Hi,

I think you're hitting a security feature of the Registration System.

When running wget (or the node info collection scripts, like:  
rc.updatenodelist), you must use the same source IP address as
used during the Asterisk registration requests sent from Asterisk when it 
is running. And, your node must be properly registered to retrieve the 
node list.

So, is the source IP address of the AllStar/Asterisk server on the
44.0.0.0/8 network?  And, if so, when running wget, do you use the same
source IP address as Asterisk?  If not, these addresses must be the same.


Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!!
