No longer see pi-star on APRS.fi
« on: May 09, 2020, 11:00:30 am »
Hi,

My pi-star no longer is displayed on APRS.fi.  It stopped displaying 32 days ago.

I can't remember what I changed 32 days ago, but it may have been when I moved from the Brandmeister to TGIF network.

My hotspot is a ZUMspot and the APRS host is Texas.aprs2.net.  I've tried other hosts with no success.

Iím able to monitor and transmit successfully on the TGIF network, so the Zumspot is still working fine.  Also, I see other digipeaters listed in my area that are using pi-star, so these are still reporting.

Has anybody else seen this?

Thanks,
Kelly

For me, one of the settings had gotten turned off.  I believe it was under expert settings somewhere in the IRcDDBGateway section, possibly the setting "aprsEnabled."

Setting it from 0 to 1 restored the functionality.  Not sure what turned it off.

Thanks for the reply :-)

I should have mentioned that I checked that also under ircddbgateway.  APRS is enabled there.

The APRSport is 14580.  I wonder if that is correct.

What APRS server are you using?

Port number looks good: 14580

Using noam.aprs2.net as the aprsHostname.

It might be worth going through the rest of the (relevant) settings one by one to insure that none have changed.   Maybe the aprsPassword and other APRS geographic/server specific ones?
