Topic : Help sharing internet from Node A to B

So i have 3 WRT54G devices flashed and running, all seeing each other. The question I have is now I am reading and trying to share the internet from node A at my router to node B in my bedroom for testing in the same house. I did check "mesh gateway" at node A at the router, reset, but still the same result. I did see some forums about port forwarding on node A? but what steps am I missing? I tried for the heck of it forwarding port 80 on node A at the router, of course it did no good.  Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Feel free to also email me some info at admin@hamradioconcepts.com

Topic : Linksys and Ubiquiti hardware not cooperating

I now have two nodes set up, one on Linksys hardware (node 1) and one on Ubiquiti hardware (node 2).  Node 1 displays Node 2 status fine.  Node 2 can see Node 1 but is unable to display Node 1 status.  Both are running freshly downloaded firmware 3.1.0.  Plenty of signal strength since both nodes are in same room.  I also installed HamChat on both nodes and have one-way transmission at best.  Anything I should check or try?

Subject :Seeking advice on a high gain antenna for WRT54GL / Target is 8km away.

Wizards,

I have a peek-a-boo view to a tower 8KM away.  I've been wrestling over what antenna to buy for use with my WRT54GL.  I'm worried about the distance.  I'm worried about the power output.  Do these little routers provide enough juice to drive a high gain antenna?

Thanks,

Dave R

Topic : Looking for nodes near Walnut Creek Park


I’m on the south side of Walnut Creek Park, and have a GSv2 in the mail, along with some cheapo “25dB gain” 2.4 GHz Yagis from eBay (we’ll see if they work or not), and was wondering if there’s anyone near the area to connect to.  I tried using the Google map on this site, but it looks like some of the nodes shown which would be nearby may not be there any longer.  Thanks for any info!

As big as the map is now (1700+ nodes), yes, it takes a few seconds to regenerate. Also, you may need to clear your browser cache to pick up the latest changes (depending on browser). 73 & Happy Meshing Jim

[RESOLVED] Nevermind, it finally showed up. Apparently there is some delay in adding your node once you post it.

If you don't have two nodes running the service does not show.

Topic : Getting HamChat to show as advertised service

HamChat is installed and working on my WRT54G router running firmware version 3.1.0.  I have tried to make in an advertised service using Setup then Port Forwarding, DHCP, and Services.  After adding the url, saving changes, and rebooting the router, HamChat does not show as an advertised service.  I have tested the url by entering it directly into the browser address bar, and it works fine.

Any thoughts on other things to try or check?

Many thanks,

Topic : "Get on Map" not working

I can't seem to get on the map using the "Online Form" in the "Get on the Map" link. I submit my coordinates and information, the it pauses for a few seconds, and goes to a map of the nodes but I'm not there. 

http://www.hsmm-mesh.org/googlemapped-mesh-nodes.html

The instructions are not clear enough as to how enter the information. Can someone give me some insight as to what I may be doing wrong?

Regards,

Topic : Tunnel install question

Hello all,

Im fairly new the the mesh world and am having issues with the tunnel setup. I have two routers ones a v2.2 and the other is a v3. After an hour of playing around, an Elmer, and some help from youtube I managed to get ssh going with puttygen. I got the wget script and the bash scripts to run and after a reboot i see the server on one of the routers and the client on another. However when I click on the link it gives me a vpn software needs to be installed page. Did I forget to do somthing on my end?


Thank you for all your help.

Hello, I have a web server on the network sitting behind a mesh node B with a LAN address of 10.x.x.x (illustration)...

How can I access the web server interface (apache2) from another node ?

Topic : VTUN Tunneling

I've used this fix twice and it worked great. Today I picked up a WRT54GS V2. I added the tunnel client, tried it. It failed to connect to the server. I added the Hotplug fix. Tried it again. Still fails to connect to the Server. I have 2 active clients but this new GS V2 won't connect. Any ideas? Mike N9MS

Topic : Port forwarding is not actually opening the ports

Hello All, 

Short story is I have two Linksys routers (54G and 54GS) flashed with HSMM, HamChat and IRC loaded on the 54GS and that is connected to my home lan.  When I setup port forwarding, it doesn't open the ports from the wan link into the mesh.  Maybe I'm misunderstanding what it is supposed to be doing?

Longer story, I have the 54GS assigned an IP on my lan and I can get to the 8080 setup pages and such from my lan.  That works fine.  I can ssh through the lan to get into the box fine.  But, if I try to, for instance use HexChat to open the IRC on the router, I get connection refused and that is even when I enable the port fowarding from wan 6667 to localnode 6667.

I found a workaround of sorts.  If I edit the /etc/config/firewall.user file and add:

    iptables -A input_wan -p tcp --dport 6667 -j ACCEPT

    iptables -A input_wan -p udp -dport 6667 -j ACCEPT

Then bounce the firewall with /etc/init.d/firewall restart, it then works perfectly.  

Now why did I say it's a workaround of sorts?  Because the next time I hit save on the setup screen to add a new advertised service or something, it overwrites the firewall.user file and those changes are lost.  drat!

So, anyone know why the ports don't seem to be opening from the lan through the wan port when I use the port forwarding?  I have not tried setting it up as lan instead of 5 host direct but that might be my next attempt.

Topic : A couple of nodes up in Cumming, GA

Since the last post here was 2015, I'm not expecting any responses.  Just posting for someone to find if they are looking in the same place as me. 

I'm playing around with a couple of nodes up in the Cumming area.  Have no idea what I might do with them, but they are talking and one has my QSL card linked as a website service.  No fancy antennas as of yet so basically only as good to the road from the house.  Something new to play with anyhow.

If you're in the area, give me a shout.

73,

Topic : Why only HAM use?

There is a precedence of millions of linux computers, many used in commercial environments, with a wifi card and firmware that is not released by the manufacture. The FCC supports this -- see this reference:

https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2016/08/fcc-settlement-requires-tp-link-support-3rd-party-firmware

These Linux devices include the OpenWRT and DD-WRT communities and any linux desktop/server with, e.g. many Qualcomm-Atheros wireless chipsets. While the manufacturer contributed to the open source driver, it is modified and released by the open source community.

See this reference on how linux deals with this: http://wiki.prplfoundation.org/wiki/Complying_with_FCC_rules_on_Wifi

Exerts here (in context that BBHN and AREDN are both based on OpenWRT):

Does this requirement apply to OpenWrt itself?

No, not directly. The FCC regulates devices which produce radio waves. The software, by itself, does not produce radio wave therefore software, open source or not, is not regulated by the FCC. That said, the mechanism for controlling transmission characteristics in order to comply with regulatory requirements could be implemented in software, and in the case of Linux is implemented in software. This mechanism would be considered part of the device for regulatory purposes.

So if it doesn't apply to OpenWrt itself, why is this an issue to OpenWrt?

The growth and quality of OpenWrt, like most open source software, is dependent on the ability of the community to innovate. As part of this, users need to guarantee their modifications work as anticipated. If routers software is locked down completely, there's no way for an individual to install their modified software on their own, personally-purchased router. This lead to a situation where the community can't participate and neutralizes many of the benefits of manufacturers using open source software. This is to say nothing of the fact that users wouldn't be able to use their own devices as they see fit.
