Restarting Rxmon & IFBox

If you have issues setting the attenuation levels, and are seeing the error:

WARNING: error s1 -104 ifpcn: time-out, connection closed

Then you can try restarting Rxmon and IFBox on pcfs.

To do this, ssh to pcfs[hb/ke/yg] and login as superuser. The commands to issue are:

 /etc/init.d/Monica.Rxmon stop
 /etc/init.d/Monica.Rxmon start

and similarly, for IFBox

 /etc/init.d/Monica.IFBox stop
 /etc/init.d/Monica.IFBox start

If successful, you should see something along the lines of:

 Socket created
 Socket bind complete
 Socket now listening
 Serial conn created
 Connected with
 Connected with

It may take a few seconds for the ports to clear, if you see the message:

 Bind failed. 

Wait a few seconds, and try again.
