How to Begin

Top   SNIP Knowledge Base

Send your Base Station Data to SNIP as outlined below.

You will see your data stream in the Caster Table after the connection is made (click for the Caster table). After about 200 seconds SNIP will fill in any missing meta data details if you are sending in RTCM3 data.

If you do not see your data stream, look at the current status report (here) or at this article, for hints for what might be wrong.

You do not have to own a Base Station to use the RTK2go data in your rover device(s).  Any NTRIP Client can connect to any Base.  Please enter a valid eMail address for the user name (which we will only use if your connection is having a problem).  No password is needed, that field can be left empty. If your software required an entry, use none.

Note:  If you enter a valid email as the user name (i.e. then the SNIP caster will be able to send you limited email reports about what went wrong when your connection attempt does not work. This can be very helpful for quick self debugging uses and is unique to SNIP® NTRIP Casters.  We will not use your email for any other purposes.

  1. Forward the local RTK data stream of interest to using SNIPRTKLIB,
    or any  NTRIP Server or a relay tool (many GNSS devices include a built-in NTRIP Server function).

    • If your GNSS device does not provide this ability, use a Lite copy of SNIP with the correct data stream type to forward it (PUSH-Out) for you.
    • Here are the current connection details.
    • Please pick a mountPt name for your stream as part of your connection details.
  2. Connect as many rover devices to as you need from the internet using your favorite NTRIP Client tools.
  3. Enjoy RTK and centimeter level precision.

If you are new to RTK corrections being transmitted by NTRIP over the internet, you may want to learn about our flagship product SNIP, a robust NTRIP Caster.  You can use SNIP to create your own a network of RTK corrections. If you need an NTRIP Caster, you will find SNIP to be the best solution available.

Also, the open caster for community use which is maintained at (at port 2101) is used for client engagements and we do not allow new data streams to be added to it.   Please use for that.  If you need your own Caster, or wish us to manage your own Caster, or just need to send data to a secure Caster, please look here for various options.
