Re: XLX003 Reflector; Anna

At startup time, the reflector protocol drivers load up a properties list (plist) file of what reflectors they able to handle connections to. That list is made up of an internal list that’s shipped with Buster, and a live-downloaded list from They’re merged, with the entries taking precedence.

Right now, Buster only uses the “DExtra Reflectors” list from That won’t include any of the XLX reflectors. There’s no real reason that I know of that would prevent Buster connecting, but it just doesn’t know about them. It was written before they existed.

You can hack Buster by adding an XLX reflector to the DExtraReflectors.plist XML file inside of /Applications/ Anything else would require an update from me. The easiest thing would be for John to make the XLX reflectors available as a plist file as well, and then I can add a couple of lines to import it.

GM, folks.

Running Buster on an iMac late 2015. Works fine.

Friends wanted me to connect to an experimental reflector XLX003-R, but Buster could not link to it. The others were all on Windows machines. Any idea what might be the issue for this one? See this link. The top 4 were hams with whom I was trying to connect.
