pyUC Client Installation issue

JerryL
 

Hi Steve,

I am running Mint 18.3 because that is the last version that can run Allstar's Web Transceiver.  I don't think I'd have a problem if I was running Mint 19 or 20.  They have an more recent version of python from what I understand.

Initially I installed the pyUC Client per pages B-4 & B-5 in the 45 page Installation and User Guide.  I got a 'bs4' module not found error.  Mint 18.3's contains python3.5.  I found where I could install bs4 with the command sudo apt-get install bs4.  After doing that the pyUC Client popped on the screen along with a terminal screen behind it scrolling the following error message:

(the date and time every second plus) - TX thread:read() got an unexpected keyword argument 'exception-on overflow;

I was able to hear very good audio from my Logitech USB headset while connected to 91 World Wide.   However I could not transmit.  Mint 18.3 nor the pyUC Client did not see/recognize the TX microphone in the headset.

Is there a fix for this?

Steve,

 

No issues here but wanted to pass this screen shot to you with what happens when ASL sends a text message on Key up. It sends that graphic and not my callsign…I just wanted to let you see it and if it is important.

after playing again and again, I decided to redo the rpt, module and iax conf files on the asterisk side. 

it all started to work. 

Now I will have to do some compare of those files to understand what went wrong at first. 

luckily notepad++ will do the compare job easy.

Kevin,
I don't know what hardware yo are running on, you might consider backing up you Quantar_Bridge.ini and MMDVM_Bridge.ini and trying either the RPi image or the DVSwitch Server install.

Ok, thanks Henrique and Steve I had overlooked the raspi-config. All is well now.

I change mine via raspi-config, under the menu time zone. Works nice

Do you have the time zone set on your server?

Up until about a year ago I had a few running in virmach, nfo, and vultr without any problems on both Debian 9 and 10.

 Jon,
I can tell you I have 2 VirMach VPS running DVSwitch Server without a problem. I am running what amounts to an analog bridge to service DVSwitch clients (DVSM, pyUC and hUC) so, it looks like this:

client <-> Analog_Bridge <-> MMDVM_Bridge <-> Gateway(s) or DMR Masters

I am also running a install of HBlink3 connected to BM via OpenBridge servicing hotspots.
I have done this on Debian 9 and I have also done a in place upgrade to Debian 10.
Does netstat -unap show anything?
netcat helps to troubleshoot some of these type of issues.

You may want to ask on the HBlink subgroup at <https://dvswitch.groups.io/g/HBlink/topics>

Hope this helps,

Has anyone by chance managed to get IPSC_Bridge<->HB_Bridge to run on a VirMach VPS (Elite+ LITE Package) with Debian 9 OS?

I have tried on and off for more than a year to try to get it to work.  Prior to moving the system to the VPS I bench tested it on a RPi running Debian 9 and it worked fine.

I set it up on the VPS, everything runs with no complaints BUT the dmrlink & hblink to not "talk" to one another.  Thinking as I always do... I wonder what I did wrong because the machine is never at fault it is always the human... right?

To prove myself wrong I took the exact same configuration and installed it on a different system, in this case a VM also running Debian 9 and it works fine.  I even replicated the bridge 5 times for different connections and they all have worked flawlessly for over a year.

The VirMach VPS is their low end service, the lowest end service Value+ LITE did not have enough memory (512MB) to load so I bumped up to the Elite+ LITE (1GB) and everything loads fine.

What appears to be the problem is that the internal in IPSC_Bridge fromGatewayPort = 31000 & toGatewayPort = 31003 don't communicate with HB_Bridge ports fromGatewayPort = 31003 & toGatewayPort = 31000

Since the exact same configuration works fine on other systems it would appear that the problem is somewhere in the architecture of the VPS.

Anyone have any ideas or been successful using VirMach for bridging?

Thanks Steve!  So far it has MB has not crashed so fingers crossed.

Kevin, this may fix your issue.
cd /opt/MMDVM_Bridge
ls
Do you see dvswitch.sh? If not cd /opt/Analog_Bridge do you see dvswitch.sh?
If yes

The droping of MB is something else, I THINK.

Chris,
Am I reading you P25Gateway config correctly, is that the newest version of P25Gateway that supports multiple TGs?

Good Morning all,

I am having a problem with P25 Gateway stating "M: 2021-02-18 12:32:38.340 Unlinking from 31660 due to inactivity"

On my other server I was running an older verison of P25Gateway with the options Startup=31660 and InactivityTimeout=0 and it ran fine.  Those settings in this version of P25Gateway do not seem to work either.



As soon as this happens my MMDVM_Bridge is dropping it's link from my HBLink master for some reason.  I do not see anything in the MMDVM_Bridge log files that signify a disconnection from the HBLink master, however I can see in HBLink that the bridge is no longer connected to the Master Stanza.  

First question I guess is would MMDVM_Bridge be dropping this link if P25Gateway drops the link to the reflector?  It seems as though that should not be the case.
