Oh yes... I do, I should have mentioned that.

Do you have TG 3100 setup as static on the self care page for that DMR ID?

Thanks Steve and Cort, 

In that case you need multiple “master” instances set up and use the rules to bridge between them.

I suspected maybe this was the case, so thanks for clarifying. 

 Are you running hblink.py or hb_confbridge.py? hb_confbridge.py sub-class' (or calls if you wish) hblink.py

I am running hb_confbridge.py. I understand the first piece now, but concerning the second piece (Brandmeister) should I be seeing traffic using the configuration I have? 

Thanks,

Hi guys, 
    I am getting my feet wet with HBlink and doing some minimal testing. I had some questions on a few things: 

For starters, one planned use of a master is for my hotspots only, as such I have defined this: 

# hotspots
[K1LNX-HOTSPOTS-MASTER]
MODE: MASTER
ENABLED: True
REPEAT: False
EXPORT_AMBE: False
IP:
PORT: 57890
PASSPHRASE: xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
GROUP_HANGTIME: 5

If I specify explicit bridging rules in hb_confbridge_rules.py, can I leave REPEAT: set to False? My understanding is that if it's set to TRUE it routes all traffic regardless. I am trying to explicitly route certain talkgroups to and from this master with 2-3 hotspots connected. Here is what I set in hb_confbridge_rules.py (note, K1LNX-REPEATERS-MASTER is another system built identical to the HOTSPOTS master):

BRIDGES = {
    'LNXNET': [
            {'SYSTEM': 'K1LNX-HOTSPOTS-MASTER', 'TS': 2, 'TGID': 5780, 'ACTIVE': True, 'TIMEOUT': 2, 'TO_TYPE': 'NONE', 'ON': [], 'OFF': []},
            {'SYSTEM': 'K1LNX-REPEATERS-MASTER', 'TS': 1, 'TGID': 5780, 'ACTIVE': True, 'TIMEOUT': 2, 'TO_TYPE': 'NONE', 'ON': [], 'OFF': []}
        ],

I don't have any ability to test this yet, but I assume this will work as configured? I think this will pass traffic from "K1LNX-HOTSPOTS-MASTER" to "K1LNX-REPEATERS-MASTER" but what about passing to directly connected clients on the HOTSPOTS master? 

Next question is concerning a client connection to Brandmeister. I created a client in hblink.cfg: 

# Brandmeister 3108
[BM-3108]
MODE: CLIENT
ENABLED: True
EXPORT_AMBE: False
IP:
PORT: 62030
MASTER_PORT: 62031
PASSPHRASE: xxxxxxxxxx
CALLSIGN: K1LNX
RADIO_ID: xxxxxxxxx
RX_FREQ: 436500000
TX_FREQ: 436500000
TX_POWER: 1
COLORCODE: 1
SLOTS: 2
LATITUDE: 035.9617
LONGITUDE: -083.9234
HEIGHT: 0
LOCATION: Knoxville, TN, USA
DESCRIPTION: K1LNX MMDVM
URL:
SOFTWARE_ID: 20170620
PACKAGE_ID: MMDVM
GROUP_HANGTIME: 5
OPTIONS: 

It seems to login to the server with no issues, so I created an entry for 3100 for testing to see if I can get traffic: 

  'BM-3100': [
            {'SYSTEM': 'K1LNX-HOTSPOTS-MASTER', 'TS': 2, 'TGID': 3100, 'ACTIVE': True, 'TIMEOUT': 2, 'TO_TYPE': 'NONE', 'ON': [], 'OFF': []},
            {'SYSTEM': 'BM-3108', 'TS': 2, 'TGID': 3100, 'ACTIVE': True, 'TIMEOUT': 2, 'TO_TYPE': 'NONE', 'ON': [], 'OFF': []},
    ]

I connected my OpenSPOT to the HOTSPOTS master, but I do not appear to be getting traffic from 3100. 

Do my configs look correct? Should this work as-is? 

tnx and 73
