So been playing around again today and have successfully got the Nodes set up and working. One of the first services to run on the network is the MeshChat. Think of it like a whatsapp group for the Mesh Network.
I have also linked this with some firewall routing to a public URL.
So if you fancy chatting to people on the UKMESH network or have a question, why not use my internet link to join in.
You simply need to visit http://qth.ukmesh.org:8080/meshchat
Enter your callsign (or just your name if you do not have a callsign) and any message you enter will be relayed to all the nodes on the network. (ok as of today, that is only my 2 nodes at home. But you can give it a try before deciding to set your own node up)
Please keep it sensible otherwise I will be forced to remove the link.
