« on: November 03, 2019, 10:26:34 pm »
As at 03-Nov-2019 Currently running OGN-R 20191008. Laster version appears to be reporting as 20191101, This is not auto-installing. There is an error message about a missing file when trying to use the manual update script, Normally this all works as expected, Any thoughts? (system has been restarted).

Last few lines of update script output......

you're far too smart  :o

And absolutely correct. There is an issue with updating, we are trying to determine the easiest method to roll this update out with minimum inconvenience - please stand by, and we should have something in the next couple of days

it will involve some user intervention to login to the PI and run a simple command.
Currently all of the communication between the OGN-R ground station, and central server are un-encrypted over the public internet, we have been working on a Virtual Private Network, and this is what we want to roll out to all machines so that data exchange communications are protected.

News to follow very shortly

Creating a VPN tunnel from a unit sat on an internal LAN is a security concern as this then gives access to local network. An breach or misuse of the central server would allow the same on all contributors local networks. What assurances will be given that no traffic will be inbound to the OGN-R ground stations? I will need to look at placing my ground stations in a DMZ to protect the computers on my LAN.

@Vince

I think it is always good to be vigilant with any new technology, when bearing in mind the benefits it can bring

Maybe it was an over-simplification calling this a VPN, it is a Secure connection, between our centralized server and the OGNR Client Groundstation's

1. We have secured the traffic in and out of the OGN-R to disable any chance of the data being tampered with - it was previously completely open.

2. Access to the device is, as before, password controlled. Like any computer system or router/modem, not changing the password is a security risk even on a LAN. No-one can access the OGN-R without knowing the password.

3. If the OGN-R administrator would like us to log-in to diagnose/fix any problems, he can temporarily give us a password to allow a log-in.

This will give us great flexibility in maintenance across the network, especially for remote locations

I just thought I'd check, and one of my OGN setups is stuck on 20191008 too...

Seems to be dropping of the network every night as well …

Let me know if you need anything checking / testing …
