Once loaded on the target computer


Login: repeater

Passsword: allstarlink

SSH port: 22

User repeater has sudo (root) privileges (sudo -s)


If you are trying to login via ssh you will also want to edit
/etc/ssh/sshd_config. Use vi editor


Edit /etc/ssh/sshd_config with the following



Port xxx ;new port number



#PermitRootLogin prohibit-password


PermitRootLogin yes



There may have been updates to the operating system and AllStarLink since
this image was built.

Run the following commands after the first time you boot.


apt-get update

apt-get upgrade -y 



Used copy of apt_rpt *.conf files (at the # prompt run "asl-menu" to setup
your node)


If using RPi 3 with wifi, then execute wifi-setup at the command line

After several years of successful Asterisk repeater operation using Centos
(node 27610), I have decided to move into the 21st century and update to
Debian/Allstar/Asterisk. Sounded like a great project to attack over the
holidays. I dug up an identical HP dc5100 PC, same as current repeater
controller, for the new system. It has one CDROM drive and many USB ports.

The install .ISO file on the AllstarLink website is too big for a CD, so I
created a bootable thumbdrive and forced my PC to boot from that. After the
install completes and shuts down, I remove the thumbdrive and restart the
PC. It comes up with the repeater prompt, but does not continue the
installation of Asterisk. There exists no "asterisk.sh".

I would appreciate guidance on how to proceed.

BTW, the user "repeater" has no privileges and unknown password
("allstarlink" does not work).
