Re: YSF to DMR

Aaron Groover
 

Hey Steve, sorry for the late reply. Figured it out somehow, somehow "TXPort" in the YSF settings was "T/Port"

So I knew right there and then that was the problem. No idea how the slash got in that place, but gotta love linux!

I took a copy of my backup files that i keep in case my node crashes compared them via microsoft word, did a ctrl find, place the entire file in the search box and it highlighted it right to the slash and then thats when i knew that was the problem. 

All is good now. Thanks again sir.

No,
It would be the other way around. Start with the AllStar image, then add DVSwitch Server.

Thank you Steve ...

That's exactly what I was looking for ... that should keep me busy for a while ...

Yep, that was the fix!

Rewriting the .ini files is so 2019. ;)
Look at dvswitch.sh it will do everything you could want to do on the fly (Now, that's a bold statement) If it does not do it and you can make a case why it should it might be added.

run /opt/MMDVM_Bridge/dvswitch.sh to see the options available.

Hi Folks,

Is there a way of dynamically configuring the bridges ?  Something along the lines of the management interface that Asterisk exposes ?

The immediate things would be - changing the target Talk Group and also receiving the telemetry to display to the user.

At the moment the best I can think of is rewriting the ".ini" files and then calling  :systemctl restart .._Bridge"

Re: Configuring DVSwitch Mobile to access own AllStarLink node

There are 2 different things in play here. You have to consider the capabilities of DVSwitch Mobile (the Android client) and DVSwitch Server.
DVSwitch Mobile can be a IAX client. As a IAX client it can directly communicate with a AllStar node. That node can be AllStarLink or HAMVOIP.
DVSwitch Mobile can also communicate as a USRP client. This is primarily intended to communicate with DVSwitch Server which supports the 5 digital modes.

DVSwitch Server is available as a Raspbian image or can be installed on a existing Debian based system. DVSwitch Server can be installed on a existing AllStarLink node since that node is Debian based.
HAMVOIP is based on Arch, so the DVSwitch Server install packages can not easily be installed on HAMVOIP. ( we are working on a solution to this)

I hope I did not muddy the waters further.

Re: ASL to DMR - not receiving inbound traffic

Gerry Filby
 

Thanks again Brad - I found my mistake in the AMBE_AUDIO section - once I put my DMR ID as the "gatewayDmrId" all started working correctly.

Thanks for your note on making the TG static - I ended removing that and I'm finding that the "auto-static" seems to work really well, the connection to the TG has stayed in place for several hours.

Cheers!

you may want to try changing the 1998 to your node number as well

Cool. Thanks for your help!


Re: Configuring DVSwitch Mobile to access own AllStarLink node

Both the ASL and HAMVOIP examples do not use the IAXRPT stanza, The ASL uses iaxclient and the HAMVOIP example uses joe-bobs-account That is the sample you should use. Yes, in both cases for DVSM, the type is friend. IAXRPT is used for the Windows client.
ASL uses the iax-client stanza in extensions.conf and HAMVOIP uses android-iaxrpt

Since you are using HAMVOIP, I would suggest you use the sample laid out in the document.

This is the section where the 1998 needed to be changed to my node number:

[phone-iaxrpt]    ;;; Stanza is the context from iax.conf
exten => 42437,1,Answer
exten => 42437,n,Playback,rpt/node
exten => 42437,n,Playback,digits/1
exten => 42437,n,Playback,digits/9
exten => 42437,n,Playback,digits/9
exten => 42437,n,Playback,digits/8
exten => 42437,n,Set(CALLERID(num)=0)
exten => 42437,n,Rpt,1998|P|${CALLERID(name)} ;;; The "CallerID" from IAXRpt

I can show you the logs. Where will I find the log files in the dir structure?

I did some more troubleshooting and it seems to be related to the type setting.  When I change type=user to "friend" in the iax.conf [iaxrpt] stanza it will allow the app to connect using the iaxrpt user without throwing an error suggesting that there may be some issue with using the app to connect as a "user." Not sure the implications of that.

Example:

[iaxrpt]
user=iaxrpt
type=user friend
context=radio-iaxrpt
auth=md5
secret=  ; PASSWORD
host=dynamic
disallow=all
allow=ulaw
allow=gsm
transfer=no

Without seeing the logs, iax.conf and extensions.conf there is not much I can do to help. I don't know what line 60 says.

I think I figured it out. Two things:

1. DV Switch mobile app seems to only connect when using the [myphone-iaxrpt] stanza as the username. It will not connect to [iaxrpt]. It throws an invalid password or stanza. I verified the password so it is some other option.

2. I changed Line 60 of extensions.conf from 1998 to my node number. After doing that, I was able to connect without the "node 199..." disconnect error state.

Sorry,
I though you said AllStarLink. This is from HAMVOIP. <https://hamvoip.org/howto/iaxrpt-config.pdf>

Thanks, I followed those instructions and now I am able to at least get the app to recognize the node. However, when I click connect in the app, I hear "node 199..." from the phone speaker and then it gets cut off and there is a tone.  It never actually completes the connection.  FYI, the node is a stock HamVOIP that I just re-flashed so everything is default except for the stanza I added to iax.conf per the wiki.
