Re: DigiPeating and iGate oddities here

Lynn Deffenbaugh

KWD710(APRS) type ports do NOT support digipeating.  This is a restriction because in that protocol, paths cannot be set to include the used (*) bit which is required for digipeating.  Only KISS and AGW type ports support digipeating because in those, the AX.25 header is fully constructed and can include the required used bit.

So, the logs you're seeing from your KWD710(APRS) port show the digipeater logic detecting a packet that it CAN digipeat, so it fully constructs the new packet, but when it passes it off to the port, the port protocol driver (KWD710(APRS) in this case) rejects it because it is a digipeat packet.  Hence the burst of logs for each digipeat-able packet.

If you use an APRS-type port to your D710 or the AGW port to the other side of the radio, the digipeat function should work, provided of course that you receive a packet that your configuration thinks should be digipeated.

I have dozens of such from my overnight test run.

I am trying to nail down a "correct" setup so I can store it as such then revert to someting that works when I (again) mess things up s I attempt to learn.

so what's with the DigiPeat Error?

I appear to have guessed right on iGate:

So how did I iGate that one?
