How to edit local hostfiles in pi-star

Post by W0RMT » Mon Dec 24, 2018 7:59 pm

I made a brief video for a fellow ham on how to add an NXDN reflector (Colorado HD 31088) to the pi-star hostfiles. Feedback welcomed!

Just some feedback for you;

The best way to do this, is to edit the hostiles in /root only - and then run "sudo pistar-update"
In doing that you add the hosts you want, correctly, the update process takes care of putting them in the correct files - and the new TGs will be available as soon as the update process finishes.

Hope that helps.
Andy
