Ok, I am very sorry to have to ask for more help with my interface. It is working but I can’t get it to communicate between the local host and port 4532. I have tried all kinds of configurations and tried using the set command thinkin it may need to set dtr and rts off but no change. I have two images attached showing
the log and my configuration…
You need to run an instance of ‘rigctld’ on the local host, too, so you can connect from gpredict!
This process needs to be running, that will provide the port 4532 where GPredict can connect to.
Thank you both, as I thought I only had to run the command once to test the interface. I am now running Gpredict and the radio is responding as expected. One final question, is there a Linux Command that I can enter to have the interface start at boot time or when I launch Gpredict?
You are running Linux mint? Then there should be a systemd service taking care of this.
systemctl --type=service | grep rigctld to see if it is running.
cat /etc/systemd/system/rigctld.service will show you details.
And in my case
/etc/default/hamlib-utils shows the parameters.
RIG_OPTS="-T 127.0.0.1 -m 1"
You will need to change it so it matches your required settings.
sudo systemctl restart rigctld
Thanks Jan I appreciate all your help.
