"One note on this, prior to starting the netmon and uGCS, edit the vsm-ardupilot.conf to contain the udp connections you have been attempting to use and ensure they are uncommented (remove the # symbol). then do the above, without that uGCS wont be…"
"I having it working, to do this you need to use NetMon or Wirshark or…, connect to solo’s wifi, start uGCS. Run netmon, filter on wifi card, start a capture, wait 5 secs. Stop capture, view udp connections.
In my case the src is 14550,…"
I think for you the better as they are so open source its crazy, They are such a reliable tool with many adaptions of software than can be used with them.

Add these lines to the vsm-adrupilot.conf and restart the VSM:
