EchoHam / EchoHam V2.13 released
« on: June 29, 2020, 11:00:52 AM »
A few more improvements to make network debugging easier.
The port checking facility now tests for two different scenarios:
1) EchoHam connecting to another station (Outgoing Connection)
2) Another station connecting to EchoHam (Incoming connection)
Most modern routers will support outgoing connections without any special requirements.
Incoming connection pose more of a challenge and need port forwarding to be functioning correctly.

As of V2.13 the Port Check user alert will report separately on Incoming and Outgoing connections to enable better network diagnostics.

includes a number of connectivity improvements and tries to automatically configure your router for port forwarding.
The proxy server option is now implemented but at this stage you have to manually enter proxy server details.
In the near future I will include and automatic selection for public proxy servers.

EchoHam / EchoHam V2.12 released
« on: June 25, 2020, 09:22:14 AM »
V2.12 is now in the AppStore
the main improvement is the addition of NAT-PMP protocol to establish port forwarding.
NAT-PMP is very popular in Apple devices.

EchoHam / EchoHam V2.10 / V2.11 released
« on: June 21, 2020, 10:18:46 PM »
V2.10 improvements:
- uPnP based automatic port forwarding
- tested on macOS 10.15 Catalina
- station connection progress indicator
- reliability improvements and bug fixes

Unfortunately a bug crashed EchoHam when the user connects to another station.
V2.11 was released within 24hrs to fix this bug.

EchoHam / EchoHam port forwarding update
« on: June 21, 2020, 10:15:35 PM »
As of V2.10 EchoHam uses uPnP (Universal Plug N Play) to automatically establish port forwarding on routers.
I hope this improvement makes it easier for everyone to get the right ports forwarded to correct IP address.
It also allows for multiple computers on the same network to have EchoHam installed as long as only one is running EchoHam at any time.
As of V2.12 EchoHam also utilises NAT-PMP for port forwarding. This feature is very popular on Apple devices.

Hi Roger,
while connected to the Echolink Servers Preferences are not available.
Disconnect from Echolink Servers by clicking the left most icon in the toolbar.
Once disconnected the Preferences symbol will become available.

EchoHam / Re: color coding
« on: February 11, 2020, 01:37:47 PM »
A station will appear with orange colour background when it reports its status as "Busy".

What makes a station appear as busy depends on the application used by the operator.
In EchoHam you can use the status icon in the Toolbar to change your own station status between Busy and Free.

A "REAL IP" is a prerequisite at this stage.
However, a proxy server solution is in the making.
Unfortunately I can't provide a release date at this point in time.

Thanks James, that's a very detailed report. I'm still not ready to go to Catalina as I would loose a number of incompatible apps.

EchoHam / EchoHam on macOS 10.15 (Catalina)
« on: October 17, 2019, 11:28:14 AM »
With the release of macOS 10.15 Apple have made a lot of major changes some of which may affect EchoHam.
I have received one report of connection issues under Catalina, however, I'm unable to confirm this or run tests myself since I won't upgrade [to 10.15] until after the first bunch of bug fixes are released.
If anyone can provide reports of EchoHam working (or not) under Catalina I would appreciate it.

EchoHam / What is EchoHam "Port Check"
« on: June 30, 2019, 09:11:24 AM »
EchoHam V2.07 has automatic port checking.
This check is carried out once when the program starts, it sends a UDP data packet to an echo server (over the internet) and expected the same data packet to be received back on port 5198 and 5199. With a correctly configured router and firewall, these return packets will arrive at the Application without much delay.
However, if the packets are not getting back within 10 seconds the user will be presented with an warning window outlining that an Echolink connection is not possible.

If you experience this scenario please check your router and firewall configuration, it is the most likely culprit causing the type of problem.

EchoHam V2.07 has improved Microphone access detection. It will provide a warning message to the operator if Microphone access is not available.
