P25Reflector-Dashboard - Repeated Entries

mike@...
 

My "Connected Gateways" section shows duplicate entries for certain gateways. Anyone know why this may be happening? 
Timestamps are about 2 minutes apart for each dupe - the section looks like this: 

2020-03-25 17:54:07  Callsign#1
2020-03-25 17:54:07  Callsign#2
2020-03-25 17:54:07  Callsign#3
2020-03-25 17:54:07  Callsign#4
2020-03-25 17:52:07  Callsign#4

Appreciate the help!

Hi Florian

Would you let me know to install Analog_bridge.armv6l and mmdvm_bridge. armv6l on Raspi zero w ?

The “Stay at Home” order by Governor Inslee of Washington State, has impacted some of our vendors, delaying the DRAWS™ run. We will keep you apprised.

So it’s time for a sale on the ThumbDV™ !

Might as well contact Hams on the reflectors using DSTAR, DMR or Fusion from your PC at home.

Normally $119.95, on Sale NOW for $99.95 at least until the order is lifted, or we run out of inventory.

It appears to have corrected itself. Tried this morning and audio passing thru all modes! THANKS FOR ALL THE HELP!!

Port address, not IP.
As same with each P25 NXDN DMR etc service instance that is on the same server.
A separate PORT ADDRESS will be needed for each instance of a service running on the same server.
You're typing "port address" when you mean port number. I think that's why you are confusing JJ et al. Assuming they're all running on the same host, they will all use the localhost IP ADDRESS (127.0.0.1), but different PORT NUMBERS.

If only it were so. In the diagram below (if I understand it) you have NXDN, DMR and YSFn all enabled. That's fine but NXDN is going to need to point it's TX and RX UDP ports at another mode (or Analog_Bridge)  But only one partner. MMDVM_Bridge does not mix all the modes and then output to AB. It's a one to one relationship. Look at DVSwitch.ini:

; Configure the DMR Partner
; Audio format is AMBE 72 bit
[DMR]
Address = 127.0.0.1             ; Address to send AMBE TLV frames to (export)
TXPort = 31100                  ; Port to send AMBE TLV frames to (export)
RXPort = 31103                  ; Port to listen on (import)

; Configure the D-Star Partner
; Audio format is AMBE 48 bit (DSAMBE)
[DSTAR]
Address = 127.0.0.1             ; Address to send AMBE TLV frames to (export)
TXPort = 32100                  ; Port to send AMBE TLV frames to (export)
RXPort = 32103                  ; Port to listen on (import)

; Configure the NXDN Partner
; Audio format is AMBE 72 bit
[NXDN]
Address = 127.0.0.1             ; Address to send AMBE TLV frames to (export)
TXPort = 33100                  ; Port to send AMBE TLV frames to (export)
RXPort = 33103                  ; Port to listen on (import)

; Configure the P25 Partner
; Audio format is IMBE 88 bit
[P25]
Address = 127.0.0.1             ; Address to send AMBE TLV frames to (export)
TXPort = 34100                  ; Port to send AMBE TLV frames to (export)
RXPort = 34103                  ; Port to listen on (import)

; Configure the Yaesu Fusion Partner
; Audio format is AMBE 72 bit
; Audio format is IMBE 88 bit
[YSF]
Address = 127.0.0.1             ; Address to send AMBE TLV frames to (export)
TXPort = 35100                  ; Port to send AMBE TLV frames to (export)
RXPort = 35103                  ; Port to listen on (import)

For a DMR to NXDN bridge it require to "cross connect the DMR and NXDN ports like this:

[DMR]
Address = 127.0.0.1             ; Address to send AMBE TLV frames to (export)
TXPort = 31100                  ; Port to send AMBE TLV frames to (export)
RXPort = 31103                  ; Port to listen on (import)

[NXDN]
Address = 127.0.0.1             ; Address to send AMBE TLV frames to (export)
TXPort = 31103                  ; Port to send AMBE TLV frames to (export)
RXPort = 31100                  ; Port to listen on (import)

To mix everything in analog, you will need an ASL node for each mode. That's 5 copies of AB and 5 ASL nodes on the server. But I'll say again, you do not want to convert each mode to analog due to the loss of quality as compared to like vocoders.

They can not be shared unless something has changed that I was not aware of.

I read "address" as an IP Address which does not need to be unique at all.  All that needs to happen is each mode has an ASL node which listens for and sends USRP on a given set of ports.  Those ports need to be unique per node, but note the IP Address.

Exactly what i needed to know, thanks Steve

Re: Connecting more that 2 Analog_Bridges #analog_bridge

Steve N4IRS
 

The only way to bridge USRP across more then 2 connections is with ASL.
The other issue to consider is that you don't ALWAYS want to go analog for conversion. Consider this:
DMR, NXDN, YSFn.  No conversion required. All 3 are AMBE so it's a simple cross connected MMDVM single instance for 2 modes.
YSFw and P25. No conversion required. All 3 ar IMBE so it's a simple cross connected MMDVM single instance for 2 modes.
D-Star is stand alone.

So, for example if you used 2 instances of AB to bridge DMR to NXDN you would loose quality by going to analog when it's not needed.

Re: Working with MMDVM_Bridge and XLX

Oh, and when I start ircddbgateway up and it links to the XLX - I do get audio from ircddbgateway itself back to analog announcing the connection.. I know it has to be some trivial setting in ircddbgateway but I'm at a loss for what that setting is.
