My only home computer is a Linux laptop running a VirtualBox VM with guest OS Windows 7. (Have an SSD, so the virtual machine is pretty fast.) I would really love to run LiveFlight on Linux natively, but that’s not available at the moment. (What would it take for it to be available, I wonder?)
I made a first attempt at running LiveFlight on the Windows VM with Infinite Flight running on my iPhone 6+. But it never connected. At first I suspected that iptables was blocking some needed ports (I keep my machine pretty locked down). But after temporarily opening all ports to incoming traffic on my Linux host machine, it still didn’t work. Then I realized that even thought I was on the same LAN, I probably needed to connect via Wifi on my computer. But it still didn’t connect.
Anyways, I couldn’t spend much more time on this when I was trying, so I’ll put more effort into this in the coming days. Until then, I thought I’d post this to ask the community if anyone has successfully connected in a situation similar to mine? Or any other hints regarding running LiveFlight on Linux?
