IDX evaluation form.

Not sure if this is the right place to ask but I am trying to confirm it is known whether the transparent tech IDX addon is compatible with the http://realtyserver.com/ idx/rets system. I atempted to use the evaluation form but it seems to crash when you submit it.

That looks like a RETS feed and not an IDX FTP feed, so, no, the IDXManager add-on is not what you would want to use, and that's what their evaluation form is for specifically.

The TransparentRETS add-on would be what you would use assuming the RETS server you would be connecting to is fully RETS compliant.

You can open a TRETS sales ticket at Transparent Tech for any questions.

The TRETS FAQ is here, and has a lot of info: http://www.transparent-realestate.com/rets_faq.html

Its an IDX feed as well they have given me access to an ftp with the csv files for listings, agents etc and photos. But thank you I'll contact support maybe RETS would be better and easier to setup.

If you have an equal choice, RETS is usually the better way to go. Your final results often boil down to how competent the server vendor/operators are, and in the case of RETS if they adhere to the RETS specification entirely. Only U.S. vendors who want to use/advertise the term "RETS" are under any obligation to follow the standard however, and some of them still don't completely because RETS certification and compliance enforcement has become so lax it's almost non-existent.
