Good point Steve, I had tunnel vision and didn't consider DVSM as the method.


Re: D-Star Reflectors

You are correct about the files used by ircDDBGateway. They are not the same files used by DVSM (though they are the source files) To manage the reflector list displayed on DVSM, see <https://dvswitch.groups.io/g/Mobile/files/DVSwitch%20Installation%20and%20User%20Guide%20v1.61.pdf> starting on page 8.

You can modify any of these to include the reflector that you want to reach. The DExtra_Host.txt file is where you'll add XLX reflectors but they will be called XRF in the hosts file instead of XLX. Whenever possible use the ip address of the reflector being added.

Pay special attention to the format. These are treated as data files and they use delimiters to separate the data on a line. Typically they well be tab delimited but I've seen them in comma and semi-colon also.

Example:
XRF953<TAB>207.246.104.15

Regardless, follow the format of the existing file and you'll usually have success.

The files are often in different locations so you may have to hunt for them. In ircDDBGateway they are in /usr/share/ircddbgateway/ if you performed a make install. Pi-Star has it's own instructions, openSpot has a different method, etc.

There are few D-Star reflectors in the list, how can you add more?


Re: time out on an allstar node with dvswitch

Does this happen connected to node 100? (Demo node at the bottom of the account list)

Re: time out on an allstar node with dvswitch

Can you better describe the event, timing ? how long till disconnect, is it the same every time ?

Can you watch the verbose output in asterisk when the event happens ? what does it say ?

rpt.conf is in /etc/asterisk

Sounds like you should let someone with a little more experience look your configs over for the issue.

Is this on a PI or PC, is it standard issue asl or hamvoip ? Is the node connected to your network on wifi ?

Re: time out on an allstar node with dvswitch

Mike KB8JNM
 

It belongs in rpt.conf

with the node stanza that is disconnecting.

I don't know that it is your problem as I do not know your set-up.

Just a guess because I have to.

You should watch the verbose output of asterisk when it disconnects and share that string of data with us.

The nodes you are connecting to, are they private or public ? describe the ones that are disconnecting. verify.
