How to connect?

Post by chpal » Sun Jan 13, 2019 8:24 pm

Hi,
I have a vantage Pro2 plus where I have a Weatherlink IP logger connected to the console and then I run Weatherlink on a PC. Now a neighbor has offered me to buy a Meteobridge Pro (red) at a good price because he moves. I think it sounds interesting but how should I preferably connect it all? Should I connect MB to Pro2 with rf and let the console download from MB or should I connect MB via IP and fetch from the console?
Are there any other great tips and ideas that I should consider if I buy the MB?

Regardless of the method you decide MB requires an IP

Basically 3 options to connect
1. Direct RF to your ISS but this option depends on distance involved but gives you basically 2 independent system from 1 ISS
2. Console set to re-transmit and MB via RF
3. Via network with MBPro reading through the WLIP

All options basically provides the same end result with WLIP to WeatherLink.com and MBPro to anywhere, the actual method comes down in some ways to your system, Console/ISS separation, network infrastructure, location of MBPro to Console etc
