This package contains a utility, which connects two PCs through the TCP link and controls the rig using RadioCommand provided in MMTTY/MMSSTV. It is useful for the situation where the PC running MMTTY/MMSSTV has no COM port available.
The figure below shows how NetRadio package works. Let us define that the PC running MMTTY/MMSSTV is the client and the PC hooked to the rig is the server.
------- Client -------
MMTTY or MMSSTV
------- Server -------
On the client PC, place RPClient.mmr to the folder where MMTTY/MMSSTV resides, and start MMTTY/MMSSTV. On the server PC, start RPServer.exe.
Start RPServer.exe and select the port name and parameters for the serial line. If Monitor is checked, the log of the RadioCommand is shown in the monitor window.
On the server PC, start RPServer.exe.
On the client PC, select RPClient in the drop-down list of RadioComand setting of MMTTY/MMSSTV. Other settings are the same as the standard connection.
When you go back to the main window of MMTTY/MMSSTV, a small window of RPClient is popped up. Enter the name or IP address of the server PC and push the Connect button.
If Auto connect is checked, RPClient automatically makes connection to the server PC next time.
After settling the connection, you can push the _ button and minimize the window.
TCP port number
NetRadio uses TCP port 10202 by default. In case this port has already been used by another application, change it to the other number by changing the port value defined in the INI file. Make sure you set the same port number in RPClient.ini and RPServer.ini.
