Wink WiFi connection to Opencpn

I have a raymarine instrument system om board (Seatalk) and an AIS with a NMEA0183 output. I would like to connect both to a shipmodule nmea-wifi multiplexer. The multiplexer will combine the seatalk and nmea data and output in as a TCP IP wifi output. My question is how can I use my PC wifi adapter to enter all the seatalk data and ais data into opencpn using the wifi connection.

Simply enter the network data of the adhoc network you have made between the shipmodul and your pc into the settings of opencpn.

Re: WiFi connection to Opencpn

Thank you very much Gerhard for your quick reaction. Can you give me an example what to enter into OpenCpn to connect to the WiFi signal. When connected what does OpenCpn use from the signal asuming that the WiFi signal contains all the instrument data like depth, wind, speed, cog, sog, AIS, gps.
Should I also use some other software to display some data that opencpn normally does not display?

astrang,
make an incoming connection similiar as shown in the picture. The text strings of the picture will be in your language. Your instruments data should be visible with Dashboard when you configure the needed instruments in Dashboard settings. No other software is needed.
