IrcDDB remote for android
With this application it is possible to control the ircDDB gateway software from Jonathan Naylor G4KLX remotely via an android device. You can connect and disconnect with your own ircDDB gateway to every D-star reflector, hotspot or call without holding your dstar transceiver.
UPDATE: Please view my new project! http://www.pa7lim.nl/bluespot/
UPDATE: Currently there are issues with the iPad/iPhone ircDDB remote on IOS 9.3. I am working on it!
Start the ircDDBgateway configuration editor on your PC/server.
- Goto the tab “remote”
- Set the tab Remote to Enabled
- Enter a password
- Set Port to 10022
Windows users: Press OK button and restart your computer or restart your ircDDBgateway application. Linux users: File -> save. Restart your computer or restart your ircDDBgateway service. If you don’t reboot or restart, the remote function will not work!
Download the ircDDB remote software at:
Now start the “ircDDB remote” app on your android device.
- press menu button
- goto Settings
- fill in the ip address or hostname of your ircDDB server
- fill in the Server Port 10022
- Fill in your password at Password.
If you have more than one ircddbgateway you can enable also the second server.
Using the application

Connect via selection: Within the mainscreen select the repeater that you want to use. Now select from the pulldown menu’s the reflector that you want to connect.
