For each kind of central, a protocol exists.
For an OAS central, Alert is compatible with the version 3 of the protocol.
For an OAP central, Alert is compatible with the version 3 and the version 4 of the protocol.
Alert has 2 drivers to communicate with Ascom central:
- Driver AscomIP
- Driver AscomOAP4
1. Driver AscomIP :
This driver allows the connection to an OAS or OAP central.
It uses the 3 of the protocol (OAS or OAP).
It uses the Ascom component atOAC2.exe for the connection to an OAS central and the component atOAP.exe (from Micromedia) for the connection to an OAP central.
It has sub drivers : OAS simple, OAS interactive, OAP simple et OAP interactive
It only allow the connection to one OAS central and one OAP central.
IP ports uses (by default) :
- Link with an OAS central: the port used is the port 10072 (sending and reception)
- Link with an OAP central: the port used is the port 1321 (sending and reception)
2. Driver AscomOAP4 :
This driver allows only the connection to an OAP central.
It uses the version 4 of the OAP protocol.
It don't use any specific component for the connection to the Ascom central (the link with the central is integrate in the driver).
It allows the connection to many OAP central at the same time with with a notion of main central and a backup central.
It allows the configuration of sub drivers, simple or interactive or both at the same time.
IP ports uses by default:
- Sending : 1322
- Reception : 1337
