Same here. 13 days and no issues.
 :grin:

Any updates? I eventually gave up it would work for days or a week but stop sending data restart would fix the issue.

Since then i have built a new PC and have been looking at trying it again. Or has anyone found another way to use multiple software? I see that meteobridge has a pass through.

... I do that with multiple systems and have a VP1->virtualVP on one system->VirtualVP on a second system so I can run a bunch of weather software varieties (for testing with the templates).


How exactly do you have a second VirtualVP setup on a second computer that is fed by VirtualVP on the first computer?  What are the settings you have for both VirtualVP instances that allow for this?   Thanks!

There are a couple more software programs involved: serial port emulators.  I use 'com0com' 64 bit on the dependent computers:

and N8VBvCom on the old 32 bit main computer:


The Main Computer's VVP:

and the Main Computer's VVP Settings:


The Dependent Computer's VVP:

and the Dependent Computer's VVP Settings:


In essence it isn't a trivial exercise to get everything set up properly so it works.  But it's well worth the effort.

(And as you can see my setup is very much 'over-the-top' with the backup computers and all.)

So I was under the impression that Virtual VP could only be set up to receive either a serial connection or an IP connection.  What I didn't realize is that if I only have a Vantage Pro 2 that communicates via serial, that Virtual VP will also communicate that information from serial to an IP address.  Am I understanding this correctly?

@ piconut

I've only tested it on my LAN, and it works flawlessly as configured above.
