/MIC jack. You can try going through your K3, but I can't say if it
will work or not, even a K3/0 causes problems.

You can best just use the diagram on page 220 of the manual to make up the cable if you have
been using the standard Elecraft microphone and cabling.

Jorge,

I think you are confused how the menu works; when the RRC's (K3's) are connected and you
go into the menu, then you are changing the radio K3 and NOT the control RRC's menu. So when
you change which microphone is used, it is the radio and not the control side.

To change the control side, you must NOT be connected to the radio by removing the COM2 cable
or something else to prevent the two K3's exchanging data. Then the menu will change the control
side.

If you are going into the RRC, then it is irrelevant which menu you use on the control side. The radio side
uses audio from the rear line input.

Hi Jorge,

Since it depends upon the way you have the red straps configured, only you can answer that
question. Tip: look at the manual for your microphone and you will see which pins are used for
microphone audio, which is always mono.

Hi Jorge,

It is pretty straight forward and has been asked here many times already:

- Plug a cable in between the sound card's audio output (line out if available) and the RJ45 MIC/AUX
   of the control RRC. Take an old ethernet cable and cut off one end to make it easy.
- Plug an audio cable between the control RRC's SPK jack and the sound card's microphone input
   (line in if available).

Hi Fernando,

It has been on the forum a few times, but the short answer is that you can look this up in
the manual: pages 94,95 & 242 (Appendix B).

Hi Andy,

Glad it is working well. Did you change the port number?

Bill,

Since you will not be using an RRC, you can't automatically have this tracked, so only the web interface
will do the job for you.

You have two choices:

1) Use the internal URL over Teamviewer when not at home

2) Change the port from 80 to something else and forward that to access from outside. You can either use the
Microbit dynamic DNS service, or you may already have a dynamic DNS address or fixed IP at your home that
you use now for access. Since you only have one external IP address, it doesn't matter which way you access the
switch, just remember to add the port number to the URL with a colon in between.

Bill,

I thought that you were going to use this as a local switch, or do you plan on using it remotely?

If my assumption is right, then you do not want to use the dynamic DNS at all. Just use the internal
IP number that was assigned by the router's DHCP server. Like I wrote before, use the Microbit Setup
Manager and click on the "browse" button and bookmark that URL.

Hi Bill,

In the manual, there is a diagram on page 5 and it tells you this in the list on page 6. Anyway,
PoE stands for "Power over Ethernet", so it is designed for that purpose  ;)

Glad that you got it working!

Mike, I don't think he is using an RRC, judging by his questions.

Bill, it would make life a lot easier for you if you were to read the manual at:
http://www.remoterig.com/downloads/AS-1269-Users_manual.pdf

Basically, use the Microbit Setup Manager to change it to DHCP. Then click on the browse button
to see its web page and bookmark that link. It will be something like 192.168.XX.YYY where XX
is your router's subnet and YYY is the IP address that the router's DHCP server gave the switch.
