Re: On going issue with the draw and RMS-Gateway

Basil Gunn

I have been running into issues with this gateway,

The RF side is sound. good power out and hardly any thing noticeably
reflected. The draw is on a raspberry pi3B+. The radio is a TM-G707.
The setup is RMS Gateway. folks can connect and send a simple message
to one or two users. Even a lengthy message to one or two users. They
can't get a message via radio from a group of users i.e. Winlink
Winlink Wednesday??
Send me the list of users in group 'Winlink Wednesday'

Send me the message that they are trying to send to my regular email.
How many members in the group of users? What Winlink client are they
using? Does the message fail for ALL users?
Probably should post this problem to the LinuxRMS group.

Turn on DEBUG for RMSGW by editing this file: /etc/rmsgw/gateway.conf
and setting the log mask.


then reboot.

after you see the problem send me the /var/log/rms.debug file.

I need packet spy output of session (listen -a) for the failure case.

You also may have some dicey ax.25 parameters.
Run this script and send me the output.

What is the call sign of your RMS Gateway so I can check on the Winlink

The message is loaded with recipients and fails to complete after
about a quarter to half of the way through the message. Another
message type that will fail is if you have any attachments to a
message. it doesn't matter inbound or outbound. The use of forms for
the most part work but I have seen failures there too.
If I run a bug report this is what I see. I have been digging into
log files and trying to figure this out without success. The end users
are a mix of windows users with winlink-express and linux users
running Pat.
