For normal use all you need to do is apply power. You don't need to
connect a computer at all. The t-bolt will figure out it's location
and be up and running in maybe an hour.
LH is for the "next step" where you care about fine running. Now it's
maybe better to just let it run
Sounds like you might have a marginal antenna. It really does need a
good view of the sky and the self survey is not useful if the antenna
can move, so at least duct tape it down. A mast is better.
Have to read the "Thunderbolt book"
the monitor program at the above link is less complex and a good way
to get started.
Now, to hijack this thread. Do people think a "server" version of
LH that does NOT need Windows would be usefull. Sames a water to have
to find a Windows PC just for this one task. The server could run on
a very low-power computer and push data onto the network. For
example I have the t-bolt running an NTP server and I'd like to run
the LH server on the same computer
