Here is a link to all you wanted to know about Hytera. Some quick points, Hytera is the parent to HYT but NOT TYT. Hytera prides itself on being the world leader in DMR Tier II and III standards based systems. Worldwide it is only second to Motorola in the public safety market. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hytera
Hytera distinguishes its models by the use of Letters and Numbers Typically in a LL-NNN format which is explained below. X is used as a null placeholder for the model breakout.
LX: Radio Type
XL: Radio Capability
#XX: Class of equipment
X#X: Interface Type
XX#: Country Code
Until further notice, we highly recommend sysops to keep Hytera repeaters on firwmare v8 when connecting to BrandMeister. Updating to a non tested version may break connectitvity to the network in case they changed something in the protocol.
Configuration of Hytera Repeater ================================ IP MultI-Site Connect --------------------- Manual Set DNS On/Off: checked DNS Server IP: 126.96.36.199 (for example :-) Repeater Type: IP Multi-Site Slave Jitter Buffer Length: 8 Master UDP-Port: 50000 IP Multi-Site Networking UDP-Port: 50000 IP Multi-Site Service: checked IP Multi-Site Service UDP Port: 50001 Remote RDAC: checked Remote RDAC UDP-Port: 50002 Master Domain On/Off: checked Domain Names: master.example.com (for example :-)
Typically the Hytera repeater has issues with an empty Network Authentication Key field. When you clear the password, it is still sending encrypted connection requests to the server. To solve this problem, you need to fill some text into the password field and upload the codeplug into the repeater then clear the password and upload the codeplug again.
BrandMeister has NAT traversal mechanism for Hytera repeaters. If you have experience with network DMR+ you need to switch off all existing rules of port forwarding.
To avoid problems with strong NAT or multiple repeaters behind single IP we created special tool TellusAgent. TellusAgent is a simple daemon that can run on very cheap hardware such as Raspberry Pi and act as a proxy server for repeater. TellusAgent supports single port IPv4/IPv6 connection on the uplink side and can be run multiple times on the single host inside your intranet.
TellusAgent should be run as many times as many repeaters you have connected by (one instance proxifies single repeater only)
--connect-port <local port for Master service> --control-port <local port for RDAC service> --media-port <local port for DMR service> --server-address <domain name of BrandMeister DMR Server> --server-port <service port of BrandMeister DMR Server> --service-mode <set of bits> bit 0 - print to standard output bit 1 - print to system log bit 2 - run as daemon

With latest firmware (A8) there seems to be some bug with false VSWR alarms. Uncheck the forward power / VSWR alarm options, to get rid off those annoying messages until they fix in some later release.
After changing the frequency on Hytera RD625 - BM dashboard still shows original frequency, not the actual. Repeater normally operates without problems. Looking into the Logs - BM is seeing that the master sends the wrong frequency. (Still the original one before the change) Following will not help: reboot, power OFF / ON, change of channel.
Solution was that I took from another CPS file from another repeater, modified it and applied to RD625 in question.
The probable cause of this problem was the upgrade from version 7.0.x to 7.6.x. When this upgrade happens – it should convert repeaters codeplug to newer CPS and it probably was not successful.
