Re: Multiple private nodes connected to different talkgroups

Russell,
As per usual there is more then one way to do this. He is a simple one:
Create 4 subdirectories:
mkdir MMDVM_Bridge_TG_1234
mkdir  MMDVM_Bridge_TG_9876
mkdir Analog_Bridge_TG_1234
mkdir Analog_Bridge_TG_9876

Copy the contents of /opt/MMDVM_Bridge into the new MMDVM_Bridge directories.
Copy the contents of /opt/Analog_Bridge into the new Analog_Bridge directories.
Setup MMDVM_Bridge_TG_1234 to connect to TG 1234 on BM as normal
Setup Analog_Bridge_TG_1234 to connect to TG 1234 as normal and point it at Private node 1234

The assumption is you used the default port numbers Check your work.
Now come the change, You can not reuse the port numbers you chose for TG 1234 so:
In the MMDVM_Bridge_TG_9876 directory edit DVSwitch.ini to change the port numbers in the [DMR] stanza
Make it easy to see the change
[DMR]
Address = 127.0.0.1             ; Address to send AMBE TLV frames to (export)
TXPort = 36100                     ; Port to send AMBE TLV frames to (export)
RXPort = 36103                     ; Port to listen on (import)
Slot = 2                                   ; Export slot

In the Analog_Bridge_TG_9876 directory edit Analog_Bridge.ini to change the port numbers in the [AMBE_AUDIO] stanza
Match the ports use in DVSwitch.ini
[AMBE_AUDIO]
address = 127.0.0.1                     ; IP address of xx_Bridge
txPort = 36103                          ; Transmit TLV frames to partner on this port
rxPort = 36100                          ; Listen for TLV frames from partner on this port

As with MMDVM_Bridge <-> Analog_Bridge where you can not reuse the port numbers, It's the same for Analog_Bridge <-> ASL.
In the Analog_Bridge_TG_9876 directory edit Analog_Bridge.ini to change the port numbers in the [USRP] stanza
[USRP]
address = 127.0.0.1                     ; IP address of USRP partner (Allstar/Asterisk or another Analog_Bridge)
txPort = 38001                          ; Transmit USRP frames on this port
rxPort = 39001                          ; Listen for USRP frames on this port

Match the above port numbers for private node 9876 in rpt.conf

Does that help?

I don't have a lot of experience with private nodes but I've been working on a personal hub that is working fine with DVSwitch.

What I envision is having multiple instances of the DVSwitch (Analog/MMDVM/DVSwitch) with each instance using a different talk group. I would dedicate a private node to the different talk groups then use the main hub (public) to connect to the private nodes on the fly using  Allmon to link up the different private nodes. I would need to move the existing TG from the public hub to a private so by default nothing is linked unless I tell it to in Allmon.

I also do know how to setup multiple instances of DVSwich.

Any guidance on this?
