Need help with VatSim "JOIN SESSION" procedure.

Recommended Posts

After:1. Clicking on "SB MAIN PROGRM"2. Entering my name.3. Makeing sure "TCP/IP" is checked.4. "Starting Search"5. Entering "127.0.0.1" (Only way it has ever worked for me)6. Clicking "OK".My flight plans never appear, thus I cannot "JOIN SESSION".My flight plans show up as they should in the correct format in the SB folder, and also are present later in the procedure for selecting the flight under "FMS functions>Load FMS Flight Plan" , but will not come up for the "JOIN SESSION" choices and options. Some time ago, I was able to go ahead and fly my flightplan, but if I understand correctly, I can see no other aircraft as long as this problem persists.In times past as a Newbie in FS2002, I was able to accomplish thisfunction. After upgrading to FS9, I have had this problem and havedropped trying to learn the Vatsim routine for some time. Can anyone give me the reason and solution to being able to "SEARCH" for my flightplans and "JOIN SESSION"?Thanks:RTH

If you are using FS9 there is a critical piece of software you did not mention in your post, SBRelay. SBRelay hosts a session that you JOIN from Squawkbox and JOIN from FS9. Also, the flightplans you are searching for are no longer in the same folder they used to be stored in.Drop me an email and I will forward links to the new VATSIM Pilot Training documents that will be going on-line in a few more weeks when our evaluation is complete.Take out the "NO" and the "SPAM" in the email address below.

Thank you for the kind reply and advice.You named my problem. As I mentioned, it has been a while since I tried VatSim, and I forgot all about SBRelay which I have on my system.I sent you my email for reference to the future links you mentioned. Thanks for the help.RTH
