share - cannot select join aircraft

Hi all, trying to host a multiplayer session on a LAN. I've selected share aircraft but from the other system the 'join aircraft' option is greyed out and can't be selected. Anyone know why this happens?Thanks,Mike

A number of things can cause that to happen. What aircraft is it you're trying to share? Have you tried with default FSX aircraft? A lot of FS9 aircraft, specifically complex ones, cannot be used in shared cockpit. It has to do with the variables used in the gauges etc.If you've installed any FS9 addon aircraft that required you to 'trust' gauges before loading them for the first time, you can try deleting your fsx.cfg (back it up somewhere) and then let FSX build a new one when you restart it. I've seen trusted gauges block shared cockpit use even in default FSX aircraft before.Also make sure that the person trying to join your aircraft has *not* selected 'share my aircraft', as that will block it as well.Hope that helps,

Be sure 'Share my Aircraft' is NOT selected on the second machine
