Get ircDDBGateway talking to DummyRepeater first. Then work on DummyRepeater to ASL

This is what I am struggling with.  If I change the Dummy to 127.0.0.1 it cannot talk to the ircddbgateway.  Why?
I followed Mike's link and the instructions.  I ASSUME that ircddbgateway does not need to be run on BOTH machines.  That would seem stupid.  I have ircddbgateway only running on one machine, 192.168.1.9.

If I use 192.168.1.10, or 0.0.0.0 instead of 127.0.0.1 DummyRepeater will talk to the ircddbgateway fine.  But, this jacks up the linkage to asterisk, despite changing the USRP in rpt.conf to 192.168.1.10  -AND- changing the USRP to 192.168.1.10 in DummyRepeaterThread.cpp, -AND- explicitly sending command lines to change the environment variables USRP address to 192.168.1.10.

It -SEEMS- that if you can't get 127.0.0.1 to work for the DummyRepeater, the whole data flow from DummyRepeater to Asterisk is a no go.

Either that or I am missing something you guys think is implicit.  I've read all the documentation multiple times.  There has to be something assumed in the instructions that isn't explicitly stated.  Either that or my githib version of DummyRepeter from OpenDV is jacked up and the commands I used to compile and make it are insufficient.

Mike,
I have to make a correction. I was kinda on auto pilot Analog_Bridge is NOT used in a D-Star to ASL bridge.
 
Just to make sure you understand the data flow:
ircDDBGateway <---> DummyRepeater <--->  asterisk

The modifications to DR make it talk directly to ASL.

I understand you have ircDDBGateway on a separate machine so the actual address is going to be needed for DummyRepeater to talk to ircDDBGateway
DummyRepeater talks directly to Asterisk This is where the environment variables come into play. DummyRepeater uses the environment variables to know how to communicate with Asterisk. If DR and ASL are on the same machine, 127.0.0.1 is fine.

Forget about the bridge and make DR and IRCDDB work first. Then you can add the bridge 

see:

http://nwdigitalradio.com/install-dummy-repeater-and-ircddbgateway/

To help you configure each component. Then and only then should you set up the AB IP and port. 


Re: Analog Bridge and DStar

Mike, AA9VI
 

OK, I moved the Dummy (repeater 2) to port 20011 and the Hotspot repeater (repeater 1) to port 20012.  Still, Dummy repeater will not relay any traffic if I use the IP address 127.0.0.1.  None.  If I use 192.168.1.10 or 0.0.0.0 it will relay the traffic.  I tried to change the USRP IP in DummyRepeaterThread.cpp to 192.168.1.10 and
$ make clean
$ ./configure  --with-ambeserver --with-stardv
$ make
$ sudo make install

then I reloaded asterisk with
$ sudo astres.sh

I even tried
$ export USRP_IP="10.1.1.2";export USRP_IP
$ export USRP_TXPORT=34001;export USRP_TXPORT
$ export USRP_RXPORT=32001;export USRP_RXPORT

Is the core of the problem that 127.0.0.1 does not work with the thumbDV?  let me clarify.. on the dummyrepeater GUI box that pops up has NO traffic showing up when I use that IP.  The transmit button does nothing.  I don't see any traffic from the hotspot repeater communicating with the dummy repeater.  This is what I mean when I say "does not work"

So, the workaround to use 192.168.1.10 seems to be a waste of time.

So, now what?  Any ideas? Day 14 and at least 40 hours of work later and we're 75% of the way there so I guess that is "some" progress.

Steve B. Can you post your rpt.conf file (or send it to me?) 
What other changes need to me made besides all of this?  (ANY changes to ANY files or ANY other dependencies required)
... and yes I did run the required_libs.sh from github and I have all of those requirements fulfilled.

I am running Debin 8 x64 if that adds to the mystery or not.

I doubt it matters which is which. I would keep the working hotspot and configure the second repeater for DummyRepeater.

I had set Dummy to use port 20012 on Repeater 2.  It's easy to make the swap.  I'll try it.
