Working with MMDVM_Bridge and XLX

JJ Cummings
 

The problem that I am seeing does not exist between MMDVM_Bridge and XLX but between ircddbgateway and xlx.  The design is simple:

Analog_Bridge <-> MMDVM_Bridge <-> ircddbgateway <-> XLX (DStar)

The connection between ircddbgateway and XLX consistently times out (this occurs from pistar as well).  This appears to be an issue where ircddbgateway is not handling the keepalive packets correctly from the XLX server, as evidenced by the ircddb logs below.  I have tried DCS and DExtra and both exhibit the exact same behavior.  Any input is greatly appreciated!

So I managed to solve my first issue where ircddbgateway etc would not connect to XLX.  Turns out that XLX is very picky about padding and I needed to add some additional padding in the ircddbgateway configuration.  The issue that I have remaining is that I get one way audio (Analog to XLX) but not XLX to Analog.  I have traced the issue down to ircddbgateway - where I see the voice packets come in from XLX but then ircddbgateway never passes them to MMDVM_Bridge, any thoughts from anyone?

Oh, and when I start ircddbgateway up and it links to the XLX - I do get audio from ircddbgateway itself back to analog announcing the connection.. I know it has to be some trivial setting in ircddbgateway but I'm at a loss for what that setting is.
