Title: Listening to UDP port
Posted on 2006-06-24
I am doing a GPS application using Vb.net (Windows application).
The application is listening to a UDP port where the GPS data is coming.
The test GPS unit is reporting to the server and I am able to identify the IP of GPS unit thru my program . But the actual data send from the gps unit is not available in my receiving application . Instead, whenever some data comes , I see only 8 byte long junk characters in my application.
(Strangely, if I run another application developed to recieve the GPS data exactly the same way from the same port - After that when I start my application I get all the GPS Data and the 8 byte junk data.)
Someone say something to be done with the socket layer.
Can you help me ?
