Re: mmdvm_bridge won’t start on boot after update #mmdvm_bridge

That did it!  Awesome, thank you!


AllStar and DummyRepeater

 

I'm looking to build a a gateway between AllStar and D-STAR, and I've
seen references to using DummyRepeater and IRCDDBGateway, instead of
Analog_Bridge.  This has the advantage for me of being able to repurpose
a blue DV Dongle to do the DSAMBE conversion, saving a bit of money and
postage time (postage is quite slow these days)

I am aware there is a modification for DummyRepeater that allows it to
use the USRP interface, making it a perfect fit for AllStar, and I have
the AllStar side configured.  However, from there, documentation seems
to be lacking, and I couldn't find the patch (found a dead Guthub link).


Anyone have any more info?

Chris,
It sounds like netcheck does not think your internet connection is coming up fast enough.
Make a backup of mmdvm_bridge.system and edit the file:
 
[Unit]

Description=MMDVM_Bridge Service
# Description=Place this file in /lib/systemd/system

# BindTo=dev-ttyACM0.device
#
# To make the network-online.target available
# systemctl enable systemd-networkd-wait-online.service

After=network-online.target syslog.target # netcheck.service
# Requires=netcheck.service

I bolded the 2 places to comment out netcheck.
reboot and verify mmdvm_bridge is starting.

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.

Bob,
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.

Hi,

What (and WHERE or WHO) determines what your newly installed P25 reflector's TG ID is?

I probably will choose not to publish the TG (at first, at least) but where do I give it its name? I saw a thread where Steve says some ppl are using the same #

So....I need to 'submit' my reflector info to one of them to get included on that version of the file, then?

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.

Re: P25Reflector install help...

I'm not talking about me, though; dozens of P25 Reflectors have just appeared in my Pi-Star P25 pulldown (in Configuration) over
the last year or so. Every time I look there are more of them. I haven't manually added any of them...

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
