  • The most likely reason is that the post was off topic.
  • The topic could also have contained images or a video that were not appropriate to the original forum it was posted in.
  • The images might not have been "illustrative" or "explanatory" in nature.
  • The topic could have been moved because we deemed it to be more appropriately placed elsewhere.
Please ensure that your posts are "on topic" and contain illustrative images or videos as appropriate. Do not post videos or images just for entertainment purposes anywhere but in the screen shot or video forums. See our image posting rules here.

You can probably use software like Hamachi or Evolve to connect your computer to your friend and use FSX built-in option to connect directly to the host using their IP address (IP assigned by Hamachi/Evolve if using that or the ISP assigned IP address if you're not using any such software).

 

If you would like to fly on an online network like VATSIM, then the only software that currently allows you to connect and fly together is 'FSInn' with one connecting normally and the other connecting as an observer. This would still require you to go through the FSX built-in method to connect to your friends aircraft or vice versa. vPilot does not employ any such feature so you can't really use it unless you try a hybrid mode where the person who is the host connects through vPilot while the person joining uses FSInn and connects as an observer.

 

Plenty of guides are available on various forums on how to achieve this. It's also what you will probably need to do for the Aerosoft Airbus that now supports CFD (Connected Flight Deck) aka Shared Cockpit.
