Help Needed with RF-V8

hss6 years ago

Hi Anton:

I need your help again.

I am trying to add a new gps tracker into my server. The model is Reachfar RF-V8.

I have programmed the APN, IP and PORT of the tracker with the following SMS command:

apn,internet,pip,109.235.68.55,pport,5005,plmn,tcp#

And gets new data on my server log:

What can I do next to identify my tracker's protocol?

None of those messages are from your tracking device. They are all from your browser. I guess you were checked if the port is open or something.

Hi Anton

My Server is a Linux VPS with fixed IP address and no firewall in use, so all ports are open.

Do you know which port must use the Reachfar RF-V16 tracker in Traccar?

Do you know which port must use the Reachfar RF-V8 tracker in Traccar?

Have you had some experience working with this devices?

Regards,

Carlos

You can try ports from the following page:

https://www.traccar.org/ports-for-tk-gt-and-other-gps-devices/

Even if you are using wrong port, you should see HEX messages in the log.

Hi Carlos,
Did you find a protocol for the RF-V8 device?

Thanks

How can I contact you?

Hi, my email is casoft@gmail.com

I bought 2 RF-V8 trackers from Reachfar.

Eventually I managed to get them working on traccar with this command by SMS:

1st set you're control phone-number

then: ip,x.x.x.x,port,5013,plmn,tcp#

Toni Hälikkä5 years ago

Could someone tell how to set the apn, ip and port correctly to get RF-V8s to work in Traccar server?
I have tried with these commands (both gives "APN set succesfully") but I can't get any HEX values to traccar log. And I cannot see the device online.

apn,internet,pip,123.123.123.123,pport,5013,plmn,tcp#
apn,internet,pip,somedomain.com,pport,5013,plmn,udp#

Someone please help, what is the correct fromat?

I have also set the sos1 phone number correctly.

Sathopper5 years ago

Did you try my solution?

1st set you're control phone-number

then: ip,x.x.x.x,port,5013,plmn,tcp#

Device should reply with IP:x.x.x.x;PORT:5013;OK!

Toni Hälikkä5 years ago

It says "incorrect instruction format" if I send sms command: ip,123.123.123.123,port,5013,plmn,tcp#

Toni Hälikkä5 years ago

Notice that I have RF-V8S device.

Geen Idee3 years ago

For what it's worth. I've succesfully fixed the own server on the RF-V8S with the following command:
ip,xx.xx.xx.xx,port,xxxx#

example : ip,10.0.0.1,port,5023#
Hopefully it will be helpful to others.

For info of the other users, the protocol for my Reachfar RF-V20 is h02:

    <entry key='h02.port'>5013</entry>

Guess probably most of their other products would be using the h02 protocol.
