Error when trying to start sphinx with sphinx my.drone::wifi_iface=auto (Trying to use ground sdk application to control simulated drone)

Trying to start sphinx with this
sphinx “/opt/parrot-sphinx/usr/share/sphinx/drones/anafi_ai.drone”::firmware=“”::wifi_iface=auto

Ended up with this error

If I try to start it with wifi_iface=, it works fine, so I’m unsure of what the error is
I need to start it with auto so that I can connect it to my ground sdk application
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

With wifi_iface=auto, sphinx automatically “steals” your wifi interface to use it in the drone. If you already use this interface to connect to the Internet, sphinx won’t be able to download the the firmware at

See Troubleshooting - 2.14.1

If you really want the simulated firmware to use your wifi interface to be able to connect to freeflight, you can first download the firmware on your disk, and then use a local path in your command line:

sphinx “/opt/parrot-sphinx/usr/share/sphinx/drones/anafi_ai.drone”::firmware=“/local/path/to/”::wifi_iface=auto

Ah I see, thank you. May I ask if I can connect both python sdk and my android application to the drone at the same time?

As far as I know, you can’t have multiple connections at the same time.
