    Yes, the file is still in my dropbox and you can download it to your Pi by wget command.

    This file is for Jessie. Most people have already switched to Stretch. Are you still using Jessie?

    hi abcd567

    I became lost following the discussions above between the ADSB and MLAT ports ... hoping you can explain it bit further.

    My test setup is now Stretch and dump1090-mut v1.15dev and only the FR24 feed. The fr24feed.ini is:

    receiver="avr-tcp"
    fr24key="x"
    host="127.0.0.1:30002"
    bs="no"
    raw="no"
    logmode="0"
    procargs="--net--gain 40"
    windowmode="0"
    logpath="/var/log"
    mpx="no"
    mlat="yes"
    mlat-without-gps="yes"

    I created mm2.sh in /usr/share/mm2 and simply changed /home/pi to /usr/share in both Step 6 and Step 9.
    ( You might like to make a comment in your post about where to create the mm2 folder and then match the paths given in mm2.sh and rc.local to assist others ).

    Then after reading and digesting the discussion above about which ports to use - I changed the ADS-B port in line 2 to 30002 and deleted line 3 --inConnectId 127.0.0.1:30105:MLAT \
    I also noted that this was written as 30105 in one step and 30103 in another.

    And I have it working.

    To help my understanding - is there another port I can turn on to obtain the MLAT feed and reinstate the deleted line 3 ?

    Any other hints, advice and suggestions ?

    Thanks

    Flightaware MLAT feedback results are available on two ports of dump1090-mutability/dump109p-fa: 30105 and 30106. The data formats are different, but both work OK for modeSMixer2. You can use any one of these.

    For FA mlat results feedback, using port 30103 is wrong. Dont use 30103.
