I'm using OCPN 3.2.2 on Win 7 Ultimate.
I have two connections in current
use (taken from the ini file):
What I'm doing is using kplex
running on a router to distribute NMEA
data through the boats wifi
AP. The USB cables
that used to plug
into the laptop
into the router.
These two connections are what I have found I need to emulate the hard wired connections to my laptop
. The only talkers are a Furuno GPS
and a NASA AIS engine
, kplex multiplexes those onto port 10110 on the router. The output connection from port 10111 goes to a Raymarine Autopilot
via the same connection as the GPS
data, it has an Actisense adapter to split input from output. This all works.
When the 'options' dialog is opened in OCPN, the output port suspends transmission
(from viewing the NMEA
Debug window). When the 'Options' dialog is closed, transmission
on the output port resumes.
Is this by design ?
The net effect is that the kplex listener sees the data stream end and closes itself when the 'Options' dialog is opened.
