Pi-Star Configuration for TGIF

<< < (2/6) > >>

ke5cdk:
Not sure if info is here, yet
Before pi-star added the TGIF to master server list
We were adding it manually

Iíll look and link instructions when I can

ke5cdk:
to manually add tgif the old way


SSH into rasberry pi

user pi-star
password raspberry


enter these commands
sudo su
rpi-rw
cd ..
cd ..
dir
(should see a 'root' directory)

cd root
dir
(should see 'DMR_Hosts.txt' file)

sudo nano DMR_Hosts.txt

(add this line at the bottom)
TGIF_Network2   9   tgif.network   passw0rd   62031
note- those are not spaces, but a single tab

(ctl) O to save
(ctl) X to exit

then do a update


then select the new server at the bottom of the server list

KM6THY:
my issue has been solved. thanks folks

K2AMP:
Really dumb question, but since I'm on day 5 of my DMR experience....here goes:

What purpose is it to follow the above steps? Currently, I have my hotspot connected to the BM3102. Why would I want to connect the the TGIF Network instead?

Thanks in advance...

ke5cdk:
above is the way we use to manually add a server not on pi-star server list.

"Why would I want to connect the the TGIF Network instead?"
better question... why would you settle for or limit yourself to one server?

I have:
BM
TGIF
DMR+
DMR marc (cbridge)
several private servers

It just happens that TGIF does have its own flavor and features not on all others:
Server built from the ground up by Ty, KG5RKI, Michael K5MRE, Jason KD5TJG, Andy G7LRR
No ADMIN games! ( Robert, K4WZV, Admin ) ( Mitch, EA7KDO, Admin )
777 scan all TG
no need to 4000 disconnect, just move on to a TG
A growing list of Talk groups designed by users, for users
Bridging aloud on your TG (except BM, per their request)

also:
A selfcare page
Last heard and active talkers pages
audio streaming a few and growing TGs that actually works!
Wiki for the Talk Groups
A Forum
A Face Book Group
Hot Spot & Nextion screen development & support, no matter where you got them (on all above sources TG 31665 or 1000)
The TGIF net is held on talkgroup 3 1 6 6 5 every Friday at 8:30 pm eastern standard time

All this and more in a few months!
more  to come
