How to connect GpsGate Server to ORBCOMM

If you have a hosted server contact support for setup

1. Add ORBCOMM Web Service accounts.

You can add one or many accounts. There is no web gui for this, each account must be inserted directly in the database in the outgoing_web_service table.

Example which adds your sample URL:

Code: Select all

INSERT INTO outgoing_web_service (namespace,url, username, password, call_interval) 
VALUES ('ORBCOMM', 'url', 'username', 'password', 60);
namespace - must be "GlobalTrack"
url - is the URL to the web service without arguments. e.g "".
username - the username to ORBCOMM gateway
password - the password
call_interval - interval in seconds between calls to web service.

2. Start "listener"

Login to SiteAdmin
Go to "NMEA Service" tab
Stop and restart "NMEA Service"

3. Add devices.

The IMEI number for added devices should match unit ID

4. Resolving errors

The logfile in the "Franson Nmea Service" folder contain all essential information you need for error tracking.

GpsGate Server will process row items until it fails on one item. GpsGate Server will then retry this item at each "call_interval".
