Re: EERO and RSS

Howard Nurse, W6HN
 

Hi George,

Take a look at a service called PiTunnel.  It allows you to connect to RigPi from the WAN with no port forwarding required.  PiTunnel provides the added benefit of improved security.

PiTunnel cost $5/month, although they have a free level that allows you to test it.  RigPi would require the subscription service to handle control and Mumble simultaneously.

I tested PiTunnel’s free service, which allowed me to control my radio without audio.

There isn’t a way to connect a router directly to the Internet without a Modem.  If your modem/router has a manufacturer/model you might be able to find a password online.  If you are using a modem with a built-in router, sometimes that router can be bypassed to allow you to use your own router that can do port forwarding.

EERO and RSS

w3gwm@...
 

I have EERO connected for my cable TV. This uses it's own router that I don't have the password for. There appears to be a port I can connect toon the routr, but I can't access the router to make a port available from the WAN. 

Please note, I have not purchased the RSS yet. I think I can make it work with my Kenwood TS-480 on the LAN, but I have a problem because of the router.

I'd like to know I can establish a pathway from the LAN to the WAN before I purchase an RSS. Maybe attach another router to the internet (WAN) and connect the EERO router to it, but I'm afraid the EERO might need a Static IP address.

I talked with a technician at the cable company that supplies my internet, but he didn't seen to understand what I was trying to do, and when he finally did, he didn't know what to do.

Anybody have any ideas?

Re: IC-7610 WSJTX not working

Howard Nurse, W6HN
 

Bo, is RigPi running and controlling your radio when you are using WSJT-X?  (A RigPi browser needn’t be open, but you must Connect your radio, then you can close the browser.)  WSJT-X is originally set up to control the radio this way.  It is also possible to control your radio using Hamlib directly from WSJT-X.  If you set it up that way, I recommend you Disconnect the radio from RigPi first.  The error message you are reporting doesn’t sound like it is coming from RigPi.

Re: No audio on remote device

Hi Loic,

After making changes in Mumble settings on RigPi, click Apply then OK.  Restart Mumble to have those changes saved. The Mumble client must be running on RigPi for audio to work.

I noticed that I have to reboot Rigpi to get Mumble or Plumble (Android) to work. Anytone have a solution for this ?

Re: I hv everything working sort of. No audio out to the transmitter when using WSJT-X

Leslie Loftin
 

Al,
Don’t give up. This was not my easiest configuration in my ham or computer life, but can be done.
Open to the Rigpi desktop. I have to use VNC Viewer to remote in, as I don’t have a monitor or keyboard attached to the Rigpi.
The Rigpi will usually come up with the Mumble program running. You don’t want it. Don’t just minimize the window, but actually quit the program. (You can configure Mumble to run on boot or manually. Run on boot is the normal configuration for LSB/USB voice transmission.)
Next: When you right click on the speaker icon in the upper right of the desktop it should show the audio options.
Mine says USB Audio CODEC.
Try this, if are not already doing so.
I may not be much help, but someone out there knows what is going on.

Leslie,
I played around with it most of the day.  On WSJT-X it decodes perfectly, the PTT works as it should, but still no audio out to the transmit side.
I thought that the FT-991A would be easier to connect.  I am beginning to think this may have been a bad investment. 
I'll try again tomorrow .

Hi, Blake.

Do you have the Mumble app installed on your iPhone?

IC-7610 tuner activation

FOUND IT BY MYSELF! TOOK LOTS OF READING!

To activate the tuner change the TUNE macro from !TUNE to *G TUNE

Good afternoon.

Does anyone know how to fix no audio on your remote device? I have my iPhone connected to the RigPi remotely and I have no audio on my end.

Thanks KD2OUQ

RigPI RSS Wiki Now Available

Larry McElhiney
 

Hi Folks, 

On the left-hand sidebar, Wiki should now be available at the bottom of the list.  We've already populated it with many of the File articles and other RigPI information. 

The Wiki is set as Read Only to provide information for the membership. If you want to create or update articles there, please send the information to the Moderators

We encourage you to continue to use the Forum for questions and information sharing during your setup process.  Any completed rig Setup file can be uploaded to the Files section.  (We will create Wiki pages for these files as well.) 

Thank you,

Re: hamlib support for IC-7610

Howard Nurse, W6HN
 

Hi Bo,

Hamlib uses the same control commands (with one exception, see next paragraph) for the 7610 as for the 7300.  Hamlib doesn’t care that you are really using a 7610 when you are telling it you are using a 7300.  The only RigPi setting that needs to be changed is the CI-V code which is different for every Icom radio.  The Name field in Advanced Radio Settings can also be changed without Hamlib caring.  The name is what RigPi uses to identify the radio.  It could be called “Harry” as far as Hamlib cares.

The reason I recommended that change is because Hamlib does not yet support Power On/Power/Off commands for the 7610, but it does for the 7300.

Re: Centurylink Zyxel c1100z Modem not forwarding port 7488

Howard Nurse, W6HN
 

Hi Ken,

You probably won’t see port 7488 open unless RigPi is connected.  To confirm, you have opened 7488 to the outside world.  Your router allows you to translate from that port to another.  You have that translated port set to 80.  Public Internet<->port 7488<->your modem<->your router<->port translation in router<->port 80<->RigPi.

Re: Use of piVPN on Rigpi

Howard Nurse, W6HN
 

Hi John,

I’m not familiar with Norton VPN, but have you tried to connect to rigpi.local through it?  It shouldn’t be necessary to install another VPN.  A computer in your local network will probably have to be running in order to connect.

Use of piVPN on Rigpi

johnpierce
 

Will piVPN installed on my Rigpi work without interfering with the installation of Norton VPN on other computers on router?

John, AD2F

Re: I hv everything working sort of. No audio out to the transmitter when using WSJT-X

Leslie Loftin
 

Sounds similar to what I experienced. The first step is to make sure that Mumble is turned off, if you are trying WSJT-X. The other item that stumped me was getting the right audio codex chosen. That is not much help, but check those things.
