Just got my Planefinder up and running on my Raspberry Pi. Noted an odd error in the client log file repeating every 5 seconds... can anyone help me please?

"Failed to connect to Trimble stream (port 10685), reattemping..."

Repeats over and over in the client log file:
[-] Failed to connect to Trimble stream (port 10685), reattemping...
[V] Failed to open connection to socket: Connection refused (errno: 111)

Can you show your settings, they are shown in the webinterface on port 30053
Replace pi4 with the address of your RPi
http://pi4:30053/setup.html


Or you can use this command:
cat /etc/pfclient-config.json
{"tcp_address":"localhost","tcp_port":"30005","select_timeout":"10","data_upload_interval":"10","connection_type":"1","aircraft_timeout":"30","data_format":"1",

Be sure to remove the latitude, longitude and sharecode.


Might just be that the settings are unrelated to the error.

How are you receiving 1090 MHz?

No clue then :)

Trimble produces GPS units but i'm not sure why pfclient would try to connect to anything like that.

You wrote Raspberry Pi but Trimble GPS sounds more like one of the planefinder receiver units.
Maybe the client somehow thinks it's working in one of those units?

Did you select Beast as data format and TCP as connection type, or some other options?
Maybe you selected "Plane Finder Radar" as the Receiver data format.

I think that would explain the error.

If you are running dump1090 use the Beast format on port 30005

Changed Data Format to "Beast" ... no more "Trimble" errors... good catch!!! Thank you!
