Ok, last post I talked about the possibility of being able to subscribe to a published GPS.

Well I've only gone and done it.   

I've built a small GPS server that broadcasts the data from a connected GPS.  This is the server running -


To attach type TELNET localhost 2947   at your favourite command prompt.

You'll see the GPS being broadcast like so -


(looks about the same doesn't it, which I guess is the whole point)

Full Visual Studio project  -

Let my know what you think?    Its a multi-threaded server, which isn't my strongest programming area.  Please feel free to shoot me down.    I haven't tried it with a real GPS so currently its just looping around a file to simulate a connection to a real device.    

Next to try building a client and a way of auto-discovering GPSd servers.   Anyone got a cruise ship I can install this on?

Happy Christmas All.
