Hotspot security clarification

Skyler Fennell
 

Hotspot security is required on all hotspots on US servers in the next few weeks. 

Hotspot security will NOT work with repeater ID's? Or will it work but it is not required?

Also i am advised that if you want to use TG91 it needs to be direct with BM and not via another server/system.

For reasons I cannot fathom, this error keeps cropping up.

Running the update fixes the problem, but then it comes back again.

Yes it is. I had forgotten to make the service start on reboot, so it was down. It is back up and will now survive a reboot.
Please understand, hblink.dvswitch.org is pretty much just a place to test your connections. There is no traffic.

Re: Adding P25 to existing YSF and DMR bridge

Gary, KE8O
 

I really tried to solve this without coming back asking for more help, but I am stumped.  I configured according to the P25 to DMR flow diagram with the following exceptions. In my second MB instance I ran into port conflicts using TX 33100 & RX 33103 on DMR so I  added 1 to second digit using 3311x. I also had to change DMR local port from 62032 to 62033 to clear up error when trying to login to DMR master.  For P25Gateway I add my private P25 reflector privateP25Host.txt and set it as started up TG.  When I TX on P25 it is not bridging to DMR. However, I see the activity in my DMR and P25 AB log. What I find interesting is if someone is on DMR I see start and end of transmission on my P25 reflector log but nothing is heard on P25 side. I pulled the logs showing my port setup from both AB instances and my DMR to P25 MB. I also included my P25gateway log showing the start-up TG and my P25Reflector log showing the incoming TX from DMR side.

Maybe someone else looking at my setup will find something I've overlooked.

Good point Steve, I had tunnel vision and didn't consider DVSM as the method.


Re: D-Star Reflectors

You are correct about the files used by ircDDBGateway. They are not the same files used by DVSM (though they are the source files) To manage the reflector list displayed on DVSM, see <https://dvswitch.groups.io/g/Mobile/files/DVSwitch%20Installation%20and%20User%20Guide%20v1.61.pdf> starting on page 8.

Whenever possible use the ip address of the reflector being added.

Pay special attention to the format. These are treated as data files and they use delimiters to separate the data on a line. Typically they well be tab delimited but I've seen them in comma and semi-colon also.

Example:
XRF953<TAB>207.246.104.15

Regardless, follow the format of the existing file and you'll usually have success.

The files are often in different locations so you may have to hunt for them. In ircDDBGateway they are in /usr/share/ircddbgateway/ if you performed a make install. Pi-Star has it's own instructions, openSpot has a different method, etc.

Re: time out on an allstar node with dvswitch

Can you better describe the event, timing ? how long till disconnect, is it the same every time ?

Can you watch the verbose output in asterisk when the event happens ? what does it say ?

rpt.conf is in /etc/asterisk

Sounds like you should let someone with a little more experience look your configs over for the issue.

Is this on a PI or PC, is it standard issue asl or hamvoip ? Is the node connected to your network on wifi ?

   Running two pi's analog to dmr bridge both passwords are the same in both as set in MMDVM. INI.

  I Followed the procedure in that website from Brandmeister to set a security password to the letter.

   I highlighted both dmr ids to set the security  password. 

  Ideas?

I just checked the master and no issue there.  When you set the password on the portal it pushes it to ALL masters.  I am showing the same encrypted password on all USA masters and then I checked the UK and AU servers as wel just to make sure they were all in sync.

He is on 3102 though.
