I am creating C# code for a server program that receives data from a Concox TR06 GPS tracker via TCP:
When first starting up, the tracker sends a login message, which needs to be acknowledged before it will send any position data. My first problem is that, according to the documentation, the acknowledge message is 18 bytes long, yet the example they provide is only 10 bytes long:
P.s. in the table above, the "bits" column I'm pretty sure should be labelled "bytes" instead...
Now, my main problem is in calculating the Error Check. According to the documentation:
The check code is generated by the CRC-ITU checking method. The check codes of data in the structure of the protocol, from the Packet Length to the Information Serial Number (including "Packet Length" and "Information Serial Number"), are values of CRC-ITU.
Ok, so in the above example, I need to calculate CRC on 0x05 0x01 0x00 0x01
Now, I'm guessing it's 16 bit CRC, as according to the diagram above, the CRC is 2 bytes long. I've implemented two different CRC implementations I found online at http://www.sanity-free.org/134/standard_crc_16_in_csharp.html and http://www.sanity-free.org/133/crc_16_ccitt_in_csharp.html but neither give me the answer that, according to the diagram above I am supposed to be getting - 0xD9 0xDC. I've even used this site - https://www.lammertbies.nl/comm/info/crc-calculation.html - to manually enter the 4 bytes, but nothing gives me the result I'm supposed to be getting according to the diagram above...
Any ideas where I might be going wrong? Any pointers/hints would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
