Re: Brandmeister to XLX


If I see a red thumb on my server it means there is something  wrong. Failed to start ambeserver. Ports not set. XLX not started properly. Taking a hard drive from another machine. XLX looks for the old IP address.
Looking for faults in xlx is for another forum.
Happy to help with MB as I've had most of problems that everyone has. I make sure both sides are working then fill in the puzzel.

Subject: Re: [DVSwitch] Brandmeister to XLX

The red thumb just indicates that the system is not reporting it's Ip to the XLX database server, and hence will be dropped out of the host files.

It is not an indication of any dstar traffic issue. The dstar side looks ok, and I test connected.

It is the DMR side that has the issue., 62030 UDP port block tested here, and really the

reflector needs setting up properly, regarding port forwarding and configuration. It doesn't look finished re xlxd setup.

Xlx679 has got a red thumb. That's your problem. It's not working. No traffic will pass from the dstar side
