Piaware 4 not able to feed Radarbox and Piaware at same time

Hi,
After a while I’ve realized that when feeding piaware, rbfeeder do not connect and if I’m feeding rbfeeder, piaware do not connect. It seems that, when I start my Raspberry pi 4, one of those starts first and, remains, blocking the other one. Fr24feed works normaly.
Any clue ?
Thanks

please share the logs for both applications and what exactly happens once you start the services with
sudo systemctl restart piaware
sudo systemctl restart rbfeeder

(one after each other and vice versa and checking the status with journalctl)

Without that detail it’s a mission impossible to check the issue

As mentioned earlier you need to configure rbfeed in network mode.

Just run this:
Automatic installation for dump1090 fa · wiedehopf/adsb-scripts Wiki · GitHub

It will fix your configuration.

I’m outside now. When back home I’ll make a trial.
Thanks

This is caused by two dump1090 running (dump1090-fa and integral dump1090 of RB24 feeder). The one which grabs the dongle works, other fails.

To remedy this, block internal dump1090 of RB24 from starting by following method. When running in network mode (network_mode=true), the RB24 feeder will not start its dump1090, and instead use data from dump1090-fa

sudo nano /etc/rbfeeder.ini 

Above command will open the config file

Most likely in this file you have:

[client]
network_mode=false

Change it to:

[client]
network_mode=true

After saving above changes, reboot RPi. All should be ok now.
