Looking for a suggestion bridging BM TG to XLXD (DMR)


Komkit Listisard
 

Is there a way to bridge a BM TG to XLXD?   Say, BM TG123456 <==> XLXD 4005 (module E).  There will be no D-star and YSF.

Thank you kindly, Kit

I believe BM will be happy to do that for you.

Request a XLX interlink from Brandmeister via their ticket system.

Steve,

BM would not do that with 6 digits TG to an XLX, we do not have a master server or BM team in our country.   DMR repeater is out of the question due to local laws and regulations. So we do not have many options.   

At any rate,  did have HBlink bridged TGIF TG to XLXD no issue at all but try to do the same with BM, my HBmon is showing red/orange in the peer systems displays while TGIF network is green.

This should be it or I am missing something:

MASTER_IP:  BM IP address
MASTER_PORT: 62031
PASSPHRASE: 1234567 (yes, I entered my real passcode in the config)
CALLSIGN: HS0XXX
RADIO_ID: XXXXXXX01



Otherwise I will have to go the longer way by creating a YSF reflector and bridge BM TG using MMDVM_Bridge then again another MMDVM_Bridge from YSF reflector to XLXD 4005.

Much longer way but it is what it is.  Not sure if that would even work.   

Thank you kindly, Kit

So,
why does it have to be a 6 digit TG?
What HBMonitor shows does not mean much, what does HB log say?
What about a OBP connection?
If you have to do it with MMDVM_Bridge, do it with 2 instances of MMDVM_Bridge cross connected.

it was an existing TG they have for a while.

hblink.log seems okay, nothing jump out at me.  Even though it showing I am connected and accepted but when I go to BM dashboard I do not the ID in question show up. 

There is also no traffic to and from BM to XLXD.

I have never looked in the OBP, I may have to look into it.

Otherwise MMDVM_Bridge x2 seem to be the answer.

Thank you kindly, Kit
