Re: End of WU Wecam Service.

That's a shame, but I suppose we had a good run.
Not sure what my next plan is yet.

Re: Fine Offset station protection

how can I protect the new one from suffering the same fate? Probably the best protection you can have (from endless frustration) is enclosing both the receiver and transmitter units in one of these type of enclosures. https://encrypted-tbn1.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcQ27-laXLyiQUUrvh7ywh5QnRTQr...

Re: Vantage Vue Pro2 and Belfryboy Logger issue

Maybe in the 15 minutes the USB port is going to sleep? I'd ensure that the ports power management doesn't allow this (if it is set).

Re: Run Cumlulus MX via WAN IP?

Glen, it looks like you've got you read around. Just to point out the oblivious issue with using IP's. Each modem restart and location move can get different IP's each time, and even possibly on both the host or client ends. DNS updaters like No-IP could be of help if you don't at least have a stati...
