SB and WideFS

Recommended Posts

Guest

I'm using a network with 2 PC's. Server running on WinXP with FS2002.Client running on Win98SE. Because FS2002 and SB don't interact as they did with Fs2000, I'm working on a setup in which SB runs on the client PC with the WideFS application.I succeeded to install SB (latest version for FS2002) on the client. With the TCPIP protocol installed and running WideFS, my SB can't join the multiplayer session on the server although it can find the session. Also a connection with IVAO or VATSIM is not possible, although it seems to me that it does receive some information from those servers, because the first line (blue in color) appears in the squawkbox window. After that >> error !!!Does anybody have any experience using SB and FS2002 in such a matter and setup?Edwin

Hello Edwin,I have exactly the same setup, using a LinkSys Router. I do not find any trouble connecting to VATSIM. I know I had to forward some ports. As I am not on my computer right now, I have to check which ports they are. The problem I have on the other hand is which setting to change to see others. I cannot get anybody in my session, just like multi-solo-player. I think I have to forward my IP address of the PC, which I would not prefer. Does anybody know another solution?

I lower the firewall. Write on a Post-it in big letters, EXPOSED and attach it to your monitor. When you finish, put the firewall back up and take down the note.Go to advanced settings, DMZ and change the 0 to the match the computer you are using to connect to VATSIM. When finished change it back to 0.Regards,BobIn the Land of Lincoln
