Installing IRLPvCON

Installing IRLPvCON on a Debian IRLP node.

IRLPvCON is a very useful IRLP remote admin tool. It is dependent on Apache and Perl.  These packages may be be installed using apt-get. Perl was available under IRLP 10.03 (Debian).

apt-get install apache2

To download and install IRLPvCON, log in as root on the IRLP node and run the following;

wget ftp://ftp.irlp.net/pub/irlpvcon_debian/irlpvcon_debian_install

chmod +x ./irlpvcon_debian_install

To use IRLPvCON go-to http://your-ip-address/irlpvcon
Set the admin password. The IRLPvCON manual may be found by following the following link your-ip-address/irlpvcon/manual.pdf

NOTE: If you previously had installed the IRLP remote admin utlity then Apache will be listening on 14526 you need to either edit httpd.conf or connect using that port.
