I received a new shipment date from HRO: the first week
of December. I sure hope this doesn't slip again, since I would
like to bring my order back with me from my trip to the U.S.
over the holidays.

There is still no price as well.

The USB cable must be used to change the box to either a fixed internal
IP address for your subnet, or to DHCP to get an address from your
router automatically.

After you change it, you then must put the ethernet cable between
the box and your network and enter the internal IP address of the box.

If DHCP,  you may need to read this address in the DHCP table in
your router, unless you have few devices connected and can guess it
(e.g.,, etc.)

It will not work unless you change the IP address or to DHCP first, since
the default IP address will not work in your network (unless you have subnet
192.168.0.xx), nor will it work when you directly connect the box to your PC.

Note to Mike: there seem to be a lot of standard networking questions
that pop-up, it would make a lot of sense to add a network FAQ to the
manual. Your setup section does not appear to be enough.

I would check to see if it does indeed continue retrying, since that
is the only plausible explanation of why I had this problem, but no
one else did.

Yes, I was one of the guys that reported the web page accessibility
problem with 2.25 (and only with 2.25!). 2.26 has definitely
solved this, it hasn't died once since I installed 2.26.

Then I have a question: when DynDNS returns an error, does it continue to
try at the defined intervals, or does it give-up and stop at that point?

If it gives-up, then this would mean the problem was coincidentally with
DynDNS at the time I installed 2.26 and simply changing the password, etc.
has no effect. You must disable/re-enable or recycle the power. This would
also explain why only I had that problem.

Since 2.26 solved the stability issue with the web page accessibility, I had
no reason to recycle the power since installing it.

On the "Status" page, next to last is "DYNDNS status".
It said error until I deactivated and reactivated it, now
it says "OK" as it should (and I double checked the DynDNS
web site to make sure it updated).

Yes, there are several, but is the largest one.

I have a paid account and have several host names. At my
remote QTH, I have different ones on four devices, since my
router sometimes does not update. This allows me to have
fallback host names in case I can't reach my station.

Anyway, I just deactivated it in the RRC-1258 and then
reactivated it again, now it finally updated. If anyone was
using dyndns before 2.26, they need to apparently do this
in order to make it work again.

Thanks & 73,

Which service are you using? Maybe the problem is
specific to I tried reentering my information,
even though it was still there, with no change.

After having some "Murphy" problems doing RemoteRig demos, I also
decided to order a WLAN bridge. I found something that is very small
and even can be powered by the PC's USB port: The Netgear WNCE2001

Although I find 2.26 to be stable and a good improvement, I noticed that
the DynDNS update no longer works, and returns an error message. I
use the RemoteRig as a backup to my router's DynDNS with a different
address, so it is not mission critical, which is why I just now noticed the

In checking my log on, it indicates my last update took place
the evening of Oct. 28th, which is when I installed 2.26.

I am still waiting for HRO to confirm receipt of the heads.
They were supposed to be delivered last week.

Stay tuned!

I haven't had a problem at all with audio, or any other functionality
with RemoteRig for that matter.

My stability issue is purely related to accessing the HTML page to
make configuration changes.

I have tried to access the web page the last two days, and each time it was not reachable.
The remote RRC has always connected without a problem, so this is specifically something
in the web server itself that was changed in 2.21.

I thought it was related to dyndns, so I forced a new IP number, but that was not the problem
after all. I am not sure how I can figure out what is causing this problem. There is always the
possibility that it may still be a dyndns problem that does not occur every time.

Hi Jan,

I don't have a reason to access the web page too often, so therefore
it is difficult to pinpoint when this problem occurs. If no one else can
help, the I can start accessing on a regular basis to try to figure out
when the problem occurs.

I have noticed that the web page was not available a couple of times,
although a connect from the remote side was still possible. It required
a power restart to fix.

Once a dyndns update also crashed the box and required a power restart.
There are apparently some minor stability issues with this version.

I spoke to HRO this week; they should be available near the end of the month.
