Flexd and uronode

I had some problems getting the flexnet destinations in uronode. Xnet node is running with various flexnet links. Now I also want uronode to know these flexnet destinations. There appears to be a small secret in the “prompt” that flexd expects. I had a prompt “pi1lap ==>” That is not what flexd expected. Flexd expects a prompt “=>” So now I had to adjust the Xnet prompt to the expectations of flexd. (Tnx Brian n1uro for the hint)
Maybe the “pi1lap =>” prompt will work, I have to test that

There is also something with the buffer size of flexd. See the README.flexd in the source dir.

Okay so how muts frames i have, let’s have a look

That are 2 frames. I had to set the buffer size to 256 and recompile flexd.c

Also i have made a change to line 277. Also change to 256 buffer size

Setup flexd.conf

The prompt for Xnet

Let’s give it a try.


Yes, all looks okay.

The flexnet destinations are saved in “/usr/local/var/ax25/flex” on a debian wheezy system.
