Important notice

Issues with connectivity

Authentication

Several times we got issue with empty password (same as on Hytera). Please check page Status of your BrandMeister Server. Field “Interpretation” will contain text “Authentication is On” it your repeater has non-empty password field. To solve this problem you need to fill some text into password field and upload codeplug into repeater then clear password and upload codeplug again.¬†Note:¬†BrandMeister can be configured to use authentication.

NAT traversal / firewalls / port forwarding

Mostly you have issues with your router or firewall if Field “Interpretation” contains text “XNL is not connected”. In this case messages sent by server was not delivered to the repeater. BrandMeister Server is friendly for NAT traversal and it is not required any special settings.

Issues on operations

Continuous TX-ing

This situation happens when synchronous beaconing is on at your BrandMaster Server and repeater code-plug has wrong beacon duration. To solve this issue please set beacon values as shown at the picture:

Repeater does not transmit calls from the server

This situation happens when repeater code-plug has wrong value of RSSI Threshold due the specific of internal call arbitering. To solve this issue please set beacon values as shown at the picture:
