I need to understand what you’re attempting to do. Please fill in the gaps for me?

You have a number of Motorola repeaters and MMDVM devices. You’re trying to make them all talk together on a private network. You do not have any “upstream” connections to the “big networks” or laterals to other independent networks?

Is that right? The use case changes best practice. Also, which “side” has more devices – the Motorola repeaters or the MMDVM devices? Today? Expected in the future?

Oh yes, I forgot to mention that the MMDVM_Bridge is in its own directory with different rx and tx ports in DVSwitch.ini to avoid conflict with the existing bridge.

I downloaded the latest MMDVM_Bridge earlier today. My current issue is getting MMDVM-Bridge connected to XLXD on the same machine. I'm sure I've directly connected a hotspot to the reflector before, but that was a while ago.

The relevant part of MMDVM_Bridge.ini looks like this:


[DMR Network]
Enable=1
Address=127.0.0.1
Port=62030
Jitter=360
Local=62031
Password=passw0rd
Options=XLX:4002
Slot1=0
Slot2=1
Debug=0


Small part of the MMDVM_Bridge log:

E: 2019-11-30 21:34:28.884 DMR, Connection to the master has timed out, retrying connection

tcpdump shows active connections on UDP 62030, so XLXD should be accepting the connection from MMDVM_Bridge on that port.

That was actually the first configuration I tried. Same result either with the Interface IP address, or local loopback. I’ll mess with it some more later. The MMDVM_Bridge part looks easy enough once I can get it talking to XLXD.

Re: Brandmeister to XLX

OK.

I just tried setting up an instance of MMDVM_Bridge to point to 127.0.0.1 on port 62030 (MMDVM) using the DMRNetwork. I thought XLXD responded to that, but apparently it doesn't, as the connection timed out.

PLEASE TAKE NOTICE:

We have asked this many time. If you intend to ask for help, the following are absolutely mandatory. The people who write the software will not supply help if you do not:

* Include the explicit names of the programs you’re running and how they’re connected. This isn’t “HBlink3” it’s probably bridge.py, probably not DMRlink, but IPSC_Bridge.py
* Include copied of configuration files, rule files, etc. The files, or the text NO SCREENSHOTS
* Include any pertinent, tracebacks (errors) and/or log files
* NO SCREENSHOTS

From this moment on, I will not offer or even respond to requests for help if these things are not included. Period.

I can see my hotspot keying and can also see activity in the logfiles for DMRlink. What I am not seeing is traffic passing between the two.

You don't need the full path
systemctl status mmdvm_bridge
systemctl start mmdvm_bridge
ststemctl stop mmdvm_bridge
systemctl enable mmdvm_bridge

What is the result of systemctl status mmdvm_bridge?
what is the result (not just it did not work) of systemctl start mmdvm_bridge?
what is the result of ls /lib/systemd/system/mmdvm_bridge.service?
