:!: Attention!
This functionality is available if Retranslator module is activated.

Messages from units can be retranslated in real-time from your server to other servers or systems. It is possible to retransmit data to several servers simultaneously and at different protocols. The ID of a retranslated unit can be different from its ID in Wialon.

Retranslation is possible only in CMS Manager and it is done in the Retranslators panel. There you can create any number of retranslators that will transmit messages of selected units to other systems. At any moment, any retranslator can be stopped or started again.

To create a retranslator, press the Create Retranslator button. In the dialog input a name for the retranslator (at least 4 characters) and choose a retranslation protocol. At the moment, the following retranslation protocols are available:

  • Wialon Retranslator,
  • Nis (M2M),
  • Granit Navigator,
  • Scout,
  • Cyber GLX,
  • Wialon IPS (1.1),
  • VT 300,
  • EGTS,
  • SOAP,
  • TransNavi,
  • NVG,
  • RTTI.

Then indicate retranslation server, port, and in some cases authorization (auth). If the port is not indicated, it is set to defaults. Authorization for Nis protocol is login and password separated by colon (login:password). As for the EGTS protocol, you can disable authorization if it is irrelevant, indicate time interval (in seconds) at the end of which authorization will be repeated, and set dispatcher ID. Moreover, you can indicate carrier ID for the RTTI protocol.

Below select units for retranslation. To do this, move units from the left list (available units) to the right list (units for retranslation) by double-clicking on a unit or using the arrow-shaped buttons. Besides, you can input a new ID for units to be retranslated. To retransmit data by Granit Navigator protocol, unit ID should be a number in the range from 0 to 65535.

:!: Attention!

  • Data from units with empty IDs cannot be transmitted. For that reason, such units are not saved in the list of units for retranslation and when you reopen the dialog, you will see them in the left part again.
  • For units with two IDs, the first is shown.

When a new retranslator is created, it is stopped. It can be started from the list of retranslators or in the dialog of its properties.

In the results panel, you can see retranslator's name, creator, retranslation protocol, server address, state, and buttons to start/stop retranslator and delete it. Click on a retranslator to view/change its properties.

There is a specially developed app to work with retranslators — Protocoller.
