DVSwitch not connecting to Brandmeister


Roger Davies
 

Hi All,
For some reason, my dvs server is not connecting to BM.
It was working fine, but now it doesn't look like it's connecting to BM servers.
I did update the dvs server to the latest version. I don't know if it's a problem on my side or BM's. When I check the BM server list to see if I'm connected, the BM list page says it can't be reached.
Any ideas for me to start trouble shooting?
TIA,
Roger N6DVZ

"When I check the BM server list to see if I'm connected, the BM list page says it can't be reached."
Does this mean you can't go to selfcare with a browser?

I can get into self care. My hotspot security is set up and matches the dvs BM password as well

check /var/log/mmdvm/MMDVM_Bridge- todays date.

I know the dvs server is connected to the internet as I can SSH into it from outside my network.

Thanks Steve.
Will do and let you know what I find.

In MMDVM_Bridge.ini
1: check your password in [DMR Network]
2: check Duplex=0 in [General]
3: Check RXFrequency  and TX Frequency match in [Info]

These all look good:
1: check your password in [DMR Network]
2: check Duplex=0 in [General]
3: Check RXFrequency  and TX Frequency match in [Info]

[General]

Callsign=N6DVZ

Id=314900111

Timeout=180

Duplex=0

 

[Info]

RXFrequency=222340000

TXFrequency=222340000

Password matches to BM hotspot security password.
Would the weird frequencies be a problem? Has worked in the past.

Should I try to change the master address from Address=3103.master.brandmeister.network to Address= 74.91.118.251? Use the IP rather than URL?


Steve N4IRS
 

Did you say you turned on hot spot security?

Hotspot security is on with a password.


Steve N4IRS
 

Make sure AirSecurity is off.



If it's off, change your password in selfcare and match it in MMDVM_Bridge.ini

My air security is off off and Hotspot security is on.
I'll change the password and see what happens.

Edited

Changed password and no luck.
Would the SSL cert expiring cause me any problems?
I cant hear anything on DVSMobile either.
Thanks for you patience.


Steve N4IRS
 

No, it would not. send me your DMR ID and password to szingman@...
