Re: Help setting up RMS Gateway? #draws #rms

You may have a file permissions problem in the /usr/local/etc/rmsgw
directory. Verify by sending me the console output of:

ls -sal /usr/local/etc/rmsgw

You can solve the problem by running a new script.
# First fix your local git repo

cd
sudo su
chown -R pi:pi n7nix

# Now get the new script

exit
cd
cd n7nix
git pull

# Now run a script that should fix your problem.

cd rmsgw
sudo su
./grouptest.sh

# Verify that the permissions on files in the /usr/local/etc/rmsgw
directory are correct.

ls -sal /usr/local/etc/rmsgw

# And finally test with rmschanstat

sudo -u rmsgw rmschanstat ax25 udr0 N0CSM-10

Please send me all the console output from all of the above commands plus new
entries in file: /var/log/rms.debug

Basil,
Yes on the gateway request, I've had a gateway running (RMS Packet on a Windows machine) for a little over a year. If I have that running on the windows box while I'm setting this up on the DRAWS, could that be a part of the problem? They are using different radios and antennas so no conflict there.

I checked and rechecked the entries in the files as you recommended and they were correct. Rebooted the Pi and checked things again with no change.

I made a new image and started the entire config process over (I'm getting good at it now). The results changed just a little.

AX.25 status shows all running and enabled.

tail -f /var/log/rms.debug results are a little different but the last line still suggests something is wrong. I've verified and double checked the PW and other information entered and it is correct. Here are the results
