Thanks Kevin. The fog is starting to lift HI HI! Makes sense now. I'll try
tonight to see if defining the Echolink node number here helps. Can't seem
to connect to the EL node from outside, but can Allstar->EL Test server OK.
5198 and 5199 are listening on Netstat -L. The Win7 EL app can also contact
the test node and Firewall Test checks instantly. This connectivity issue
is getting grating.
Thanks again, Ill keep plugging.
Duane
