Can you send me your debug log. I put some extra debug in that should have said if it noticed a network connection or not and what happened when it did.
Just to keep those interested informed, I've been trying to crack Cerberus's problem. I think it could be any of a couple of things which is leading me towards changing the storage of the tracking data as a database rather than an xml file. This will allow lots of new stuff in terms of displaying the collected data as well. I'm still trying to keep this as simple as possible as its already quite a complicated install (I haven't heard if anyone except for me has it working yet) so hopefully there wont be any more setups or installs to do. Hopefully new version in a couple of days.
I am going to try this out on my carPC tomorrow and let you know how it goes.
Well after a long wait here it is. The all new version 2.0. I found Cerberus's problem and have fixed it. I've completely rewritten the commuications between client and server and changed the data storage to be a sqlite database rather than xml. I picked this because its free (allways a good thing) and it doesn't require lots of extra installation (its one new dll that doesn't even need registering). If you want to look at the data stored then see the release notes for a link to a free program that allows you to do it.
Anyway find it on the first post and please leave any feedback bad or good.
Any one tried it yet?
Cerberus. Did it solve the problem you where having? It took me ages to fix it so I hope so.
I lost my external ip :( So I havent had a chance to play with it.. I will try wifi when i get a min this week ;) Thanks for keeping at it!!!
Got myself a nice 3G mobile broadband setup now so will be testing this in real time mode as well now.
Also found out how to send pictures so will be adding a current webcam picture feature as well. It will rely on some other program taking the picture but will handle sending it to the server.
All the network connection stuff is handled by windows itself. For the client you dont need its ip address only the servers ip address.
The config file has an internal and external ip address. This is the servers ipaddress though, not the clients. If the clients network connection is a wireless one and has the same SSID as that defined in the config file then the internal address is used otherwise the external address is used.
i got this installed per your instructions. The funny thing is when i launch the client app it sends a single point to the server.. but subequent points are not sent... the debug says the server isnt pingable... even though the server clearly is because one point has been sent. This happens each time i start the client app... one point uploads.. then nothing. Any ideas?
