Re: P25Reflector install help...

Actually, if you do that, Pi-Star will overwrite your changes. There is a process for adding custom hosts that survive a update.

You edit the P25Hosts.txt file to reflect the details to the P25 reflector you are wanting to connect to.  Save it the do a quick reboot.

You should then be able to select it in Pi-Star

I'm not sure I understand your answer....maybe if I rephrase--


How do I get my P25 reflector/TG to show up in the pulldown in the P25 section of the configuration screen of every Pi-Star hotspot in existence?

Thanks, that clears that up.


Another question is, what determines whether the TG shows up automatically in everyone's P25Hosts.txt (ie. "published"?)

The P25Reflector software does not actually care what TG it reflects. When the reflector sees UDP traffic on the proper port, it reflects it to all connected users.
The program that determines what TG, is actually P25Gateway in it's host file:

# 10200 North America
10200        41000

This tells P25Gateway, when you see traffic on TG 10200 send the traffic to ( on UDP port 41000.
As to the name, again it's in the P25Gateway host file.

I'm having some difficulty while installing the whole package (G4-somebody/dvswitch) using the instructions (which is riddled with typos);
I've read everything I've been able to google, both here and elsewhere, but I'm stuck on a concept or two:

What (and WHERE or WHO) determines what your newly installed P25 reflector's TG ID is?

I probably will choose not to publish the TG (at first, at least) but where do I give it its name? I saw a thread where Steve says some ppl are using the same #
as their chosen DMR TG (which already exists; I'm trying to link them)?
