Re: error while installing quantar

That is what it is supposed to do.
It's waiting for traffic from MMDVM_Bridge on a TG to tell it what reflector to connect to.
Unless, you want it to startup on a particular reflector.

This says, connect to the reflector for TG 3166.
If P25Gateway is pointed to another reflector and there is no activity, P25Gateway will revert to TG 3166
