Re: DMR XLX Fusion Linking #thumbdv

Greg Hovland
 

Thank you. I have been scouring documents like the one you linked to. (and many others) However, it doesn't address a wireguard VPN situation as far as I can tell.
 
Is there a specific section in your link that I should focus upon?

If I run it remotely with wireguard up and running, what IP address should I use? 127.0.0.1, the IP of the machine at my home 192.168.1.205, or something else?

It's worse than that.

Did you check device manager before or after you plugged in the ThumbDV? I'll bet the answer is "before".

Plug it in, THEN check device manager. It doesn't activate a com port until you plug a device into a USB port.

Re: Portable ambe server

Nutters (vk1nut)
 

Thanks guys,
I seem to have all your suggested bases covered at this stage.
I was wondering is this Portable AMBE Server using the same distro of Debian  as NW does?
I don't know enough about identifying linux distros so I have a screen capture of the File structure in the hopes that I can get an idea of the distro and the contents of
Issue.txt:
Raspberry Pi reference 2017-11-29
Generated using pi-gen, https://github.com/RPi-Distro/pi-gen, b71bf3179310aadf9aaf2ffcdf094a88e488dce8, stage2

I would appreciate any input that recognises the distro.
The AMBEDConfig.exe sets up the IP address and Ports and the server does work, but it just appears to be intermittent so I am thinking I am mismanaging it somehow.

Thnx in advance
Glenn,vk1nut


Re: Portable ambe server

 

I cannot answer for that specific product, since it is not a NW Digital Radio product like the ThumbDV™

However a couple of data points:
  • The AMBEserver (generic) software is port and IP address agnostic, so you just configure it to run on whatever address and port you want, whether public or private.  (ThumbDV™ install of AMBEserver.)
  • The network protocol is UDP, not TCP, which means it is 'unreliable'.  The packets are not assured of delivery and unacknowledged, so they may get lost if the network circuit has any loss.  (SSH on the other hand uses TCP)
  • The daemon really only supports one simultaneous client, so if you have more than one client running you may get lost packets.
  • Make sure the port you choose is forwarded through the router.

I can connect externally from bluedv ambe for android and bluedv for windows to a static ip address as I don't need dyn dns etc.
Unfortunately the connection seems to be unrealiable at best to others.
The server can be accessed by me anywhere even ssh everytime.
Has anyone had experience with these as I would appreciate your help.
