Re: VPN with Pi-Star

Great, thanks for the pointers. It does not appear to be that difficult so I think I will be able to give it a go.

Re: VPN with Pi-Star

Okay... You had me up until the firewall part. I totally understand what you are saying, but as to how to set the firewall rules, I am clueless. Can you point me to where I might be able to figure this out? I am somewhat more advanced than the clueless and dangerous computer user, but not by a whole...

VPN with Pi-Star

Can a VPN service be installed on the front end of rapsbian with Pi-Star to always use a VPN service? So, I have figured out how to get my Pi-Star spot to connect to a WIFI hotspot that requires no password or encryption (WITH lots of help here). I also have been using a travel router with my VPN to...

Re: WIFI with no password

W1KMC, Thanks for the tip. I am familiar with capture portals the require a login or acceptance of terms. I use a travel router in these situations. My query was only related to WIFI SSID's that do not require a password. When I tried to connect via PI-Star, it would not succeed. It appears the only...

Re: WIFI with no password

Got it. I have edited the wpa-supplicant.conf file before for other projects using a raspberry pi, butI don't know a heck of a lot about linux. I was not clear that more than one network can be added to the file. Thanks so much for the help!

Re: WIFI with no password

I see... Is it possible to connect via the PI-star interface or must that change be made via wpa_supplicant file? I have multiple SSID profiles in Pi-Star. One for home, one for a secured public wifi spot, and I would like to add the non-password SSID profile so that it will automatically connect to...

WIFI with no password

Someone suggested in another forum that PI-Star will not connect to Wifi that does not have a password. For example, I have tried connecting to public WIFI whose SSID is "guest." On my phone I connect and it does not require a password and off to the internets. But, when I try to connect the hotspot...

Re: More than one unit with D-star?

I have one I leave on most of the time at home. I have another that I run mobile and at work sometimes, both with my only callsign. When I am mobile and at work, the home hotspot and the mobile/work one is on at the same time and I have had them on the same reflectors at the same time on D-Star. I h...

Re: Public Wifi Issue

N4GWB, You posted “It is a travel wifi router/repeater. I connected it to my work's guest wifi and it gets through the authorization and anything connected to it was straight to the internet without issue (my phone anyway).” How exactly are you connecting to your work’s guest wifi without going thr...
