Then replace the binary and check log for errors.

The question is, how it was installed. Please show the output of apt-get update.

Does that latest version of MMDVM_Bridge support DNS so that I can avoid having to edit INI files?

Yeah I was about to say I'm sure I built my P25Reflector from source.

The statement of, "You now have the COMPLETE DVSwitch Server installed.," is correct. The P25 reflector is not part of DVSwitch Server.
apt install p25reflector

My goal is to get up to the latest code base for all involved models.  It appears that this install was done a few years ago using the old MMDVM-Install process.

Should I try and backup/update on this machine or start with a new VM and fresh install then migrate my configs?

I did try the latter and following the DVSwitch-System-Builder process outlined here: https://github.com/DVSwitch/DVSwitch-System-Builder

But despite the statement of, "You now have the COMPLETE DVSwitch Server installed.," I noticed that I did not have the P25Reflector installed.  So does that mean that I still need to piece things together to get an updated version of what I currently have?  If so, what's the best repository to pull from?

Thoughts and/or advice appreciated.

try again you can do DMR and hotspots with an XLX server

Re: PLS HELP - private dmr server

Instead of trying to use HB link or DVSwitch, look at configuring an XLX server. It supports DMR, D-Star and YSF out of the box and is much easier to setup, especially if you are not going to interconnect it to another network…

The only thing to keep in mind is you will need hardware for transcoding D-star… otherwise, it will handle DMR and YSF without hardware…. This is how I setup a “private” DMR for my local club.

Re: MMDVM_Bridge Updates #mmdvm_bridge

Hi

 

Is possible, using connector with BM and this one with YSF reflector. We have 3 Wires-x connections and an IMRS repeater


Re: MMDVM_Bridge Updates #mmdvm_bridge

Patrick Perdue
 

FWIW:
WIRES x bridging would be done over RF using a radio and a hotspot. DVSwitch therefore doesn't care about that part, so long as the hotspot connecting the WIRES x room can talk to the reflector.

There is no way to connect a WIRES x room directly to a reflector other than through RF, at least if you want to keep it purely in the digital domain. I'm doing this through analog, connecting a Yaesu HRI-200 to an Allstar node, but that's completely different.

[Edited Message Follows]
[Reason: Add missing component]

Hi Ben,

I am not handling that part.

Once a week, I use MMDVM_Bridge to connect one of my YSF reflectors (A) to another YSF reflector (B) so that my local club members can participate in a net.  YSF reflector (B) is bridged to a WIRES-X room by the net operators.  (I don't know how.)

The problem:  Last week I attempted to check-in to the net.  My call sign appeared on the dashboard of YSF reflector (B), but net control did not hear me.

The issue could be in my Pi-Star software, the YSF reflector software, the MMDVM_Bridge software or the YSF-to-WIRES-X bridge.  I'm just trying to narrow it down.  Next week I plan to connect directly to the remote reflector without the bridge to see if that helps.

Edit: Add missing component
