Re: ASL <-> D-Star <-> xlxd

As I found, without 127.0.0.1 xlxd is not listening on any UDP ports. I did not think xlxd HAD to be used with a vocoder if all it was to do is be a D-Star reflector.
Not high on my list of things to care about, I was just playing and or bringing up a test D-Star or DMR or YSF reflector.

If I am not mistaken the 127.0.0.1 is supposed to be ambed.

So,
I was playing around this morning. I'll preface this as I can't even spell xlxd.
I find xlxd listens on a number of UDP ports, some of which conflict with ircDDBGateway.
This is a systemctl status after starting xlxd on a DVSwitch Server

It seems the default startup for xlxd is: xlxd XLX999 192.168.178.212 127.0.0.1
Question, what is xlxd listening to 127.0.0.1 for?
If I start xlxd without the 127.0.0.1 address, the daemon starts with no error.

AH! if I start xlxd without 127.0.0.1 it starts, but is not listening to any UDP ports...

Comments?
