Could it be that a node you were connected to or a node
connected to you also had a 1999 private node ?
If so, it will not allow you to connect as long as one is
present in the 'connected network'.
Suggest using a odd number like 1325. everyone seems to use
1999 for there first private node.
Something to look for next time.
Yep, looks good.
The auto connect on boot works fine and that is
done via macro *31999 in rpt.conf so I'm confused as
to why it won't connect after a disconnect.
startup_macro = *31999
I've also searched through the logs for 1999 and
the only relevant lines that come back are
28 18:51:19] NOTICE app_rpt.c: Normal Repeater Init 1999
28 20:01:16] NOTICE app_rpt.c: Normal Repeater Init 1999
29 02:30:16] NOTICE app_rpt.c: Normal Repeater Init 1999
Which seem to be normal for boot.
Welp, I just tried to
connect to it again to see if I could get anything to
show in the logs that would easier to find and it
worked. Disconnected and reconnected like 5 times with
success. No file changes, reboots or anything like
Thanks for the replies
and help but it's a mystery still. Will see if I can
learn anything more if it happens again. Any further
thoughts or things to check/confirm are welcome but
with it working. We won't be able to confirm that it
was a fix.
Until it acts up again.
