I am really glad to hear, and thankful to Kévin Seroux.
Hopefully he will manage to set this up with only little trouble...

His server is already working. He's working on the connected client list as the one that was previously displayed on http://fgcom.flightgear.org, so things are in good shape. He should give some news soon through the -devel mailing list.

Well, at the moment I cannot get ping to answer or echo test to sound, but I understand he may be momentarily fiddling with it.

@mickybadia: Did you try to just run fgcom:
Code: Select all
fgcom --frequency=118.850 --airport=KSFO --server=195.154.82.117

Do you get an ATIS vocal message?

Just tried it and got the live ATIS report. This is very good news for those of us who prefer the more realistic FGCom over using Mumble.

OK great. Pinging or connecting does work when using the suggested IP. So it is the DNS that is not working. Still pointing to the wrong server?

Yes, I think I will ask for the DNS to point to the correct IP when everything will be ready.

You can use it but keep in mind that I'm still working on it.

Perfect. It is working but there is a problem with ATIS recording...

For one, ATIS frequencies did not use to generate messages from current METAR info (like FlightGear does when ticking the "ATC" option and tuning in ATIS). I suppose it is OK to add that feature on FGCom, but not if a proper ATIS message is recorded. I have just tried to record one, but the synthesised METAR message is not overridden.

Could you comment on this change of behaviour and report any change regarding this feature on the server's side?

I share the same view as you. In fact Festival (on the FGCom server side) use only the raw metar datas. I think I'll remove it. Moreover, FlightGear already do it, and better.
The option to record METAR data is not available yet.

I'm finishing the status page. An overview:

The page is refreshed every 5 seconds.

Yes, this is ugly, but it displays what we need. I believe the sources of the previous fgcom status page are lost. So if someone wants to make this page more user-friendly, I'll be glad to display his version.

EDIT: Now, you can record METAR.

I have checked the feature (you mean *ATIS* though, not METAR), and it works.
The status page is not accessible (restricted) but it is not the most useful thing. DNS translation from fgcom.flightgear.org is probably what we need most quickly to get people back to using FGCom easily.

Thank you ever so much for volunteering the service. Really.

In fact the page will be accessible as soon as the DNS will be operational. It is because, currently when you ask for the page, the 'Host' header is not correctly set by your web browser. I just asked for the DNS. It can takes 24h/48h for the DNS servers to update it.

I recommend you for the moment to add a DNS entry especially for the fgcom server on your machines, and everything will work as before, I hope...

Thanks. It's a pleasure to contribute.

Hooray! OpenRadar client can use FGCom once again! Thank you so much to all who have donated time and resources to keep the FlightGear voice services available!

And ATC-pie clients as well of course ;-) ...the relevance to this conversation being that ATC-pie features ATIS recording, which is now back up as well.

Happy controlling!
