GPSout and WideFS


Recommended Posts

Peter,

I am trying to get pocketFMS connected to FS9, but unfortunately it is not working.

My configuration is a kind of Standard 2 PC config:

- PC 1 with FS9.1, FSUIPC 3.65, WideFS 6.47 (registered)

- PC2 with WideFS Client 6.47 and several add-on (e.g. AS6, FSBuild 2.2 and OpenCockpit with SIOC).

This is long time in use and working with no problem.

In order to use pocketFMS I had to install additional:

- PC1: GPSout

- PC2: MixW ComEmulDrv

Now all necessary ini file additions where done.

To GPSout.ini file on PC1 was added:

[GPSout]

....

Port=WideFS

Speed=9600

...

To WideClient.ini on PC2 I addeda new section:

[GPSout]

Port=COM7

Speed=9600

The ComEmul was configured in the Devicemanager with:

Pair#1 COM7 and COM8

pocketFMS is set to receive GPS data on COM8.

So far so good (I hope), but no GPS is coming.

I used PortMon for monitoring GPSout on PC1. It is working ok. Next step was to use PortMon on PC2 to monitor COM7 which is the output of WideClient. Unfortunately nothing is on COM7 port.

My question now:

Did I forget a setting?

How can I check if WideFS is transmiting correctly? I have no hint in WideClient.log for something like "GPSout strted" also nothing in WideServer.log on PC1.

Can you help?

Thanks a lot

FSUIPC 3.65 and WideFS 6.47 are pretty old versions now and not supported.

- PC1: GPSout

Please check the documentation. you will see that WideFS did not support GPSout until version WideFS 6.50 (and even that one was released about 16 months ago!).

Please occasionally check the Announcements in this Forum, or even look in the normal downloads page for updates. Please always certainly be sure to try the latest versions before complaining about any problems or something not working. In this particular case you are attempting to use a facility that never existed in the old versions you are using.

Regards

Pete
