EchoHam 2.13 Connection Issues

(1/4) > >>

Hello, I'm currently trying to use EchoHam 2.13  with MacOs 10.11.6 El Capitan.
I've registered with EchoLink and received confirmation. I can use the Android version on my tablet happily.

I start EchoHam and it downloads the callsign list, but I cannot connect to any repeater, link or callsign.

I've opened up ports 5198-99 on my router and forwarded them to my Mac (which has a static i.p)
I've created a Port Triggering with 5200 to open 5198-99.
I added EchoHam to the mac Firewall to allow incoming connections, and even tried with the firewall turned off.

I still cannot get EchoHam to connect to any repeater, link or callsign.

In the /applications/utilities/console app doing a search for EchoHam i get:

09/07/2020 18:16:42.974 EchoHam[4423]: EchoHam.EHPortmapping.startUPNPadd() - Unable to bind to upnp port 1900: Error Domain=NSPOSIXErrorDomain Code=48 "Address already in use" UserInfo={NSLocalizedDescription=Address already in use, NSLocalizedFailureReason=Error in bind() function}

09/07/2020 18:16:53.135 EchoHam[4423]: -[EHControlConnection _connectRemoteHost:] - timer started

any help would be greatly appreciated.

cheers Phil

Hi Phil,
could you please advise your call sign so I can do some diagnostics from this end.



My callsign is M7PHX

Thanks very much for your help



Hi Phil,
the console messages indicate that you have another application running which is hogging port 1900.
Do you have anything uPnP related installed?
Do you get the same console messages if run EchoHam straight after a reboot?
Any possibility that you have other software which could block EchoHam from port 1900?

Hello, thanks for getting back to me. Unfortunately the same thing happens when I reboot. Also if I disable Upnp in Echoham it doesn't connect either. I can't find what's blocking port 1900. If I use netstat in the terminal and search for 1900 I get nothing?
