These programs are clients for the NXDN networking built into the MMDVM Host.
The Parrot is very simple minded and can only handle one client at a time and is therefore not suitable for use as a shared resource via the Internet.
The Gateway allows for use of NXDN Talk Groups to control the access to the various NXDN reflectors. It speaks the same language as Icom repeaters to the MMDVM so can be used as a gateway for Icom NXDN repeaters. It also includes experimental support for Kenwood NXDN repeaters.
The Gateway has an ini file that contain the parameters for running the software. The filename of the ini file is passed as a parameter on the command line. The Parrot takes the UDP port number to listen on as an argument.
The MMDVM .ini file should have the IP address and port number of the client in the [NXDN Network] settings.
These programs build on 32-bit and 64-bit Linux as well as on Windows using Visual Studio 2019 on x86 and x64.
