Echolink Travel Tips
If you are planning to use Echolink at your hotel or RV park, you may need to setup the proxy option in your echolink software. While running the latest software, run the firewall test. By default, most network routers are blocking the necessary UDP/TCP ports required to run Echolink. If the firewall test comes back failed, then you will require a proxy. In the "System Setup" window, click on the "Proxy" tab, select "Choose Public Proxy" and use the drop down to find a suitable proxy. Click here for a list of public proxy servers.
