When I start Active Sky Next , I get the following error :


Radar Data Network Error

ASR radar data network could not be established.

This may be due to the configured port 19284 already being used.


I checked firewall , etc... could not find anything


Can somebody help, thank.

This is an old guide but has all the info in there.


Here is a snip-it from it 


Important requirements for networked configuration:

  • FSX Gold + Acceleration/Deluxe version ONLY if using FSX Boxed (standard does not include the SDK or required SimConnect client installation files)
  • FSX Service Pack 2 (or later) update applied ( if using FSX
  • FSX SDK installed from FSX Deluxe Disk 1 (\SDK folder setup.exe) if using FSX Boxed
  • FSX SDK SP1A (or later) update applied ( if using FSX Boxed
  • FSX SDK SP2/Acceleration update applied ( if using FSX (all SDK updates must be applied in order: Standard, then SP1A, then SP2/Acceleration
  • The computer to run FSX/P3D (hereby named SERVER) and the computer(s) to run SimConnect add-ons (hereby named CLIENT(s)) must be appropriately configured for normal IP networking
  • Firewall software must be configured to allow SimConnect communications on the port you set (we suggest port 500) – This includes windows firewall – and applies to all computers, both SERVER and CLIENT(s)
  • Remember to also open up port 19284 for radar data communication
  • Shared Folders must be properly configured
