The repeater room server is currently a Dell R710 with a single Xeon E5520 and 12 GB of DDR3 ECC ram. The server has two 250GB disks in RAID 1 and a single 250GB disk used for backups. There are 3 PCIe cards; a sound card, serial/parallel card and IRLP interface card. The parallel port on the IRLP interface card is connected to the parallel port on the serial & parallel card. There is also an internal connection on the IRLP interface card which connects to the repeater controller. The audio connections from the repeater controller are connected to the sound card.

The server runs Proxmox VE, which is a Debian based virtualization environment. Backups are scheduled to run at midnight every Saturday.

The Proxmox web interface can be accessed by going to The server also has a IDRAC remote access card, which allows you to access the server as if sitting in front of it. It allows you to see what's on the screen, and allows keyboard input. The IDRAC can be accessed by going to (you will need to install Java and add the IDRAC url to the trusted sites list before using the virtual console).

Web Server (VM 100)

IP Address:

OS: Ubuntu Server 16.04

This VM hosts the K2CC website and wiki, both hosted on Apache. The main website runs Wordpress, and the wiki runs Mediawiki. Wordpress will automatically update, but Mediawiki will need to be periodically updated. Instructions can be found here. Port 80 is open so that the website can be accessed off campus.

IRLP (VM 101)

IP Address:

OS: Debian 9 i386

This VM provides IRLP for the 2 meter repeater. The parallel port and sound card are passed through to this VM so it can interface with the repeater controller. Be sure to make a backup before upgrading, because if the IRLP certificates are lost we will need to get a new node number!
