Downloading WX from a secondary computer?

Recommended Posts

Guest Ruahrc

I have a pretty strange question for you... I recently moved and now the computer I have FS installed on is unable to connect to the internet. This is trouble since I can no longer download weather through ASV for use in FS.I have a laptop, however, that can connect to the internet. The trouble is, this laptop is an Apple computer and not a PC (So I can't just install ASV on it and copy the downloaded files over).I was wondering, is there a way in which I can connect directly to the ASV weather servers via an internet browser or FTP client on my Apple laptop to directly download the METAR data? Then I can just copy them to my PC via an ethernet cable.Is this possible? No? Perhaps I need to invest in a modem for my PC hehe. (That is why I can't connect btw... my PC has ethernet+wireless only whereas my laptop has a built-in modem too, and currently I am using dial-up internet access)Ruahrc
