abcd567, could you please advise me: i have dump1090-fa installed. Also piaware. I start each one in its own terminal window, because at this point i haven’t written a shell script to start them both.
With my new FlightAware Pro Stick attached, dump1090-fa outputs a steady stream of data to the screen.
In the other terminal window, where i started piaware, it starts up and i get messages including:
couldn’t reopen piaware.log (permission denied).
TLS handshake with adept server at piaware.flightaware.com/1200 completed
certificate validated… logged in as orrinwinton… feeder ID… then:
failed to update feeder ID file at /var/cache/piaware/feeder_id: couldn’t open “/var/cache/piaware/feeder_id.new”: permission denied
dump1090-fa listening on port 30005, so far so good
starting faup1090: /usr/lib/piaware/helpers/faup1090 --net-bo-ipaddr localhost --net-bo-port 30005 --stdout
started faup1090 (pid 10068) to connect to dump1090-fa
Then 30 sec later: 0 mesgs rec’d from dump1090-fa; 0 mesgs sent to FlightAware. Five minutes later, same message.
Above, i only wrote down the gist of the messages it was giving me.
I think i’m almost there. Btw the FlightAware Pro dongle at least doubled the number of packets i was receiving (using Avare android software) and extended my range out to 120 miles vs the old 50+ miles. (Indoor antenna.) I may get the FA antenna on Amazon – what is that, a collinear?
Thanks for any help.
