Allstar linking on private LANI thought I might start here.
I am considering moving from hardware-based controllers (RLC, Arcom, Zetron) to Pi/DRA interface/controllers. I picked up several DRA-30 interfaces and built them (Thank you Kevin!).
But I have never really messed with Allstar. I though I should ask some questions first.
I have both layer 2 and layer 3 connectivity between my sites at several hundred mbps availability and low latency. I use VLAN tagging to segment traffic on both layers. While I do have internet access at all my sites, I intend to make this entirely private, none of the nodes connect to ASL.
Inspired by K5TRA controller project on his website, using a couple Pis and several interfaces to essentially build a multiport controller at each site to control repeaters and link certain repeaters to other repeaters at different sites.
