Re: Setting the IP address on the Pi

Bob Brown
 

The same for as well this is the first time I have had an eth0 not be an eth0

but it is what worked for me YMMV 

now this is an older pi2 or 3 I believe it was in the junque box

I was just trying this out to see how it worked. and testing the ease of set up instructions.

I say so far it was easy, except for the static IP part.

I will play with it some more tonight I may even try a different pi to see if it is common with a fresh image

recommendation for purchase of NWDigital Thumb DV

I would like to get started and setup a DVSwitch Server. I would like recommendations for the purchase of Digital Thumb DV. 
Thanks for your help.


Re: Setting the IP address on the Pi

Mike,
I don't remember a issue with loading the network from boot, but I'm old and forget things. ;)

Most of the support programs (gateways etc) do get unhappy if they can't connect to the internet on startup. I built a service that holds off starting any of those services until the cost can connect to the internet.

But perhaps my mention of it will jar someones memory of it.

Well, I have had my Coffee and I made a few changes as suggested.

1. Here is what I did on the cmdline.txt file in the /boot/ directory

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
console=serial0,115200 console=tty1 root=PARTUUID=ba1c0260-02 rootfstype=ext4
elevator=deadline fsck.repair=yes rootwait ipv6.disable=1
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

It worked to disable the IPv6, I tried this first to see what happens, it disabled the IPv6 but the 169.xxx.xxx.xxx dhcp address stayed.

So I did the next step as the 2nd suggestion.

2. The is funny on this pi, the naming scheme "eth0" is not what it is called on this pi it is some long string of characters: "enxb827eb692453"

I did an "ifconfig" first to get the name of the eth0 interface.

I then copied that string "enxb827eb692453"
Replacing the "eth0" with the string "enxb827eb692453"

This I put at the end of the "/etc/dhcpcd.conf" file

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
interface enxb827eb692453
static ip_address=10.20.20.10/24
static routers=10.20.20.254
static domain_name_servers=4.4.4.4 8.8.8.8
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I did this editing with "sudo nano" then saved of course in both files...
Using nano by itself would not allow a save, I had to use sudo.

Then Rebooted and checked for IP change, It worked! :)

The end result was a static IPv4 address and no IPv6.

Hi Jeff,

I would do that but the router is from google fiber and I have limited control of it.

I guess I will go to the CMD line method and set it that way.

Thanks for the reply.

Re: Setting the IP address on the Pi

Jeff Lehman, N8ACL
 

Set it via reserved IP in DHCP in your router by Mac address. That way when the pi boots, DHCP will always assign it that IP address and you don’t have to mess with changing files and the command line. Also if you ever need to move networks ( you get a new router and change your IP scope for example), your PI is not locked on that old network and you can’t get into it.

Is that seriously as good as it gets??

Code is not documentation - and in my experience it is usually pretty unreadable anyway, being written in a crap language like C I expect.
I do not understand how people expect systems to be interoperable if the protocols used are not well documented - or is that why I so often hear about "weird problems" and things not quite working right?
Someone tried back in 2015, presumably when making a start. Shame it wasn't maintained unless I am just not finding it.

I am getting too old for this. When I started programming the ASCII text of the documentation would be bigger than the code itself!!

Re: #mmdvm_bridge #mmdvm_bridge

Looking at your logs, I see that the station transmitting with dmr2ysf is placing the users DMR ID in the callsign field.  I would bet that their dmr id database is not up to date so it is just sending the numeric ID.  YSF requires a callsign to be sent, not a numeric ID.


Re: DVSwitch Server release date

Steve N4IRS
 

Gary,
DVSwitch Server is all the same programs as you had on your bridge. The idea behind server was to include all the components and scripts. With the menu in Server you configure for use with DVSM, but it's not necessary.
The difference in using DVSwitch Server with DVSM and using DVSwitch Server with ASL is one setting in AB.ini

For DVSM:
[USRP]
address = 127.0.0.1                     ; IP address of USRP partner (Allstar/Asterisk or another Analog_Bridge)
txPort = 54321                          ; Transmit USRP frames on this port
rxPort = 54321                          ; Listen for USRP frames on this port


For ASL:
[USRP]
address = 127.0.0.1                     ; IP address of USRP partner (Allstar/Asterisk or another Analog_Bridge)
txPort = 32001                          ; Transmit USRP frames on this port
rxPort = 34001                          ; Listen for USRP frames on this port

 
The above ports point to the USRP channel driver in ASL rpt.conf:
rxchannel = USRP/127.0.0.1:34001:32001  ; Use the USRP channel driver. Must be enabled in modules.conf
                                        ; 127.0.0.1 = IP of the target application
                                        ; 34001 = UDP port the target application is listening on
                                        ; 32001 = UDP port ASL is listening on


I'll bet if you look at your AB.ini it's set for DVSM.

As to the ability to change TGs and modes from ASL. You can. It takes a little work in ASL but here are the basics:
/opt/MMDVM_Bridge/dvswitch.sh will allow you to change modes, talk groups and a whole lot more. It's VERY versatile. to get a look at what it can do:
/opt/MMDVM_Bridge/dvswitch.sh will output all or most of the available parameters.

/opt/MMDVM_Bridge/dvswitch.sh mode DMR will change modes to DMR
/opt/MMDVM_Bridge/dvswitch.sh tune 3100 will change TG to 3100

All you need to do is setup ASL. Well, doing that is not quite simple depending on how well you know ASL.
This part should really be continued in the <https://dvswitch.groups.io/g/allstarlink> subgroup.

Hope this helps,

Installed DVSwitch_Server on new RPi4 and it works great. Fun to watch activity on RX Monitor and on Smartfone.
Have ASL 1.01 running on RPi3B+ for several years.Added DVSwitch bridge on it and it has been working FB.
However, w/o any way to change the TB over the air with DTMF, it is limited usefullness.
Thus, I took the leap and installed DVSwitch_Server on top of the existing stuff on the RPi3. Now DVSwitch does not work.
I shoud have asked B4 attempting the last step, but I got over enthusiastic.
Do you recommend putting ASL & DVSwitch Bridge & DVSwitch_Server on one RPi3B+? If so, what best install steps?
Thanks

Re: Where can I find protocol documentation?

Steve N4IRS
 

George,
As far as I know, you have found all of the "documentation" on the protocol called HBP. MMDVM uses a slightly modified version of HBP to communicate with DMRGateway and networks like BM, XLX and DMR Plus. This is DMR only. To understand that protocol since it's open source, you can look at the source code for MMDVMHost, DMRGateway, HBlink and XLX.  You can also take a look at <https://github.com/marrold/MMDVM-Dissector>

For NXDN, D-Star, YSF and P25 see the source to MMDVMHost.

Hope this helps.

For starters, I would like to find a full, complete, and correct documentation for whatever the protocol is called (IPSC, HBLINK, ??) that things like MMDVM use to talk to the gateways.

I found an old (2015) document somewhere which is clearly an early alpha version and with errors too, but the actual data streams I am looking at are for something that has evolved a bit since then. So where is this specified?

And is that protocol used for any other links in the growing DV networks?
