KiwiSDR not starting

edited June 28 in Problems and Issues

Hi folks,

my Kiwi was running for years now. But since the last days it is not booting up anymore.

When sending a ping i can see that some pings are answered others not. I don't have access via putty or the web interface anymore.

What may be the reason and how to solve the problem?

Sorry, did put it to the wrong category


  • Meanwhile the ping is working ok and i can log in via SSH.

    But i have no aaccess with the web bowser. The answer is " connection refused".

    Hi Roland.

    First, try rebooting the Kiwi completely from ssh. Especially if the uptime command says it's been up for more than 100 days. Use the reboot command.

    After a reboot wait a few minutes then try this to see if the Kiwi server is running:

    ps ax | grep kiwid

    You should see something like:

    11605 ?    R   1:22 /usr/local/bin/kiwid -use_spidev 1 -bg -v 1.609

    Do these commands and make sure they don't show any errors:




    Also, please do this and email the output to



    msl | tail -n 1000

  • @DF3LZ Roland, were you able to get it working? We never received an email from you.
