Since the DD change I've had a few issues, but now it's running and this is what I have found.

1.1.2b with the DD update didn't work (too many exceptions)
1.2.5 didn't work properly (half the channels had 'No Program Information')
1.2.4 works great for replay program guide serving. ToDo not working giving "WiRNSService.BuildToDo(): Object reference not set to an instance of an object. at WiRNS.WiRNSService.BuildToDo()" when rebuilding.

Request: It would be nice for the View Log to behave similiar to a 'tail -f' so I don't need to do a refresh and a scroll down.

My notes marked with "**"

1. Add her channel lineup to my WiRNS server.
2. Forward port 80 TCP through my router to my WiRNS server IP.
3. Add her RTV IP to my list of ReplayTV machines.
** if her RTV IP is reachable
4. Change her ReplayTV to use my public IP.
a. Leave her DNS server and gateway pointing at her local router.
** her RTV DNS should point to your WiRNS public IP, unless she has a local DNS server
5. Forward her port 80 TCP to her RTV so my WiRNS can see it.
6. Leave my RTV setup exactly as is.

Basically, why dup efforts? You already have it setup..
Well, my first try at setting this up was not totally successful. Here are the steps I took after adding her Zap2it channel lineup to my WiRNS setup...

1. At my end, forwarded port 80 to my WiRNS server IP (192.168.2.97).
2. At her end, forwarded port 80 to her RTV (192.168.2.90).
3. At my end, added her RTV to my WiRNS setup using her public IP.
4. Restarted WiRNS in application mode. WiRNS successfully refreshed her Recording Guide. :)
5. At her end, entered my public IP into her RTV as her DNS1 entry.
6. The RTV could not connect to the network. :(
7. At her end she tried http://my_public_ip in Internet Explorer to see if she could see the guide info on my server.
8. Windows kept substituting 192.168.2.97 for my_publc_ip into her address bar and timing-out declaring the page was not accessible. :confused:

I am working on the assumption that the RTV has the same problem seeing my public IP that Internet Explorer did and that, if I can solve that, the exercise will succeed.

Complicating things is that her private network settings and hardware are exactly the same as mine (Linksys WRT54G set to 192.168.2.1) and her RTV IP and WiRNS IP are exactly the same as mine (it seemed like a good idea at the time). She is running stock Linksys firmware and I am running Sveasoft Alchemy 6RC3.

I can't be sure if the substituting of 192.168.2.97 for my_public_ip is happening at her end or my end. Since all she had on at the time was her router and notebook computer I suspect the substitution is happening at my end.

So I need some of you network gurus out there to tell me if there is anything special about forwarding port 80 and if you can think of a reason how the router at my end could substitute the IP address of the port being forwarded to in place of my_public_ip that was entered.

Thanks,
ltj

Since you're going across the network and have to forward ports, you'll also need to forward UDP/53 to your WiNRS box.

To see if she can get to the guide server, use this: http://my_public_ip/manage/GuideServer I'll correct this soon so that WiRNS won't return the local IP and will use whatever you connect with.

To verify everything, check a connection with Ethereal

Another option to keep it local to her is to use moyekj's script. It'll start WiRNS, force a net connect and then kill WiRNS here: Enabling CA/IVS on RTV5504

hehe.. corrected Ethereal's link.. thanks rickster

Rogers added Fox News Channel to the lineup last week. After waiting a few days I emailed Zap2it.com and told them about the addition. The next morning it was on the Zap2it channel listing but not on my Zap2it labs listing. I emailed labs and they sent me this email:

Jim,

It appears our script to automatically add and delete stations from lineups is not working properly and our developer is on vacation this week. As a workaround, you can delete your old lineup and add this lineup again and channel 197 FNC will appear. Hope it won't take too long to customize your channels again.

We will get this script working again next week.

Thanks,
Greg
Zap2it Labs product manager
I did what he suggested and the new channel appeared.

How are things coming? Have you got your server handling your daughter's guide updates?

I want to do this for a buddy (disabled and not computer-capable).

I will be checking with you from time to time.

Regards and the best of the holiday season to all.

Go Ahead.....

Wayne,

Almost.

My WiRNS was able to see her RTV and it updated the channel guide info perfectly.

She was not able to see my WiRNS server, however, because at present WiRNS returns the WiRNS IP rather than the public IP. I don't pretend to understand this of course but Ryan wrote...

Ok.. I checked, and there was only a couple place where WiRNS returns the WiRNS IP, and that was just for recording. It will be normal for the PC to return the static IP (WiRNS IP) when behind a NAT router.

When WiRNS gets NAT'd to a public IP, is that the IP that her Replay talks to or is there a NAT pool?

If you could, put ethereal on her side and sniff a capture (if possible).

Ryan

[edit]I know this works. I just remembered that this has been done before over the Internet. (maybe it was my WiRNS box, maybe not.. :) ) This will just take a little patience.[/edit]

[edit2]I remembered that when it was done before, the WiRNS IP was a static, public IP on the PC. Can you do this, or do you only have the option from your ISP for dynamic IPs?[/edit2]

Jim... I figured it out.. This will look in the wirns.hosts file for the remote public IP and return the local public IP when the queries are for the standard production*.replaytv.net.

Problem solved...

Try this:

Stop WiRNS & unzip the attached zip to your WiRNS directory.
Start WiRNS either via service or app mode.

Then, in the file wirns.hosts add a line with her public IP and your public IP.

Example: x.x.x.x = her public IP & y.y.y.y = your public IP
x.x.x.x=y.y.y.y

Merry Christmas..

Ryan,

Thank you for the update. I presume my local RTV will continue to be able to update it's guide without problem?

I probably won't get a chance to test it until Tuesday.

That's almost like the response I got when I posted on the Forum about lineup changes that happened to me on December 16th.

Only thing was I found out that if I deleted and re-added the lineup, the additions would show up...and had added that to my forum post when they thanked me for discovering the problem....

Zap2it has deleted Spike off the directv lineups (channel 325).
In prior versions I could use SQLite and manually tweak the database
to add channel mappings.

In this version (1.2.4) it tells me the db is encrypted or corrupt.
WHat do I need to do to add spike in?

Thanks

Ehud

This has already been pointed out at the zap2it labs forums. You can update the database, but the sqlite explorer that you have is for ver 2.x.

Go to the WiRNS link in my signature & follow the download links to get either sqlite3explorer or sqlite.exe (both zipped).

You can make the change, but it'll get wiped out on the next connect.

Ryan,

I copied the NAT version of WiRNS you gave me and tried connecting with my local ReplayTV. No joy.

When I forced a net connect my RTV sat at checking the time for 30 seconds or more before continuing on. It seemed to do everything in normal time after that until it got to Replay Zone 10/15 and then just stopped dead. I tried waiting 10 minutes or more and it never moved on.

The wirns.hosts file is in the WiRNS subdirectory looks like this:
xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx=yyy.yyy.yyy.yyy (her public ip = my public ip)

The log file using the NAT version, after the forced net connect that stalled at Replay Zone 10/15, looks like this:

ok.. It looks like you put her public IP and your private IP in the wirns.hosts?

[2004-12-27 09:34:17] [DNS-NAT] Returning yyy.yyy.yyy.yyy for ntp-production.replaytv.net to 192.168.2.90 <--- your replay IP?

if her public IP is 10.10.10.1 and your public ip is 172.16.1.1, the wirns.hosts would look like:

10.10.10.1=172.16.1.1

<edit> Ok.. somehow, it's returning the public IP to your local replay</edit>

yes, my RTV IP is 192.196.2.90 and yyy.yyy.yyy.yyy is my public IP.

As per your example, the wirns.hosts is 10.10.10.1=172.16.1.1.

Ryan,

The local connection worked perfectly. I will try the "remote" connection tomorrow and let you know how it goes.

BTW, I use dyndns.org to track my IP address. If I set that up for her as well can I use domain names on either / both sides of the = sign in wirns.conf? For example:

her.homeip.net=my.homeip.net

Also, is there a limit to the number of entries that can be in wirns.conf?

Jim

Yes.. you can use names.. as long as they're in DNS like yours. and I'm unaware of any limitations... yet.. :)

New version 1.2.6

Go to http://wirns.zapto.org and go to "Just lemme download" toward the bottom.

IMPORTANT!!! Do NOT Upgrade if you're running a version older than 1.1.2.14760. Too many changes to the database, configuration and application.

**** YOU MUST run "wirns.exe -convert" immediately after install if you are running 1.1.5.20152 or older. Otherwise, you'll need to enter IP & DD info again. Replays and other info will not be affected.

**** If you use the DTV PPV or Sports listings, please visit http://www.geocities.com/paglierani and donate.

** YOU WILL HAVE TO DELETE YOUR WIRNS.DB FILE IF YOU'RE RUNNING < 1.2.3.x : follow instructions in install.txt.

WiRNSMon - Can now be used when WiRNS is run as an app (service must be installed)

Still only for WinNT/2K/Xp

1.2.6 12/28/2004
WiRNS
1. Added support for WiRNS behind NAT router for remote ReplayTV's (see wirns.hosts)
2. Manual Guide Updater (on Datadirect Configuration Page)
3. "Automagic" (almost) Dish PPV settings
4. Force NetConnect for Replays - takes about 8-9 seconds for status (on Replay Configuration Page)

1.1 12/21/2004
WiRNSMon
1. Checks socket (TCP/80) if WiRNS is running before enabling features instead of using a timer.
2. Added menu to edit IVSProvider.conf.

For more, see changelog.txt...

I tried to install wirns back in the summer and gave up in frustration. Not so much because I lost hope but because I ran out of time. And that's what leads me into my question. Since I have very little free time, is it worth trying again to install wirns? Is the new 1.2.6 version much easier? I mainly want to be able to remotely schedule recordings on my 4ks. I was hoping DVArchive would have this capability by now, but it doesn't. DVA and the new poopli updater are wonderful, not just because of their cool features, but also because I can get them up and running in no time. I recognize that wirns does a lot of other nifty stuff, but if it takes me more than an hour or so to set it up and all I need is 4k scheduling, should I just wait?

it's a lot easier now.. I'd say < 30 min, including the time for a full guide update.

Nice update!! One question - how exactly do I use remapchan.csv? Before to remap channels I changed the lineupmaps table. I tried that again this time, and it appeared to work correctly, but when I got home today nothing seemed to work. There wasn't any channel data in my replay or in WiRNS, and doing a guide update didn't do anything. This was with 1.2.5. I just grabbed 1.2.6 to see if it fixes things in the meantime.

Ryan,

I installed 1.2.6 and made a connection with my local RTV and it continued to work fine (other than the response from zap2it was very, very slow). BTW, for the testing phase I am running WiRNS in a DOS window.

I had my daughter change her router settings, I added her RTV to my list and then had her change the DNS1 IP to my public one. In a few seconds I saw a hit in my WiRNS window and her RTV accepted the network addresses.

I then had her change the ZIP code (she was running 1.2.4) so she could see my "new" channel lineups. I saw 3 hits in my WiRNS windows and her RTV screen said it was "Setting Clock...". It stayed there for 20 or 30 seconds and then displayed an "Unexpected result code. (84420005)" error message (see photo).

Below is the dos window capture. Her public IP is shown as x.x.x.x and my public IP is shown as y.y.y.y.
