Newbie needs some pointers
I'm in the process of setting up the following and I needs some gaps in my understanding filled.
Here's the high level view:
1. I have a Raspberry PI 3 with a DV3000.
2. I loaded the following software:
What I want to do is to be able to VNC into my Raspberry with another PC or MAC and then using the remote device
enter the Dstar network. The Gateway seems to be functioning at some level. I see:
IRCDB = connected
Repeater 1 = AG5GY B Not Linked
Everything seems to be ok until I try to configure Dummy Repeater. When I try to configure it I only get "NONE" as a choice
under the sound-card field. It then won't let me save the config items I did change because the sound-card is not set

It took a minute to figure out what you were trying to do. There is no 2-way soundcard on the Raspberry Pi, unless you add one, e.g. a USB headset or sound FOB.
If you are coming in from another computer, your better choice is to install DummyRepeater on your Windows box or Buster on your Mac, and access the AMBEserver over the network. (No VNC necessary -- if you are going to connect for a disply, you might want to use xrdp with Remote Desktop).
Buster doesn't require ircddb on the Mac, just point it at your Raspberry Pi with AMBEserver running (DV3000 network) https://nw-digital-radio.groups.io/g/ambe/wiki/AMBEserver-Addendum#Buster-for-MacOS
On Windows, put it at the AMBEserver (DV3000 Network) and point it the Raspberry Pi for ircddbgateway. https://nw-digital-radio.groups.io/g/ambe/wiki/AMBEserver-Addendum#DummyRepeater-for-Windows-or-Linux
Use this Wiki for guidance https://nw-digital-radio.groups.io/g/ambe/wiki
BTW, I will at DCC the next few days, so availability for support will be at a minimum.

I was thinking that I needed some type of sound card. I hadn’t thought of splitting dummy repeater from the gateway.
