I have a Garmin 18xHD scanner that I am trying to get working.
The setup is as fallows :
1) FitPC-3 running Win7 and OpenCPN
2) Gradar plugin version 1.4 installed and enabled in Master mode.
3) Garmin scanner connected with shielded patch (strait) cat 5 cable to ethernet
amp connector with an on/off switch between pin 5 and the shield.
4) An unshielded patch cable (strait) between amp connector and the
ethernet port of the FitPC. I have no switch/hub.
5) Recorded GPS
data is feed through usb to the FitPC.
6) No firewall running.
7) Ethernet IPV4 port configured to 172.16.1.1 and mask 255.255.240.0
8) Running Wireshark to se traffic on the ehternet port.
Trying to operate the scanner I do this :
1) Power is applied to the scanner.
2) Switch on the amp connector is turned on.
The LED on the scanner first turns red and then shortly starts flashing green.
is started. The Radar icon has the red dot which never turn amber or green.
4) Clicking the icon does not seem to make the antenna
rotate and there is no echoes received.
All the menues are execcable.
I get UTP packet from source 172.16.2.0 port 50100
Should I have a crossover cable between he amp connector and the FitPC instead?
I doubt that this could be the problem as I am receiving UTP packets from the scanner.
How should the Status indicator on the icon behave. Now it is indefinitely red.
