    RPi + SBS-3

    Hi,

    Since yesterday, I'm trying to run a new Raspberry Pi (model 3) together with an SBS-3 station over Ethernet. The station seems to be connecting OK, but no aircraft seem to be received by the station when I connect to localhost:8754.
    Also, when I monitor the currently active processes, dump1090 does not seem to be running. I reckon dump1090 should be running, or am I wrong here?
    When I run the fr24feed command "sudo fr24feed start", after a while, I get a loop of these messages:
    Code:
    2016-04-11 16:22:57 | [feed][n]ping 6
    2016-04-11 16:22:58 | [feed][n]syncing stream: 1

    This makes me think that the RPi connects from time to time, and then the connection drops. Is this presumption correct? If so, is there anything I can do about it?

    Mainly, my two problems are the connection seemingly dropping out, and (I think) dump1090 not running.

    Thanks,
    Thomas

    Dump1090 OS only called for certain extent receiver types.

    Can you try and adjust the port num to 30006 for me and test... That is meant to be the unencrypted SBS output

    Thanks for that suggestion. I haven't had the time to try it just yet, but I will be doing so tonight.
    I'll let you know if and how it works.

    Are you running Basestation software that might be accessing the receiver? If yes then what Oblivian suggested but use the IP of the computer on which Basestation is running.

    Hi all,

    I have similar problem...

    As far as i can see i'm connected to the FR24 server, but i get following in my "fr24feed status"...

    ...
    [reader][i] connecting to sbs3 receiver on 192.168.1.170:10001
    [reader][e] could not connect to 192.168.1.170
    [reader][i] connecting to sbs3 receiver on 192.168.1.170:10001
    [reader][e] could not connect to 192.168.1.170
    ...



    My SBS3 has the IP of 192.168.1.170, so that’s correct

    Are you running Basestation software on your computer that is getting data from the same IP and port? If yes then try shutting it down and see if FR24 works.

    Hi Khan,

    I don't use Basestation...
    Only FR24feed.

    Thanks for the suggestions!
    I'm trying to get my SBS-3 to feed to FR24 without using Basestation too. Is this even possible?
    Would it be a good idea to try and connect the SBS-3 to the RPi via USB, or does a network connection offer a higher succes rate?

    EDIT:
    Now I'm facing another problem, for some reason fr24feed shuts down again within a second of being started. I would post the log, but I don't think it would be of much use. It just shows the program starting, and without actually showing an error, shutting down again. (Problem solved, I think, after a reboot of the RPi.)

    KriVa,

    Are you also in EBAW area.
    Speaking dutch?

    I used to work previous with RPi and SBS3 via LAN.
    Without using Basestation.

    In previous Feed version i used BS to see if there was feeding...

    Ken:

    Affirm, I live very close to EBAW, and do speak Dutch. If you managed to get it to work without using Basestation permanently, that shows that at least it should be possible. I'll try some more tinkering tonight.
    Once again, thanks for all suggestions. I'll let you know how I get on.

    I have tried three different ports now: 10001, 30003, 30006.

    Just to make sure, what I want to do is run the SBS-3 + RPi 3 combination without having a computer running with Basestation. In essence, I only want the SBS-3 and the RPi to be active.
    When I try to connect to the SBS-3, I get this in the log (with all three different port numbers):
    Code:
    2016-04-16 21:34:23 | [reader][i]Connecting to SBS3 receiver on 192.168.1.140:30006
