There is a new pre-requisite package that is often already installed, but obviously it isn’t for you :slight_smile:

Simply enter the following command to install it:

sudo apt-get install libudev-dev

Then rebuild wfview.

Thanks Phil, appreciated just completed and now can connect.

However, I can not get the Audio in the remote location. All radio controls work from remote.

Any special settings for Audio when using the PI as the server ?

Thanks, M. AB4LW

This is usually due to the wrong audio devices being selected in the Server tab. This must be the radios USB audio codecs.

Also try different audio systems (Qt, RT, PortAudio) you need to disconnect before you can change it though.

Much of this is covered in the dedicated server manual page Remote Operation (server) | wfview

I was able to make it work in Windows 11 client with RaspberryPI server running Armbian/Ubuntu. It did only worked when selecting LPCM 1ch 16 bit codecs and Port Audio. I only need to work on the transmitted audio next to calibrate my headset and microphones for clear modulation as possible.

Appreciate your quick responses and have all a Good weekend as well.
