I am using the following remote equipment:

Radio end: TS590S, RRC1258MkII, wired network, signals to modem delivered with fiber, speed 50/50
Control end: HP Prodesk with Windows 11, ARCP-590 V.2.02 as rig control, RRC1258MkII connected with USB and configured with USB comport as COM2, wired network, signals to modem delivered with fiber, speed 500/500
The equipment has been used with this setup for a long time and has worked excellently.
Suddenly when connected in the normal way; First i establish contact with RRC-1258MkII in radio end and power up the unit.
Second in remote end, i open the ARCP-590 rig control software and expect as normal, contact to be established to the USB COM port, as normal. This does not happen.
This message appear:

"Unknown device is connected to COM X. Or baudrate settings of this software is not correct"

I have not configured any changes since last time i used the equipment and it has been used like this for a very long time of period.
I have tried to update COM port drivers, The connection between RRC units in both ends are ok,
I have the latest firmware in both RRC units.
I have the latest and correct ARCP-590 software.

HEEEELP!!! Anyone who have experiance with the same problem???

Bruker følgende utstyr til remote.:
Radioende: TS590S, RRC1258MkII, kablet nettverk, signaler inn til modem leveres med fiber, hastighet 50/50
Kontrol ende: HP Prodesk med Windows 11, ARCP-590 som rigkontrol, RRC1258MkII tilkoblet med USB og konfigurert med USB comport som COM2, kablet nettverk, signaler inn til modem leveres med fiber, hastighet 500/500
Utstyret er brukt med dette oppsettet over lang tid og har fungert utmerket.
Plutselig ved tilkobling på normal måte; kobler utstyr i radioende til strøm, åpner ARCP590 i kontroll ende, men denne feilmeldingen kommer opp:
"Unknown device is connected to COM 10. Or baudrate settings of this software is not correct"
Det er ikke gjort endringer på oppsettet før denne meldingen kom opp.
Noen tips til meg???

Happy new year everyone.
I have my radio end RRC-1258 placed in a side building at my cottage. I have a small heater on, which i would like to switch off.
That means, caused by bad insulation in the tiny litte shack, that temperature indoor will be approx the same as outdoor. Can result in -10-15 degrades celsius.
Questions: can i leave it there or should i dismantle the box from the shelfe and bring it home for the rest of the winter season???

I have established static external IP adress in my network at radio end. How do i configure static IP adress in the control unit instead of DYNDNS adress.
Anyone who know??

Thanks for new reply.
Have tried several different settings in app, due to jitter buffer size and jitter delay. The ports are the same as in RRC.
Have also updated RRC to the latest firmware.
Band switch still out of function.
But i can change band via the freq setting. I can sett the frew manually and than turn the VFO.
Than put in a new freq on another band and again turn the VFO.
It's ok in this way. not going to spend too much time trying to figure this out.
This will never be the main way to run the raido remotely.
But, it is very comfortable to have the possibillity.
Thanks for your cooperation.  :D

Sorry, wrong answer. Yes, i have installed tha CAT cable. APP is doing nice on RX/TX, but the  freq, i have to put it in by my self in the freq area. It does not appear when i "connect" the system. And, band changing is not working. But no problem having QSO.
And ofcourse i could accept it like this, but there is something wrong because thoose two details is "out of function" so to speak.
The internet quality at radio end is quit good, download/upload have variations, but normaly like this: down appr. 5-7 and up appr. 3-4 Mbps.
The internet speed through my android phone while i tested the system, was download appr. 3Mbps and upload appr. 1Mbps
I don't think the problem is the quality on the internet system.

Just installed the nano app for Kenwood, to my TS590S and bought the license, it is up going.
But it is not possible to change band or use the VFO properly.
The freq. is not appearing, but if i "click" the freq area and write the freq in the new window after the "click"
But, the freq is not "following" when i turn the VFO.
Anyone having some ideas for how to solve this??

I am running daily my remote system, with the RRC 1258MkII and my Kenwood TS590S.
Now testing the software for PC client, concidering to by that product.
As hostname in my system i use Dyn DNS adress and are familiar with that system.
Have configured the PC client software in trial version, trying to connect but return message is:
"Password not accepted"
I assume it means the Dyn DNS password.
Anyone having some suggests on what i might have done wrong??

Helli Willi.

All are working 100% at my system now.
Thanks for all help.
Worked nice in my internal network,  connected the RRC radio unit to the "external" network and worked nice there as well.
Using the RS232/USB. work's also with minUSB/USB.
Works in both softwares, HRD and Kenwood ARCP.
Using the setup you sent me.
Thanks again.
Looking forward to pack things together and drive to the cottage for configuration up there.

Forgot to mention, JMP3 are in place at COM2 in both RRC.......


Hi willi

Thanks for reply.
Now, i have tested almost "everything". Ports are opened in the modem at the radio end, DynDNS  are configurated and works well.
At the radio end, i have a modem/internet connection with the following speed: download 15-25 Mbit/s, upload 1 - 2 Mbit/s.
I have tried the RS232/USB cable, (FTDI chip) comes up with COM port 6. Have also tried USB/USB, comes upp with all the installed virtual COM ports; 11, 12, 13 (extra), 14. All ports with baudrate 9600. Same baudrate in radio and on COM2 in borth RRC .
When i try HRD for connectio, i set the TS-590 - baudrate 9600 - COM 6 or one of the other COM ports mentioned above.. With or without CTS - RTS. No connection.
If i try to connect via the ARCP 590. V.2.02, i get this error: "Unknown device is connected to COM:XX, or Baudrate setting of this software is not correct"
In the control RRC i have set: "Use USB comport as comport 2: YES"

You maby wonder why do i not set up the both TS-590S as TWIN, the reason is that i would like to use the RADIO END as a listening station and the station at my control end (home QTH) as a transmit station. Thats because i have more power to use at my home QTH, and my remote QTH is more "quiet" . Noise level lower.

Do you have any idea what i could have done wrong or maby not done at all????

JMP3 are in place at COM2 in both RRC.

Thanks Mitch, for your info. I will store this for later use.
A have all cables from Microbit, to use both Twin solution and the "single" solution with the TS-590S
As project 1 i would like to test the system where i use the TS-590S at the radio end only.
And then at the control end, for example control the rig via HRD or ARCP.
Both RRC's are set for this function, according to the manual.
At the control end i have Microbit RS232 cable connected to COM port 2 at the RRC, since i do not have a RS232 COM port in my desktop computer, i have connected the RS232 cable to a RS232/USB cable with the FTDI chip installed.
Therefore i get a serial COM port in my computer. I have tried, in the ARCP software and HRD as well, to connect simply via the COM port connection in the software. Hopefully this is understandable.
But, nothing happends.
I have to start all over again, step by step and see what happends.
Thanks again for your info.
