I have a remoteQth server question for anyone who may be able to help.   I just got my 1st raspberry pi and I am a noob.  I used the image disk on the remoteQth web site.  The install went well.  I then did the system update.   I noticed that during the sudo apt-get update the mosquitto fetch failed.  

I am not sure I need mosquito.  I want to use the remoteQth server to control relays as described in an earlier post by Mike Walker 

https://community.flexradio.com/flexradio/topics/a-cost-effective-web-relay-control

When I go to the ipaddress of the raspberry pi using my browser I get a log on screen but the default login / pwd does not work ('your call' / '1234').

I am not sure if the failed mosquito fetch is the culprit.   

Any guidance on how to resolve and test this is appreciate.

Well I figured out the problem with the help of Michael Muller on the RemoteQTH team.  The issue was cockpit error.  When you login to the website the instructions say to use 'yourcall' and '1234' as the username / password.   Well I interpreted your call to mean W8BE...Nope ...they mean the string 'yourcall'.


I am posting this so anyone else wont make the same bonehead mistake.


Many thanks to the RemoteQTH guys who developed the code and especially Michael Muller, DM5XX

I'll tell you what would be slick if they would incorporate the Flex API's in there code to go fetch data from the radio i.e temp, etc.
