EchoHam / Re: Connection Issues
« on: April 18, 2016, 01:45:55 AM »
OK, thanks for the insight.  I watched a couple of the YouTube videos, and I went into the admin screen for my router.  I found the port forwarding tab, but I didn't edit anything yet.  Additionally, I have a modem that is separate from my router.  The video I watched said that I might have to port forward in the modem as well as the router.  I also have the problem of watching these tutorials that are showing screen shots on Windows machines.  I then have to look at somewhat different views on my Mac so I can't follow cookbook style instructions.  I actually have to think about what I'm doing.  I will get there eventually, perhaps with a little help from my "hams running Macs" friends.  Once again, thanks for pointing me in the right direction.

EchoMac is still installed, however it does sort of the same thing.  It loads the repeater list.  I click on Echotest or a repeater; it says connecting.  It displays a server such as, "ECHOEC2-3: Herndon, VA USA."  Then apparently something times out.  It disconnects without ever having achieved connection to the destination.

The router is a ZyXEL.  If it has a firewall its news to me.  The only firewall that I have that I know of is in my MacBook.  I have EchoHam and EchoMac listed on my exception list on the firewall screen.  My iPad will connect through my router to the echo link system so I think my router and modem are working OK.

EchoHam / Connection Issues

Downloaded V 2 today to my MacBook Pro running El Capitan.  I previously had EchoHam V 1 and EchoMac installed.  They used to work well.  With V 2, if I click on Server it loads a list, but when I click on a server, such as Echotest, and then click on connect the screen says, "connecting," then says, "disconnected" a few seconds later.  I tried a couple of repeaters and the Echlink test server.  They all start to connect, then disconnect.

I tried deleting EchoHam from my firewall permission list; then I reinstalled it on the list.  Still no connections.  What to do?

EchoHam / Re: EchoHam V2 - looking for beta testers

I use Echolink with my iPhone about 5 days/week.  I'd like to use my MacBook Pro with El Capitan.  I'll do beta testing.
