  • Metar Download not working from apollo3.com

    Hi James.
    You were right in mentioning this in another thread.

    Code:
    server=weather.apollo3.com
    dir=data/observations/metar/cycles
    Is'nt working unfortunately.

    I get a hosname lookup failure in the log.

    Code:
    Could not lookup METAR host name weather.apollo3.com
    Maybe it's a misconfiguration on my part. I rebuild the server on my home pc so yes I switcht to ubuntu (14.04) with all service (and therefor kicked Windows out the window). In due time I will try to install Xplane again (the test system worked so it should work here also I guess).

    I haven't seen this in the old server logs so I think I did something wrong in the ubuntu configuration itself.

    What do you need James? Also the fsd.conf in a pm?

    Thanks for your help in advance.

    In addition, is it possible to download and import from the VATSim server using this URL:

      The FSD server is designed to use FTP protocol to download the metar info; therefore the http protocol is not useable.

        Hi Larry,
        I think you meant to post the fsd.conf here from the sticky thread with you weather announcement.

        Code:
        [weather]
        source=download
        #server=tgftp.nws.noaa.gov
        server=weather.apollo3.com
        dir=data/observations/metar/cycles
        ftpmode=passive
        and this is quit obvious from the log.txt

        Code:
        12-09-114 14:10:00 AlmereFSD: ** METAR: Could not lookup METAR host name weathe$
        12-09-114 15:10:00 AlmereFSD: ** METAR: Could not lookup METAR host name weathe$
        12-09-114 16:10:00 AlmereFSD: ** METAR: Could not lookup METAR host name weathe$
        12-09-114 17:10:00 AlmereFSD: ** METAR: Could not lookup METAR host name weathe$
        12-09-114 18:10:00 AlmereFSD: ** METAR: Could not lookup METAR host name weathe$
        12-09-114 19:10:00 AlmereFSD: ** METAR: Could not lookup METAR host name weathe$
        12-09-114 20:10:00 AlmereFSD: ** METAR: Could not lookup METAR host name weathe$
