FS Multiplayer

Recommended Posts

Hello when i try to join someone elses ip in multiplayer i can't and when someone tries to join mine, they can not neither. I put my firewall to allow all, and even stopped it, and still nothing, does anyone know what the problem might be? I can connect to someone elses ip in Roger Wilco but when i go to see the basestations 0 servers are up?? And now i have trouble connecting to VATSIM when i want to take a flight. Does anybody know what might be wrong? I have a cable connection. Thanx. Pedro ;-) Homebase: KEWR
