Problems with my site ...Solved (was internet connection)
« on: April 29, 2019, 03:29:08 pm »
Just visited my site to investigate a few things .

I have joined the 360Radar community as a contributor with a pi at home so can see all MLAT targets.

These, though are only occasionally appearing on the EGSL VRS, and when they do, they have an odd routing assigned to them!

Also, on the OGN Status page, P3i Data is constantly Zero.

Help!

what does 'odd routing' mean - I am not sure I understand

It was a bug, not broadcasting the OGN ground-station, fix coming through right now ...

By the way, your station is picking up lots of traffic - we monitor remotely, eg :-

Hi Vic

Have you customised your installation in any way, I note that PWEGSL is not auto updating
I released version v20190429 earlier, and all (running) stations seem to have taken the update, but not PWEGSL ?

thx

Ah, sorry, omitted the relevant pic, see attached showing the club's C152 designated as going from Heathrow to Stockholm!  ??? Compare it to the 360Radar shot above

No, no customising done whatsoever, I wouldn't have a clue  :D. I did attempt a manual update this afternoon but it said we were on the latest version.

All is sorted now. The problem was all caused by network issues at the Airfield. They have 2 broadband networks from 2 incoming phone lines, one for public wifi and one for business. Trouble was the two were connected together by a rogue ethernet cable, so 2 hubs on the same IP address both trying to dish out DHCP addresses.

Result was extreme flakiness and intermittancy along with an unsecure setup!

A good trail plot here on 360Radar of a PAW fitted club AC doing circuits...  Rather quick! but 360Radar are working on that.

Hi Vic,

That was a confusing one! Glad to hear you have got to the bottom of the problem and hopefully all now resolved.

Best Regards

VRS seemingly running nicely on an old Bush smart TV in the clubhouse for all to see.

No local traffic due low cloud but it was gaining a lot of interest

What PC did you use to connect it to? I tried to do the same on a Raspberry Pi but it was lacking in the grunt to handle the updates.

No PC, just the browser built into the TV pointing at //Ognpaw:9000/VirtualRadar

Never thought of doing it that way. Sadly the TV I was going to use for the job does not fall under the description of 'Smart' ::)
