Note this change for the KiwiSDR2:

“….Every KiwiSDR 2 has the proxy service enabled by default. So you can connect using the serial number, e.g. 21xxx.kiwisdr.com The serial number is found on the printed sheet inside the shipping box. Also written on the bottom of the metal case. On the admin page, connect tab, you may disable this and use whatever connection method you like (e.g. by domain name, IP address, DUC domain etc). You can also change the proxy name from the serial number to a name you choose (assuming it's not already taken)….”

If you don’t want your KiwiSDR2 accessible from the internet, you will need to disable this.

FYI....

Quote
When you receive your KiwiSDR 2 DO NOT, I repeat DO NOT, do any sort of Debian upgrade from the delivered Debian 11.8. Otherwise you may brick your Kiwi server (Debian should continue to run).

The Beagle guys have been at it again and have changed the way the SPI interface works. I need to understand the change and compensate for it in a later Kiwi release.

Thank you.

Sure, but they would need to know/try every serial number....and easy enough to add a PW for users outside your network.

Got my KiwiSDR2 the other day, thrilled to have my own!

Received mine, but admittedly, it is still in the box. I might get around to initial testing over the weekend.

The Kiwi arrived this morning (Friday 01 Mar 2024). At first glance, the unit is nicely constructed and relatively smaller than anticipated. It measures no more than 5" x 3". Something new to play with over the weekend.

Orders being accepted now for the second production run.

The devs are ordering parts for a third production run, too.



BTW, mine is working fine. :) Just not public, and it probably will not be until I get it off an USB switching power supply and decide on an antenna.
