GSM.Identity.Shortname ignored by Cell (works in OpenBTS)
« on: August 30, 2015, 06:06:09 PM »
Hi,

It seems that GSM.Identity.ShortName is having no impact.

The same cellphone does display the correct shortname when set using OpenBTS5, therefore I think the issue probably lies with YateBTS and not the cellphone.
YateBTS seems more stable than OpenBTS (where GPRS fails etc, but small issues like this could do with tidying!)

Could this be looked into?

Thanks.

That issue was solved only in the commercial version of YateBTS as it uses a private library.
So, in the opensource version  that particular settings has no effect.

Ahh ok, thanks for explaining! Maybe the web UI could be updated to reflect this.

Is it not possible for yatebts to do this in the sameway openbts does (I thought OpenBTS was opensource)?
