I actually need the same solution. However I'm approaching this differently. Can you confirm if my method will work? I am exposing a proxy server externally that will simply route streaming GPS data internally to the input connector of the GeoEvent process. Since this applicaion will only used internal to our network it not required to expose the Stream Service to the outsode world. Its my streaming data is coming from an external source.
