Re: SD card backup process

Just go to accessories on the rigpi raspberry pi and use the sd card copier.

You can't just copy the card. You need an imager. In Linux you just
use the "dd" program which does a low-level byte by byte copy.

Do a search on you tube and you'll find a bunch of examples. You can
use a larger card.

Actually my plan would be use the copy and leave the supplied image untouched. Is there a reason not to do that? If I can do that, can the new card be larger than 16GB? Is there any advantage to a larger card?

Put the new sd card (I would use 32g) into a card reader and plug it into one of the usb slots. The use the program already on the raspberry pi. You will have a bootable backup

CAT connection TS850 - Rigpi

Mario Aviles
 

Hi

I have been trying to connect my TS850 to Rigpi using a USB level converter with no luck. This setup works fine with flrig. Any ideas?

I’m guessing that your radio is working with RigPi. If so, go into Settings>Advanced Radio and click on the Test Radio button. Does it show USB1 as mine shows USB0? How about Port From Settings listed above that?

Mumble should automatically load. You should see all with the LAN Ip

Thanks. That just brings me to the RSS. Been there since day 1. Need to configure audio now. But I'm in with VNC now so figuring that out.

"... No thanks we will stay with something easier..."

If I knew of something easier, I'd probably try it too!

I tried getting my Flex working with Smartlink, but I have Internet Issues (forwarding) so easy things become difficult. 
Hoped Rigpi would conquer, but not so far.   Took to friends where Smartlink worked but internet was too slow (Frontier DSL) - hoping the
RigPi will conquer there since Smart SDR takes so much bandwidth.

VPNs are, in my opinion, clunky, in the Drop Your Call Into a Pile-up sense. 

So what would be an easier alternative?

Thanks for replying, however, I know the IP address. That's not the problem. Just don't know what to use to access the RPi desktop. I've tried Remote Desktop to no avail. I can get Mumble to connect, but it doesnt like passwords. Probably need to set up account from the desktop ;-)

Hi Larry

All I need to do, now, is to get Mumble to work as well 👍🏻

Re: Connecting to RigPi Desktop via WiFi

OK, making progress, I think. I've figured out from message threads here, that VNC Viewer is the answer, at least initially. However I don't seem to have a valid user name/password :-( Admin, blank doesn't work, nor the user name/password I used when I first set it up. That does work to access the rig controller. Any suggestions for the VNC password?

I could not find AnyDesk on the repository ...... but then, straight afterwards, the VNC server started working! How odd? I guess it must have been the reboot of the RigPi that did it?

So I am currently using VNC Viewer to run the system (albeit still indoors) & have the 'local' iPhone Mumble working as well.
So I guess my next move is to try and get the sound from the RigPi, via VNC Viewer, coming through the VNC :-)

This has been fun getting it to work, but it keeps the brain active.

Re: Connecting to RigPi Desktop via WiFi

You need to find the LAN IP address of the RigiPi. Go into your router and you will see what is attached. The router address is usually 192.168.0.1 or 192.268.1.1 You need the router password. Once you have the IP address the punch it into your web browser. The Rigpi will pop up. You will the be able to configure the mumble.

I use AnyDesk only to configure if necessary. I use the WAN address when remote to the rigpi radio page.

Hi Larry

Thanks. I will try that shortly.

I have used TeamViewer in the past, so I guess this is similar 👍🏻

So you don’t use the web browser on your external tablet or phone, then, but you directly control the RigPi via Anydesk?

Cheers
