Sending data via UDP

Postby noobee » Sun Feb 16, 2014 7:34 pm

Hey there,

I am trying to configure flightgear to send data via UDP. At the beginning it is only the altitude and the heading values. There's a how to on doing that but it doesn´t seem to work for me. My configuration is a little bit complex but I try to explain it anyway. :D

My computer is running on a Win 7 system where Simulink is working. On that System I have a virtual machine running an Ubuntu 12.04 LTS system on which flighgear is running. It works very nice without crashing or something else. 8)

I am starting flighgear with the launcher. In the last step during the launcher configuration at the advanced menu I am adding the “Input/Output” option which looks like:


First of all I wanted to catch the UDP packets in the virtual machine using wireshark what doesn´t work.
The my_protocol.xml looks like this:

<?xml version="1.0"?>

<name>altitude to go</name>



I was expecting seeing the UDP packets in wireshark during the flight. What am I doing wrong??? :(
