Re: AXIP Problem
- John, OK - have found what is the problem!!
We telnet to the remote XRouters with a closed Telnet connection [ie no other users can use it but me VK2DOT], on connection we type in a call sign to logon to XRouter.
This test with VK2AAL as the remote node has an ip address of eg 22.214.171.124; When the remote node starts VK2AAL's AXUDP is displayed on the BPQ32 AXIP heard as VK2AAL 126.96.36.199 at VK2DOT-1.
If we connect as, say VK2AA callsign on the remote node & then connect to VK2DOT's BBS from the VK2AAL node - then the BPQ32 AXIP heard as VK2AA 188.8.131.52 at VK2DOT-1;
or any other callsign logged in as with 184.108.40.206
If we use VK2DOT as a login, then the problems occur - we have two AXUDP callsigns with the same IP address.
As long as we don't login into the remote nodes with the VK2DOT BBS callsign, all is OK.
I can live with that.
Two XRouters connected together then connected to BPQ32, do not cause this problem.
It has just become a little niggling problem which may cause a major problem later on.
Another one solved.
Cheers & regards Rod....////

This is presently conducted from external XRouter Nodes [eg VK2AAL] to a Local XRouter node [VGK2DOT-9]; which is connected via a RS232 port to the BPQ32 Node.
