by default it gets the data via UDP from the HUB (i.e via your wifi)
if that is not set then it gets the data from the weather flow server

history data (if you have the switch on in the data logger setup) is from the weatherflow server

I've finally gotten my Weatherflow station setup and testing it with WD.  It seems that I can only get it to work if I set my Weatherflow station to Public, though?  I have the UDP option enabled in cronweather, but as soon as I toggle off the Public option it stops working.  Toggling Public back on returns everything to working.

I can only suggest asking weatherflow about that

Not quite sure I understand your response so I just want to clarify and make sure I follow you....as far as you are aware WD should be able to read via UDP while Public sharing is disabled?

you need to ask weatherflow that Q
that is what I am saying

(I am not sure why anyone would not want the public sharing enabled personally )

I hope it's not too off-topic. I got my WF station. Out of curiosity I've set up a WD (different PC than for my original Davis setup) to check how it works. Two observations:
- The wind data does not get updated every 3 seconds but sometimes it just freezes for e.g. 10 seconds. I've been visually comparing the public link from the WF server to the WD display.
- I can't (don't know) download the history data

I have a latest Mac version of WD trial version. My Mac is in the same Wifi as the WF and I set the WD to read the local UDP (not the web). For getting the history data, I've entered the station ID, restarted WD and tried with a "Data logger" switch Enabled.
It's not a big issue I just wanted to do a side by side test with Davis.

Yes, itís a Mac version. I could try with a Win, if that helps.

I've tried with a Win7 version now and confirm it works nicely!
