Error with remote node admin

I’m trying to remotely administer a node that I’m setting up as a repeater. I setup the secondary admin channel and URL settings on the two testing devices. When I attempt to connect to the remote node, I get this error: Error on response: MAX_RETRANSMIT

Does anyone have any ideas about this error? Online docs only mention this: We reached the max retransmission count (typically for naive flood routing). Not sure what that means or how to fix it. Thanks!

That means the message sent is not getting a response.

So in other words, that the channel settings on the two devices are different, if I understand @garth correctly. @ki6uve could you verify if this could be the reason for the failure?

I’m having the same issue and I’ve configured mine with the same url to program the channel info to be exactly the same. I don’t think that feature is working properly yet and will make maintaining a remote repeater difficult.

This is one of the main things that is being fixed in 1.3, config is broken into parts so it can fit in a message

Just loaded version 2 on my tbeam, anyone know how to set up an admin channel or is the primary channel now the admin channel?

You create a channel with the name admin
