Re: not connecting to Brandmeister still

Steve N4IRS
 

Mark,
Here is what I suggest:
Test with hblink.dvswitch.org That will tell you if you have your config correct.
I would think, and I can't speak for the US BM admins, You could run a quick test of connectivity to 3108.

Did you look at the wiki page I sent?

There is a BIG error in the diagram. It should be:

HB_Bridge is not needed. That's what I get for copy and paste.

So, IPSC_Bridge uses both dmrlink.cfg and IPSC_bridge.cfg.  The dmrlink.cfg defines the connection to the cbridge and I see it connected on the control center. IPSC_Bridge.cfg defines the connection to HB_Bridge. Is that defined in the HB_Bridge.cfg or hblink.cfg?

Yes

On the hb_bridge I am a little confused. Does the hb_bridge.cfg connect to analog_bridge? Does the ambe need to match what is in analog_bridge?

This is what I think it should be...

cbridge <-> dmrlink <-> hblink <-> hb_bridge_all <-> mb1 <-> ab1 <-> ab2 <-> mb2 <-> p25gateway <-> p25reflector

As of right now, I have dmrlink connect to the c bridge and when I tail the log, I can see traffic from dmr. Same on the other side. I have mb2 connectd thru the p25gateway to my p25 reflector. When I tail the log, I can see the p25 traffic. 

Just need some help between the cbridge and mb1 :-)

I am trying to setup a bridge between my C Bridge port and my P25 Reflector. When looking at older post I see reference to IPSC_Bridge and HB_bridge. Are those no longer applicable? Do I just use dmrlink and hb_bridge_all ? 

This is what I think it should be...

cbridge <-> dmrlink <-> hblink <-> hb_bridge_all <-> mb1 <-> ab1 <-> ab2 <-> mb2 <-> p25gateway <-> p25reflector

As of right now, I have dmrlink connect to the c bridge and when I tail the log, I can see traffic from dmr. Same on the other side. I have mb2 connectd thru the p25gateway to my p25 reflector. When I tail the log, I can see the p25 traffic. 

Just need some help between the cbridge and mb1 :-)

All,

I am trying to setup a bridge between my C Bridge port and my P25 Reflector. When looking at older post I see reference to IPSC_Bridge and HB_bridge. Are those no longer applicable? Do I just use dmrlink and hb_bridge_all ? 

This is what I think it should be...

cbridge <-> dmrlink <-> hblink <-> hb_bridge_all <-> mb1 <-> ab1 <-> ab2 <-> mb2 <-> p25gateway <-> p25reflector

As of right now, I have dmrlink connect to the c bridge and when I tail the log, I can see traffic from dmr. Same on the other side. I have mb2 connectd thru the p25gateway to my p25 reflector. When I tail the log, I can see the p25 traffic. 

Just need some help between the cbridge and mb1 :-)

I tried running ./MMDVM_Bridge MMDVM_Bridge.ini  per page 10 of the how to.  I got "unable to run log file" or something close to that so I did not get the feedback of "Logged into the master successfully" per page 11 of the howto.

I am running this on the vultr cloud server.  Anyone have an idea?

thanks
