    33BNC comes with a number of configuration examples which can be used on all
    4 operating systems. You may use a statically linked BNC executable to run the
    5 configuration examples. Configuration 'PPPGoogleMaps.bnc' is an exception
    6 from this because it requires a shared library BNC build.
    7 
    8 If not already done then copy the complete directory 'Example_Configs' to you
    9 disc. It contains sub-directories 'Input' and 'Output'. There are several ways to
    10 start BNC using one of the example configurations:
    11 
    12 * On graphical systems (except for Mac systems) you may use the computer mouse to
    13   'drag' a configuration file icon and 'drop' it on top of BNC's program icon.
    14 * On non-graphical systems you may start BNC using a command line with the
    15   following option for a configuration file (example for Windows systems):
    16   bnc.exe --conf <configFileName> --nw
    17 
    18 Although it's not a must, we suggest that you always create BNC configuration
    19 files with the file name extension '.bnc'.
    20 
    21 We furthermore suggest for convenience reasons that you configure your system
    22 to automatically start BNC when you double-click a file with the file name
     4operating systems. Copy the complete directory 'Example_Configs' which comes
     5with the software including sub-directories 'Input' and 'Output' to your disc.
     6There are several ways to start BNC using one of the example configurations:
     7
     8* On graphical systems (except for Mac systems) you may use the computer mouse
     9  to 'drag' a configuration file icon and 'drop' it on top of BNC's program icon.
     10
     11* You could also start BNC using a command line for naming a specific
     12  configuration file (suggested e.g. for Mac systems):
     13  bnc --conf <configFileName>
     14
     15* On non-graphical systems or when running BNC in batch mode in the background
     16  you may start the program using a command line with a configuration file
     17  option in 'no window' mode (example for Windows systems):
     18  bnc.exe --conf <configFileName> --nw
     19
     20Although it's not a must, we suggest that you always create BNC configuration
     21files with the filename extension '.bnc'.
     22
     23We furthermore suggest for convenience reasons that you configure your system
     24to automatically start BNC when you double-click a file with the filename
    2325extension '.bnc'. The following describes what to do on Windows systems to
    2426associate the BNC program to such configuration files:
    2527
    26 1. Right-click a file that has the extension '.bnc' and then click 'Open'. If the
    27    'Open' command is not available, click 'Open With' or double-click the file.
    28 2. Windows displays a dialog box that says that the system cannot open this file.
    29    The dialog box offers several options for selecting a program.
    30 3. Click 'Select the program from a list', and then click 'OK'.
    31 4. The 'Open With' dialog box is displayed. Click 'Browse', locate and then click
    32    the BNC program, and then click 'Open'.
    33 5. Click to select the 'Always use the selected program to open this kind of file'
    34    check box.
    35 6. Click 'OK'.
    36 
    37 Some of the presented example configuration files contain a user ID 'Example'
    38 with a password 'Configs' for accessing a few GNSS streams from public Ntrip
     28
     291. Right-click a file that has the extension '.bnc' and then click 'Open'. If
     30   the 'Open' command is not available, click 'Open With' or double-click the
     31   file.
     32
     332. Windows displays a dialog box that says that the system cannot open this
     34   file. The dialog box offers several options for selecting a program.
     35
     363. Click 'Select the program from a list', and then click 'OK'.
     37
     384. The 'Open With' dialog box is displayed. Click 'Browse', locate and then
     39   click the BNC program, and then click 'Open'.
     40
     415. Click to select the 'Always use the selected program to open this kind
     42   of file' check box.
     43
     446. Click 'OK'.
     45
     46Some of the presented example configuration files contain a user ID 'Example'
     47with a password 'Configs' for accessing a few GNSS streams from public Ntrip
    3948Broadcasters. This generic account is arranged for convenience reasons only.
    4049Please be so kind as to replace the generic account details as well as the
    4150place holders 'User' and 'Pass' by the personal user ID and password you
    42 receive following an online registration through

    45 Note that the account for an Ntrip Broadcaster is usually limited to pulling a
    46 specified maximum number of streams at the same time. As running some of the
    47 example configurations requires pulling several streams, it is suggested to
    48 make sure that you don't exceed your account's limits.
    49 
    50 Make also sure that sub-directories 'Input' and 'Output' which are part of the
    51 example configurations exist on your system or adjust the affected example
    52 configuration options according to your needs.
    53 
    54 Some BNC options require antenna phase center variations as made available from
    55 IGS through so-called ANTEX files at ftp://igs.org/pub/station/general. An
    56 example ANTEX file 'igs08.atx' is part of the BNC package for convenience.
    57 
    58 The example configurations assume that no proxy protects your BNC host. Should
    59 a proxy be operated in front of BNC then you need to introduce its IP and port
    60 in the 'Network' tab of the example configurations.
     54Note that the account for an Ntrip Broadcaster is usually limited to
     55pulling a specified maximum number of streams at the same time. As running
     56some of the example configurations requires pulling several streams, it
     57is suggested to make sure that you don't exceed your account's limits.

     64from IGS through so-called ANTEX files at ftp://igs.org/pub/station/general.
     65An example ANTEX file 'igs08.atx' is part of the BNC package for convenience.

     67The example configurations assume that no proxy protects your BNC host.
     68Should a proxy be operated in front of BNC then you need to introduce its
     69name or IP and port number in the 'Network' panel.
    6170
    6271You should be able to run all configuration examples without changing their
    6372options. However, configurations 'Upload.bnc' and 'UploadPPP.bnc' are
    64 exceptions because they require an input stream from a connected GNSS network
    65 engine.
