On going issue with the draw and RMS-Gateway


Mike Lussier - AE4ML
 

I have been running into issues with this gateway, The RF side is sound. good power out and hardly any thing noticeably reflected.
The draw is on a raspberry pi3B+. The radio is a TM-G707.  The setup is RMS Gateway. 
folks can connect and send a simple message to one or two users. Even a lengthy message to one or two users. They can't get a message via radio from a group of users i.e. Winlink Wednesday. The message is loaded with recipients and fails to complete after about a quarter to half of the way through the message. Another message type that will fail is if you have any attachments to a message. it doesn't matter inbound or outbound. The use of forms for the most part work but I have seen failures there too. 
If I run a bug report this is what I see. 
I have been digging into log files and trying to figure this out without success. The end users are a mix of windows users with winlink-express and linux users running Pat.
