Board » Technical Discussion » Using AGL...canot connect to port 5010

Im trying to use AGL to collect data for input to Qvtlm. NMEA data can not connect to my port 501 (im using imac, hi sierra). I have tried about seven different number combinations (5001 5011 5050 5070...even 6969)_ and still not connecting to the port. Any suggestions pls?
Firstly, are you getting any errors in AGL like Port in use? Secondly, you don't have any old AGL's running (that have crashed and you can't see the screen anymore). Thirdly, what error message are you getting in qt? And finally, have you got qt configured correctly? The attach snapshots are of my settings
Kipper, here is the error message i get.
It seems AGL is not able to connect to my computer port to end the NMEA info.
I thought that once i get the NMEA info on AGL, qt will then automatically import it. Problem is, that if my comuter is not getting the AGL data then qt will not have anything to read.
here is the error on qt... i need to set it up so it read the 6969 port, but the error will be the same. ill ouble check and send ss.

OK... now AGL has new info re Port 6969....it appears port 6969 was connected, then it closed... see attached ss.
FarrQ2 - Use Port 5010 instead.

Bimmer, thx for the note. ive tried 5010 repeatedly and it did not work. it must be some thing with the way my imac is set up. i will need to find a mac user.
