Management and Monitoring User Interface of the     EUREF NTRIP Broadcaster operated by the Royal Observatory of Belgium.

User Registration

Procedure

Complete the user registration form (accessible through the link in the bottom of this page) to get access to real-time GNSS data. Each new registration request is processed manually during the normal working hours. We are doing our best to provide you access as quickly as possible, but note that holiday periods might also result in delay in answering your request.

Registration is meant for a single user only. If your group is composed of several users needing access, please register each individual separately. Keep the password safe and for yourself.

Privacy Policy

When registering on our broadcaster, we will ask you to provide the some mandatory information such as your name, email, chosen username, hash (encrypted version) of your chosen password, your affiliation (if any), country, and application for which you ask access to the streams.

We use your name and email solely to notify you about the activation/deactivation of your account. The information provided on the usage of the streams is used to generate anonymized statistics.

We don't store your password, but only record an encrypted version of it, i.e. the hash of your password.

Info: To calculate the hash of the password that you have choosen, you can
  • use the 'openssl passwd -crypt your_pw_in_clear' command (without quotes) or
  • you can use this wizzard (a new window/tab will be opened).

You can optionally register to

  • receive broadcaster status notification emails
  • be included in the publicly available list of users displayed on the home page of this web site

Your account information will be kept as long as your account is active on our broadcaster. Contact us at rob_caster@oma.be for editing or removing any of your personal data or for cancelling your account and be removed from our data base.

Streams

Each registered used will get by default simultaneous access to 5 streams. If you need access to more simultaneous streams, indicate this in the remarks field of the registration form. Access to more streams is not guaranteed and will strongly depend on the existing load on our broadcaster. Note that you cannot upload your streams to our caster with the credential obtained by the registration below.

NTRIP over HTTP/HTTPS and Ports

The broadcaster is configured to serve NTRIP on over (insecure) HTTP connection on port 2101 and over (secure, SSL) HTTPS connection on port 2102. We strongly recommend to connect to our broadcaster over HTTPS (using SSL) as otherwise your password will be sent over the network in plain text (i.e. readable by anyone). Consult the manual of your client to find out how to configure your client to use SSL.

Info: The SSL certificate for the ROB broadcaster can be found here.

Support

As a final notice, given the variety of software and receivers able to connect to our broadcaster, it is impossible for us to provide you support for your specific configuration/application (client side). We can only provide you the support related to your access registration on our caster (server side).
