I am preparing for a passage
from St Martin
and have been attempting to obtain Viewfax (Beta version) files via my Iridium
Extreme Satphone with the Axcesspoint accessory which makes the phone
I can make a wireless connection from my WinXP Laptop
to the Satphone but when I request a Viewfax file, say a grib file for instance which only is a small size say around 6kb nothing is received and a error message is received on Viewfax which is shown below.
A dialog box opens titled File Download Progress which has a message in it of Initialising Fetch
A few seconds later the error message comes up:-
Exception testing connection. Socket error # 11001
Host not found.
I have tried both of the request buttons at the bottom of the Viewfax page. The one next to the wrench is the one I normally use through my home wifi
connection. I have also used the Request button at the bottom of the page which says it sends the request via Saildocs but also nothing received.
I would appreciate any advice from any users of the Iridium
Extreme Satphone with the Axcesspoint accessory who can successfully obtain Viewfax files.
