piaware connected, but not...


#1

Hi! So after 93 days I suddenly am disconnected from FA. I see I’m connected:

PiAware master process (piaware) is running with pid 542.
PiAware ADS-B client (faup1090) is running with pid 875.
PiAware mlat client (fa-mlat-client) is running with pid 864.
Local ADS-B receiver (dump1090-mutabi) is running with pid 464.

dump1090-mutabi (pid 464) is listening for connections on port 30005.
faup1090 is connected to the ADS-B receiver.
piaware is connected to FlightAware.

dump1090 is producing data on localhost:30005.

but, flightaware says this:

User last online: an hour ago

and the piaware, flighaware boxes are red with only MLAT green.

The log file seems fine with entries showing its sending data…

Any ideas?

S.

You are one of a handful of users that have more than one feeder with the same feeder ID (I am guessing you cloned the sdcard or something similar to cause this).

That feeder ID was assigned to site 36852 and the other site 37082 had a new feeder ID assigned. So currently both of your feeders are trying to feed site 36852.

To fix this, on the feeder that should be feeding site 37082, run



piaware-config feeder-id ID


where ID is the long “Unique Identifier” starting with 898e shown on flightaware.com/adsb/stats/user … tats-37082
Then restart piaware.

Awesome! thanks - I just reset the ID, and I’ll see if it fixes it!

Thanks a ton!

pi@BayLake-FR24-FA:~ $ sudo piaware-config feeder-id 37082
feeder-id is unchanged

You need to configure the long 32-digit-and-dashes “Unique Identifier” starting with 898e shown on the righthand side of the stats page (next to MAC address, local IP, etc), not the site number.

Use the “Unique identifier” inside red rectangle in screenshot below.
(Format xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx)

Note: In the screenshot below, I have crossed out part of my I’d for privacy reasons.

Ah, dang it! I forgot about that! Thanks!
