Bridging a P25Reflector and a YSFReflector?

Mike, KI0IK
 

I have a working P25Reflector and a YSFReflector.  I would like to bridge the two together so if someone is connected to the P25Reflector they could talk to someone connected to the YSFReflector.  Which DVSwitch program would be best for this?  MMDVM_Bridge? I read through the Wiki, and searched the messages, but I'm drawing a blank.

Thanks
Mike

that may be true but how to you direct it to the specific xlxreflector and module.  its located on the same machine as xblink.  i want the audio to be bridged with audio already on myhblink.cfg

Sounds great, I'll have a word with our DMR+ (IPSC2) provider, thanks for all your hard work!

Folks,

Excuse the cross-post, but this is kinda big news.

Several of us have been running the OpenBridge branch of HBlink for a couple of weeks and it is close to being merged into the main branch.

OpenBridge is a way to, essentially, trunk many call streams at the same time between HBlink, Brandmeister, DMR+ and DMR-MARC. Brandmeister has indicated willingness to provide OpenBridge connections to network operators using HBlink – in fact, it was the BM team who suggested we add support for it and they would happily allow those connections (they don’t like us using HBP connections for downstream network traffic). I do not yet know whether DMR+ or DMR-MARC will be willing to provide the same, but the technical capabilities are now available for an independent network operator to take “trunk” type feeds from all of the major networks, without masquerading as repeaters.

Anyone looking to get upstream feeds OpenBridge feeds from the “big networks” must work those arrangements out with those network operators, and I strongly discourage chaining OB to OB to OB to avoid those upstream connections. The best way to use OB is between your independent network and a direct connection to one of the International networks, and direct connections between your network and other regional operators. Passing national/international network traffic between multiple independent regional networks is likely to cause performance problems sooner or later.

Re: Why does not it show alias id in Europe in the HBlink Master?

Cort N0MJS <n0mjs@...>
 

Well, I didn’t put in code that programmatically excludes Europe, so the file is missing the entries, or the formatting of the European lines are different and they’re being rejected. How does the format of the file you’re downloading compare between a European and a North American entry?

Re: IPSC Peers not Registering with each other

Michael Eckhoff (K5MRE)
 

Cort,

Thank you for the response, and my apologies for taking so long in responding.  I wanted to check things over again before coming back with more logs and just found the time.

I'm glad I did because it's now working.  It ended up being my iptables rules.  I was allowing port 50000 in my output chain, but not my input chain.  So it could send out the link to the other node, but couldn't accept the inbound link from it.

Thanks again!

Michael (K5MRE)

Re: dahdi/pseudo problem

Marco IW0RED
 

Hi, I have the same problem but after dpkg-reconfigure I get this:
Loading new asl-dahdi-linux-2.11.1 DKMS files...
First Installation: checking all kernels...
Building only for 4.1.6-voyage
Building for architecture i386
Module build for the currently running kernel was skipped since the
kernel source for this kernel does not seem to be installed.

I checked:
root@panelpc:~# dpkg --list | egrep -i --color 'linux-image|linux-headers'
ii  linux-headers-4.1.6-voyage   17.2-1                           i386         Header files related to Linux kernel, specifically,
ii  linux-image-4.1.6-voyage     17.2-1                           i386         Linux kernel binary image for version 4.1.6-voyage

What's wrong?

Re: Multiple instances of Bridge

Hello, 

I just created an Allstar DMR bridge using the how to guide which was great.  This is really neat stuff!

If I want to setup another private node for Dstar I just create another set of folders with the executables and ini files? This second instance will load on startup? 

I understand how the ports will need to be configured but I need more details on the multiple instances. 

Thank you,

Re: Will it be possible in the future to interconnect HYTERA repeaters with HBLINK?

Igor Videc
 

Chris,

I haven't tried myself but you should look into Hytera-DMRGateway as implemented in Austria:

http://ham-dmr.at/index.php/dmr-gateway/
and
https://www.a23-wertheim.de/downloads/dmr/dmrgateway-2/file/35-dmrgateway-image-a23-17062018-zip

I think this way you could connect DMRGateway to HBlink.

Re: Any help to develop hbmonitor?

EA5GVK Joaquin
 

Ok, Perfect.
HBmonitor it:
https://github.com/n0mjs710/HBmonitor
But now. Not available.
Its creator has removed it from the github.
I do not know why.
Maybe he's working to improve it.
Yes, you want jay I can pass a copy of the HBmonitor, to work on it.
The beauty of this is sharing knowledge.
Greetings.

I am sorry if I disparaged the BM servers or the people that keep them up and I deeply apologize for that.

I have had some issues with different BM servers not talking to each other sometimes and it segments my network when that happens.
I understand that can happen occasionally since the BM servers are carrying so much traffic and doing so many things.

I was looking for a way to just connect our cluster together on one small server for ultra reliability. If there is such a thing, since we are talking about internet connections (ahem.. Cable companies. lol)

Anyway, I really appreciate EVERYTHING you guys have done and I am a huge proponent of BM. I believe in open networks that bring modes and people together instead of segmenting them.

Again, I sincerely apologize for saying anything negative about the work you guys do.

Oh, I forgot to mention that and all this is free of charge and puts the system manager in control!

Re: Will it be possible in the future to interconnect HYTERA repeaters with HBLINK?

Chris WB4ULK
 

Steve,

I know I have seen it mentioned before that someone was willing to send a Hytera repeater and the response was "Maybe when I have the time". Close to that anyway.

If anyone has reached the point where they have the time or the inclination to look into it, I will be glad to send out a Hytera repeater for that exploration.

I'm not pushing, just want to offer.

Chris
