Gateway Setup assistance is no longer available
Setting up an Amateur Radio Internet Gateway can be quite a headache
for someone new to the hobby or those unfamiliar with the Linux O/S.
I started working with my first TCP/IP BBS in 1994 and have accumulated
a lot of experience with gateway setup since then.
Basic system requirements are as follows:
Things to consider:
In order to register as a full time gateway your ISP must provide
a STATIC IP ADDRESS (an address that doesn't change) and that IP address must be
reachable 24 hours (your machine should always be online). While it is possible to operate a gateway with a DYNAMIC IP
ADDRESS, to do so, you must have a "static host" who is willing to provide 24
hour routing to your gateway. A static host is one with a STATIC IP ADDRESS
who is willing to support your operation.
