  • Planeplotter support/ VM on a Windows box that feeds to other services

    I use PlanePlotter to feed data to basically every other network. They haven't pulled the plug on Windows. Anyway, is there some kind of current VM passthrough we can use to send the data to FR? This isn't fair to the other services to force me to dedicate my machine to FR24. I love the service, and have been feeding for years, but this was not the best move.

    Check out this for a starting point

    And the latter stages of this. I managed to get the Rpi version (most recent) going, just trying to work out.. how

    The idea is, Virtual Linux with the feeder. Connecting to existing setup. Same as having a box off to the side doing similar.

      You can't feed FA with planeplotter anymore.

      (Or at least soon you won't be able to)

        Oh yeah, Forgot that ^^

        Never fear, a VM (or a pi) would take care of that too. Is how I'm running

        THis is still semi-relevant

            My Planeplotter setup with a VM running 'Lubuntu' and the FR24 linux feeder has been running 24/7 since the beginning of April with no obvious problems. Lubuntu is a 'lite' version of Ubuntu; the addition of Oracle and the linux VM has not impacted on performance and is low on resource use.

            Interesting glitch on FR24 this morning, airport vehicles have spread and become amphibious. Quite a few spurious tracks for aircraft that have landed already. Can't blame it on Windows feeders :-)
