Re: P25Gateway Inactivity Timeout Behavior


Very strange.

This is an example of what I observed last night:

I see no reason it would change. It's just that I tested with the current version as shown in the included logs so I know it's working. As far as I know it always worked that way.

I will try doing this later.

Can you think of why this would have changed all the sudden?  I have two installations which are now behaving this way.

I only realized this because the past few days I was noticing there hasn’t been much chatter on the TG. Also, when I keyed my radio, I would get the “Pacific” annunciation which was an indication that the talkgroup had changed. That’s when I started doing some digging.

You might just get away with replacing the binary.

systemctl stop p25gateway
cd /opt/P25Gateway
mv P25Gateway P25Gateway.old
mv P25Gateway.armhf P25Gateway
chmod +x P25Gateway
systemctl start p25gateway

To go "all the way" you will want to replace the binary, the ini and the audio directory from this: <>

Over the past few days I’ve noticed a change in the way the Inactivity timeout works.  I have my system configured with a Startup TG of 10400 and an Inactivity Timer of 10 minutes.  The way I’m accustomed to this working is that if I changed talk groups to something other than 10400 (Startup) and there was inactivity on this new TG for more than 10 minutes, the system would revert back to 10400. This is not the way it is behaving today. I’m not exactly sure what TG is now used as the “Revert” TG.

I’ve looked at the P25Gateway log file and verified that even when operating on 10400, if there is more than 10 minutes of inactivity, I will be unlinked from 10400.

Is this a known current behavior, and if so, what does happen after the inactivity timer expires?
