Maestro via VPN

  • Updated 4 years ago

Maestro arrived:  A few observations.

1: Booted up fine to the "elect radio"page

2: Maestro cannot see the radio...  SSDR sees the radio broadcast packet here locally over VPN but Maestro, even though its hardwired to the Router , does not.

3: The power button seems a bit flaky..  takes getting used to I guess.

4:  Apparently useless to my configuration until the next firmware version.

5:  Excellent feel to the weighted tuning knobs.

6: No discernable problems with the display a couple have mentioned here. (If the Maestro page in color and the Select Radio page in shades of grey are any indicator)

7: Now to sit and wait...............

The Maestro right now  doesn't have VPN capabilities, If you are plugged into the same wired / wireless network it should find the radio with out issues, Try restarting the radio and see if that helps, sometimes mine doesn't see the radio because I've connected to it using my desktop and laptop and isn't being released (Or whatever) until I restart the radio with a power off and back on.
hope this helps

Thanks Bret,     I though because the Maestro was hardwired into the same local router that it would see the remote radio but apparently I do need the vpn access info loaded directly into the radio.  No soup for me either.....   nice looking paperweight though :-)

We'd have to know a lot more about your VPN, specifically how it's connected and configured, and what you have attached to where.

If your VPN is configured such that the radio and the maestro are on the same subnet -- VPN or no VPN -- it should work. If they re not then it won't work, until Flex provides WAN support in V2.

Maestro folks... Does the Maestro answer pings? How about tracert? Those would certainly be he,Paul in basic diagnostic scenarios.

Without trying it , it sounds like the VPN has to be set up as "bridged" as opposed to "routed". Bridging- Ethernet makes both ends of the VPN look like they are on the same network. Having said that I have to try it before I'll believe it. Steve KC4SW

Yes bridging is needed. I helped Larry get his VPN set up. The PC at his remote location was set up as the bridge and the Maestro then connected to the PC.
