Send an unchanged NMEA stream over UDP or TCP/IP

Wed Jul 11, 2007 8:26 pm


If your routers/trackers has a static IP use "NMEA data from Router with Static IP." instead:


How do I send a NMEA stream over UDP or TCP/IP to a specific user on GpsGate Server?
Support in dedicated server installation - Yes
Support in shared hosting installation - No

GpsGate Server 1.1 can map a stream of standard NMEA data to a user account in GpsGate Server.

For TCP/IP follow those steps:
1. Create a file named "PipeSettings.xml".
2. You map each user to a TCP/IP port. See sample below:

Code: Select all

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
  <Pipe Username="user1" Port="1001"/>
  <Pipe Username="user2" Port="1002"/>
3. Copy the file to the "Franson NMEA Service" directory. Restart the service. E.g. by running the following two commands from a shell prompt

net stop "Franson NMEA Service"
net start "Franson NMEA Service"

You can also restart the service from the Control Panel or from the "Site administrator" web interface.

For UDP follow those steps
Same steps as for TCP/IP but name the file name is "PipeUdpSettings.xml"

Now you can connect your client devices sending NMEA data to the ports defined in the XML files. Remember to open any firewalls to let traffic through on selected ports.
