Adding D-star and/or P25

mark rosenberg
 

Ok, so my next question is regarding adding D-star and/or p25 to the Allstar DMR Bridge.  I would LOVE to be able to use the cloud-based server to also connect D-star / P25 to Allstar.  Especially P25 because I have D-star access on my Openspot..but P25...that is another matter.

thanks

Re: Bridge problem solved...working well.

I ditched the server and rebuilt it using your instructions.  My previous installation was based on a different method.  I recommend following the how to and go slow.  Once you know it then it isn't difficult and the install is quick, but the first time...go slow.

Thanks

Additions for *confbridge.py

Cort N0MJS <n0mjs@...>
 

Folks,

I’m preparing for a pretty big feature add for confbridge.py and hb_confbridge.py. I’m going to be adding voice telemetry response to linking actions – that means voice feedback to tell you what’s happening (if you want) when on-demand or timer actions take place.

This is a lot of work, especially on the IPSC side, where I’m going to start. One of the huge issues is getting audio files encoded to “AMBE72” and “AMBE49”. I’d rather be able to focus on one at a time – adding the voice, or getting the pre-encoded AMBE files built. I’d like to work on the mechanics in confbridge first.

Yes, I know, there are pieces out there from various sources to do this. What I’m asking for is someone to package them into a utility and verify they work as expected, and write up, clearly the format of the AMBE files produced. I’m looking for anyone out there who has done this, or wants to take it on to provide a packaged utility to ingest “normal” audio files, like .wav, etc. and output AMBE72 and AMBE49, and clearly define the format of the data in the AMBE files. That way I can focus on whether or not the telemetry pieces work, including crafting IPSC packets from scratch, and not have to wonder whether or not I’ve got a me problem, or an AMBE problem.

If you’re interested, please speak up, on or off list.

I'll check

7) What is the difference between issuing a command like:
./Analog_Bridge ./Analog_Bridge_DMR.ini  versus ./Analog_Bridge Analog_Bridge_DMR.ini ?
Nothing

8) Should the different MMDVM_Bridge instances be placed in different directories or does it matter?  Similarly the same question for Analog_Bridge.
Can be, but may not need be.

BEST I can tell by watching the foreground is the PCM conversion is happening in one direction only.  Somehow the USRP is only working DMR-> DSTAR and not the other way around.  This would seem to indicate the ports are not inverted on each side.  But, they are.  So now what?
If D-Star -> DMR is not working, follow it through the chain. Run everything in the foreground. Does MMDVM_Bridge see the traffic? Yes? No? if no, stop and troubleshoot. Do not go to the next step until you see the traffic.

Mark,
The distorted audio message you are hearing from BrandMeister is the word blocked. BrandMeister has a "loop detector" that is supposed to stop a condition where someone with a hotspot locks up a TG.
Change the minTxTimeMS In Analog_Bridge.ini:

[AMBE_AUDIO]
minTxTimeMS = 2500

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?
Just like connecting any of the partners, TX to RX and RX to TX (or words to that effect) Analog_Bridge [AMBE_AUDIO] stanza points to the values in the HB_Bridge [DEFAULTS] stanza.

Ok, so let me see if I got it correct. So basically all 3 of them use the same port numbers just changing the TX and RX? 

IPSC_Bridge.cfg                     HB_Bridge.cfg                  Analog_Bridge.ini
fromgateway: 31100              fromGateway: 31103         from: 31100
toGateway: 31103                  toGateway: 31100            to: 31103

Okay, making progress! I am stumped on the last piece. 

I am trying to figure out the connection between ipsc_bridge and hb_bridge. 

On ipsc_bridge, I have the dmrlink.cfg connecting to the cbridge and can see traffic from the cbridge in the log. Does the ipsc_bridge.cfg connect to hb_bridge.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?
Just like connecting any of the partners, TX to RX and RX to TX (or words to that effect) Analog_Bridge [AMBE_AUDIO] stanza points to the values in the HB_Bridge [DEFAULTS] stanza.

[AMBE]
EXPORT_IP: 127.0.0.1
EXPORT_PORT: 1234
Ignore these

Thank you! 

What is your recommendation on running 2 analog bridges? Do I make a new directory and copy the analog_bridge files into it? How can I run 2 at a time? Do I use systemctl?

Walk through it one module at a time. You should see the traffic at each step.

Success! Do I need to change anything else under [AMBE_AUDIO] for Analog_bridge_2?

You need to make sure the P25 TX and RX ports in DVSwitch.ini point to the proper ports in Analog_Bridge.ini

Okay, trying to take this in small steps and not fry my noodle.

I am working from P25 reflector to c bridge. I have the p25 reflector up and running. I can see my voice traffic on the P25Gateway log and the MMDVM_Bridge log.

Is there anything else I need change in MMDVM_Bridge.ini? I have changed the following:

[General]
Callsign=KD5DFB
Id=314838

[P25]
Enable=1

[P25 Network]
Enable=1

On Analog_Bridge.ini

toASLPort = 32001 
fromASLPort = 34001  

Should I see any traffic if I tail the log or run it ./Analog_Bridge

IPSC_Bridge and HB_Bridge sub-class dmrlink and hblink. In other words, dmrlink and hblink are the network stack for IPSC_Bridge and HB_Bridge. So you configure hblink.cfg and hblink.cfg.
You will also need to install dmr_utils. Someday I hope IPSC_Bridge and HB_Bridge get merged into the master branches. One could only hope.

Okay, interesting... When I looked at the github under master they are not there. I had to change to branch to IPSC_bridge and HB-Bridge

So, When I look at the IPSC_Bridge.cfg. I only see this. How to I tell it to connect to the cbridge as a peer? 


# IPSC_Bridge configuration file #

##################################


# DEFAULTS - General settings. These values are

# inherited in each subsequent section (defined by section value).


[DEFAULTS]

gateway = 127.0.0.1 # IP address of Partner Application (HB_Bridge, Analog_Bridge)

fromGatewayPort = 31000 # Port IPSC_Bridge is listening on for data (IPSC_Bridge <--- Partner)

toGatewayPort = 31003 # Port Partner is listening on for data (IPSC_Bridge ---> Partner)

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 :-)

Re: not connecting to Brandmeister still

mark rosenberg
 

I logged my rfshark openspot out of dmr and i was able to see the virtual mode on the brandmeister website ok.. i will try to finish it tomorrow...it's 0100 here...gn and thanks!

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?

If you have time for Teamviewer or some other way to get in to look at the files then let me know...I am usually near the computer.

problem solved more or less

mark rosenberg
 

my openspot sharkrf which was logged into DMR on the same network was messing up the MMDVM_Bridge attempts to stay logged into Brandmeister.

I switched the shark over to Dstart and now the Bridge is staying logged into Brandmeister.

Thanks

Corey's IP idea worked ..kind of...

mark rosenberg
 

Ok, so Corey's idea of using the ip of the server as the host server name worked a bit.  I was able to run the debug and got the result 

Logged into master successfully
Login to master has failed, retrying login...
Connection to the master has timed out, retrying connection
Closing DMR Network
Opening DMR Network
Sending Authorisation
Sending Configuration
Logged into master successfully
Login to the mater has failed, retrying login...

this repeats itself.  when I used the name "brandmeister-il.ddns.net"  it wouldn't login at all...with the ip address I got the above paragraph

thanks
