@hilarykoch I had that happen on my rigs. I could totally see it on my home router. Worked just fine. But I could not use
ssh firstname.lastname@example.org. I could however use
ssh email@example.com. Have you tried doing that?
Regardless, what did end up bringing back my ssh with the hostname finally was clearing the known hosts file. Instructions are on the accessing your rig page. It's a quick 2-3 lines. Really easy
Haven't been on in a while, as I've been learning C++ and writing the driver for the power regulator/charger on the RiledUp. I have not managed to get USB OTG functioning (as it requires interaction with the Edison to detect the OTG connection), but I think that OTG is not terribly useful. I would rather just integrate the Wixel onto the board and be done with the G5 handheld. We are getting tremendously long run times from our G5 transmitters using the Wixel/Xdrip+ and never having paired them with anything else. The current G5 transmitter he started using in 2016, so we are well past 6 months with it.
I have ordered a couple of tiny displays from Adafruit to add that ability. I'm going on vacation, then I will finalize the schematic and layout. Any feature requests should be posted here. Right now, RiledUp2 will be:
RiledUp (Edison-based OpenAPS rig, with CC1110 radio, 1.5A charging for batteries with a thermistor to sense temp, Wixel interface to Edison, USB OTG (if someone does the SW)) PLUS Wixel on-board, Small graphics display, five-way button/joystick, optional 3G radio.
I've been thinking about the demise of Edison this year. It seems there will be a pretty good supply for APS use into 2018. We can decide on a replacement processor and create a build of Linux to support the APS work during this year, then add an interface to that chip/board to replace the Edison connection. Right now the Edison provides compute, memory (flash/ram), BT, WiFi and some power management, along with the various processor interfaces (USB, I2C, UART, etc.).
The other option would be to find a 3G module that has the capability to run Linux and has BT/WiFi on it. This would likely be the lowest-power solution.
The Wixel is like the CC1110 on the Explorer and RileyLink: a radio plus an MCU, only this one is a 2.4GHz radio (for proprietary formats, rather than say WiFi or Bluetooth, which also use 2.4GHz).
The radio-only version of that chip is the CC2500, which is very cheap, and can be controlled over SPI from an Edison to also receive G4 transmissions (see https://github.com/ecc1/cc2500 for example). Now I have to see whether that code will pick up G5 transmissons too, as soon as I can find a live G5 transmitter.
