Re: Networking problem

Larry K8UT

Just to clarify:

The new feature in N1MM+, and the Zoom teleconference this week described Distributed Multi-Op (DMO) contesting over a Virtual Private Network (VPN). In DMO each ham - in his/her own shack - operates his/her computer, radio and antenna, but logs their contacts on an N1MM+ wide area network. In this architecture, everything is distributed and only logging is shared over a network.

Gordon is describing remote contest operation in which each ham connects remotely, via a VPN, using some remote operating software, to co-located computers, radios and antennas. In this architecture, the operators are distributed, everything else is centrally located.

[[Unfortunately, the recording of that teleconference was lost. There are more planned and we'll try to get a subsequent Zoom (or a K8UT Video) posted on this topic.]]

Are you using the latest N1MM+ release ?

Tom N1MM and Larry K8UT
Recently held a Zoom conference 
Only about 8 people attended
Everyone used LogMeIn Hamachi ‘s VPN tool

We should see a recording of that session released

The tool set was easy to use

I'm trying to get multiop contesting setup using my remote site. I have
a VPN server running at the site, and we can all VPN in with no problem.

We can ping the server system from our home computers (all Win10) when
the vpn link is active.  N1MM++ does not see the server site from each
home site.

What else should be checked?  VNC works fine (with the VPN active)
