General discussion / Re: TS-480 Setup
« on: 2011-07-22, 02:53:56 »

I am seeing the same problem. 

It might be the heat here in Toronto, but I can't seem to find any manual for the Remote Micro.

I can connect to the radio end (this is all local lan testing). 

The radio is a TS480.  V2.41 at the radio end.

I have 1 orange light and 3 green lights for all Com ports.

Com 0 is correctly configured for the radio/baud rate, etc. (Com 11)

Yet, HRD can't connect to Com 11 even when configured correctly.

Where is this jumper described and what is its purpose?

Thanks, mike va3mw

I would reset both units and start again.  Go with the default settings, including the SIP ports. 

If that works, then start to modify it to suite your requirements.

Hi Simon

I know what you are thinking... I use DD-WRT at the cottage, but editing the hosts table is somewhat of a dark art (even after reviewing the wiki).  Most off the shelf routers don't have have that ability. 

Another option might be if the client end software could be configured to try 1 ip address with an alternate choice.  I know, this is what FQDN's are for.

Thanks Mike

Maybe others might request the same thing now that they have seen my request.

Please, don't get me wrong, you have developed a wonderful platform.

I often switch between being on the same subnet or being totally remote.  While this is easy to handle with the profiles by using fully qualified domain names and DHCP, it is a problem when I am on the same subnet at the cottage.

If I had a DNS server running at the cottage, then I could have the FQDN map to the local IP address, but I don't have a computer running just to do that.

My ask to Microbit -- Would it be possible to have a hardware switch to detect profile 1 or 2?  While I realize I might have to modify the Control box, this would be acceptable.  I could then add a small toggle switch (to 5v?) to tell it which profile to boot from.

However, I don't want to give up any of the current control lines to do this as I need them for CW Keying, etc.

Yes, there are only 3 serial ports, but can I access Com0 via USB on the Console end?

Hi Roger

Wow, I wish I was closer to you so I could help.  I just got my remote working from the house to the cottage. 

Can I measure anything for you?

There are some simple steps to make sure the configuration works:

The SIP Ports have to match (5060 or what ever you use)

At the far end (radio), you need to forward ports through your router will describe how it is done.  The manual tells you which ports.  (Sip port 5060 udp, 11000 udp, 12000 udp, and the web control port -- your choice ... like 8080 to port 80).

On the Far end (control head), you have to tell that RRC what the IP address is of the far end.  You can do this with dyndns, or with the IP address of the far end.  Sort of like telling your box which phone number to call.

General discussion forum / Com0 Com1 and Com2
« on: 2011-05-30, 21:30:25 »
In my setup, I have the following.

Com 1 is my Elecraft W2 Wattmeter
Com 2 is my LP-Remote control board for the remote site.

Am I correct in reading that at the control head end, that it is possible to connect the radio to the computer for HRD as example, but that I would have to give up Com 1 or Com 2 to do it?

You can set it up in your router to handle SIP traffic.  However, QOS only works well if you band shape ALL the traffic, not just some of it.

And, it only affects outbound traffic, not inbound. 

Odds are that you won't really need it.

Configuration, RRC 1258 / Re: Failed firmware update on 1258

Hi Steve

There must be something unique in your environment. 

I did exactly what you did via USB (no internet configuration done) and it worked just fine.  I was using Windows 7 64 Bit.

So, either your download is corrupt (highly unlikely) or there are issues on your usb buss. 

I know it sounds weird, but try another usb cable and try NOT using it on a Hub (you might have tried this already).

I have just ordered by RemoteRig from HRO for pickup in Dayton.  I also have the same request to be able to have alternate unique locations connect at times.

Thanks all!
