View Full Version : Echolink Kaspersky settings
08-31-2011, 10:12 PM
Hoping somebody can help me get echo link running, I have a Huawei SmartAX MT882 router and Kaspersky internet security 2011.
I have tried and tried to configure both to run echo link but with no success and keep getting UDP receive failed on the firewall/router test, its showing the TCP connectivity as succeeding.
I think its a setting I might be missing in Kaspersky so if there is somebody could help or advise me that would be great.

You have a hardwire firewall running within your router, and you have a software firewall running in Kaspersky. I would suggest that you disable the software firewall, as your routers firewall is doing the job before it even hits the sofware FW. Then you'll need to set up an application exception on your routers FW to allow access to ports 5198 and 5199. You'll find those setting (once you log into the router) under Advance/Applications. Create a new Rule, call it EchoLink. The Trigger port is 5200 (TCP) and the Private ports are UDP 5198-5199

I ran kaspersky, I eventually deceided to dump it. It while appearing to be quite good it caused interesting problems (ones I could do without!) DO NOT run in mid security setting mode.. They call it a "training mode" you have to tell it to allow connects, it builds big files and the only alternative is to run in LOW setting.
My conclusion = sorry lots of hassle and when you can connect to a Gateway 300 miles away and not the local one 3 miles up the road.. That was enough for me..
My suspisions I felt it was ignoring the rest of the world to try and connect as it had not been given permission.
To assist with this and other types of problems relating to echolink, I got a "pass me up gadget from my kids".. I using a Ipod touch 4g, over next doors wi-fi (with permission) now have the facility to check my link via the ipod touch while sat infrount of the thing, over next doors wi-fi with its different Ip address (before problems and having to run proxi to run more than 1 station= hassle) it works,, The app's free, Brilliant no hassle NO silly silly problems, and darn good audio, perfect for testing.
A word of caution - if you were to run 2 stations this way you "MUST!" not use the same call twice, however G6AOS and G6AOS-L works a treet.
Good luck regards Steve G6AOS
