2647BPQ in Linux
- Dec 30, 2009Just thought I'd drop a line to the group. After some discussion with John G8BPQ I installed BPQ32 and BPQMAILCHAT on my Linux box running Ubuntu 9.10 and WINE 1.1
The actual installation was trivial and I was able to get the system running over my in-house LAN here without too much difficulty. I had to do a bit of dancing with the router and ports etc but all in all getting the system to run a AXUDP link was quite easy.
John reports similar results.
I have yet to get the KISS port running but that is a LINUX problem I think or more properly, my limited expertise in Linux, I am far from being a Linux Guru.
I have limited the spread of the NODE listing since it is not on all the time. But if you connect to my NODE VE3UIL-7 you will see it there if it is on the air. I am using the Call VE3TRA.
I hope to get around to getting the KISS port running and have it on the air some time in the near future.
