Network Mode?
« on: September 15, 2023, 06:19:02 AM »
Question about the configuration file option of network_mode=true. Does that allow me to have say, a piaware install with the sdr attached to it & running and a rbfeeder setup on another pi on the network, getting that data from that ip address and port of the piaware dump?  Is that what the mode, external host and external port settings are for?  Every setup I read about is on the same pi.  But those options lead me to believe that they can be two different units.  It makes me think I can have one pi setup with the radios, and another pi on the network getting that data from it and just feeding it to AirNav with rbfeeder.

With network_mode=true, both the following methods are possible

Case 1:
If the rbfeeder AND decoder (dump1090-fa OR dump1090-mutability, OR readsb) are on SAME RPi

[network]
mode=beast
external_port=30005
external_host=127.0.0.1

Case 2:
If the rbfeeder is on one RPi, and decoder (dump1090-fa OR dump1090-mutability, OR readsb) is on another RPi (but both RPi are on same local network), and assuming Local IP of RPi with dump1090 is 192.168.0.21

[network]
mode=beast
external_port=30005
external_host=192.168.0.21
