Here's how I've come to this conclusion:Stupid question (mostly because I see that later in your message you show ax25d as listening via netstat): Did you start ax25d as root? You need root access in order to access the ax.25 ports. That keeps biting Xastir users who have to set the executable as SUID Root before it's able to open those ports. Running Xastir as the root user is a bad idea so we drop privileges in the C-code when we're not directly opening/closing ports.And that line disappears if I close ax25d. So it is definitely listening, but for some reason cannot hear!Good info, sounds pretty conclusive to me that it's not listening.
In the latest on-the-air tests I started ax25d as a normal user and of course it didn't respond. I restarted it as root and everything was normal, as normal as the buggy ax25d/axspawn setup I have will allow that is. See my latest message to the linux-hams list: Bob and I repeated the tests with all of the OpenSuSE-11.0 packages updated to the latest available and came up with the same list of bugs. Next is to upgrade the machine to OpenSuSE-11.1 (I have it running on three machines already, just not that one). -- Curt, WE7U. archer at eskimo dot com http://www.eskimo.com/~archer Lotto: A tax on people who are bad at math. - unknown Windows: Microsoft's tax on computer illiterates. - WE7U.
