I have two Raspberry PI with PiAware install, one is working ok, the other not.
Same USB dongle model.
When I swap the USB dongle between the two Raspberry PI the failure follow one of the dongles, but when I issue a “sudo piaware-status” in a terminal I get this response:
PiAware master process (piaware) is running with pid 595.
PiAware ADS-B client (faup1090) is running with pid 794.
PiAware ADS-B UAT client (faup978) is not running.
PiAware mlat client (fa-mlat-client) is running with pid 834.
Local ADS-B receiver (dump1090-fa) is running with pid 593.
dump1090-fa (pid 593) is listening for connections on port 30005.
no program appears to be listening for connections on port 30978.
faup1090 is connected to the ADS-B receiver.
faup978 is NOT connected to the ADS-B UAT receiver.
piaware is connected to FlightAware.
got ‘couldn’t open socket: connection refused’
dump1090 is producing data on localhost:30005.

So it looks to me that the USB dongle is found and communication is working.
The strange thing is that both dongles works fine when connected to my PC and I use them as SDR, so the dongles is working, bit one is not under linux or driver issue?
