Thanks for this! Brilliant!
This worked with very little fiddling.
I am using an older (2006) Lenovo laptop running XP. I have Condor 1.1.5 loaded with a few mods for clouds, etc. I wanted to connect my Samsung Galaxy S5.
The instructions are still basically good, but yes, as one commentator noted earlier:
(1) In XCSoar, you will not find "Devices" at page 14 of the "System" setup menu system -- "Devices" has its own higher level button;
(2) You cannot just rename the "B" device as anything -- you select "TCP Port" and then select the Condor driver, and it will rename itself automatically; and
(3) You must reboot Windows after installing com0com and hub4com (which has com2tcp in it -- I got a little confused about that . . .) BEFORE you go in to ask Condor to find it. And, in my case, I had to go into Device Manager and ask it to reinstall the drivers -- first CNCA0 and then CNCB0 separately -- before I could get it all up and going. So, basically, BEFORE the "CONFIGURATION" instructions, do a reboot and go into Device Manager and look under the LPT and COM port section to see if CNCA0 and CNCB0 are working properly or if instead you have to do the reinstallation of each separately right then and there in Device Mangler.
Also, for those of us who are less computer savvy -- like me -- as another commentator said, to append the parameter for com2tcp to the "Target" field, you do have to right click on the shortcut and go under "Properties".
So now I just tried it out, using some Alps maps, and it worked very well indeed! I should be thinking about using Condor or even going soaring but this techie adventure was fun and now I'm wondering if any progress was made in using the USB cable link or Bluetooth -- just in case I get stuck in a hotel room somewhere or whatever . . .
WOW! THANKS FOR THIS!!!
