Hi Johnn,

Yes you can use the ShipTrax network without the antenna connected. The ethernet port allows ShipTrax to run without being directly connected to a computer.

e.g You can place the ShipTrax box connected via a ethernet cable to your router. (ShipTrax will need to be powered by a 12V connector) You can then run ShipTrax on a pc which is connected to the router and get it to connect to the ShipTrax box.

...and means you can sent your data to a remote hosting site, so you can view your daily log of all data at a later time??
Can you do so A.N. ???

Hi AirNav,

Do you have any future plans to sell ShipTrax software separately (i.e. without ShipTrax hardware)?

Regards,

Can you sent data via udp or ip to yr own hosting provider for backup, so that later on you can replay this data in yr own Shiptrax software.
This way you could look at what happened early on the day when at work etc.

You connect ShipTrax to a router.  That then makes available the AIS messages on port 10110, which you can access from anywhere in the world, as long as your router's firewall allows an incoming connection.  You could then run something like AIS Dispatcher on the remote host to record the TCP/IP AIS messages, and replay them later back to ShipTrax.

The ShipTrax software also has it's own recording facility, much like Radarbox.

A nice option for people who don't want to run a PC for 24/7
