[App_rpt-users] Echolink Database Downloading Partial Updates, Can't connect for over 30 Minutes.

Should we be relying on the data that is collected by the 5 minute polls for
authentication? By doing the authentication on stale data  as is done by
app_rpt/chan_echolink we are seeing that every iPhone connect is using a
node number and callsign that is **NOT** that of the station connecting as
the entry in the local DB is stale. I suspect that the windows version of
echolink does a query when a station connects as it rarely has the wrong
callsign for proxy users and does not take 5-10 minutes to allow connects
from non-proxy clients.

 

I suspect that the users below is using a private proxy (no sure if they can
configure that) and as such will never be able to connect at it looks like
the iPhone app only logs in to the proxy when the user hits the connect
button.

Can't connect for over 30 Minutes.

 

I started testing Echolink capability this morning, it wasn't for about two
weeks and I don't know why. It would keep timing out when trying to connect
to my node, but outbound connections from the node were working. Now its
working.....

 

Ok, Echolink via iPod with proxy settings. I sat here for over 30 minutes
trying to connect and kept getting "UN-AUTHORIZED". I know the repeater
downloads the database every 5 minutes but it looks like only partials. Here
is my output:

My Question is, Is there any way to change how often it performs a Full
download instead of a partial. I understand the security of waiting for a
call to be in the databases, but this timing is ridiculous.
