Re: Linking Peanut Server to Fusion Room

Gwen Patton

You know what?

NEVER MIND. Forget I even said anything on this thread. I'm not David's support, I just use his programs. It's possible he's done something arcane with Peanut I don't know about because I don't use it. So maybe David will chime in and answer it, because I can't, and don't want to suck up bandwidth anymore with trying to figure out what people are talking about. I need a dandelion break.

Mike, are you talking about the ANDROID version of BlueDV? It is called "BlueDV AMBE". That's it's name. 

The WINDOWS version was the only one working completely with Fusion last I looked. David even said the Android version may never transmit on Fusion, last I heard.

Peanut is a very restricted version that only ever worked with David's servers that I know of. I'll admit I haven't looked at Peanut recently, but I generally don't need it.

The ThumbDV stuck is an AMBE device, but the NAME of the Windows version that works on Fusion is "BlueDV Windows". "BlueDV AMBE" is the NAME of the Android version that never has had full Fusion support.

Hence my confusion here. I didn't know Peanut worked with any servers but David's, and want aware he made it work with Fusion when the FULL Android version still does not. Peanut is an Android product, so I hope you see why I asked what I did.

Is there a reason you're using Peanut, and not the actual BlueDV or BlueDV AMBE clients? I have a simple AMBEServer set up on a Pi 3+, and I can connect to any reflector. With BlueDV Windows, I can even connect to Fusion rooms. You just can't connect to Fusion to transmit with the Android client. But the Windows client works fine on DMR, D-STar, and Fusion. The Android BlueDV works fine for DMR and D-Star.

So why are you messing with Peanut? That's a really limited program. David hasn't made BlueDV AMBE do Fusion, has he made Peanut do Fusion somehow?  Is that why you're using Peanut?

Folks, I am trying to achieve what PA7LIM describes below: My goal that is to allow an amateur with Peanuts Client on his Android / Windows to have a QSO with an amateur who uses his Yeasu FT3D on my Fusion repeater. So I followed PA7LIM procedure described below:


I set up an AMBEserver on a Raspberry PI 4 using a ThumbDV. That works well. It did not work with DVStick30 unfortunately. In reference to the red dots above, my questions are the following:
Q1: Do I really have to build a YSF repeater or I can just provide PA7LIM with my Room number  so he can connects is Peanut server to my Fusion Room number?  Q2: Do I need to set up a YSF Server and than link it to my Fusion Room number and  forward that to PA7LIM with  the Hostname and port of the YSF server? Thank you folks if you can bright some light! 73!
