Reservations


Top   SNIP Knowledge Base

Important Feature: Reservations

Prefer to have your mountPt string and settings reserved?  The reservation feature of SNIP allows this.

Drop us a note at our support email,  support [at] use-snip.com and we can set that up for you in RTK2go.    We need to know the following information from you:

  1. What do you want your reserved mountPt to be called, the Name of the entry?
  2. Do you want your mountPt to be Parsed.
    If the data is RTCM3, they the answer is certainly yes.
    If the data is CMR or a proprietary format such as uBox the answer would be no.
    If you are unsure, say no.
  3. Do you want your mountPt to Public or be be Private (hidden)
    so that others do not see it in the Caster Table.
    The default is to leave your mountPt public, in which case it will appear in
    the Caster Table for other parties to be able to find it.
  4. Where is the data source located, give us a short string such as “Isle of Man”
    “Los Angeles, Calif”  “My Backyard” or the like.  This helps others find your site.
    Your country code is also of value, but not essential.
  5. If you will be sending in data from a single IP that never changes, let us know the value.
    This allows the reservation to only allow that IP, blocking potential attackers.
    The default is not to restrict the IP.
    And besides, if you have a static IP you can do many of the same
    things RTK2go.com does with a Lite copy of SNIP.
  6. If this data is not going to be parsed, and if you can provide use with a
    Proper Caster Table entry for your stream,  please do so.
    (SNIP will fill out that Caster Table entry for parsed RTCM3 data type).

We will send you a reply (typically within 24 hours) with a unique password for your use.

When your reservation is activated, no one will be allowed to log on to it except with the unique password and with the IP selected above (if selected).

Aside: Until the reservation is activated you can send in the same data without a reservation like everyone else.   So if it was working a short time ago and  just stopped, it’s a clear sign your reservation was just activated.  Use the assigned password from that point onward.

If you can spare a moment more, a short note about how you are using RTK2go is always appreciated.

There is no cost for this service.  We are now running the RTK2go Caster to default any PUSH-In new connection as “unparsed” in order to support our CMR/CMR+ user community.  But a reservation with parsing enabled is also the best way to send SNIP RTCM 3 messages and have it parse over them and set up the Caster Table Entry automatically for you.

NOTE: A note to “emlid” or “Reach” users:  Please consider getting a reservation set up with us.  If you are sending RTCM3 data to this node, and if creating the Caster Table entry is too complex, then let SNIP automatically do it for us.  As per the above, drop us a short email and get a reservation for the mountPt name you want.

NOTE: A note to RTKLIB users:  Please consider getting a reservation setup with us.  You can then leave the Caster string detail blank in any other RTKLIB tools  (e.g. RTKNAVI or STRSVR)  and SNIP will automatically complete the correct entry for you, if parsing is enabled.   As per the above, drop us a short email and get a reservation for the mountPt name you want.
