Hello All
I installed a ADSB decode program (using a rtl-sdr receiver) called dump1090 on my Toshiba Satellite C650
running Ubuntu 20.04.2 LTS.
When I run it in "--interactive", it receives and decodes data on the terminal ok.
But when I run the "--net" command. I get this error.
"error opening the listening port 8080 (HTTP server): bind: Address already in use"
I suspect this is a linux issue. Unfortunately I am a bit awkward using linux.
Any help or insight would be very much appreciated.
Thanks in advance
Cheers

have you tried and change the port from 8080 to 8081 and see if that works
Code:
--net-http-port 8081
for its web server functions If dump1090 now starts OK, then that virtually confirms that something else is already using port 8080 - problem is nothing is currently showing up
Hello Lord Boltar
Thank you for the quick reply.
Yes if I use the command to change from the default 8080 port, it runs fine.
Apparently to view the data on the web browser I just link to
http://127.0.0.1:8080. I changed it to http://127.0.0.1:8081. Unfortunately it had a problem loading the page because it couldn't connect to the server address

Please forgive me as there is some information I should have included.
Previously I have downloaded a snap called ADSB-box. Once downloaded and after searching the web, I could not find any information on how to run it, so I just gave up on it. It is still installed. Playing around with web browser I entered http://127.0.0.0:8080 and a "adsb box Snap" window came up with a PiAwar/SkyAware flight tracker map. Hmmm It would be nice to find some info on adsb-box or maybe I should remove it. Yikes
Thanks in advance

Yepper sounds like a plan - need to remove one or the other

Thanks again.
Yea I went ahead and removed asdb-box. it seems too complicated to figure out (for me anyways)
Dump1090 now runs with the default 8080 web address.
( no errors displayed and it is decoding data on the terminal)
From what I understand dump1090 will display a google map with the flight data, once it is connected to the browser
Unfortunately the web browser still opens the PiAwar/SkyAware flight tracker map when connecting to http//127.0.0.1:8080. Dagnabit
Thanks for any help
Cheers
