Firstly I wish to sincerely thank any of the developers of OpenCPN
who may read my thread for all their hard work in making your application the success it is. I had struggled without much success with an alternative commercial
solution on my yacht for over 12 months. So now I have resigned to the fact my related investment in more recent "encrypted" versions of C-map
vector maps appear to have been a dead end. Incidentally these maps appear to be no more up to date than the CM93 sources in Southern Australia
where I sail.
Anyway I am wondering if any readers may have experience with Muxing NMEA
data over WiFi
based IP on Windows7 (64bit). I have experimented with getting 2 PCs to share this data with limited success. Does anyone have a recommended step by step "cake recipe" I can follow to setup the "host" and "slave" PCs as a WiFi
I expect the "host" PC that forwards the NMEA
data from hard wired sources would likely require a static IP address then modifications to the Windows 7 firewall involved to allow the data out and then in to the "slave PC".
Has anyone had success getting this working reliably? If so does it work with more than one slave PC?
