BNC is unable to open serial port

Reported by: mike Owned by: stuerze
Priority: normal Component: BNC
Version: Keywords:


I am using BNC v2.12.18 under Windows 10 64-bit. I have configured it to receive an NTRIP stream containing RTCM3 messages from a local caster, and this appears to be working. I now wish to configure BNC to forward the RTCM3 messages to a serial-connected GNSS receiver.

The GNSS receiver is an embedded module (mini-PCIe form factor) which appears in Windows as a virtual serial port (COM49). I have entered the mountpoint, port name and baud rate on the Serial Output tab, but BNC is consistently unable to open the port.

I have confirmed that the baud rate is correct and that the port exists in Device Manager.

I have confirmed that no other application has opened a connection to the port.

I have attached my BNC config file (with my credentials removed), a log file, and two screenshots.

What am I doing wrong?

It's over a month since I created this ticket. Is this product supported?

Dear Mike,

I'm sorry but this is a very special question, which is difficult to solve from remote.
I have no experiences howto use virtual ports on windows. Maybe this helps:

Best regards, Andrea

Hi Andrea,

Great to hear this issue has been marked as fixed. Is it possible to obtain a Windows binary of the latest build, or do I need to wait for an official release?
