Before we start I have been playing with Linux for over 10 years and am very linux challenged and have little to no understanding of how it works let alone fix it if it breaks, my work around to rebuild from scratch as Im very much paint by numbers guy. Im a radio tech not a computer guy Windows is about my limit.
I have now posted on 3 different forums and have now been told by 3 people how easy it is without any actual help. From my end this is very frustrating.
This is what happens
I go into the allstar sight and enable NNX, the moment I do this I loose my node number, so my portable node becomes useless.
Next I change the primary node number in the Pi .
Then go back in and try and connect the node to another node that i would normally connect to,…nothing no super mon and unable to login.
So I edited the almon.ini file and attempt to reconnect, this time i can see the node number change but still useless and unable to do anything to control the node.
I cannot see that it is connected to the server in all star although it is highlighted in green does not give me any indications if it is connected or working.
After many hours for the second time and I gave up in disgust, and returned the node back to the way it was originally and went into the allstar link system delete the NNX number and get back the original number and bingo my node burst back into life and all is well.
Doug said there is a how to in the web site but but I have trolled through the how to’s for this for over an hour and can find no reference to NNX.
Someone else said just do a search and this will pick up my node numbers? how??
So the only way I can see to get around this is to use a borrowed callsign and go in and set up another account and I think this might be the best work around under the circumstances.
If you think you you might be able to explain how to get NNX installed I would greatly appreciate it but at the same time I dont want to waste your time either, as I can create a new account to get around this.
Kind regards Kerry
