VK7HSE-3 APRSD TCP Port Access Update

I have made some small changes to the ports that are available  on my APRS I-Gate. I previously had all ports for this service open for connection, however I have now reduced this to just the essential ports only. They are listed in order below…

1314    ALLOW   Anywhere  (message port)
10151   ALLOW   Anywhere  (full feed with history)
10152   ALLOW   Anywhere  (full feed without history)
14501   ALLOW   Anywhere  (HTTP access)
14579   ALLOW   Anywhere  (direct TNC feed)
14580   ALLOW   Anywhere  (custom feed)

The status of the I-gate can also be viewed at VK7HSE-3

Ubutnu & Me

So what was it that made me decide to give up using M$ Windows and move to Ubuntu? Well the answer is quite simple, For one to develop beyond simply being a “point & click” person one needs to open (free) ones train of though, in that you have a program that you like, but there isn’t a feature that you want, so normally you would contact the software developer/vendor to request such a feature. Most likely your request goes unanswered due to not enough requests for this, so you end up with software that you like but doesn’t allow you to change or alter it in any way. This for me is a “Limit” that not need be! This is where using FOSS you have the ability to expand and improve beyond the original concept of point & click! So not only do you develop as a person, others benefit too from this as well. So for me Ubuntu is the OS of choice!

Licensed Memory in Windows Vista

Watch out fellow Micro$oft users…  Licensed Memory in Windows Vista. So check what your hardware is really capable of, then ask Microsoft why they feel they can impose a “License” to your hardware?  All the more reason to try Ubuntu!
