Flight stick without internet
« on: June 09, 2022, 10:36:33 AM »
Hi all,

I'm looking to use my flight stick (green) with a Radarbox antenna, plugged into a windows tablet without internet connection. I'm able to track when disconnecting the internet but only after the initial connection to the server. Is there anyway of bypassing the connection to server? or another way around this issue?

Thanks.

I presume that you are using the V6 software.  The internet connection is only required for the first use, after that internet is not required.  I use it that way when visiting airports

Thanks for the reply. Yes I'm using V6. Is there something you must do once you initially log in for it to function that way? Whenever I load the program up it requires a connection to the server. I can't find anyway to bypass this .

Not that I am aware of as it has always worked this way since I got my original Radarbox in 2010.  However I use the log in details that I had for my original Radarbox and I suspect that you may use Radarbox24 log in details which may make the difference.

I can only suggest that you contact [email protected] for advice

Support say it's not possible which conflicts to some things I've seen on the forums. Yes I'm using my radarbox 24 login. How do I go about getting a radarbox receiver username/password.

Dean

It came with the original box so unless you have one you will not be able to get one

With AirNav RadarBox V6 software, I login with the ID I obtained using RB24's Windows Data Sharer 1.2.

The above software is only data sharer. The source of data is receiver-decoder software ADSB# + DVB-T dongle plugged into Windows computer.

Downloaded the Windows RB24 Data Sharer application installer from following link.
http://www.airnavsystems.com/download/rb24/RB24DataShare120Setup.exe

Download ADSB#
https://www.dropbox.com/s/1pz4t1w73yfslp2/adsbsharp.zip?dl=1

EDIT:
By mistake I have mentioned I used ADSB# as receiver-Decoder. I now recalled that I used alternatively dump1090_win32, ModeSDeco2 and RTL1090.
The data format of ADSB# is different from what is required by RB24 feeder

ModeSDeco2
https://github.com/abcd567a/mm2/releases/download/v1/modesdeco2_windows_20180429.zip

Unzip downloaded file and double click file "modesdeco2.bat" to run th modesdeco2. You will need to open the file "modesdeco2.bat" in Notepad and edit the configuration, as you will have to delete parameters for database etc.

RTL1090
https://www.jetvision.de/manuals/rtl1090.beta3.zip

Instructions: https://rtl1090.com/


DUMP1090_WIN32
https://github.com/MalcolmRobb/dump1090/archive/refs/heads/master.zip

Above link will down load file "dump1090-master.zip". Unzip downloaded zip file. Inside you will find another zip file "dump1090-win.1.10.3010.14.zip". Unzip it. In the unzipped folder double click file "dump1090.bat" to run dump1090. You will need to open the file dump1090.bat in Notepad and edit the configuration, as you will have to delete parameters for database etc.

abcd, does that allow you to operate the software without an internet connection as Dean is looking for?

Yes, I login with email and password for EXTSHA000184 on AirNav Radarbox V6 software with internet connected. Once V6 starts, I disconnect internet and it keeps on running.

Please see screenshot of my Desktop below after I disabled Ethernet & WiFi both (Click to enlarge, then scroll right to see in full)
