SSL/TLS and NGS CORS: Another Potential Workaround

For those Trimble Positions Desktop customers unable to upgrade to 10.6.1.1, or for those GPS Pathfinder Office customers for which the previously described workarounds aren’t actually working, one of our astute dealers reminded us of another solution.

NGS CORS still provides FTP access to base station files. By making a copy of the desired base station in our list (use the ‘Copy…’ button at the bottom of the list screen), you can edit the ‘Internet Server’ properties to provide different URL templates and then save it as a “user-defined” base station (the default behavior when you click ‘OK’ after editing the URL template strings):

Base File Address Format (24 hour data):
ftp://www.ngs.noaa.gov/cors/rinex/%YYYY%/%DDDDD%/%cccc%/%cccc%%DDDDD%0.%yy%d.Z


Nav File Address Format (24 hour data):
ftp://www.ngs.noaa.gov/cors/rinex/%YYYY%/%DDDDD%/%cccc%/%cccc%%DDDDD%0.%yy%S


Base File Address Format (1 hour data; check FTP site to see if available)
ftp://www.ngs.noaa.gov/cors/rinex/%YYYY%/%DDDDD%/%cccc%/%cccc%%DDDDD%%HrAsLetter%.%yy%o.gz


Nav File Address Format (1 hour data; check FTP site to see if available)
