OK, I’ve been having problems with setting AllStar. I had a working
link till it died about a month ago. I replaced the PI and SD card
and started a new install. I’ve run into multiple problems on the way.
In the setup script, I didn’t notice that the demo node no. 19999
didn’t erase as I typed my node no. 28674. After setup,it wouldn’t
login to the Allstar server. I checked the config files and found
the node no was 1999928674. OK, now rerun the setup script.
Still no luck. On further examination, the node no was now
28767428674. OK, reburn the SD card and start over.
Now we get to the setup screen for the network. I select
static IP. I enter my IP 192.168.0.100. Now the netmask,
255.255.255.000. ERROR, bad entry. Now instead of
looping back and asking again, the setup exits the network
setup screen. Worse yet, reruning the asl-menu doesn’t
enter the network setup screen. Reburn the SD card and
try again. Next time try netmask of 255.255.255.128,
no go. Reburn SD try again. This time try 255.255.255.192 ,
yea, this works, but afterwards Allstar doesn’t because
192.168.0.100 can’t be reached with this mask. OK, I
finally manually edit the dhcpcd.conf file and get the
internet access working and am logged into the
Allstar server. I’ve setup the EchoLink also.
The last problem is no one can connect to the
EchoLink node. I would like someone to test
the Allstar link and the Echolink node, 745361.
Also, I had to use the alternate AllStar port of 4566
since I have AT&T and they blocked 4569.
Any help would be appreciated.
