The FAQ at flightaware.com/adsb/faq#datafeed says that:
FlightFeeder and PiAware devices running FlightFeeder 7.9.1 or PiAware 3.6.2 or newer software also support port 1501 for Firehose-format JSON data:
I have a flightfeeder running version 7.11.0~bpo8+1, but I don’t see how I can do this step, since I don’t have SSH access as these are managed by FlightAware:
- This feature must be enabled first by adding “enable-firehose yes” in the piaware-config.txt or flightfeeder-config.txt file respectively (or on a PiAware by running the command “piaware-config enable-firehose yes”) and then rebooting/restarting the device.
What am I missing?
(the reason I specifically want the local firehose data, btw, is to track flights whose data is blocked from the public FA but which I see on my local display (generally MLAT))
