docker run --link dump1090:beast --mac-address=<mac address> wnagele/piaware <flightaware user> <flightaware password>
Docker normally assigns a random MAC address every time a container is created. As Flightaware uses your MAC to identify a receiver you have to use the mac-address option to keep it consistent. You can choose any random MAC for this, just keep it the same once you have choosen one.
BEAST_PORT_30005_TCP_PORT to configure the connection details for the Beast data feed. If you link in a container named
beast that exposes port 30005 these will be set by Docker directly.
MLAT support is enabled by default. You can set
