Ok, Im new to Linux. got my node setup and its connecting…testing it at the house before moving it to the rptr site 4 hrs away. I run a RLC Club on the rptr with preaccess turned on the main port (* precedes all commands)…want to limit ALLStar access using a different START command digit, also to prevent the RLC controller from making a match to a command intended for the ASL commands. Is there a way to do that? I have nano up and cannot figure out HOW to get to the FUNCTIONS or other files to edit them. Like I said Im a newbie…and the HOW TO leave a LOT to be desired for someone who is Windows experienced from getting things done on Linux…wish there was a STEP BY STEP for editing files (NOT just "go to this file /etc/blah blah blah…THAT doesnt help any!)…Is there such a manual or info for those of us NOT LINUX geeks??? I have opened just about every page I can find and yet its 1000x confusing trying to figure it out.
Now back to my question: Is the START digit configurable? I dont want to use * as the START digit…can I change it??
If I set up the node using the automated commands, is there ANYTHING else I need to do or is it good to go on ASL?? I have NOT edited any files (obviously…I cant figure that out…do I need to put the card holding the files back into a Windows machine and edit them or ??? Yeah this is a new thing to me and I understand SOME of it…but to get to the point where I CAN edit the files is the problem…there is NO example shown on how to access the FUNCTIONS or other Stanzas, etc…(I think I said that right…If not, well that shows my inexperience in Linux)
Thanks for any help, etc…(I hope)
