How does one get the , “Sky View” map to display ??

All the hardware and software work perfect … I am on , "Wired " , internet , not wireless…

Any and all help , that you can give me on how to active the , “Sky View” , would be much appreciated …

Thank You ,

Darryl

if I understood right that is nothing new, as is simply as going to your site adsb ip address port 8080
ex: 192.168.xxx.xxx:8080
let me know if you need something else.

Be sure to clear your browser’s cache in order to activate Skyview.

If you aren’t sure what the IP address is for the Pi there should be a link to the SkyView page directly from your Flight aware stat page. It says “Web Interface: View Live Data”. You have to be on the local network to see the SkyView. I just set up a VPN so I can see my SkyView remotely now.

Much appreciated!

I like the map view but would like to see it via the hdmi port on the raspberry pi. I understand this is a web browser app, but the PiAware image doesn’t load a GUI to launch a browser from. Anyone know how to make it do that?

As Piaware image is built using Jessie Lite image (stripped down), the method shown on these pages for Raspbian Lite & Jessie Lite may also work for Piaware image also.

I have NOT tried these, so cannot tell anything with surety.

On this page someone has suggested:



sudo apt-get install raspberrypi-ui-mods

The method using Local_IP_NUMBER:8080 works from outside the internal network if the port 8080 is added to the router’s forwarding rules, to redirect incoming packets to the Local_IP number.
The IP is replaced with the Internet (external) IP: External_IP_NUMBER:8080

PS: FA_IP_NUMBER/dump1090-fa/ shows the same page when inside the network.

a method working for me (install LXDE desktop - lightweight) as follows:


 sudo apt-get install -y xinit 
sudo apt-get install -y lxde-core lxterminal lxappearance
sudo apt-get install -y lightdm
sudo apt-get install -y midori

after all installations complete run sudo raspi-config and select 3 Boot Options.
in boot options select B1 Desktop / CLI .
in the new tab select B4 Desktop Autologin Desktop GUI

reboot and now the LXDE desktop will appear on your HDMI monitor.
run Midori (web browser) and try the url 127.0.0.1:80 or 8080 or dump1090-fa, to view the map.

Greetings,
Can somebody help me in configuring my router so that i can view FlightFeeder Skyview map from outside of my local network, like on my cellphone when i am not at home. I am very new to this and i tried port forwarding in my router with following settings but it didn’t work.
SERVICE PORT: 8080
INTERNAL PORT: 8080
IP ADDRESS: 192.168.0.100 (FLIGHTFEEDER’s IP)
STATUS: ENABLED

I tried on my cellphone by typing my ISP IP address (183.82.66.77:8080) but it didn’t work. I have TP-Link router and FlightFeeder 7.7.1.

Thanks
