Did you try rebooting the RRC or anything else?

Mitch DJ0QN / K7DX

I don't know that program, but are you saying that it will not take a non-numerical address?

If so, just lookup the IP number. You can just ping the DDNS address and then use the address that comes
back in the other program.

Hi Daniel,

I highly doubt a malfunction.

Is full-duplex turned off as it should be?

Is the CW sidetone turned off on your rig?

Hi George,

It has been a few years, but I bought mine on Ebay.

Hi Paul,

Then I would change the RRC to DHCP and change the port forward to its new IP address and
see if that works.

No, Gerry, the power switch on the rig. That is why I wrote first hit the power switch, then
start the software after the connection is established.

Hi Paul,

It can only be one of two things:

1) You made the port forwards in the new router incorrectly or there is another router problem.

2) You didn't change the internal IP number in the RRC to match the new router's subnet/NAT.
    It is easiest just to switch to DHCP and then fix that address in the router. Some routers
    refuse to forward ports for IP addresses that they did not issue.

Hi Gerry,

You need to hit the power switch and have the two rigs talking to each other, then you can start the
software and it should work okay. I tested the FT-2000 version of his software with the twin station
I had about 10 years ago and it worked just fine that way.

Under the "IP Settings" menu, you will find "Web Server Port". Just change that to something else and forward
that port (TCP) in your router.

Address the page by using your DDNS address and appending the port at the end of the URL, separated by a colon,
e.g., where 12345 is the new port number. Note that you can use the same DDNS
address you use for your RRC, since every device points to the same external IP address.

I also highly suggest that you add a web user and password to the page for security reasons. I also suggest that you
change the RRC from port 80 to something else and add a password if you haven't already.

Mitch DJ0QN / K7DX

One should ALWAYS change both the web port number AND set a user name and password
to prevent that type of problem.

Note that it is highly recommended to forward the radio RRC web port to be able to make
adjustments, updates, etc. remotely as needed.

(1) Looks like the socket the radio RRC is connected to is acting like a keyer jack. It must act as a straight
key jack to work properly. Most rigs have a separate paddle and key jack, one must use the key jack. Maybe
that rig has a menu to configure the jack?

To use your external keyer, just follow the instructions in the RemoteRig manual on pages 95-96 & 243 (Appendix B).

Another alternative would be to use the RRC's built-in Winkey emulation. You need to change COM3/COMEXTRA to Winkeyer
and then use that USB serial port in Windows under your control software.

(2) Just use CAT! If you don't know how to set CAT up for that setup, here is a checklist to help you out:

CAT Checklist for RemoteRig Twin
Note first that in a "Twin" configuration, COM2 is used to "tie" the two ends together and carries the CAT data. In order to access CAT, you need to get to COM2 without touching it. The easiest method is to duplicate COM2 over COM1 using a function in the RRC as follows:

- Change both RRC's COM1 to mode-7. Note that the baud rate does not have to be identical with COM2 to fit a lower bandwidth or software requirement.

- If using a "real" serial cable:
     - connect a straight through serial cable between the control RRC's COM1 and the PC. If using a USB to serial converter cable, make sure it is using an FTDI chipset.
     - note that if you also use the radio RRC's COM1, the pinout is not the standard straight-through serial port. Use the pinout description in the RemoteRig manual, or just try a null-modem cable which usually works (may need a gender changer).
     - the  serial setting for COM1 "Use USB Com Port as COM1" must be set to NO

- If using USB:
     - make sure that first Microbit Setup Manager is installed first on the control PC to get the drivers.
     - Then change the serial settings for COM1 to change "Use USB Com Port as COM1" to YES
     - connect the USB cable between the RRC and computer and wait for the drivers to finish installing
     - go to the Windows Device Manager and look at which virtual serial port was assigned to COM1 and use that for your software, taking the correct baud rate into account.

Note also that you can pull CAT data in parallel off of the radio RRC to use a PC on that end, or to sync with a remote device (amplifier, SteppIR, etc.)

Actually, you will find a lot of information on this Forum where this question has been posed several times and there are some tips available if you were to use the search function.

The quick answer is that it is so easy, that you didn't realize it: just connect the audio output of the computer to the MIC/AUX input of the control RRC and the audio input to the computer from the control RRC's SP jack.

Using a sound card interface such as a RigBlaster or Microham is best, because:
- It provides better quality audio than the computer's sound card
- It separates the computer internal sounds from the amateur radio stuff
- It has isolation transformers that are usually missing when connecting directly to the computer
- Often you have a microphone cable available for the interface

I recommend going directly to the RRC and not through the K3/0 mini. Some people have been successful going through the mini (see the Forum), but I think it complicates things more and is not always trivial.

Make sure that you have CAT enabled for your station, since that is the best way to control WJST and contesting programs. I assume you already do, but just wanted to mention it. Use PTT over CAT on WJST if possible.

Someone on the Forum mentioned that some codecs are not as good for digital stuff than others, so you may wish to play with that a bit once you get it working.

So I hope this helps. I personally am not a digital user.

You don't need to change a thing in the Webswitch beyond the port number. You need to just enter
the DDNS address of the RRC into the browser followed by the port number with a colon in-between.

Let me take a look using Teamviewer when you have a chance. I am available some afternoons (EDT).
