Title: Raspberry Pi3
Post by: anorak on September 11, 2016, 09:21:45 am
Can RadarBox be fed through a Raspberry and if so;
A) is there any special set up
B) can it be sent with an other programme running over the internet at the same time
words of 1 syllable please, it is Sunday.
Thanks, Dave?

Can RadarBox be fed through RPi3: Unfortunately for AirnavSystems: No.

Only possible solution I know: PP can be fed by RPi/dump1090 setup. PP can feed Radarbox Network. Problem: power consuming WIN PC running PP would be needed.

I have installed RB24 data feeder on Windows Desktop. It gets data from VRS also running on my Windows Desktop. The VRS gets data from Raspberry Pi. My desktop does not run 24/7, while Ras Pi are running 24/7.

In January 2016, I requested support to make available a data feeder client for Linux/Raspbian so that I can feed directly from Pi without need to run the windows desktop. They promised, but it is not yet available.

I feed adsbexchange.com directly from Ras Pi using a script. I therefore tried to feed RB24 using similar script. The adsbexchange does not require login, but RB24 does require login. I therefore added a curl command to log-in, and changed url & port in netcat command to connect to radarbox24 server.

It did NOT work for Radarbox24. Does anyone know how to do it by a script?

Here is what I tried

#first installed netcat
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install netcat

#created a new file rb24fdr.sh
Code: [Select]
cd ~
sudo nano rb24fdr.sh

#in new blank file, copy-pasted following code
Code: [Select]
#! /bin/sh
while true
  do
    sleep 30
    curl --user [MY EMAIL]:[MY PASSWORD] http://www.airnavsystems.com:7878 -v
    /bin/nc 127.0.0.1 30003 | /bin/nc airnavsystems.com 7878
  done

#saved file (ctrl+o) and closed nano editor (ctrl+x)

#made new file executable
Code: [Select]
sudo chmod +x  rb24fdr.sh

# Now run the file
Code: [Select]
./rb24fdr.sh &

#it showed output as below
Code: [Select]
[1] 10831
 * Rebuilt URL to: http://www.airnavsystems.com:7878/
* Hostname was NOT found in DNS cache
*   Trying 96.31.64.6...
* Connected to www.airnavsystems.com (96.31.64.6) port 7878 (#0)

> GET / HTTP/1.1
> Authorization: Basic xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
> User-Agent: curl/7.38.0
> Host: www.airnavsystems.com:7878
> Accept: */*
>



I then checked the Radarbox.com web page. None of planes are shown from my station, although when I feed from Windows desktop using RB24 data feeder, I see a large number of planes from my station.
Anyone can help?

Good luck with that one. I got my set up running to an other site quite easily, but I wouldn`t have a clue about writing a script to do it.

I feed 4 different sites from my Raspberry Pi. All these I got running very easily, three by installing their Linux data feeder, and fourth by script file.

I am unable to feed RB24 directly from Rasberry Pi due to non availability of their Linux data feeder or script.

Why not contact support@airnavsystems and ask about connecting via script

Yes, yesterday I emailed the script to support. They checked and found I am feeding data, but misunderstood that it is by th script. It was actually by their windows data feeder running on my desktop. The problem is still unresolved.

Then about 5 hours ago, I sent email to Andre Brandao of AirNavSystems, giving link to my above post which has the script and all details script. Waiting for reply.

Hi

Thanks for your email,. We are preparing a brand new raspberry pi feeder software but it is not yet available. We believe, taking in account the current development, that it will be ready in 4-6 weeks.

Hopefully it can be fed by dump1090 or similar receiver/decoder software. If the PI feeder needs exclusive access to the receiver dongle it would still be useless for me (and many others I guss).

To make this conversion locally on Ras Pi, I wrote this script to run on RPi

#saved file as rb24.sh

pi@raspberrypi:~ $ chmod +x rb24.sh
#run the file

Now read the contents of output file 30003.buf ..... Format changed successfully.

This will be good when they release it I asked years ago. I'm feeding radar360 and fr24 on Pi upstairs.
Soon as we get a break on the weather this is going down the garden and fed off the solar system I've installed for the garage and man shed.
My Hp server will shut the drives down and run off it's ssd till called for then.

We are in advanced development stages for RPI client/server. It was supposed to be finished in February but we had to give priority to other urgent projects. I hope it will be ready in mid April.
