When you do not have access to the HTML port 80, then yiu can edit the MMDVM config directly by th ecommand line.
I use sercure shell, ssh or Putty on Windows to login to the Repeater and use the command line to edit /etc/mmdvmhost
file. Fire set the file syste, to read write with "rpi-rw" command and then I use the "sudo vi" command to edit /etc/mmdvmhosts.
This file is separated into stanzas denoted by square brackets with each stanza covering a different are of functionasllity.
As as example, if I wished to change the DMR server address I would. made a copy of the mmdvmhost file to mmdvmhost.[yyyymmdd]scroll down to the [DMR Network] stanza, find the "Address=" field and make the changes, adding a comment line, i the format [gnlyyyymmdd commnet], above to remind me of the changes I have made. The "gnl" is fairly unique so I can quickly search for nay changes I have made and the [yyyymmdd] will let me find the copied backup file so I can restore to the last working state if I have made a botch up of the job.
It is also handy to make a full config backup.

By standard definition the DIAL paramater in the option string functions like this:
DIAL=0 Turns off Dail-a-TG feature where DIAL=9 Permits Dial-a-TG on time slot 2 and defaults time slot 2 to TG9
Other behaivour is:
Another issues I was having is that the Private Call Hold Timer in the CPS was set to 1 sec,
so the dialed TG was lost 1 second after releasing the PPT. Initially I thought the server was at fault.
The Anytones come set to 1 sec. I now have to set to infinity so I have to change channels to
release the dialed TG. The Setting on the RT3s is default of 4 seconds and a maximium of 7 seconds.
The settings on my OpenGD77 may be different.
Something to check if you are using Dial-a-TG. With the Anytones the setting is found in the
Code Plug Software(CPS):
CPS -> Public -> Optional Setting -> Digital Func -> Private Call Hold Time
