Small BUG in uronode 2.9

Mario YO2LOJ has found a small bug in the source code of UROnode.

Thanks to Marius YO2LOJ for a patch in do_ports within command.c where there is a possibility that the interface count may return NULL and the function will generate an exception in libc for the routine causing the node to segment fault out and disconnect the user from the node.

To patch the bug you need to edit the command.c in the source code of UROnode.
On line 398 you will find this line.

You have to replace it with this.

After that you can recompile the source.

Or you can download a complet command.c here.

Uronode nodesearch 2.2 released

Brian N1URO has released a new version of Nodesearch 2.2

Change is that now users can search a netrom node
by alias. This idea was taken from a recent change in JNOS. Ex:

Which node are you looking for (no * please): NOS
Searching NetRom nodes for NOS …
NodeSearch v2.2 by N1URO for URONode.

For now it’s only on the ftp server of N1URO

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.

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.


URONode ipv6 ready

URONode van Brian N1URO is ipv6 ready.
Dit wou ik natuurlijk even uitproberen. Nu was ik nog niet zo veel met ipv6 bezig geweest dus het was even uitzoeken hoe het moest. Het viel allemaal wel weer mee 🙂

Eerst moet de nieuwste versie van uronode geïnstalleerd worden (versie 2.7)
Verder moet er een regel aangepast worden in /etc/inetd.conf

Hier onder hebben we de (tcp6) toegevoegd. kill -HUP inetd

Maak je gebruikt van xinetd, dan ziet het er zo uit.

Hier wordt de “flags = IPv6” toegevoegd.

Nu moest ik nog wat aanpassingen doen aan me router en firewall om het werkend te krijgen. Dit is natuurlijk voor een ieder verschillend.
Verder heb ik bij me hosting provider nog een AAAA record aan gemaakt in de DNS server zodat je dat langen ipv6 adres niet hoeft te onthouden.
Nu wordt het pi1lap.packet-radio.net mooi omgezet naar een ipv6 adres  2a02:f6d:2d:0:212:3fff:fe2b:c66f

Werkt dus uit de kunst.
