    Planefinder Sharing problems

    Well.. Since Jan 2nd, when I put the receiver on a hardwired cable, there have been no more dropouts for me.. I ran one week with Planefinder client on RPi, and then a week ago, moved back to Windows 8 VM for both the Basestation and PFClient. So far, so good. So, I guess in my case, it was...

    Planefinder Sharing problems

    OK.. The more I watch what is going on, I'm more inclined to believe the problem may be the network connection to the reciever. It took me longer than I had hoped, but I just got it up and running on a WIRED network, so although it goes through 2 switches, it is at least going through real...

    Planefinder Sharing problems

    Oh! Encrypted.. That makes sense then.. OK.. I'll leave it running as is for now then (BaseStation on Windows, Client on PI..) I did have a problem over the last few days that MIGHT have been causing the issue, or at least confusing the diagnosis/making it worse.. I dont yet have "real"...

    Planefinder Sharing problems

    OK.. I'm almost there.. but, I'm confused.. (I know - what's new!) :-) In the "windows world" we run "BaseStation" to talk to the network based receiver and it translates data coming in on port 10001, and makes it available for the client to read from localhost:30006, right? I've never...

    Planefinder Sharing problems

    Absolutely! Do you guys have a preferred flavor of linux? Or.. well.. Let me go read about the linux install and I'll see if my questions are answered there.. I should have time to do that tonight or tomorrow morning no problem.. And again, it's a question that will be answered when I read...

    Planefinder Sharing problems

    Well.. Win8 didn't help.. It seems that sometime today, it stopped working, and PFClient just "went away".. My BaseStation is still running, and showing planes as normal. In the interest of full disclosure, since my radio is in the garage, I have it on the other side of a powerline ethernet...

    Planefinder Sharing problems

    Sounds good.. It took several cycles of patching and reboots, but I've got it running on a fully patched Win8 pro machine, and it ran all night so it seems better now.. The only thing I dont have working is auto-running it at startup. Somehow, my auto-logon is working, and Basestation runs...

    Planefinder Sharing problems

    I have cloned the VM, and have started an upgrade to Win8.1 Pro on the clone.. The original was Windows 7 Pro "N" x64 version (Not sure how I ended up putting the "N" version in there, but that's what it was.. The image is unfortunately pretty big - 60+gigs I think.. I'd be happy to put it...

    Planefinder Sharing problems

    I'm not sure if it's the same problem Nigel was having, since this thread seems to have died, but I had shared my data for several years with no problems, and this week, after being offline for about 18 months due to a house fire, I started sharing again with the new client, and although I LOVE...
