Not connected to FlightAware


#1

Today I haven’t been able to connect my PiAware to FlightAware.

My ADS-B page says:

  1. Anomaly report for PiAware feeder with a MAC address of b8:27:eb:6c:4e:20:
    This feeder last checked in several hours ago.

  2. My STATUS page:

Radio: Received Mode S data recently
PiAware: Piaware 3.1.0 is running
FilghtAware: Not connected to FlightAware
MLAT: Multilateration is not enabled

My FlighAware dump1090 is showing ADS-B aircraft on the map however, the STATUS page says “PiAware doesn’t seem to be running”

Help appreciated

Apparently, it was something with piaware-config.txt’s “wired-address” It was set as 192.168.1.255 and the original was 192.168.1.10. I copied the original to the SD Card, rebooted and it immediately communicated with FlightAware.

I have to change some lines but, I’ll do it “one step at a time”

Yeah, that’s not going to work.

I’d just use DHCP if you can.
