The remote admin console allows
you to operate your node from a remote location, using a standard web
browser. It allows you to enable/disable the node, disconnect the
current connection, launch a remote desktop call to a laptop or desktop
computer (ADPCM or GSM), send any DTMF sequence to the decode script,
regenerate DTMF tones, and view the messages file... all online.
The scripts and pages are mobile browser friendly (BlackBerry and Palm
devices have been checked).
To install the console, you require the following:
CentOS or Debian base operating system
A working IRLP node installed
At least 100 megs of hard drive space free

Some patience : can take 20 minutes to install on slower systems
The install script is located on the irlp.net ftp site. To obtain the
file and run the script, type the following commands as user root:

The script can take about 20 minutes to complete.

I have set up a quick "redirection" website which will allow you to
access your node remotely. The site is
Type in your node number and the port number (defaults to 15426) and you
will be automatically redirected to your node's control page. Type in
your username and password you set in the script, and you will have
remote access to your node. For direct access use the
following URL -
nnn is your node IP. This will provide direct access to the admin
server on your node.
There will be more details on the features soon.
