Help! AgOpenGPS won’t get an Ntrip correction today. I get a “Socket” error. It was working a few days ago however I’m swapping the tablet between 2 setups, the tractor with an Ardusimple getting NTRIP through Agopengps and the other using a Navspark module which uses RTKLIB STRSRV as it needs 2 serial ports.
STRSRV seems to be working fine and Auscors is up, but in AgoOpengps something weird seems to be happening with the IP address. With the usual IP I can see the mountpoints fine in the NTRIP dialog screen, but if I press the confirm IP buttom I get what appears to be a MAC address and that comes up as an invalid IP.
I’m trying to get to tier3.auscors.ga.gov.au . Any Australians able to confirm the IP that’s working for them? Or is there a way to look up the IP address or change the code so it uses the web address rather than IP.
My guess is the service is either not a fixed IP or it has multiple IPs and it’s gone and changed on me.
Well, RTKLIB worked and AgOpenGPS didn’t in this case so the only difference I see is AgOpenGPS is using the IP and RTKLIB is using the web address. Why there was a “Socket” problem I’m not sure … could also be IOS as the hotspot maybe? AgOpenGPS could reach and interpret the sourcetable with the correct IP but not with the MAC address that was coming up. Have a small spraying job this afternoon so will try again on the tractor.
I had some issues with my connection (not the same - just drop-outs) at harvest time, at the time also blaming my phone (which I’ve since changed and haven’t had a connection problem since). I did wonder if the AusCORs system has times of high load but I’d be a bit surprised as I’d expect commercial providers would likely take the correction and repeat it through their own servers if they aren’t using their own bases.
