Only had my 6300 just over a week or so and I guess I should have looked at the spec a little more before jumping into the deep end, for some reason I thought it was enabled for WAN access, my mistake it's LAN access unless you want to jump through all kind of hoops.
My understanding on here is that it should be working in V2
I'm 75% MAC equipment here and I was doing some research for MAC remote login software. Yes I have tried RDP (no audio), Teamviewer etc and while they do work however my latest find is even better as it streams input and output audio right out of the box, I have also tried Radmin for Windows and again audio processing is not very good.
Found this software "No Machine nx" https://www.nomachine.com/download and it works great on IOS, Windows, Linux, and Andriod, how simple it just works without a load of technical know how. I have it running on all my machines MBP, Ipad mini (latest) Ipad (original), W7 W8 W10 and even WMWare Fusion W7. It's a 5 minute install on each machine and don't forget to enable the mic input, I use a static IP address for WAN op's but you can easy get a free IP static address, just google it.
You can see from the clip I have it running on an old Toshiba laptop and also on my MBP remote WAN IP) at the same time, the eagle eyed among you will see my network connection is not good and I will fix this in the next few days as it's just local issues.
Sorry the clip is not great and it does show SmartSDR running on the Tosh and MBP (remote) at the same time.
There has been considerable discussion regarding remoting the 6000 series over a WAN. The consensus of the best way to accomplish this is using a Virtual Private Network which effectively connects a remote computer to the LAN of which the Flex radio is attached. Softether is a very effective program which accomplishes this task very easily.
Thanks for the pointer Jim.
Looking forward to FRS getting WAN implemented on the 6000 series soon, keep up the great work at FRS.
I saw your post regarding NoMachine and tried out the software over a "slow" DSL link to my remote station using PowerSDR and a Flex 5000. My initial tests look very favorable. The NoMachine client utilizes a robust remote display system coupled with an Opus based audio codec for great high fidelity audio. All parameters such as display and audio quality are fully adjustable.
I have a dedicated IPSec VPN between the remote station and my control position but it looks like the NoMachine system is UPNP compatible and can automatically transverse a consumer router if UPNP is enabled. Best two things is that the software is free and seamlessly interfaces the audio with the display between a Windows 10 computer running PowerSDR and a Windows 10 or IPad tablet. There are clients for Windows, MAC, IOS and Android from what I see.
Kudos to you for posting!
Once installed NM it routes the audio to the remote connected machine which becomes the default audio device, if you hit the Remote button top right in SSDR it will fire up providing your volume controls are not muted.
I had a problem on my iPad last night, went through all kind of things looking for problems, I forgot I had muted the volume on the iPad all working good now.
I have been using Teamviewer for quite some time now both IOS and Windows and have been very happy with it. However on a PC platform I love VPN with Softether. What is it about NO Maching you find better than Teamviewer? It seems the RDP programs are more of a matter of personal taste rather than one program being superior over another.
Audio streaming is good quality and the interface is also very easy to use.
I travel a lot and its great to be able have my base station available when on the road via 4G and iPad. I also use Microsoft RDP for other business needs simply because I like it and as you mentioned all these systems are down to personal choice and needs. If whatever your using works for you and fulfills your needs stick with it, you know what’s often said “if it’s not broken don’t mend it”
Over the years I have used VNC, VPN, RDP, Radmin, Teamviewer and a host of others, No Machine is free a very simple install and you are up and running in minutes.
having trouble getting No Machine to connect. Keep getting a time out error. Think I am following setup right, but keep getting time error message.
Been using teamview and its working fb. But for some reason can't get no machine to work.
