The PstRotator program can now accept Az/El data from Gpredict.
PstRotator is a program for antenna rotators control, and can be downloaded from
http://www.qsl.net/yo3dmu/index_Page346.htm

Gpredict (Windows version) can be downloaded from
http://sourceforge.net/projects/gpredict/files/Gpredict/

The communication between programs is TCP/IP, so the programs can run on the same PC, or on different PCs in a network.

PstRotator settings: select Gpredict as Tracker, and set the Tracking mode. The default IP port is 4533, but can be changed from "Setup/Trackers Setup/Gpredict Setup...".

Gpredict settings: "Edit/Preferences/Interfaces/Rotators". Add a rotator and set "localhost" to Host if the programs run on the same computer, or the computer IP where the PstRotator is running if this is not on the same PC.

Go to "Module options / Shortcuts" (you can find it to the up & right corner of the main Gpredict window) and open the "Antenna Control" window. Press the "Engage" button to connect Gpredict to PstRotator.
For satellites tracking select a satellite in view and press the "Track" button.
