Re: P25Reflector install help...

Steve N4IRS
 

Bob,
So, that's the issue. If you use Pi-Star, the host file comes from Andy Taylor MW0MWZ (The author of Pi-Star) Andy starts with the the host file from Jonathan G4KLX which is here <https://github.com/g4klx/P25Clients/blob/master/P25Gateway/P25Hosts.txt> There is nothing sacred about the file. Pi-Star give the user the ability to add custom entries. If I dont use Pi-Star I can edit the host file to my liking.

Pi-Star is a "repackaging" of the software from G4LKX. That is not to say Andy does not add value. He certainly does and I would venture to say that without Pi-Star (or something like it) DV hotspots would not have taken off like it did.

The P25Reflector software does not actually care what TG it reflects. When the reflector sees UDP traffic on the proper port, it reflects it to all connected users.
The program that determines what TG, is actually P25Gateway in it's host file:

# 10200 North America
10200    dvswitch.org        41000

This tells P25Gateway, when you see traffic on TG 10200 send the traffic to dvswitch.org (44.103.34.4) on UDP port 41000.
As to the name, again it's in the P25Gateway host file.

You edit the P25Hosts.txt file to reflect the details to the P25 reflector you are wanting to connect to.  Save it the do a quick reboot.

You should then be able to select it in Pi-Star

Hello,

We are having a problem that sprouts up after about four hours of operation. We start getting key-up on our analog repeaters with the word "muted", it is muffled and hard to understand, but we think this is what it's saying. The logs show network traffic coming from the DMR side, but we don't hear it if we monitor the talkgroup.

Is there something in the DVSwitch stack of software, or maybe in AllStar that would broadcast the word "muted? I'm hoping this will help us determine the issue.

Any help you can provide would be helpful.

a guide i put together for installing VDVLINK (VirtualBox)

Orrin Winton
 

Hopefully this is the right group to post this to.

Based on the EA5GVK/EA7JCL info, including their pages on how to install the .vdi
file into VirtualBox, plus very helpful material written by Dave WA3LXD, i made an
installation guide.


It doesn't claim to be the last word, but it's how i got going with VDVLINK and DV-Switch.
The Virtual DV-Link runs for days no problem. I have it running on both the Win10 and the
Ubuntu versions of VirtualBox. ... My only complaint is that so far i have not been able to
get D-Star running. But DMR-YSF-P25-NXDN run fine. I only use it for DMR 3100 anyway.

It was fun putting it together, as i read Spanish very well and it was enjoyable doing a little
translating. The screenshots from the EA5GVK/EA7JCL VirtualBox setup are for v8 of
VDVLINK, but they are applicable to 9.7.0 and later.

Comments are welcome, but please only if you try my "guide" and run into problems, and
please not on this list.    orrin.winton at gmail.com
