Re: configuring thebridge .52
- I can't tell from your message if you have multiple PUBLIC IP
addresses or not. If not you *can not* run more than one program
that speaks the EchoLink protocol at a time (either tbd or EchoLink).
If you do then you need to set the Bind2IP configuration variable to
insure that thebridge is using a different IP address than your
EchoLink client or other copies of thebridge.
That having been said the sample configuration file shipped with
thebridge is known to work with only changes to the callsign,
password and working directory variables. If the working directory
is wrong you'll get an error message so clearly that's not the
p.s. I seldom read this group, please fell free to send me email at
the email address at the end of thebridge's README file.
