Network Will NOT CONNECT with ASN and P3D2.5

Recommended Posts

Subject: Unable to connect my network - NO FIREWALL ACTIVE    

I'm out of ideas, I cannot connect ASN to P3D 2.5 via network with B5589 and/or B5617. I installed ASConnect_P3D_install.exe on the server computer and I installed simconnect.msi (the one located in the P3D2.5 sub folder redist/interface/fsx-sp2--xpack/retail/lib) on the client computer.

 

All I see is: Waiting For Simulation

 

I've had this working for YEARS, all of a sudden this new install won't connect... Working on this for DAYS NOW.

My Setup is as follows

Client Computer - In My Documents
----------------------------------------
[simConnect]
Protocol=IPv4
Address=FLIGHTSIM-PC
Port=19284 // NOTE: Originally had 500 didn't work, then noticed your program using 19284 so tried that, didn't work.
MaxReceiveSize=4096
DisableNagle=0

Server Computer - In APPData, Roaming, Lockheed Martin, Prepar3D v2
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
<SimBase.Document Type="SimConnect" version="1,0">
<Descr>SimConnect</Descr>
<Filename>SimConnect.xml</Filename>
<Disabled>False</Disabled>
<SimConnect.Comm>
<Disabled>False</Disabled>
<Protocol>IPv4</Protocol>
<Scope>local</Scope>
<Address>FLIGHTSIM-PC</Address>
<MaxClients>64</MaxClients>
<Port>19284</Port> // NOTE: Originally had 500 didn't work, then noticed your program using 19284 so tried that, didn't work.
<MaxRecvSize>4096</MaxRecvSize>
<DisableNagle>False</DisableNagle>
</SimConnect.Comm>
<SimConnect.Comm>
<Disabled>False</Disabled>
<Protocol>Auto</Protocol>
<Scope>Global</Scope>
</SimConnect.Comm>


Server Computer - In Users, My Documents, Prepar3D v2
---------------------------------------------------------------
[simConnect]
level=verbose
console=0
;RedirectStdOutToConsole=1
;OutputDebugString=1
;file=c:\simconnect%03u.log
;file_next_index=0
;file_max_index=9

Hi Everyone,

 

I found the issue, man I'm getting old...

 

The fixed Simconnect.xml

 

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="WINDOWS-1252"?>

-<SimBase.Document version="1,0" Type="SimConnect">
<Descr>SimConnect</Descr>
<Filename>SimConnect.xml</Filename>

<Disabled>False</Disabled>
-<SimConnect.Comm>
<Disabled>False</Disabled>
<Protocol>IPv4</Protocol>
<Scope>global</Scope>
<Address>FLIGHTSIM-PC</Address>
<MaxClients>64</MaxClients>
<Port>500</Port>
<MaxRecvSize>4096</MaxRecvSize>
<DisableNagle>False</DisableNagle>
</SimConnect.Comm>
-<SimConnect.Comm>
<Disabled>False</Disabled>
<Protocol>Auto</Protocol>
<Scope>local</Scope>
</SimConnect.Comm>
</SimBase.Document>

I wish it was as simple for me. I had ASN working for such a long time and then the IP of my FS PC changed. I changed the necessary files to reflect that, but ASN now refuses to connect over the network. I tried everything - re-intalling on a different PC, checking all the config files etc. It just doesn't work. Pretty much ready to drop it and find something else.
