External 1090 source


#1

Hi all -

I’m experimenting with using an OpenWRT box as my radio front end for dump1090. Does anyone know if I can configure PiAware to source its packets from something other than localhost? Looked around the config files and didn’t see any mention…

Thanks in advance!

With a piaware sdcard image:

piaware-config receiver-type relay
piaware-config receiver-host (whatever)
piaware-config receiver-port (whatever)

It expect Beast binary format data on the given host/port and will relay it locally to skyview / piaware / mlat-client.

With package-based piaware installs, use receiver-type other (the ‘relay’ bits are only present on sdcard images)

Awesome! I’ll give this a shot. Impressed by the quick response - many thanks.
