D-Star Repeater Gateway Hosts file

Post by N8LN » Sat May 12, 2018 3:37 pm

Is there a way to edit (add) D-Star repeater gateways?
ie.

W8DF w8df.dstargateway.org


We are having issues resolving gateways lately. Reflectors are linking fine, just not repeater gateways.

Copy the entry into pistars host files in the /root folder where you'll find .txt files for the protocol ur wanting to use for the connection.

I still trying to figure out what stopped working - I was able to get into any local D-Star stacks until just recent.
Here are some destructions I followed to add my local repeater (W5FC) seems to do the trick - but some where
along the way something changed - anybody shed some light ?

Edit the host files in the /root folder:

pistar doesn't have the full dplus gateway list like they used to. About 1700 gateways are missing.
If the DPlus host is in the UPSTREAM server, it will propagate to your Pi-Star with in 24 hrs
