I see that the sdr has a voltage regulator on board. Does the sdr use a combination of 5v / 3.3v for power or is it completly 3.3v powered? I'm curious of the max and min acceptible voltage for the sdr. I have just used my 5v usb battery based phone charger with sucess but I'd feel more comfortable knowing and monitoring the voltage going to the sdr to make sure it is within acceptible parameters. So the question is: 5v +/- what? Thanks.

I was more or less forced to change provider and now having a hard time to get my client to work...
Not sure if my server works either, it do shows up on map but seems unable to get the UDP stream to run. Now it seems my new provider are going over to IPv6, and not sure if my problems are related to this??

Maybe it is my router (D-Link 615) that is not up to the new protocol?

Remember there were some utilities to see if port was open, if I use any of the web-based test sites I see my 8014-8019 beeing closed, but guess I need an application to answer the requests, hence looking for the program to run on computer.

Any help would be appreciated.

And yes running local network will allow UDP stream and I have tried to disable all "protection" i.e. firewalls.

Sorry if I have been hitting some servers repeatedly but it is hard to try get this running. Arrgh!

Hi Lasse, Guido --

you might also try this:

if you google for "how to open ports using upnp howtogeek" you'll find an article teaching how to redirect the ports in a somewhat easy way.

Basically, you'll configure your router like this: "dear router, whenever you see traffic UDP port 8014-8019, please, immediately forward it to my PC at IP x.y.z.w".

The UPNP is a protocol that allows one to do this kind of configuration without having to fiddle with the router internals...

Somehow I did suspect IPv6 to cause problems...
So far it seems I do show one IP to the world (176.10.249.229), but my
router gets a shared address in a Service Provider network, and I bet
this is all due to translation to new standards.

Using the suggested tools I am not able to see any open port that I can
use for Perseus.

Earlier today I did try to contact the tech support and asked about
blocked ports. I'll wait and see what they reply, or try a phone call.
Last resort may be to change internet provider, the old one did annouce
a price rise of 25% for all old customers but still showed the old price
for new custormers:

Will be interesting to see what will come out of this:

Lasse,

one alternative would be hire a VPN provider for you. You can then have one IP for you, with whatever ports open. You can even select which country the VPN will exchange traffic with the Internet (useful to circumvent any boring per country blocking).

Huelbe,
thanks for the help!
The router is/was configured properly and the s/w firewall all set up.
Perseus client was running smooth on all my computers in the house, but
I had to change internet provider, and suddenly nothing works.

So it seems my provider is doing some odd routing/blocking. I will
contact support asap and try to get this problem sorted out.

Cheers

Good news!
Got response from service centre and they changed my settings to public IP, and voila all back to "normal"!
So sorry if a few servers were hit by me trying to get the UDP-stream running, seems some even did black list me :(

Oh well good to see it is working now!

Have you tried those servers more than once ? It happens often that you get
this message the first try but when trying again you're going through. Must
be some kind of response delay issue in the software.
