Re: Ambe connection problem


The AMBEserver has nothing to do with connecting to various protocols, reflectors, etc.  That is all handled by the client software, eg BlueDV.  ThumbDV/AMBEserver only has one function: take in PCM encoded audio and return AMBE or take in AMBE and return PCM encoded audio (to the client).

Again, it is a simple system, it gets a PCM packet from a client and returns an AMBE packet to that client, receives an AMBE packet from a client and returns a PCM packet to that client.   A single AMBE-3000 chip handles a single stream, and having multiple clients would divide that stream up between the clients in an unpredictable way.  The AMBEserver doesn't have multiplexing capability.  If you are asking if you can use the same AMBEserver by different clients at different times, that works just fine -- simultaneous use is going to have problems.

Ambed, by the folks who are doing the XLX reflectors, handles multiplexing multiple streams to multiple AMBE devices on a timeshared basis, that is currently only supported by the XLXd service.

We are contemplating kick-starting a multi-ambe device for such applications as Ambed.

   Question... Can there be multiple client connections to the AmbeServer? If so how is it handled, first come first served? Will both clients be able to hear/control connections to different reflectors?

AMBEserver, whether Linux or Windows is a simple thing.  It listens on a know UDP port (usually 2460) at a given IP address and forwards PCM and AMBE packets over that port.  If the server responds properly to requests for one device, but not another, the debugging needs to be on the client setup.

The phone, computer, or tablet must be configured to send to and receive from the given IP address and PORT of the server.  This can be a LAN address (in which case the client must be on the LAN) or a routable Internet address (in which case the client must be on the Internet).
