Is the component that support Tracker/GPS/AIS protocols. It receives packet from GPRS network and write them on disk thought MySQL or MogoDB database backend.


npm install ggserver


Edit config/*** file to reflect your configuration

Command line

* Tracker/GPS/AIS server
  - node bin/GeoGateServer.js --debug=3 --config=DummyBackend
  - telnet localhost 4000

* Debug Tracker adapter
  - node bin/Tracker2Json.js  --adapter=Gps103Tk102 --port=1234  [wait for tracker incoming packet on localhost:1234]
