Thanks. Yes tried the same setting on the Radarcape but still not working, there is a problem with my feeding of air squitter it shows my feeder online, but it's not sending any aircraft data. Should I change the   mode=raw External_port=10003

No harm in trying different settings of data type and port. You may finally find the right one by trial & error.

You may try different value of external_host as well.

On Airsquitter Linux air-squitter 5.4.11-1-opz :

(1) Check file /etc/fr24feed.ini to see what data type & port it is using

(2) Issue following commands to find what data type & port Flightaware is using

sudo piaware-config -show receiver-port   

sudo piaware-config -show receiver-host

I tried to look at /etc/fr24feed.ini, but it's blank

sudo piaware-config -show receiver-port  is showing  30005

sudo piaware-config -show receiver-host  showing nothing

I also wanted to mention that I'm feeding to adsbexchange  using this ADS-B Exchange Setup Scripts https://www.adsbexchange.com/forum/threads/help-with-ads-b-exchange-setup-scripts-on-radarcape.637122/

Here is my output for ADS-B Exchange https://pastebin.com/RS0xZSqu

May be FR24 is through Docker??
How did you install fr24feed?



sudo piaware-config -show receiver-port  is showing  30005


Piaware uses Beast format. So at port 3005 Beast format is made available by Airsquitter. Radarbox24 also uses Beast and port 30005


sudo piaware-config -show receiver-host  showing nothing


No output means host is not set. In this case it uses default host which is 127.0.0.1

I also wanted to mention that I'm feeding to adsbexchange  using this ADS-B Exchange Setup Scripts https://www.adsbexchange.com/forum/threads/help-with-ads-b-exchange-setup-scripts-on-radarcape.637122/


cat /etc/default/adsbexchange will show settings

Possibly it may be as follows:

INPUT="IP-OF-AIRSQUITTER:10003" (or 127.0.0.1:10003)
and
INPUT_TYPE="radarcape_gps"

I did not install FR24. It was  integrated with the  Airsquitter

To check if fr24feed is through docker, issue following command

sudo docker container ls -a 

Please see attached screenshot:

Hi, it's now working I changed the port to 10006 and  sudo systemctl restart rbfeeder  and it's now sending but I do see this error Process: 3648 ExecStartPre=/bin/mkdir /var/run/rbfeeder (code=exited, status=1/FAILURE)

This message at restart is normal. It is caused by fact that the folder "/var/run/rbfeeder" was already created at boot. The attempt to create an existing folder results in error message.

Please see screenshot I have attached. This status was after I restarted rbfeeder.

I wanted to thank you agin for all the help. It's feeding just trying to get MLAT setup. I have the mlat-client installed will post output but looking at the sudo nano /etc/rbfeeder.ini  I don't see (latitude) (longitude) or antenna height should I add them in the instructions post at https://forum.radarbox24.com/index.php?topic=101771.msg389571#msg389571

Yes, you have to add your Lat, Lon, and alt in file /etc/rbfeeder.ini under [client] as I have shown in the post yo have linked.

After adding Lat, Lon, Alt and saving the file, restart rbfeeder by sudo systemctl restart rbfeeder.

After restart, check status by command sudo systemctl status rbfeeder. You should see  3rd line (starting with /usr/bin/python3.9) under CGroup :

Code: [Select]
     CGroup: /system.slice/rbfeeder.service
             ├─592 /usr/bin/rbfeeder
             └─674 /usr/bin/python3.9 /usr/bin/mlat-client --input-type dump1090 --input-connect 127.0.0.1:32457 --server mlat1.rb24.com:4>

Mlat-client is started and kept running by rbfeeder when you add Lat, Lon, and Alt to file rbfeeder.ini. Since you have not done this, the mlat-claient is starting and then stopping.

Thank you. I do see it now, and it's showing MLAT active (No stations synced) radarbox.com
