    Hi,
    I would like to use ORP for FRN network.
    Unfortunately I do not understand svxlink, linux, but I’m trying 😉
    I transform echolink settings page to FRN settings.
    This page generated the FRN config files:
    /etc/openrepeater/svxlink/svxlink.d/ModuleFRN.conf
    But need more modificatons. Can somebody help me?

    BR,
    Tamas

    Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. I am not sure what you mean by:

    I transform echolink settings page to FRN settings.

    Can you explain this further?

    ORP does not currently attempt to write to FRN module config. I would suggest you just edit your ModuleFRN.conf file manually.

    I personally have not tried the FRN module. I am working on making a module framework to allow UI development for other modules. So perhaps you can give feed back on FRN when you get it working for a future release.

    So If I understand it correctly, from your screenshot your are using the ORP development code base? Version would be listed as “ionosphere” at the bottom of the GUI. Did you copy the Echolink folder and rename for FRN module as a template. All the settings for modules under this framework should be saved as a serialized array to the modules table in the database. I’m assuming that you’ve already figured that part out. There are controls under the Modules UI to enable/disable the module. When enabled this should write a settings into the modules DB table, when you rebuild the config ORP should add the module to the list of enabled modules in svxlink.conf file. There are also some other particular like SVXLink expects the namespace of the module files to be a certain way.

    I am not at home to look at this right now so I am going from memory. I have not experience with FRN, but I believe this is one of the provided svxlink modules. If so, I have no problem trying to help you build out a UI for it and include it in ORP. As long as the module seems stable enough to include.

    Thank you, i check svxlink.conf.
    Now i trying install the alterFRN to ORP.

    Yes, i use “IonoSphere”, this more better (database and module handling and newer svxlink), nice work! 😉
    I’m still looking for solutions my idea: I need crossband repeater with connect another gateways.
    One local server and two clients. If not access the internet, switch to local server.
    Like this project: http://picq.klicke.tk/doku.php?id=start
    Can be FRN the solution, but I look at the SvxReflector too.
    Unfortunately I grew up in windows, it’s a big challenge for me 🙂
    (20 years ago i use php and mysql it reminds me of little)

    OK, I just replied to your other post. See my notes there about the ionosphere code. Depending on how you updated it, I cannot not make any guarantees that it will fully function.

    Yes, I understand. I’ve been using Linux for a number of years, but it isn’t my native OS. Learned a lot over the years, but still more to learn.

    Tamas,
    If you were not aware, ORP 2.1.1 was release not too long ago. This has support for add on modules. I am currently working on building out a FRN module. Let me know if you’d be interested in testing it. FRN is not really used over here in the states and is likely not a good legal option for Ham Radio in the US. I am trying to get a module available for our European users since SVXLink already has the Frn code.
