    Hi jf44,

    Thank you for your reply.
    I got the sentences from ComCap using the IP adress you post and is usually working fine now.
    Due my fault (in ComCap settings) I was not recieving the sentences.
    If possible to you send me your PHP program I will be apreciate. The MSSQL database has a entrie for json data file. Even ComCap will work just for 60min and desconect (as free software) to test it.

    my email is : mariorbr@hotmail.com

    If you host your PHP program let me know and I will go and download it.

    Thank you.

  • NMEA server data TCP/IP?
    Board » Technical Discussion
    Hi Kroppyer,

    I´m trying to populate a database (MSSQL) with NMEA sentence.
    Usually I´m using a ComCap Data Capture Utility designed to capture data received on PC RS232 serial communications ports or using network TCP/IP and UDP streams. (http://www.magsys.co.uk/comcap/)

    I´m needing a remote IP Adress/Host and IP Port to get the NMEA sentences. Is it possible to have it from the DC_checker Server or Branaid Server?
    Thanks in advance.

    I also have been playing in beta a while and I had the same feeling as you kroppyer. The controls was not good as I imagined. But in my opinion it was not ready to go.I believe it was developing something more faithful (I hope). Moving around the cockpit was a bad too in terms of facility (mouse and keyboard control). The map to get a position was still not well defined (zoom in and zoom out I means).

    " usability might have improved enough to be able to focus on sailing rather than messing with the controls " ... that what I´m expecting too.

    The point we can have a crew and sail in the same boat which each one can have control of something is really nice and other things like real weather around the world.

    Let see what will come, but at least it is looking come something really nice as simulator. I´ve got early access. I´m really wainting for.

    Hi maitai,

    I got it working. I did not start NMEA into qtVlm at the first time.
    After start it everything went well.

    Hi maitai,

    I change from "VLM mode" to "Real Mode" and set the NMEA>TCP Server settings. I did not get the instruments working, and boat online position as well.
    I got some infomations from this website:


    but look like it´s not more applicable.
    I saw some pictures from other Sailor using GPS into the qtVlm and it was looking like running well.

    I´ll keeping trying.
    Any other help will be apreciate. Thkans
  • qtVlm & brainaids NMEA proxy
    Board » Technical Support

    I´ve been trying to load boats data and position into qtVLM using the brainaid proxy ( http://sol.brainaid.de/sailonline/toolbox/NMEAproxy.jnlp?race=1025&boat=47box).
    The procedures I did was:
    1)Load the braiaid NMEA proxy (that was "ok").
    2)Into qtVlm I went to "VLM mode".
    3)qtVlm > Configuration > ...
    > "Conecting using a proxy".
    >Proxy type: "System default proxy"
    >Proxy Server (from brainaid toolbox): http://sol.brainaid.de/sailonline/toolbox/NMEAproxy.jnlp?race=1025&boat=47box
    >Port Number: 5010
    > User & Password as required.

    After these settings I restart the qtVlm and look like the conection has been established.

    I could not see after established the connection, the boats and datas inside the MAP.

    Is it possible to have boats visualisation online on qtVLM? Someone can help the procedure or point me somewhere to have the info? Thank you.

Next Race: 00d 00h 00m

Current Races:

Fremantle to Bali 2022
It is time for a revival of one of Australia's iconic races, the 1427 nm long "Fremantle to Bali" race, and it's considered to be a true test of seamanship.
Last raced in 2021 Super Maxi 100, we will do it this year in a Sun Fast 3300 which is considerably slower!

Baker Lake Ice Race 2022
Up north, it’s Winter, so time to put your skates on, but first you’ll have to airfreight them, your carbon spars, your mylar sails and your DN hull to Baker Lake, for a 109nm race, the first of 4 (3 to count) at high speed before the ice melts! Well inside the Arctic Circle, this is a cold, cold place, where the wind is rarely benign. No Performance Loss, so put your goggles on, wrap up well, and try to get round as quick as you can!

Christmas Is (Pac) to Christmas Is (Ind) 2022
Two waypoints, start and finish, and between them 5827 NM of two oceans. Not much time if we want to sit at the Christmas Eve table. You will need to maintain an average speed of over 10 knots, so prepare your Volvo70s well and choose the best of the many possible routes. Hands up everyone who knew there were TWO Christmas Islands?! OK, maybe you have sailed this Sailonline course before... but it's time to get ready for the 2022 challenge of racing between Christmas Island in the Pacific to Christmas Island in the Indian Ocean! Please have fun! Fair winds!

The Three Kings Race 2022
The Three Kings Offshore Race is a 520 nm challenge, in Farr 38s, from Auckland (Orakei) up and around the Three Kings Islands and then back to Auckland finishing where you started. Manawa Islands (Three Kings) are a group of 13 uninhabited islands about 25 nm northwest of Te Rerenga Wairua aka Cape Reinga. They're also about 250nm due north of Auckland, known also as the world's best diving and fishing locations (although hopefully, you won’t be fishing too much during the race, or diving for that matter) and it is just a beautiful yet rugged place that is a must see for anyone who loves the oceans.
