Hamsexy Net

I am currently sitting in a Starbucks in downtown Tainan City, because my internet crapped out at home. Sigh…

Hopefully it’s up by the time the net rolls around tonight – unfortunatley it can’t be helped. If I am not online by the time the net starts, I would request that someone take it over (if they are so inclined) and let me know how it went. Accept my apologies.

If I *am* online, then the net will go forward!

Thanks to everyone while I try to get my shit straight here – I’ve pretty much adjusted to Taiwan, but working internet issues out is a pain… My landlady has made an arrangement with the guy upstairs to share his internet access in order to save money – but again, it’s on a router. I have no idea of Echolink will even work for me.. but I will try…

Thakns to Jaymz who took the reigns last week… and thanks to everyone who’s been so supportive…

Take care, and zaijian!

    If you arent there, I can handle it tonight, I have nowhere to go.

    Unless he forwards the port through, you are SOL. Echolink requires a port forward.

    I’ll try to get on the net and participate. No promises though, few family things happening today.

    Sorry about that, guys… I’m borrowing the guy’s connection upstairs (an arrangement made by my landlady), so I’m not able to use Echolink. He doesn’t speak English, and I’m afraid i didn’t learn how to say “port forward” in Chinese…. Until I get a connection of my own (or get him to forward some ports for me) I’m afriad I won’t be able to participate in the net. Urgh.

    Have you checked out the echolink proxy?

    Hey NA6M – thanks for the info, but I’ve got a Mac.. and Echomac doesn’t offer support for the proxy server (as far as I can tell…)… There’s even an Echolink proxy server in Taipei, too… Ah well..

    You can set up an agreement to use a PPTP type VPN, which would give you a static IP address on the outside, via you MAC.

    I know some IRLP people that do this from time to time when travelling, including myself. The trick would be to find one in a location that is somewhere between Taiwan and where you want to talk to.

    I have set up a VPN service for IRLP users.
