Bpq32 Log options

John G8BPQ has made it possible to move the log dir of linbpq and pilinbpq. Nice

I’ve uploaded versions of linbpq and pilinbpq to my beta download site
that allow you to move the log directory. Start with a command line
parameter of logdir=directory, eg

../pilinbpq logdir=/dev/shm


You can download the new version here.


LinBPQ Applications Interface.

LinBPQ has a facility to make a tcp connection from the node to an application running on the same machine. This was originally intended to connect to a shell to enable basic configuration editing, but has been generalised to allow connects to other tcp ports, thus allowing you to write your own applications to be used with LinBPQ.

Ok, that sounds nice. Let give it a try.

Fist setup Linbpq, add de “cmdport” to the telnet port section.

I have add “CMDPORT 63000” but it can by any number.
Now we have to add some stuff to /etc/services and /etc/inetd.conf



Now restart inetd.Β sudo killall -1 inetd

I have found a small script on the internet and make some adjustments.
This script is using some perl modules that has to be installed.

The testapp.pl script. /usr/local/linbpq/testapp.pl

Now we can run the script from linbpq. Let give it a try.


LinBPQ with Winmor port.

With the help of the config file of Jerry, N9LYA and some help from John, G8BPQ I have setup a Winmor port on my Linbpq.I use a Microham USB II as soundcard device connected to my Windows PC and a direct Cat kabel from my Linux PC to control the TRX.

Here is the section for the Winmor port. (BPQ32.CFG)


Winmor Status screen from Linbpq


Tnx for the help Jerry and John.

DireWolf/Linpq with Systemd.

I have a bad time behind me, I have had a lot of arguments with Systemd to start DireWolf and Linpq when booting πŸ™‚
If you like Systemd, you can read some about it here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Systemd

I want Linbpq to run under /dev/tty2 and DireWolf under /dev/tty3. This is because if I login remotely I can view the monitor from DireWolf with “conspy”. “conspy 3” Hit esc a few times to leave conspy.

Systemd does not want to accept the start line with >/dev/tty3 &

This upper start line does not work.

So I had to come up with something else for that. So i wrote a start file. “direwolf.start”

Now i wrote a unit file to start DireWolf on boot.

Now DireWolf is starting very nice on /dev/tty3

I had the same problem with Linbpq, which I solved in the same way.

Linbpq start file “runbpq”

The unit file “linbpq.service”

Ok, let’s see if it is running

Now have a look at /dev/tty2 “conspy 2”

Jeff have made some comments about it.


Direwolf to LinBPQ config

John WQ6N has found a solution for direwolf and Linbpq that works very well for HF.




Bind bpq to ax25 interface

I’m using uronode as front end node, but i’m also like to connect to different packet software.
This time it’s linbpq. Lets go…..

First of all bpq32.cfg
Change the comport to COMPORT=/dev


Now the linbpq start file

Ok let’s look it ok now

ps ax | grep kissattach

Now have a look in bpq32.cfg

Here you see there is a PTS couple /dev/pts/16 and /dev/pts/17

So we are good to go.

The route to pi1lap-9 is there in uronode. Let’s try a connect.


Voorbeeld forward JNOS/BPQ/LinFBB

Hier onder een aantal voorbeelden hoe de configuratie van de forward in verschillende systemen in zijn werk gaat.

Thanks in particular to Bob (VE3TOK) and Gus (I0OJJ) for example configs !
