Unknown traffic on HVS-2

Ernst Lobsiger
 

Dear All

I have unknown traffic on HVS-2. This traffic is not
found in EUMETSAT's channel and PID pages but according
routes exist in K.-P.'s Linux smcroute configuration file.

a) PID 610  224.223.224.1  to Port 6099 UDP
b) PID 610  224.223.224.3  to Ports 6014 and 6015 UDP

Moreover I get a mean 53.3 KBytes/s traffic on PID 611
c) PID 611  224.223.224.1  to Port 7014 UDP

EUMETSAT does not mention HVS-2 traffic on PID 611 anymore
and there is no entry in K.-P.'s smcroute configuration file.
 
Smcroute cannot route at the same time a) and c) because
of the same destination address. When my version of script
dvb-eumetcast wants to setup the route c) for PID 611 the
similar route a) for PID 610 is deleted (or overwritten?).
So I route a) only and do not even setup a PID for c) now.


Does anybody know what this traffic is for?


Cheers,
Ernst

Hi, the info about location are old. Now the dish is a Gibertini 125 and LNB Is a INVERTO

Roby
================================

I've updated your information, Roby. Thanks! If the location has changed I would appreciate knowing that too, direct e-mail. I fudge it a little to ensure your privacy.

Hello,

I wonder if the EUMETCast user in Trieste could identify the make/model of his/her 85 cm 'diamond' dish please.
You appear to get much higher SNR/Link margin levels than I do with a 1 m offset dish using an Ayecka SR1.

And, what make/model of LNB do you use?

Thanks in advance,
John T.

Douglas,

thanks for the reminder. Just switched my Linux receiver to GOES-16 on HVS-1, all runs well.

============================================================================

Graham the image data for NOAA 20 is still on test and not available to users yet.
To be honest I am not sure why it is taking so long to make the VIIRS data available as it has been on test I think for almost 5 months and NOAA 20 is now fully operational.

Its from 2 yrs ago so has worked for me over several updates. All it
means is that you have control over the PC restart and not windows.
Thanks Alan. Having W10Pro with the 'pause update' facility I'm not
sure I need those instructions now.

I set both my PCs to pause. I just turned pause off on one of them and
saw it downloading and installing the latest update. After it
restarted I set it to pause again.

The only thing I need to remember is to check, maybe weekly, if there
are any updates pending install.

Perfect, Alan, thanks!
Did you need to do the file rename and create a dummy "Reboot" directory as well?
Cheers,

TBH, I don't remember,
I did the file rename, but generally just followeed the instructions,

Both my PCs (HP Elite SFF) are 2nd hand (ex-industry?) and came with
W10 Pro, so I'm pleased that I have the pause option.

Why is your PC not set to automatically restart after the reboot? That way
you would only lose a few minutes of data. Steps required:
[snip details]

One PC runs my CCTV cameras, the other MSG (FTPHelper), WXtoImg and
Orbitron/SDR# plus VNC to connect to a remote netbook which runs my
weather station. (That netbook is on XP and shows "up-time" of 503
days!)

I think the effort required to get all those to restart automatically
is beyond my expertise.

I'm quite happy to restart things manually - when it's convenient for
me. I.e. no satellites due, cctv unlikely to record anything
significant, etc.

Thanks for your suggestions, but now I'm aware that I can pause the
install of updates, I'll do things manually ASAP after the update has
downloaded.

It looks like some of the lines in my previous post got mangled - the full path to the executable should be given, so:

start /low C:\Path\program.exe -start

Having said that...

I've just gone into Settings, Update & Security and it's showing
KB4343909 pending install and "We'll automatically install updates
when you aren't using your device...".

But if I click on Advanced options there is "Pause Updates" for up to
35 days. Maybe this is an option in W10 Pro but not the Home version?

Anyway, I've turned this on and it tells me Updates paused until
25/09/2018. What I can do is turn that off when I'm ready to install,
then do the update, then turn it back on again.

~~~~

A couple of times this year I've woken up and found the start-up
screen, meaning several hours and satellite passes lost.

I've now set the active hours to 22:00 to 14:00, meaning it shouldn't
update while I'm asleep :-)

Are the instructions different to those described by Thorsten, which
for me didn't seem to work (well, I didn't get the permission denied
message).

I would appreciate looking at the html page and trying that. If it's
more convenient you could zip it up and email it to me rather than
uploading it somewhere.

Barry
============================================

Barry,

Yes, "Pause updates" is only an option in Pro, one of the reasons I recommend that version.

Why is your PC not set to automatically restart after the reboot? That way you would only lose a few minutes of data. Steps required:

1. Create a .CMD file containing all the instructions you need to start the weather satellite software. It might be something like:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
REM C:\Tools\RunLoginTasks.cmd
start /low D:\Tools\SatSignal\AVHRRmanager\AVHRRmanager-P.exe -start
timeout 15
start /low D:\Tools\SatSignal\MetopManager\MetopManager-P.exe -start
timeout 15
start /low D:\Tools\SatSignal\MetopManager-B\MetopManager-B.exe -start
timeout 15
start /low :\Tools\SatSignal\MsgDataManager-IODC\MsgDataManager-IODC.exe -start -log
timeout 5
start /low :\Tools\SatSignal\MsgDataManager-RSS\MsgDataManager-RSS.exe -start -log
timeout 5
start /low :\Tools\SatSignal\MsgDataManager\MsgDataManager-P.exe -start -log
timeout 5
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

and it could contain other programs, of course.

2. Use the Task Scheduler to create a basic task with settings:

- Name: Run login tasks
- Triggers: When I logon
- Action: Start a program: C:\Tools\RunLoginTasks.cmd

For example:
https://www.digitalcitizen.life/how-create-task-basic-task-wizard

3. Set your user to automatically login, for example:

https://www.intowindows.com/how-to-automatically-login-in-windows-10/

I hope that helps!

David

Thanks Alan. I do intend to keep my PCs up to date, but when it's
convenient for me, not when Microsoft thinks it's ok to install.

I'm NOT getting "permission denied".
Looking at Advanced Security Settings for UsoClient, if I change both
ALL and ALL RESTRICTED from Read & execute to just Read, it may cause
other problems and I don't want that to happen.
I may try the instructions (from the web page) again tomorrow and see
if it works.
