Thats correct - comms are working between the two computers. No reason it shouldnt have been but best to check. You can kill it now.

Hang on let me copy the info Ive just posted on the other thread here. :D

The pingwas was just to confirm that you had computer - computer connection. No reason really why you shouldnt have had a connection but its best to start with first principles. Miss something basic out & you can end up looking like a right charlie! :D

So - you have downloaded the windows version of the dump1090 software from Lowflyingwales unzipped it and set it up according to the instructions? You have configured the bat file as indicated on the lfw site and you are launching dump1090 using the edited batch file First time I ran dump1090 I ran the actual executable which gives a different output. And of course it didnt work.

Yes, I edited the dump1090 batch file (yesterday) and it starts fine from the shortcut (on the desktop of 2nd m/c) - all the posts on this thread will come from my main m/c to minimise interactions.

Dump1090 running and showing data received.

Hang on, is virtual radar server and the dongle both running on the same machine?

Yes - the dongle, Dump1090, and VRS as is Mlat Client (but not yet started the latter two) are all on the 2nd m/c.

have you got any firewall software running on the PC?

Or it could be the windows firewall.

Thats not right - you should be getting a list across the screen. That looks like a shortcut to dump1090 as thats what I saw the first time I ran 1090 direct.

As I said earlier on the other thread, Kaspersky Internet Security (KIS) is running on this (& the 1st) m/c and I can't seem to disable it without uninstalling it. Window Firewall is not running and says that that KIS is handling the Firewall tasks.

A/S

As I said on the other thread, I originally got the display across the screen, but when I changed antennas a couple of times the display changed to the rolling version (had done nothing other than change antennas!)

Should I uninstall dump1090 and reinstall it, and then re-edit the batch file?
NB: I did print out and check the installation instructions, and my batch file text appears to match the example in those..

^^^ However this is excellent progress as it shows you are indeed decoding messages from aircraft :)
