Raspberry Pi/FlightStick sharing question?
« on: October 12, 2020, 06:23:14 PM »
Hi there,

I have an RPi running Pi-hole and a spare one sitting in its box which I might pressgang into service as a feeder.

I notice from reading posts on this subject that to start feeding you need to 'Claim' your Sharing key;

Our system works by using a sharing key. This key identifies your station and is present in the packets that are sent to our servers. When you first run our software on your raspberry pi, your sharing key is automatically created and is saved in a configuration file. If you already have a sharing key from a previous installation, you can change the configuration file and save it with your key. That way you won't lose your sharing history. Each installation should have a unique sharing key.

Now I did feed RB24 for a few days with my old RadarBox and wondered if I could link the RPi/FlightStick to this same account or whether I would have to start over again?

Also is it possible to use the latest RadarBox v6.02.003 to connect to the RPi by IP address and view the contacts I can 'see' from my location just as if I was connected via USB to my RadarBox?

Thats always been the main interest for me as I'm not much interested in viewing network flights although I would like to participate in feeding it.

Thanks & kind regards,

Runway 31

I know nothing of Pi's but as far as I am aware you can run V6.00.03 with your Pi using the method you detail.  You can have a number of receivers with your account, no idea how you do it but support can advise.
