[App_rpt-users] EchoLink and APRS issues

Hi,

Two things come to mind:

First, you can't connect more than one Echolink node from behind the same firewall. You'll probably want to set up your port forwarding to your repeater's IP address, 5198-5200 UDP, 5200 also TCP. If you have your port forwarding set for your Windows machine, clearly you'll need to reset that. If you don't have it set up at all, as Windows seems to work around that requirement, you'll need to set up the port forwarding from your router to your repeater. 

Second, remember that for a radio link, you'll need a -r or a -l node, which means requesting a new node number.  

Finally, and this is sort of a big deal that I don't think has been addressed yet, you're kind of SOL if you have a seven-digit node number. chan_echolink only recognizes node numbers that are six digits or fewer. Unless that changed and no one told me. 

Vy 73,

I am able to log into EchoLink via the Windows App, but not on the AllStarLink repeater. Because I can get logged in with the Windows App on the same network, I don't think it is credentials nor router settings. I have been able to connect to other AllStarLink nodes, but thus far haven't found anyone active to test my audio. Perhaps you can advise me on what I am doing wrong. Here are printouts from my echolink.conf, gps.conf, and modules.conf files (passwords removed). Let me know if you need any other information. Any advise is very much appreciated. I am sure before the end of this, I will have many more questions.
