Wired settings for piaware

I’m trying to set up my piaware for the first time. I flashed the drive and edited the wired settings. My network is on 10.0.0.* not 192.168.0.* So I’m assuming I need to supply the static IP addresses to connect to.

wired-network yes

Wired network configuration:

Most networks will use DHCP

wired-type static

Alternatively, a static address configuration

can be provided; set “wired-type” to static to use this.


I turn on the raspberry pi and wait 5 minutes, then when I try to go to, I get ERR_CONNECTION_TIMED_OUT

On the raspberry pi, I see the red LED light, but the instruction say I should also see a blinking green light (which I do not see).

Any help would be greatly appreciated

What’s the IP of the computer you are trying from?
What is the subnet mask?

Those should be availabe from your Connection details.

The computer I’m trying from is in network. That’s not my public IP though.

From IP config

Oh is it the Pi4?
That one isn’t compatible with the piaware sd-card image yet.

For RPi4 you’ll need to install Raspbian Buster Lite and then install piaware as an add-on https://flightaware.com/adsb/piaware/install

yes it’s a Pi4… ok this explains a lot :slight_smile:

I also recommend @wiedehopf’s two projects (graphs1090 & tar1090), particularly the graphs1090, which is an extremely useful tool.

Great to hear you’ve got it going

You can set it up either way. If you have a DHCP server, Piaware will pickup an IP.
Static obviously works too, just be careful to pick an IP outside the DHCP range.
