Hi the serialport server can be used for what ever you want. if you have the serial adapter 1216S conencted to the WS, you can connect a virtual serialport from the PC to the WS. There is no controlsignals just RXD and TXD.

Hi Frank,

I believe the serial port server only is for the rotor and nothing else on the Webswitch, so it is
useless for you, sorry.

Thanks Mitch...Each reply you give me is appreciated but also causes me to want to know more!....I have played with the webswitch serial port and have it setup on my control point PC.   When I move the switch to my remote location how do I use the serial port remotely?...In order to set the serial port up at the remote it needs to be plugged into USB port and will appear in the device manager on the remote PC.   But then what?...how can I control it from home?

Is there an application note available anywhere that can guide me through the serial port use?

My primary objective here is not really the serial port ... it is control of the rotator  and possibly switch one coaxial relay to provide for a 4th antenna port in addition to the three I have available from the KAT500.   I can see how to do both of these functions using the web browser pages.

Hi,

as the search function does not lead to any result, my question:

Is someone using the RRC1258 in an EOC (Ethernet over coax) environment? Is the audio (SIP) properly working?
I read somewhere that audio fails every 50 seconds.

Thanks

Hi Mitch,

No the problem is from Control side at my home, when it goes down i try rebooting first from the bottom of page but does not work.
I can see the web page OK fine the control side.

At the radio page this seems to go down when the radio is not working and only shows after rebooting again in the farm. this is the only reason i ask for help at radio side, Will try copy problem next time down Mitch.

Hi Gary,

So if I understood you correctly, it works fine when not used at your home? That would indicate that the
problem is at your home and not at the remote site. Seems that your ISP or router has a problem.

It is important to know what the status page says when it goes down.

I still don't understand what you mean that someone needs to reboot the RRC. First of all, all you need to do
is to go into its web page a click on the reboot menu at the bottom. I saved your RRC's web page in case you
had future problems and would have no problem rebooting from here, so you should as well. Second of all, if
the problem is on the control side, then that is where you should look for the problem and rebooting should
not be necessary.

Hi Mitch,
I have notice at first it sounds like a bad connection between my home and where radio side is located.
This has been installed again for over 5 weeks and seems to go down always before the weekend and need to for help at Radio side.
I can see the status page OK but did not copy what was shown when RRC dies.
Have tried from the connection at my home and also from my mobile O2 Wifi that works OK when away from home.
This has to be reboot from his home as RRC Radio is located outside in the farm and he can't see box flashing.

73,
Gary

Hi Gary,

You need to provide a lot more data to locate the problem, for example:

- How long does it take until the connection dies?
- Does it happen consistently and at the same rate?
- What does the status page say on each RRC after the connection dies?
- Have you tried it from a different control location to see if it behaves the same?
- Why would someone have to turn it off and on? Is the web interface no longer working or accessible to reboot it that way?
etc.

Small world LOL. I know Cecil so I'll say hi. Along with PARC, I am a member of the PAPA system and use the analog, DMR and D-Star repeaters.

As for Naples or Carlsbad, well Naples is cheaper. I lived in West Melbourne for ~8 years and just relocated back to EXPENSIVE SoCal :-). I went through the last two hurricanes (Cat 1 on our side). The second one damaged our roof and we were almost flooded (6 more inches) as the retention ponds overflowed and they could not pump the water into the canals as they were also over capacity. We ran our generator for 36+ hours so we didn't lose any food and kept cool with some fans. This is nothing compared to what the west cost of the peninsula got. I hope you did not sustain too much damage.

This being said, although I am not thrilled about the cost of living over here, I do prefer the SoCal climate over the hot, humid and stormy Florida coast. Our daughter lives around 20 miles south of us (Mira Mesa), which also compensates.

I will report back to this thread regarding my data connections so that others can have reference.

73 and I'll share non thread stuff and Cecil's response via E-mail.
