Your Kiwi must be running the v1.690 (or later) release to use the proxy service and be in the public Kiwi list (rx.kiwisdr.com, map.kiwisdr.com)

  • Yeah, so this is complete nonsense. Whenever you change the 5-item menu on the admin connect tab you are prompted to restart the Kiwi server. And when "reverse proxy" is not selected the proxy client process is not even started when the K…
  • The cases have arrived and David, ZL2BA, has been busy assembling the units. The store should open in less than a week. Everyone that emailed sales@kiwisdr.nz will receive an email reply when the store opens. It will also be announced here, on Twitt…
  • Well, that's a good question and something I think about when deciding to add features or not. Or even how to add them. I think the proposed changed are relatively simple and generic. I especially like the idea of setting a frequency range an antenn…
  • The next update is a monster though. Have trouble getting to sleep at night? Just read the next release CHANGE_LOG that’s coming.. lol

  • That was simply to encourage pre-v1.690 public Kiwis to update to lower the botnet load on the proxy service. I monitor the uptake. There are about 60 formerly public listed Kiwis left to update (out of more than 700). It drops by a few every day. J…

  • Okay, I see what's happening. This is an interesting issue. The antenna switch per-antenna "frequency scale offset" field is fighting with the frequency offset you set via the "foff=" URL parameter. You connect with an foff=12000…
  • When clicked, the page reloads and the prompt repeats so is never cleared, which isn't quite what I expected. Yeah, I see that too now. I don't know why that's broken. Will fix.. I'll try and get this stuff in the next release.
  • Not every update gets a mention in the CHANGE_LOG file. v1.689 and 690 had changes related to the botnet. Not something I really wanted/needed to talk about. If you really care go to Github and look at the details.

  • To be fair that explanation isn't written down anywhere. So unless you've been through the procedure it's not obvious.
  • All the tools to measure this are available to you. Even as a normal user connection. First, make sure you are the only connection. Turn off any autoruns etc. On the WF tab turn the waterfall off to lessen the confusion (WF rate slider = off). Selec…
  • https://forum.kiwisdr.com/index.php?p=/discussion/3096/debian-11-upgrade-for-kiwis-using-beaglebone-green-black/p1
  • So it sounds like there are use cases going both directions. Under the admin "Extensions, Antenna Switch" page there is already the ability to set the freq offset per-antenna. But it would also be nice to send an associated control command…
  • Now that the antenna switch code has been integrated it should be possible to do this. But let me understand something first. How is it that you're changing the Kiwi offset programmatically now? Because the only way I know to do that is to use the f…
  • On the admin console tab use the red "re-clone sources" button.
  • There are two types of log messages. "Debug" messages that mostly benefit me. And more general log messages that might be of interest to Kiwi admin/owners as well. The later are marked with an "L" character in the log before the …
  • Okay, so I did misunderstand. Sorry. The admin console tab always gives you a privileged root shell. Not an unprivileged one that you might get from a login to the "debian" account.
  • I'll be in v1.691 assuming we don't need that version number for another anti-botnet patch (fingers-crossed).
  • Are you asking what the syntax is for Linux shell commands you enter in the admin console window? Well, that's not a topic we can teach you about here really. If you are new to an operating system like Linux, or a Linux distribution like Debian, the…
  • This has already been fixed in the next release. Not sure when that release will be available with all the other nonsense that's going on..
  • An easy way to do this is to use the following command in the admin console tab: gr -A 1 fingerprint-2 /var/log/user.log
  • I would like to know the IP addresses associated with the Kiwi log message fingerprint-2 was denied connection. Note -2, not -3. The IP will appear in the LEAVING message just after. Do not post here. Email to support@kiwisdr.com instead. Thank you …
  • In case the botnet is using the rx.kiwisdr.com list as the source of public Kiwi IP addresses I have removed any Kiwis from that list that are not running v1.690 or later. Currently that is about 90 Kiwis (out of 750+ total). These Kiwis did not upd…
  • Addressing your two points: It was easier to leave the antenna switch admin settings in the "extensions" tab rather than move them somewhere else. Even though the code is no longer a true extension. For the same reason there is still an &q…
  • Like I have time to setup and manage such a thing, lol
  • On my test Kiwi in Europe it seems the bot may have stopped about 10 hours ago (it's now 18:55 UTC 30 Jun). This output is from running this command in the admin console: msl | grs LEAVING | gr kiwi_nc | tail -n 10 Jun 30 08:26:26 beaglebone kiwid:…
  • The antenna switch device you have selected in the old antenna switch extension should be automatically carried over. I believe the antenna descriptions and other setting should be carried over as well. You mention "and others", but I'm no…
  • I can change that. But we shouldn't be talking about specifics of the countermeasures here because, well, you never know who's reading..
  • Sorry Glenn. You stated right in your thread title "keys=yyys". So you already knew about that. The next release has a new menu on the admin config tab "Initial values" section called "Display setup". With entries like …
  • Thanks Nate. I'm apparently not only stupid but blind as well. Bug took just a few minutes to find. Will be fixed in this next big release I've been working on.
  • As mentioned by @HB9TMC the botnet will still attempt to connect to your Kiwi, and will still be logged. But is now kicked within a few seconds which will cause much less harm. So if you're running v1.689 or later and still see these log messages do…
