RE: network use step-by-step
OK now I got it working while I am working with WIFI in the house and it
really is great . But what address do I use when connecting from the
office (over internet connection)?
I am using a linksys WIFI router. What is the external address I use
when connecting from the internet?

Subject: [PCR1000] network use step-by-step
I have been using the free Ham Radio Deluxe and the free Windows Media
Encoder for a few days now via my home network and the Internet.
I love it! Currently I am at work listening to my PCR-1000 at home. Now,
I need to do is get a better antenna and I will be all set.
The "server" is merely a Windows XP Home laptop connected wirelessly via
802.11b and the PCR-1000
Basically, you run a "service" on the computer connected to the PCR-1000
you also run Windows Media Encoder to feed the audio. On the client you
HRD3.1 to control and Windows Media Player to listen.
Here are some step-by-steps:
to control the PCR-1000: install Ham Radio Deluxe 3.1 Beta dated
available at http://hrd.ham-radio.ch/downloads.html
choose HRDv31beta build 606
run and test the software and your PCR-1000
then set up the server:
at a DOS prompt go to \Program Files\Amateur Radio\Ham Radio Deluxe
and run HRDRemoteSvr.exe -install
go to control panel...administrative tools...services and look for HRD
adjust properties to Automatic so it runs through boots
note that it is now unnecessary to run HRD itself on the server, just
"service" you just set up
to CONTROL the receiver remotely
once running HRD on the client:
address: the ip address of the server for example 192.168.1.104
enter default port 7805
user name: user
when you get the welcome message, click OK
then see Remote Connection just minimize it
you will now be able to control the receiver over your LAN
use Windows Media Encoder 9 (
choose BROADCAST a live event
choose the audio device you are connecting the PCR-1000 to. Suggestion:
the PCR-1000 to line level out and feed it to your sound card line level
choose PULL from the encoder rather than push to a server
Encoding Options: FM Quality Audio ( sounds GREAT on wireless as well as
cellphone connection at about 50kBPS, should be fine for dial-up )
to LISTEN remotely:
use Windows Media Player 9 or 10
( the same address of the server followed by colon 8080 )
the bad news is there is about a 10 second delay for the audio to appear
the client but you won't believe how good it sounds.
If on the Internet use ZoneAlarm ( http://www.zonelabs.com ) on the
and allow the two applications Windows Media Encoder and HRD to act as
When I skipped that my server was hacked into within minutes! USE
If going through a wireless or wired router, set the DMZ open for the
only. For example, my server is at 192.168.1.104 so THAT one machine is
to the Internet
I'm not sure if the DMZ setting in the router can restrict to ports, if
did I would allow access back from the Internet only to ports 7805 and
on the server
