Re: KiwiSDR dynamic IP address

Another solution would be to have your Kiwis maintain ssh sessions with your Pi (or another server with a static IP address) and forward ports on that Pi/server back to the Kiwis port 8073 through the tunnels created by that ssh session.
For example: on the Kiwi cmd line run 'ssh -R 8073:localhost:8073 someuser@...'. Then your WD would be configured to access that Kiwi at 'someserver.net:8073'
I have attached a script which maintains such a session at one WD site. After running it once you will need to modify the wd-tunnels.conf for your environment and configure a user account on 'some_server' and set up that account to allow your Kiwi to autologin.
Of course there will be interruptions when your Kiwis change IP addresses while the current listener ssh sessions to your PI/server timeout and are re-established.
