Can you shoot the RDS data from Digilink over the internet to the transmitter directly?

My experiance is with Nexgen and not Digilink, but I have an output in Nexgen with an IP address:port. I send artist and title information to the IP address of my router at the transmitter and the port my VS2500 is on via port forwarding in the router. It works fine.

It may be something you need to talk to the Arrakis folks about.

Here is my situation and we are having a heck of a time getting this to work.

1) automation system = arrakis digilink hd software software does generate rds text files and serial data
2) barix instream and exstreamer being used as stl (not stl firmware)
3) nautel vs300 fm transmitter

Transmitter is not on site but internet at both sites.

So here is the big question....
Easiest / fastest / safest way to get the RDS between the two sites.

We have attempted to get the barix units to work and that has continued to fail. The documents are just terrible and doesn't give good detail.

We tried a virtual serial port to both transmitter and to the Barix unit. Barix seems to be able to connect to the virtual port however not vice versa.

Is there a way to send the xml from automation to the transmitter or even to get serial data to that remote site.

We can't be the only small station trying to do this....
