Server :: Console

 

 

 


 

Console

In the console you connect to a server in the same way you connect to a SDR radio only you search for a radio of type V3 Server (at the bottom of the search list).

    

In the search window enter the address of the computer where the server software is installed, a valid username/password and press Search. A list of available radios is shown in the Defns area below.

WAN (Internet)

To access a computer over a WAN (internet) either enter the public IP address of the remote computer, or click SDR Space to display a list of V3 servers as shown on http://www.sdrspace.com/Version-3, if the entry does not have a username/password then you must contact the owner of the server and ask for access information.

LAN (Local)

The easiest way to connect with a computer in your local network is to enter the name of the computer. If this does not work simply enter the computer's IP address, this is usually in the 192.168.x.x range.

Options

When connected to a server the V3 Server button is shown in the ribbon bar.

The V3 Server options are:

Station text

A description of the remote server as defined in the Welcome Text pane of the Server Manager (see below).

Audio Stutter

Buffering

This software uses an internal buffer to ensure the remote data (IQ) is streamed without breaks if your internet connection slows down or is interrupted. When you start the remote radio the buffer will start to fill; when it reaches the buffering level (usually 100ms) the radio starts displaying the data in the waterfall and audio will be heard. If the buffer becomes empty due to an interruption in the network the above logic is applied again - it is preferable to have fewer breaks like this. The suggested value is 100ms - only if you are suffering from a very erratic network connection should you need to increase this value.

Server settings:

  • Use Compression in the Network settings (below) to reduce the bandwidth
  • Use a lower bandwidth when starting the radio

Wi-Fi

In your router:

  • Make sure you have TX Burst and Frame Burst off, especially if you are using a N or AC network
  • Try to fix the router to a single mode if possible, for example 802.11n or 802.11ac if supported
  • Don't allow the router to hop channels
  • Don't share the router network with vidieo / music streaming, game-players and similar
  • Stronger signals are much better than weaker
  • Ensure you do not have co-channel interference, for example from wireless speakers, cordless telephones, computer monitors etc.
  • Enable Drop Broadcast and Unknown Multicast in virtual access points

Common Errors

Error 10054 Connection reset by peer

This error message is returned when your WAN (internet) access is blocked by the firewall in the Server Manager. If there are any whitelist (allow) entries then your public (WAN) IP must be in the list.
