hi....everyone. I have a question. Our client is implementing an ERP system and are keen to use data from Gps Server in relation to vehicle information - like location, distance travelled, speed, etc. In data forward option, it appears only raw data goes from Gps Server. Is there a way to send such selective data like location, distance travelled etc for a vehicle when the ERP server queries on the Gps Server?

Try to pass on data in processed for - that is with high value.

If you for example use DataForward, the data is forwarded in the same format it comes from the device. This means a lot of development needs to be done in the ERP system. For example parsing of the protocol. Analyzing the data to make sense of it (reports) etc. (You more or less build a new tracking server)

What you should do is to understand what kind of business problem they try to solve. Do they for example need to know when a specific vehicle arrive? Do they need to know the mileage of vehicles? That is the level you should understand the customer needs on.

* To pull data from GpsGate you for example have the SOAP APIs

GpsGate Server exposes SOAP API:s for integration. Samples and documentation is available in "SOAP Platform Kit" http://update.gpsgate.com/PlatformKit/SoapKit.zip

Quick test of the SOAP API. topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=14668

* And here are examples of ways to get report data

File Reports, export CSV to other systems.
topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=15153

Access Reporting data using SOAP
topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=15489

Copy Report to another server
topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=14012

So.... the first step for you is to understand what the customers business problem. And make sure the customer gets data with as much value as possible. Do not just forward "everything" on a low level. That puts a lot of unnecessary work on the customer, and puts you out of the center.

More info about integration to GpsGate Server here:
topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=8097

Johan

Hi,

Can the data forward support TCP (and not only UDP)?

Thanks.

What is the use case you cannot cover with UDP?

I need to forward the data to another server which only accepts TCP. Can the existing dataforward feature be upgraded to send TCP data to receiving server ?

Tried the Data Forward feature for two types of devices Calamp and Concox. Data fowarding works fine with Calamp. However for Concox the data for some of the trips is missing from the receiving server. Once the connection is established on the receiving server the data is forwarded correctly. However after a disconnect when the next connection is established on the sending server, the new connection is not established on the receiving server and the whole trip data is missing till the next session is established again. Pl. note that Calamp trackers send data using UDP while Concox trackers send data using TCP. At the receiving server both are enabled using UDP.

Use the Terminal to examine what data is coming in to the receiving server and how the data is processed by GpsGate.

I am getting following error on "pofiler"

The type 'GpsGate.Terminal.Profiler.Web.TerminalProfiler' is ambiguous: it could come from assembly 'C:\GpsGateServer\IIS\bin\GpsGate.Terminal.Web.DLL' or from assembly 'C:\GpsGateServer\IIS\bin\GpsGate.Terminal.Profiler.Web.DLL'. Please specify the assembly explicitly in the type name.

pl. help.
