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.
