    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 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.

Geraldton to Cape Town 2022
A race in the Southern Indian Ocean is always entertaining, especially in a Riptide 50. Traditionally the course would be West to East, to take advantage of the prevailing winds, but this time the SRC is challenging us to an E-W course, from Geraldton in Western Australia to Cape Town in South Africa. A brief 4800nm!
