3968Re: Remote SysOp
- Oct 3, 2010John,
RESTART - Will only be used after we update BPQ32.cfg, BPQTelnetServer.cfg or BPQAXIP.cfg, etc - to quickly update BPQ32 [as we do now from the local console. If we are adding other remote software, etc at a later date - then if we have to restart the said software, then we will reboot the remote laptop.
REBOOT - Will be used if we update BPQ32.exe, etc software, or there is a dramatic problem with the remote laptop that requires rebooting.
The remote laptops [being soak tested at present] are running Windows MicroXP as the operating system; MicroXP runs well on a 233Mhz laptop with 64Mb of memory & 800Mb of mass-storage.
We also run FileZiller Server as the FTP server. [XRouter has FTP built in - but we have not asked for a FTP server to be incorporated at this time - to not burden you with extra work.]
We also run StartDelay software to start FileZiller & BPQ32 after the operating system has started.
The remote nodes are over 100Km away from VK2DOT and not in the precint of each other. We have never had a problem so far with remote users using the same call-signs as local users for packet applications. [This system has been running for a number of years.] The users use RF at their remote node & also login locally via telnet.
Thanks again, Regards rod....///
