Re: digipeater behaviour upon connected mode frames

Lynn Deffenbaugh

As far as I know, APRSISCE/32 only handles UI frames.  All other frames will fail one of my consistency checks on the Protocol field in the AX.25 header.  This, of course, only applies to KISS-interfaced TNCs.

You should be able to see all APRSISCE/32 Digipeater activity in the Digi trace log if you enable it.  The non-UI traffic should show up with something in the Port() and never appear in the Digi log.

Hi Lynn, hi folks,

in the Robust Packet (APRS) Network Europe we are presently working on a coordinated digipeating.

Maximum 6 digipeaters act as such while all others serve as bi-directional igate "only".

Problem: packets from connected mode QSO get digipeated as well costing a hell lot of traffic.

UI-View digipeaters now activated the ' UI only ' box which should help.

Question: After our recommended DigiXform is ...>WIDE1-1=OH6DL-10*<... for a traceable 1 hop operation

the question raised *** How does APRSIS32 react when a connected mode frame comes across? ***

Or the other way around *** Does APRSIS32 handle UI frames only ? ***

Thanks for helping on that issue!
