Question:  How to run at boot time.

Allstar-DMR Gateway is working.

Goal is to have Allstar-DMR Gateway to start running at boot time.
Script runs at boot time          /etc/init.d/DMR-Gateway.sh       (rights set to execute)

After boot, after logging in as   root  then    top    shows first command ran (I can see the process) HOWEVER second command did not.  WHY?
(after boot I can login as root and run  second command - it runs fine)
How to fix?  --pete  N0ECT

(DMR-Gateway.sh  script below)

#!/bin/sh

sleep 20
cd /opt/Analog_Bridge

sudo ./Analog_Bridge ./Analog_Bridge.ini

sleep 20

cd /opt/HBlink

sudo python ./HB_Bridge.py -c ./hblink.cfg

#end

Thanks to Steve and everyone that's been helping me the past week or so get the AllStar node and DVSwitch up and going! It's all in the cloud too so even an extra shutout for the AWS support as well!

This group is a great place for ideas and testing. Many thanks all around.

Ed,
Not that I think this is the cause, but so I can do some troubleshooting, what master are you connected to?

If you are using Echolink too, I'm pretty sure you need 5198-5199 as well.

You are correct, no port forwarding needed for BM.
You will need UDP 4569 forwarded to the AllStarLink host for inbound connections. No other ports needed.

I know that my Pi-Star (node) does not require me to forward any TCP/UDP ports from my firewall back to it...So I'm guessing I don't need to forward any special ports to support the BM Talk Groups from my new Allstar/DMR Gateway.

Thanks to Steve and everyone that's been helping me the past week or so get the AllStar node and DVSwitch up and going! It's all in the cloud too so even an extra shutout for the AWS support as well!

I'm not exactly sure what I did to fix it (maybe Steve got a chance to remote in?). 
After turning off the courtesy tones I had a full convo with someone on DMR while I was on AllStar. Maybe the hang time or tones were blocking/interfering with the DMR side?

Thanks to Steve and everyone that's been helping me the past week or so get the AllStar node and DVSwitch up and going! It's all in the cloud too so even an extra shutout for the AWS support as well!

This group is a great place for ideas and testing. Many thanks all around.

locked DVSwitch sub groups

Steve N4IRS
 
Edited

We have created a few sub groups to better help people find the information they are looking for. Those groups are:

Quantar-Bridge
Discuss connecting Motorola P25 repeaters (Quantar) with the MMDVM P25 Network.

AllStarLink
Discuss deployment and configuration of AllStarLink as it will be used with other DVSwitch Partners for bridging to digital networks.

HBlink
Discuss building and extending HB networks using the power of HBlink.

Support
Long term support discussion

We are working hard to write documentation. This will be in addition to pages we are adding the the wiki(s)

Is there anyway to turn these off?

from another mailing list I set this:
nounkeyct=1          ; Removes RF side courtesy tone (remotetx) - Link Side

I'm still hearing courtesy tones and node connect/disconnects on DMR.

My guess is because it's the USRP behaves different than radio?

Any ideas?

set duplex to duplex=0 in your allstar node stanza for that node.

Half duplex with no telemetry tones or hang time. Special Case: Full duplex if linktolink is set to yes. This mode is preferred when interfacing with an external multiport repeater controller.

Russel,
Here is the suggested node settings for a USRP connection:
[1999]
rxchannel = USRP/127.0.0.1:34001:32001  ; Use the USRP channel driver. Must be enabled in modules.conf
                    ; 127.0.0.1 = IP of the target application
                    ; 34001 = UDP port the target application is listening on
                    ; 32001 = UDP port ASL is listening on

duplex = 0                ; 0 = Half duplex with no telemetry tones or hang time. Ah, but Allison STILL talks!

hangtime = 0                ; squelch tail hang time 0
althangtime = 0                ; longer squelch tail hang time 0

holdofftelem = 1            ; Hold off all telemetry when signal is present on receiver or from connected nodes
                    ; except when an ID needs to be done and there is a signal coming from a connected node.

telemdefault = 0            ; 0 = telemetry output off. Don't send Allison to DMR !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Trust me.

telemdynamic = 0            ; 0 = disallow users to change the local telemetry setting with a COP command,

linktolink = no                ; disables forcing physical half-duplex operation of main repeater while
                    ; still keeping half-duplex semantics (optional)

nounkeyct = 1                ; Set to a 1 to eliminate courtesy tones and associated delays.

totime = 180000                ; transmit time-out time (in ms) (optional, default 3 minutes 180000 ms)

idrecording = |ie            ; id recording or morse string see http://ohnosec.org/drupal/node/87
idtalkover = |ie            ; Talkover ID (optional) default is none see http://ohnosec.org/drupal/node/129

Sorry about the formatting, I'll add this to the wiki and fix the formatting.
