Hi Henk,
no problems with NMEA-Proxy, NAVMONPC

but: my BWR does not see any GPS data.
don't know why.
"09-10 09:48: Unable to open COM2 on channel 1:
couldn't open "COM2": no such file or directory..."

Any idea ?
Regards Poco
interesting, also on a VM win 8 machine it does not work here...
Poco, your problem seems something else ?
my problem looks like a java autostart issue..

hmm, i will mess further...

Eddie says

" What I saw on my computer: The proxy does not open, but informs me that I need to install a new Java Runtime Environment from Oracle. There where security issues with jre-1.6, so firefox disables this Java Runtime. After installing Java Runtime 1.7 the proxy opens the normal way."

I am mostly using Chrome and recently Java updated itself to Java 7 but my test-opening of Brainaid's proxy is still not working so I have told him so. I tried in IE too.

Please would anyone else with a problem post more detailed info if possible?

I don't usually use this proxy, but know how to use it.

This is what I just did, I clicked on the link, input my info to Brainaid's Toolbox, click on Navigation, then on the button which downloads the file.. then I should just click on the d/l file?

When I do so, the cursor goes "eggtimer" as if it is doing something but the NMEA window doesn't open.

Is this what you are all getting? Is anyone getting anything different?

Running Java 7 Update4 (Build 1.7.0_04-b22) on Vista
Brainaids Proxy works fine. No probs.

Poco - which browser are you using please?
Just fiddled around, but on win 7 and 8 i get the error java web start launcher fails

basically it won't start ?

Win7, latest java
Poco - which browser are you using please?
Hi RC, running Chrome for SOL, other stuff with FF. But the Java-Tool does not depend/ need a Browser.

Regards Poco
Poco - thanks.. just useful for Eddie to know where it is working as he asked me earlier what browser I was using (Chrome has built-in Java I think?)

Dikkehenk - I have let brainaid know the error message you are getting (which is more than I get)!

Every piece of information might be useful!
Hi all,

I do not have windows 7 here, so can't really test... Maybe the hints on the following web site help?

Could someone with windows 7 please verify that .jnlp is correctly associated with Java Webstart?

Thanks a lot,

The sea is lovely, dark, and deep, But I have promises to keep, And miles to sail before I sleep, And miles to sail before I sleep.

Current Races:

Auckland to Fiji 2023

Welcome to Auckland and, for the fifth time in Sailonline's history, an epic race to the Polynesian island of Fiji , some 1144nm away. The iconic Steinlager 2 has traditionally been our boat of choice for this event, including in 2020, the last time we raced the course – alone, unaccompanied by a real fleet as it had been #COVID19 quarantined. Hopefully, though, this time we’ll again be showing you how you are doing versus the real tracked boats. Have fun!

Cape Town to Auckland 2023
Welcome to this second RTW race 2023. It's also the June edition of this year's ocean race championship. The course is slightly different from the one sailed in 2020, which then also was part of the RTW series.
This time we will race in the IMOCA 60 foil, as in all RTW races this year. That should guarantee the fun in the South Seas in a truly tough race.

CA 500 2023

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the TransPac Ocean Race in 2019, the organisers of the California Race Week introduced a new longer distance event for line-honours machines. Popular with the largest maxi trimarans, this CA 500, 500nm from San Francisco to San Diego, repeats in 2023, and if you don’t own a maxi trimaran, Sailonline are delighted to have the honour to, for the first time, make their virtual version available to you for a quick ethereal dash down America’s west coast.

Iceberg Dodge TIMED Race 2023
Designed by NZL_Scotsman, this 34nm TIMED race takes us around Kobbermine Bugt. This is the 4th iteration of this race, having been held every 3 years since 2014. Climate change may have eased our access to these fjords but watch your roundings - navigating around those islands continue to remain tricky! The target time to beat is 5:01:11, set in 2017.
