VRS and PiAware

Post by kappy1 » Mon May 02, 2016 5:05 am

I am running VRS on a windows machine and am able to receive data from my PiAware on port 30005.
How do I receive the MLAT data coming in from FlightAware. I tried connected to the Pi on port 30104 and it connects but do not receive any data.
Do I have to configure dump1090 on the Pi in order to get the MLAT data?

I get mlat data in VRS from PiAware, using port 30106

I followed the instructions here: http://discussions.flightaware.com/ads- ... 36086.html and it works great.

I got this response on the FlightAware forum...

Ports:
30002 for non-mlat data in AVR format
30003 for non-mlat data in Basestation format
30005 for non-mlat data in Beast format
30105 for mlat data in Beast format
30106 for mlat data in Basestation-like format
