Google maps

Thu Mar 27, 2008 12:52 pm

We are running tests on the programme "GPSGATESERVER" and we are very
satisfied.
But we have a problem with "google map".
We should be able to use the program both in local LAN and the Internet,
but the key google only works with an IP address.
You can solve this problem in any way?

Thanks in advance
Best regards

in order to use "google maps" you need to have a internet connection, (but this is also a requirement for gpsgate in case you tracking by using gprs)

google maps works on private network adresses with any key.

i have here in the network 192.168 and 172.16.60 networks ... where google maps works fine on

(one of the machines in the local networks is a server we use to develop gpsgate workarrounds wich is be accessed by IP adress ... without an hostname.

this is a development workarround of google code ... but not for production use.

The free version of Google Maps will only work on public IP addresses. You need to review the Google Maps agreement to make sure you meet their requirements.

You might need a Google Maps Enterprise agreement.

You can also import maps:

Or you can let us host your server, in which case Google Maps transactions are included

Oups ... i just see this isnt like i just say before ;-)

anyway the workarround is to register a hostname (lets say 12345.yourdomain.com) ( a not existing one)
for a googlemaps key.

add this key in your LAN server on SiteAdmin.

then on the machines want to access gpsgateserver
append the host 12345.yourdomain.com with the IP of your gpsgateserver (the internal IP)
in %WINDIR%\system32\drivers\etc\hosts

then simply point with you browser to http://12345.yourdomain.com ;-)

anyway .. internal enterprise use of google maps requires a (not free) agreement with google.
