Virtual Radar Server Rebroadcast is very simple method that requires few steps [clicks].

THE PURPOSE OF THIS DOCUMENT IS TO SHOW HOW TO START BROADCASTING DATA TO RAWFLIGHT

STEP 1 – before you start Feeding

Before you start Feeding, you need to make sure, that:

  1. Your Internet connection is stable and there are no packet losses that may corrupt data
  2. Your router does not block outcoming connections on port 48581.
  3. You do have admin access to Virtual Radar Server

STEP 2 – what if…?

If you encounter any problems, with Step 1, do not hesitate to contact us. We will try to resolve your issues with feeding RawFlight.
1. We are unable to resolve issues with your Internet. You may need to contact your service provider.
2. Check which ports are allowed. If you do not need to open new port on your Router, please write us an e-mail or on FB and provide output port number. We will create special instance for you that will redirect data to correct port.
3. If you have Virtual Radar Server, it is very possible, that there is Dump1090 (or its fork) running. In this case, we suggest you to use our script method.

STEP 3 – Select Feeders and rebroadcast
