The IRLP Western Reflector


EchoIRLP software has now been added to several of the NARRI IRLP Nodes. This means NARRI IRLP nodes with EchoIRLP software can call and received calls from either IRLP or EchoLink, but not both at the same time.

Echoirlp allows the following combinations:
  • EchoIRLP to IRLP node-to-node or node-to-reflector connections
  • EchoIRLP node to EchoLink node, other EchoIRLP, or EchoLink Conference Server.

At the time an EchoIRLP node is being used for EchoLink it is no longer available for IRLP. The same is true when Nodes are being used in the IRLP mode; an EchoLink node cannot connect when IRLP is in use. EchoIRLP does not allow any form of cross linking between EchoLink and the IRLP system. For example: EchoLink stations can not connect to the IRLP Western Reflector, but can connect to Echo Conference Servers that are digitally linked to the Western Reflector (See Dual VoIP Bridges below).

When using an IRLP node in the EchoIRLP mode on the EchoLink System it will show up with the assigned EchoLink node number. When a connection is made to EchoLink the node will show up on the IRLP Status Page (see as connected to the "E_L_Project" . When operating on IRLP node-to-node or node-to-reflector the node will show up as an IRLP node on the IRLP Status Page as before. When IRLP Node 3641 is connected to IRLP, say 9250, it shows up on the EchoLink system as "connected to IRLP 9250".


NARRI Western Reflector Channels 1, 3, 4, 7, 8 and 9 are integrated servers, which means those IRLP Reflector channels are digitally linked to a unique EchoLink Integrated Conference thus allowing nodes on Echo Conferences to talk to nodes on specific reflector channels.
