remotetrx - The SvxLink remote transceiver application
remotetrx [--help] [--daemon] [--logfile=log file] [--config=configuration file] [--pidfile=pid file] [--runasuser=user name]
is the SvxLink remote transceiver application. It is used to connect to a
receiver and/or transmitter and then the main SvxLink server can connect to the
remote transceiver server via TCP/IP to get audio to/from it.
It is also possible to link via RF instead of via TCP/IP. An example use of the
latter would be if the repeater is placed in a remote location where there is
no network. Then networked remote receivers can be linked up to the repeater
via RF from a link site where network is available.
The setup is pretty straight forward. The setup of a receiver or transmitter is
done in the same way as in the SvxLink server so use the
manual page as a reference for that. The remotetrx specific configuration is
described in the
On the SvxLink server side you need to configure a networked
receiver/transmitter. That is described in the
manual page in the Networked Receiver/Transmitter Section. If using multiple
receivers you also want to configure a voter and make proper calibration of the
signal level detector on each receiver.
Print a help message and exit.
Start the SvxLink remote receiver server as a daemon.
Start RemoteTrx as the specified user. The switch to the new user
will happen after the log and pid files has been opened.
