Topic : how do you call CQ?

So,

you're taking your new hsmm-mesh node out for a spin in your car, and your copilot is using wscan to see what nodes you are encountering, and suddenly you spy another hsmm-mesh node. What do you do? What app can you run which will announce your presence, if your two mesh nodes connect? (How do you call CQ to announce your presence to the other node owner?

Or, if you are by yourself, driving along, is there some application that will announce to you that your node has connected to another mesh?

Topic : posting to forums using Safari

If you are posting to the forums using Safari (Mac browser), you may find that you need to use the IE user agent. To enable this: Safari->Preferences->Advanced->"Show Develop in Menu Bar". Then Develop->"User Agent"->"Internet Explorer 8".

I find that to get the "Toggle Editor" to work, I need to change the IE emulated from IE8 to IE7.

You might find this useful if you have questions, and are unable to pose them. ;)

Topic : fw >= 0.3.3 ssh port is 2222

If, like me, you don't read the release notes, be advised that for fw >= 0.3.3, the ssh port is on 2222, rather than the default 22. So, to ssh to the router:

ssh -p 2222 root@IP_address

and don't forget that the scp command uses the -P option, as in:

scp -P 2222 file_to_send root@IP_address

Topic : UDP Port Question

Sorry for sparse information and delay. I had walked away from this project for a few days...

I have two WRT54Gs configured  with HSMM-MESH 0.3.3-WRT54G firmware. Node 1 is configured as a gateway and is connected to my home router where it receives a DHCP-provided IP on the WAN port. Node 2 is also located at my home QTH for testing. My Asterisk server is attached to the LAN port of Node 2. For testing, target nodes are all DMZ’d. IAX2 and HTTP work across the mesh. My Echolink node shows to be logged in and active, but I cannot connect to other Echolink stations, nor can any Echolink station connect to me. Echolink is not in use on any other computers at the time of testing.

Thinking that I must have HSMM-MESH configured improperly, I temporarily replaced the Asterisk server (where Echolink resides) with a laptop running Windows Echolink software.  The laptop was set to the same static IP as the Asterisk server. The Echolink software test shows that UDP ports fail. TCP ports pass. However, upon further investigation, it appears that Echolink validates the private IP of HSMM-MESH Node 2, rather than the public IP assigned by my ISP.

I hope that helps clarify what I’m attempting to do… everything works as it should if I bypass the HSMM-MESH nodes and connect to my home network. I'm hearing from some that Echolink will not work across a mesh network. If that's the case, there are some fairly easy ways to work-around the problem. I am just curious if others are successful where I have failed.

Topic : Ham bandwidth available

From time to time the discussion comes up about band congestion, interference with other services and similar. I prepared a chart that shows all of the frequencies available to amateur radio operators. I have attached it here. One of the interesting things about these wireless routers is that a block frequency converter can be attached to the antenna connector and a suitable antenna for the second band attached to the converter. When that happens the mesh node thinks it is "talking" on 2.4ghz. The real frequency is unknown to the node and doesn't even matter. Everything just works. Alternate locations for this purpose include 9, 5 and 3cm bands. Others are possible as well.

Take a look at the massive bandwidth available then stop to think about which parts of our frequency allocations we actually use.

New: Here is a discussion on use of other resources. Take a look at how ham frequencies available to us map to channels on other bands. This is part of the blogspot posting discussed elsewhere in this topic.

Topic : Thanks to Jim for the Mesh Forums

Good info on extra topics. We already have some options. Rather than create a number of subjects, we can let discussions develop and move a particular question or series of questions to another area. This can be done by creating a category then moving one or more forum items to that area. This keeps us focused on things that matter to users rather than things that matter to admins.

We will be adding some admin tools to assist with management of the forums. Till then, please register using your ham call sign. Any needed changes to an account can easily be made behind the scenes. To request a change, just click on the webmaster link and tell us what you want.

Buy/sell/trade already has a number of methods so duplication isn't really necessary here. In keeping with the ham tradition of frugality and conversion to ham uses, please let us know of great finds for free stuff, ideas to use an existing product to suit your needs or great deals for stuff we need.

I'm still not clear exactly what your setup is. Can you tell us what your node setup is, what is connected to them, and which routes work and which do not?

Topic : Thanks to Jim for the Mesh Forums

Hi Lloyd, I had found this plug-in, so I plugged it in. Smile

I didnt look to see what all options, etc are in it yet. I was waiting for user-input on what they might like/need/etc.

As for deleting one's account, I suppose all you need to do is start causing crap, arguing, etc, and it will get deleted for you Wink

As for changing email addresses, if you ever need something, Im usually around, so just shoot me an email.

And as for subscribing to all topics... Ill have to look into that.

Having different forums for different geographical areas is a great idea! Ill work on adding as I find out who/what/where (I know Austin and Plano would be 2 good starters).

I dont know if a buying forum would be a good idea or not. There are plenty of outlets for that already. Ill see what the powers that be think.

I think releases and news already get put up on the main part of the site. Again, would the higher powers like to chime in? Laughing

Great suggestions, though, and Im sure most will be taken into account.

THX & 73

The new forums look great. Thanks Jim!

Some options that I would expect don't seem to be available. Are you still adding functions and features? For example, I don't see a way to delete one's account or change the E-mail address. I would also like to have the ability to subscribe to all topics in a forum.

If I may, I would like to mention some suggestions for names of forums:
1. Releases & Announcements
2. News
3. Documentation & Tutorials
4. Austin Local - for issues, concerns, and announcements that only affect people in the Austin area
5. Buy, Sell, Trade
6. Administrative - for issues and suggestions about the web site

I expect the organization of the forums will develop naturally as postings are added.

Thanks

Topic : Selecting Avatars in Profile?

If you use JPGs, it wont show up in the avatar pulldown, but if you refresh the page after uploading, it will show the pic you used. I just tested it, and when I did the initial upload, it kept he old picture, but on a refresh of the page, it changed.

Topic : UDP Port Question

I'm attempting to use a distribution of Asterisk (ACID) which has provisions for Echolink and IRLP. The system is operational through my home network (Linksys WRT-54 with DD-WRT). For testing, I have a two-node HSMM-MESH set up in the house. I have Internet access across the mesh, but I lose the ability to connect using Echolink. To troubleshoot, I downloaded a Windows copy of Echolink and installed it in place of the Asterisk box (same IP). The port testing utility within Echolink indicates that TCP ports are open, but UDP ports are not. First I tried forwarding all necessary ports and then tried DMZing through both routers. I'm successfully logging in to the Echolink server via the mesh, but I'm not able to connect.

Topic : Selecting Avatars in Profile?

I think I figured it out.  It only seems to like images with a PNG extension.  Once I used xnview to convert my jpg to png the forum used my uploaded image.





[KF5FDH 04-09-2010 01:49:04]:

Profiles allows me to upload avatar images but does not let me select any of the images I just uploaded. The only selection I get is avatar1.jpg

Is that a forum setting or am I doing something wrong?

Yes, all IP traffic can be transported over the mesh. What exactly is your goal, and how are you trying to get there? ad5oo

Topic : UDP Port Question

I am new to HSMM-MESH but reasonably comfortable with networking  concepts. I was hoping to use HSMM-MESH to provide a remote link to one  of my repeaters that uses an Asterisk-based controller. I have been  experimenting with various configurations parameters, but so far I have  not been able to successfully forward UDP ports across the mesh.  Does  HSMM-MESH support UDP port forwarding?

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

Topic : The forums are up!!

Welcome to the Forums!

Unfortunately, we will now have to have people register to use the site, if they would like to use the forums.

This will keep riff-raff, spam, etc to a minimal.

If you have an idea for a separate forum, please email Jim (at k5ktf.com) and Ill be glad to add if its appropriate.

Please enjoy, answer questions if you have knowledge of the topic or question, and remember, this is here to HELP EACH OTHER GET HSMM-MESH WORKING.

Any crap, negative postings, slandering, or just general garbage will get you kicked and banned from the forums.

Now, lets all go play nice together!
