  • Ports needing opening?

    Hi all,

    We are trying to get our RaspberryPi working with Flightradar and I have followed all the correct guides but keep getting errors.
    As we are a school we go through a firewalled router.

    Are there any ports needed to be open for fr24 to work?

    Nothing wants to work.

    pi@raspberrypi:~ $ fr24feed-status
    [ ok ] FR24 Feeder/Decoder Process: running.
    [ ok ] FR24 Stats Timestamp: 2020-09-15 09:04:27.
    [FAIL] FR24 Link: unknown ... failed!
    [ ok ] Receiver: connected (1 MSGS/ SYNC).
    [FAIL] FR24 MLAT: not running ... failed!

    The time is also out by an hour if that makes any difference.

    Anyone have any ideas? Thankyou.

    Regarding the time being off by an hour, when you type,


    at a prompt and hit enter is the time zone correct?

    From the FAQ:

    If you are behind a firewall, please allow the following outgoing ports to be opened for the receiver.

    Only outgoing ports required, no incoming.
    80 TCP, 22 TCP, 443 TCP, 19788 UDP/TCP, 8099 UDP/TCP, 53 UDP/TCP
