  • What is the status of the WSPR background and autostart features? [added in v1.181]

    Sorry (for those of you old enough: )
    Fix coming later today.

  • Kiwi Offline Due To CGNAT

    Hi Mark,

    This is a common problem, so you're in good company. I have emailed you two API keys for your Kiwis. Just enter them in the appropriate place on the connect tab of the admin page with the hostnames of your choice (presumably "emeraldsdr" and "emeraldsdr1"). Make sure to change the menu item at the top of the page to say "reverse proxy". Then use the restart button on the admin control tab.

    The DDNS becomes irrelevant when using the proxy. Your hostnames will be emeraldsdr[1].proxy.kiwisdr.com:8073 (note: always 8073)

  • DANGER: DO NOT do a manual Debian/Linux upgrade to your Kiwi! (update: but it's okay now)

    So it appears the Debian project and Beaglebone.org have stopped making updates to the Debian 8 (Jessie) release. For the Beagle, Debian 8.11 seems to be the last release. It has been run by a number of customers for a long time and also by us. So it seems safe now for Kiwi owners generally to do an upgrade and get the benefit of whatever security patches there have been between 8.5 and 8.11.

    To do this login as root using ssh/PuTTY and use the following commands. (this can not be done from the Kiwi admin console tab)
    If you haven't logged in this way in a while remember that your Debian root password has likely been changed to either the Kiwi admin password or the Kiwi's serial number if no Kiwi admin password has been set. The Debian root password has not been touched if you had set it to something other than the default of having no password.
    See this post for details: http://forum.kiwisdr.com/discussion/1801/v1-354-security-improvements-debian-root-password-no-longer-unset-blank

    mst      (stops the Kiwi server)
    cd
    pkup     (shell alias for "apt-get -y install debian-archive-keyring; apt-get update")
    pkug     (shell alias for "apt-get -y dist-upgrade")
    
    (lots of output, takes roughly 10 minutes)
    
    reboot
    
    A few minutes after the reboot the Kiwi server should be responding again. If you login to the Beagle and type the "dog" command you should see:
    Debian 8.11
    BeagleBoard.org Debian Image 2016-05-13
    Linux kiwisdr 4.4.9-ti-r25 #1 SMP Thu May 5 23:08:13 UTC 2016 armv7l GNU/Linux
    
    There is still the open question of how the Kiwi distribution, and thousands of Kiwi customers, will migrate to the current Debian 9 (Stretch) and/or Debian 10 (Buster) releases which are available for the Beagle. This needs time for research as there are many issues involved.

  • Kiwi un-registration not working?

    Okay, I see what's happening. The change back in January to separate kiwisdr.com and sdr.hu registration is not fully reflected in the status code transmitted to update rx.kiwisdr.com. So the 15 minute response time won't apply in all cases. Rather, your listing will be removed after three days by the "inactivity" timeout. I have reduced this inactivity timeout to three hours instead. So your listings are now gone..
