HomeHub 2 Issue

Go to solution

A friend of mine is a radio ham and is trying to use an application called Echolink on his PC/laptop to contact other radio ham's over the internet.  Apllication is installed and verified but he cannot connect to any call signs.  He uses a Home Hub 2 and I suggested that it's firewall may be blocking incomiing and application sharing/port forwarding may need to be enabled.

 

I remotely accessed his PC (Crossloop)/Router but whilst could find application sharing a) Echolink is not one of the listed applications and b) I could not add it. 

 

Despite using help files this hub just doesn't seem to have ability to be able to add additional applictions.  I've looked everywhere !! but the hub doesn't appear to conform to help file instructions.  I thought it may be because the firmware is out of date but according to help files this appears to be a automatic update feature.

 

Would really appreciate help and feedback on this

hamish72, 

 

Thanks for link.  Getting to application sharing is not as straightforward as instructions suggest.  Also, there is no "Supported Applications" instead a drop down box  with the words "select game or application".

 

This does give a pre-defined list of a number of applications - the name of the application (EchoLink)  isn't in the list, NOR, I repeat NOR is there a link/button or whatever entiltled "Add new game or application" that I can click on.  I'm at a complete lose.  I've looked everywhere.  My friend confirms it's a BT Home Hub 2.  My question is - is there more than one version of home hub 2.  Is this a first generation version? and firmware can't be updated ?.   Should he ask for a replacement. ??

Seems to be the same in newer versions

 

But that artical shows how to add a not listed application though you do need to know which ports and so on the application needs to use

hamish72,

 

I know the ports that need to be forwarded but despite what article says there is NO link/button which says "Add new application".  If you know exactly where I can find it, let me know

The link I gave takes you straight in to where you want to be other than pass word entry

or log in to hub

 

click A to Z top right of page

 

select ADD NEW GAME OR APPLICATION

 

on that page SUPPORTED APPLICATIONS

 

on that page ADD NEW GAME OR APPLICATION

 

now do it

Re: HomeHub 2 Issue

hamish72,

 

Thanks for continued support.  Of your two methods, the link method is the one that gives access to adding new apps  Your link produces a different page i.e a summary page of supported games and applications and there is a button to add new games and applications.

 

This time able to add echo and assign port.  Hope we have done this correctly.  Testing to date not been able to connect to any listed callsigns.  Software doesn't appear to be able to indicate if called user in online with his PC/laptop.  We will endeavour to move forward.

 

Thanks for your help  in at last finding how to add the application
