PORT FOWARDING for WiRES-II operation
Some WiRES-II R users have reported various problems with their WiRES-II Rstation setup such as:
  • The user ID and serial number do not appear after installing the WiRES-II R software
  • The ID/station node list do not show up
  • Trouble connecting with designated station
  • Unable to hear audio from connected station
  • Audio not being passed through to connected station
  • Intermittent audio.....etc.


The primary reasons for the above mentioned problems are usually due to one or both of the following:

 

1) Improper configuration of your network router "port forwarding" settings.

and/or

2) Improper configuration of your computer operating system's built-in or third party firewall solution.

 

Please refer to the guide to properly configure your network router's "port forwarding" settings at: http://www.portforward.com/english/routers/port_forwarding/routerindex.htm 

Your computer may also have firewall software enabled that protects your computer from undesired connections with the Internet.

In addition to the proper configuration setting of your network router’s “port forwarding” settings  you will also need to ensure the proper configuration settings of your computer’s built-in and/or third party firewall software to allow "WiRES-II.exe" to be allowed inbound and outbound connection access through your firewall.

Windows(r) XP SP2 ,Windows(r) Vista and Windows(r) 7 all have built-in firewall software. Please refer to your Windows(r) operating system documentation to properly configure your firewall settings. You may also contact the vendor of your operating system or find documentation on the Internet to properly configure your Microsoft(r) firewall software.

Your computer may also have “third-party” firewall software installed and enabled in which you need to ensure its proper configuration. Please refer to your firewall software documentation or contact your firewall software vendor for assistance in the proper configuration of the firewall software.

It is recommended to use only one firewall software solution on your Microsoft(r) operating system. If you have two firewall software solutions enabled on your computer simultaneously please ensure proper configuration of both firewalls.

"Plug and Play" cable between FT-8900R,FT-8800R,FT-7800R etc.
( TRX including DATA jack) and HRI-100
for USA

We now have stock on the "plug and play" cable that allows quick interfacing between the HRI-100 Interface Box and modern mobile radios, like the FT-8900R,FT-8800R,FT-7800R that have the 6-pin miniature DIN connector normally utilized for "Packet" operation. By setting your mobile rig up for 1200 bps packet operation, the transceiver will be configured in a manner ideal for WIRES interfacing (because 1200 bps packet is basically a normal "voice" channel configuration).
This cable has a Yaesu Musen part number
T9101527, and it's available at a cost of $30.66, plus shipping/handling, from our Parts Department at yaesuparts@vxstdusa.com.
