deamon init.d script rtl_tcp-server

Postby 1byte » 2019-01-07 09:28

I would like to get rtl_tcp start on boot and run permanently on one of my PC.

DAB Radio client offers such a script

So I have:
Code: Select all
cd /etc/init.d/
sudo wget
sudo chmod a+rx rtl_tcp-server
ls -l
2623282 -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 2026 Jun  9  2018 rtl_tcp-server
sudo reboot

But nothing runs after reboot, well it's "exited" :
Code: Select all
sudo service rtl_tcp status
sudo systemctl status rtl_tcp.service
sudo journalctl -xe
sudo netstat -ntpl

Code: Select all
$ sudo service rtl_tcp status
● rtl_tcp-server.service - LSB: RTL-SDR remote server
   Loaded: loaded (/etc/init.d/rtl_tcp-server; generated; vendor preset: enabled)
   Active: active (exited) since Sat 2019-01-05 11:01:23 GMT; 1 day 23h ago
     Docs: man:systemd-sysv-generator(8)
  Process: 1184 ExecStart=/etc/init.d/rtl_tcp-server start (code=exited, status=0/SUCCESS)
    Tasks: 0 (limit: 4915)
   CGroup: /system.slice/rtl_tcp-server.service

But looking over here:
It's not really what I am looking for ...

The script "rtl_tcp-server" can be viewed here: ... rtl_tcp.rc

Is there any way to add support for IPv6 as well "[::]:1234" so it is listening on a port on any network adapter?
