I’m following through an article in the wonderful PC Pro magazine (issue 309). Rather than using a fresh PiAware image, I was hoping to add the necessary parts to my existing RPi 4 (running Buster) to which I’ve already attached a Nooelec Smartee USB antenna. GQRX is working (having stopped the piaware and dump1090-fa services).
I installed piaware, dump1090-fa and the other bits per the guidance at https://uk.flightaware.com/adsb/piaware/install. I was able to connect to FlightAware. It agrees that I’m sending them data. I can also verify this from my Windows PC using a utility I found (view1090.exe).
The only thing I can’t do is see my local map via :8080. Running ‘sudo netstat -tlnp | grep 8080’ returns no result, which I think means there’s nothing available on that port. Running ‘ps -e | grep dump1090’ returns dump1090-fa only.
I don’t want to break the parts that are already working. Any guidance as to what final tweaks might be required for the local web service to work will be much appreciated. Is it a matter of creating or amending a configuration file?
