  • FR24 MLAT software not running after Pi restart

    Hi folks.

    Finally managed to have my Raspberry Pi feeding into FR24 but I have a wee query.

    My Pi2 runs on a Flightaware Dongle and shows the following in the Flightaware statistics - Multilateration (MLAT): Supported / Enabled (synchronized with 145 nearby receivers) but when I look at my FR24 Feeder Status, it shows MLAT running - NO

    In FR24 Feeder Status page, if I click on Restart Software, the MLAT Running changes to YES

    Am I missing a setting somewhere for the MLAT software to automatically start? I've checked the settings page and MLAT is set to YES to participate in MLAT Calculations but not sure if this is the 'switch' to run the software and participate.

    Any assistance greatly appreciated

    Do settings in file fr24feed.ini.

    (1) Open file to Edit
    Code:
    sudo nano /etc/fr24feed.ini
    Following are content of the file fr24feed.ini
    Code:
    receiver="beast-tcp"
    fr24key="xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx"
    host="127.0.0.1:30005"
    bs="no"
    raw="no"
    logmode="1"
    logpath="/var/log/fr24feed"
    mlat="yes"
    mlat-without-gps="yes"

    (2) After making changes in settings (if needed), save file (Ctrl+o) and close (Ctrl+x)

    (3) Restart fr24feed
    Code:
    sudo systemctl restart fr24feed

      Hi.

      This is the contents of my fr24feed.ini file


      Code:
      receiver="AVR (TCP)"
      fr24key="xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx"
      host="172.x.x.x:30002"
      bs="no"
      raw="no"
      logmode="1"
      logpath="/var/log/fr24feed"
      mlat="yes"
      mlat-without-gps="yes"
      System is 'working' as such. Its tracking and uploading. Its just that I have to click on Restart software in order to change MLAT running from NO to YES

      Its as if the FR24feed is starting before the main Flightaware system has fully synchronised with local receivers
