EchoHam / Finding a contact
« Last post by ve2ngq on July 08, 2016, 09:24:09 AM »
I just downloaded EchoHam V2 to my Mac Book Pro with O/S El Capitan v10:11:5

My biggest issue with EchoLink in the past and possibly with EchoHam now is that there are hundreds of listed users, links, repeaters and when you try to reach the majority there is no response. Am i doing something wrong? The only toggle that I see re on line or busy is on my software.

EchoHam / Re: Connection help for complete noob

Sorry I did not reply sooner. It looks like my spam filter ate the notification that there had been a reply. My friend has been has been unable to work on this for several days due to other pressing issues. He probably needed a break anyway as this has become very frustrating for him.

I will pass this info on to him later today and report back as soon as we have an answer.

A static IP address is not necessary but a "public" IP is. Some of the ISP nowadays use private IP's for their customers and that makes it very difficult/impossible for old protocols such as EchoLink.

As a first step I would suggest that you need to find out the "public" IP address on the Super Hub 2, post the address here (blank out the last octet with XXX for security reasons) so we can find out it is really "public".

EchoHam / Connection help for complete noob

I'm not currently an amateur radio operator but I am trying to help someone else. He is in the UK and I am in the US.Perhaps you can give us some ideas. I think he was able to verify his call sign but has ben unable to make a connection yet (even to echo test). Here is what I know so far:

1. He is using a Mac running El Capitan (OS X 10.11.5).
2, His ISP is Virgin Media running a Super Hub 2. It does not appear from what I read online that this ISP supports a static IP address on its residential internet accounts.
3. I sent him directions for setting up port forwarding on the Super Hub 2 but I am not sure he has been successful. The Virgin Media rep that he spoke to about this was less than helpful.
4. Since the ISP does not seem to support fixed IP addresses could I achieve the same result by switching his Mac settings from DHCP to DHCP with manual address? Assuming that I set a valid number would that also work?

BTW thanks for producing this program. I have been considering getting a license for a long time and the cost of good gear has been a sticking point. Running this on my computer looks like a good alternative.

Serial Tools / Suggestion: new cr/lf option
« Last post by joevt on June 17, 2016, 09:20:11 PM »
Iíve been using Serial Tools to do some kernel debugging. It works well, but thereís one feature I would like added. Currently in the Terminal view, I see some lines are double spaced, and some lines are not. This is because different routines are being used in the kernel to output lines to the serial port. One of them does only lf or cr, and the other does crlf. I would like an additional cr/lf option that treats all those combinations as cr/lf (maybe change the existing cr/lf checkbox to a popup menu to select one of the three options). It would work like this:

Code: [Select]
previousInputCharacter = '\0';

while (GetInputCharacter(&inputCharacter)) {
if (inputCharacter == cr) {
PassCharacter(cr);
PassCharacter(lf);
}
else if (inputCharacter == lf) {
if (previousInputCharacter == cr) {
// ignore lf when it is preceded by cr because we already handled that
}
else {
PassCharacter(cr);
PassCharacter(lf);
}
}
else {
PassCharacter(inputCharacter);
}
previousInputCharacter = inputCharacter;
}

This should correctly handle input that uses lf, cr, or crlf.

Another thing missing is flow control options. (xon/xoff, rts/cts, dtr/dsr)

EchoHam / Re: EchoHam V2 feature requests
« Last post by eklynx on June 09, 2016, 08:55:34 AM »
Other than the search that people have been asking for, here are my feature requests.

1) Ability to select audio input/output for communication other than system audio settings.

2) uPnP / NAT-PMP support to auto-configure router passthroughs of echo link ports.

3) Echolink Proxy support.

EchoHam does not differentiate between repeaters, links and stations.
The communication is established to the partner IP address and at that level EchoHam is not even aware of what type of station it is.

If the other station is a mobile device (e.g. iPhone, Samsung, etc) you can not establish communication due to limitations in mobile phone networks which put these devices on a private IP address. However, that is not a limitation of EchoHam but of the network infrastructure.

If you can establish a connection to the echolink test server and your transmission is echoed back to you then you can be confident that your end is working OK.
