Macro Not Found Issue

Good Morning,
I just got my 1st AllStar repeater up and running last night and I have the following issue and I don’t understand what is wrong, When I enter (Through DTMF) *3 and then the node # I get the response “macro not found”
Any help/direction is appreciated
Thanks

Jerry,
The *3 needs to be followed by an actual active node number.

See the https://www.allstarlink.org/nodelist/ any node shown in green
is an online/active Node

Thanks Larry,

The node I was attempting to connect to was an activate node.

I suspect something is not correct, when I was setting it up the 1st time but I am not sure what to look for.

Very good Jerry,

Well I see your node 50984 is online and registered. It appears to be
trying to Link with a 6 digit Node number.

Not all Allstar Nodes recognize the addition of the extra digit.
I believe…There is a setting that needs changed to allow 6 digit
connects. Perhaps Tim will jump in and correct me if wrong and supply
the proper info, as I am unfamiliar with it.

Can you can give a few more particulars of what exactly is happening
when you dial. Number you are trying to connect to would help . Error
you receive if it fails etc.

Also have you tried connecting to 5 digit node numbers?

Hi Larry,

Yes I am trying to connect to node number 505500.

When I send *3505500 it returns with “macro not found”.

I have not attempted to connect to a 5 digit note.

Thanks

There are 3 places in rpt.conf to understand regarding macros. The first 2 parts are likely already set correctly. You’ll just need to add lines to the 3rd part.

The 1st part is understanding where the various sections [stanza] are. This sets where the DTMF functions and macros stanza are.

; Example node number 1000
[1000]
functions=functions1000
macro=macro1000
...

The 2nd part is the functions stanza. This sets the macro function to *5:

; Fuctions for node 1000
[functions1000]
5 = macro
...

The 3rd part is the macro stanza. This sets the actual macro commands

; Macro Commands for node 1000
[macro1000]
1 = *11500  ;Disconnect 1500
2 = *31500  ;Connect 1500

Now *51 will disconnect node 1500 and *52 will connect to node 1500

Thanks,

All take a look and see what my settings are.

To ADMIN,

I did a new Debian ASL install on a PC using the link below

https://github.com/AllStarLink/Asterisk/releases/download/ASL-1.01/ASL_1.01-20180417-amd64-i386-debian-stretch-netinst.iso

With my URIx Sound device plugged in. Booted the PC and logged in as
user repeater
Set chan_simpleusb.so driver to load in the modules.conf
Made sure the rxchannel = SimpleUSB/usb_(node-number) was set correctly
in rpt.conf.
Saved the changes and restarted the PC.

As user repeater entered sudo asl-menu
The asl-menu started.

Selected item #4 ===> Run simpleusb-tune-menu for SimpleUSB configuration.

Does nothing other than to keep telling you…
“SimpleUSB must be enabled in modules.conf and selected in rpt.conf”

Since this was already done. It appears there is something wrong with
the asl-menu item 4.

Returning to the command line and entering — sudo simpleusb-tune-menu
The “simpleusb-tune-menu” runs without issue.

Someone want to take a look at this. I’m sure it would save some new
user a lot of frustration if they try using it while they attempt to get
their new ASL server up and running.
