Some Reflectors work some do not

Post by DG9JBO »

I'm relatively new to the topic of D-Star.

I have a Pi-Star Ver.4.2.1 which worked for a long time. Why not anymore? No idea. I can
connect to XLX, and REF reflectors, but I get an error message with some. I get the log
view via SSH with cd /var/log/pi-star and nano ircDDBGateway*.log.

It says there:
M: Registered with dns.xreflector.net using callsign DG9JBO
M: Loaded 35 DCS reflectors from dns.xreflector.net
M: Starting the D-RATS Server thread for DG9JBO
M: Starting the D-Plus Authenticator thread
M: Starting the Callsign Server thread
E: Cannot connect the TCP client socket, err=111
M: CCS: Connection has failed (poll inactivity) for DG9JBO B, reconnecting
M: CCS: Connection refused for DG9JBO B
M: DCS link to DCS001 W has failed to connect

I completely deleted the SD card several times and flashed it again with Pistar.
The OM in this topic (viewtopic.php?t=1311)
seems to have a similar problem, because it only works partially there.

thank you in advance!

Are CCS registrations even a thing these days, most DCS reflectors have now migrated to XLX and is the team behind DCS/CCS still around? Last I heard they disbanded, but if they are you could ask this directly to them. As the error reports your registration is being rejected.

Hello Andrew,
many thanks for the answer.
How can I contact CCS? Is there an email or web address?

Torsten, DG1HT is the only callsign i see still listed on the xreflector.net website.
If you can find an email add. for him, that might be a starting point.

The main operator of the network and owner of the domain is Torsten DG1HT. He will leave Germany and must therefore give up these systems.

I contacted Peter, DG9FFM , he says:

So DCS001 works perfectly.
So the problem must be in your own hotspot.
As a reflector operator, I have no influence on the configuration and data of the hotspot used.
