gpsout , widefs , and movin map display


Recommended Posts

I have puzzling problem

setup 1 -one PC

- fs2004 , gpsout-output com2 , mix-w virtual com port 2 and 3 set up , polyview moving map display ( set to receive NMEA on com 3 )

Works brilliantly!!!

Setup 2 two pCs

- master PC , fs2004, gspout-output com1,

client pc , polyview moving map display ( ( set to receive NMEA on com 1 )

a borrowed null modem cable attached between master and client to transfer data

works brilliantly !!!

Setup 3 two pCs

- master PC , fs2004, Widefs(latest version ) , gspout.ini set to port=widefs

client pC , wideclient.ini set to port com2, speed 4800 ,mix-w virtual com port 2 and 3 set up , , polyview moving map display ( set to receive NMEA on com 3 )

NO GO ! no Nmea data detected ???

notyhin g wrong with WideFs and wideclient as they do work with other software eg FS commander , AV weather etc so can only think it must be some obscure wideserver.ini or wideclient.ini settings

Tried different comports , diff speeds still no luck ???

then got desperate and swapped PC master into clent and client into master pc and reinstalled correct software for each machine ..

still no luck !!!!

Any ideas is it soem obscuire

Sorry, I've no idea. What you describe almost exactly also describes my setup, on two different machines -- the only difference being that I don't use "polyview" but Jeppesen FliteMap in one WideFS client and Memory Map Navigator in another.

You could try using PortMon (from http://www.systeminternals.com) to monitor all the COM ports on the client and see if they are identified as you are expecting and whether appropriate NMEA data is emerging from one of them. You should also check the WideClient LOG file on that PC to see if it says it opened the right COM port okay.

Regards,

Pete
