     I am running Windows 10 and I can't make Echolink work. I have port forwarded 5198 and 5199 to my desktop. Port 5200 is ok with TCP. When I do firewall/router test, the TCP succeeds but UDP fails and the dialog box says I'm running Windows Vista (which I'm not).
  
     I can't even connect to test server. My mic and speaker settings seems to be ok. I even turned off the Windows firewall. I don't know what's wrong and I need help. Thanks and 73s.

NOTE: When I woke up this morning and checked Echolink, it was working! It must have been a system error or something. No need for response anymore, problem solved itself....73s

I am running Echolink just fine on Windows 10. Have you checked your router to see if it is blocking access to the internet? I have a feeling it is your router doing the blocking?

You should probably also uninstall Echolink-- reboot the machine -- and then reinstall Echolink just to make sure everything setup OK during installation.

Echolink is NOT Ham Radio so maybe the Geek Squad can help you out.

That, or you might try the FAQ on Skype tech support page. Because that's what Echolink really is.

About 2 years ago I was traveling abroad and had my Echolink iPhone App on my phone so I decided to email a friend in the country and set up a sked with this ham, so that I would log into his local repeater to have a QSO with him.

 I got on the repeater a bit early so I called and called CQ to see if any locals were on the air.  No response after numerous calls until about 15 minutes later when the Scheduled time had arrived and my friend answered me.  As soon as he answered and we talked for about 5 minutes, all of a sudden about 3 or 4 other hams came in one after the other.  I was kind of puzzled and asked them did anybody hear me earlier and they said yes but they are tired of echolink so they never answer anybody that comes on with the prerecorded echo link call sign.   They said the only reason they have not gotten rid of it completely was that they had one or two hams who had migrated to the USA and they listened out for them, but only for them.
I had no idea how hated echolink seems to be in other countries.  They went on and on about how at 3am they get the beeping sounds and some idiot is calling from the other side of the globe or he says nothing and is just checking.  They told me they use to leave on their radios at night in case anyone had an emergency but now they leave them off because of the constant echolink testers.
