For the first time, I have to set up a linkstar with telnet.
It's all ok, but i am not able to set latitude and longitude with SAVEBOOTPARMS -lat -lon. When i control the configuration with DBPR BOOTCONF latitude and longitude are always 0.
I'm sure to insert correct value, with converting degrees minutes seconds.
Could you help me?

If you need to know your latitude and longitude please try this page Lat - Long Finder.

It will also tell you the azimuth, elevation and polarisation angles for your satellite dish at the same time.  Select the satellite, then click progresssively on the map and magnify until you arrive at your site.

Best regards, Eric.
