Re: IPSC/HB bridges; CC links

Ok thanks so much to both of you, I think I’ve got it now. If not, you know I’ll be back. We have a couple of MMDVM repeaters set up here, currently on BrandMeister. We enjoy the flexibility and the ability to play around with things like text messages and private calls, but probably 95% of the DMR repeaters in our neck of the woods are DMR-MARC. What I’d eventually like to do is talk to the folks who have the local c-Bridges and see if they would allow us access to the statewide talkgroups.
Speaking of text messages private calls – can either of you tell me, is there a way to instruct hb_confbridge host to route them, or at least to send them all through to one connected network?

You can specify an alternate configuration file on the command line — and that’s how I run them all. Steve likes to make full copies, and that’s probably a great way to do it. I’m a little more old school and run them out of the same location with -c
Cortneys-MacBook-Pro:HBlink cort$ python hb_confbridge.py --help
usage: hb_confbridge.py [-h] [-c CONFIG_FILE] [-l LOG_LEVEL]
-h, --help show this help message and exit
-c CONFIG_FILE, --config CONFIG_FILE
/full/path/to/config.file (usually hblink.cfg)
-l LOG_LEVEL, --logging LOG_LEVEL
Override config file logging level.
Today, I’m running it this way:
Note the thing missing is hb_confbridge.py because I have only 2 MMDVM repeaters, and I let them both carry the same traffic (like peers on a single IPSC system). I pick up all of my “northbound” TGID traffic from confbridge.py (DMRlink) with Brandmeister, DMR-MARC via c-Bridge, etc.
That looks like a crazy string of things running, but they still seem to use a marginal amount of resources….. not sure if this helps or not, Rob…. but the thing definitely, right now, is to put confbridge.py (IPSC) and hb_confbridge.py (HBP) between the actual repeaters and HB_Bridge and IPSC_Bridge respectively.
