Hi all-

 

My weekend project is to get ASN on a laptop in a networked config for P3D 3.1

 

So far, not much luck..From the P3D SDK, I have simconnec.xml examples that look like this...

 

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

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

<SimBase.Document Type="SimConnect" version="1,0">
  <Descr>SimConnect Server Configuration</Descr>
  <Filename>SimConnect.xml</Filename>
  <Disabled>False</Disabled>

  <!-- Example Global (remote) Pipe Server Configuration-->
  <SimConnect.Comm>
    <Disabled>True</Disabled>
    <Protocol>Pipe</Protocol>
    <Scope>global</Scope>
    <MaxClients>64</MaxClients>
    <Port>REPLACE_WITH_PORT_NAME</Port>
  </SimConnect.Comm>

  <!-- Example Global (remote) IPv6 Server Configuration-->
  <SimConnect.Comm>
    <Disabled>True</Disabled>
    <Protocol>IPv6</Protocol>
    <Scope>global</Scope>
    <MaxClients>64</MaxClients>
    <Address>::</Address>
    <Port>REPLACE_WITH_PORT_NUMBER</Port>
  </SimConnect.Comm>

  <!-- Example Global (remote) IPv4 Server Configuration-->
  <SimConnect.Comm>
    <Disabled>True</Disabled>
    <Protocol>IPv4</Protocol>
    <Scope>global</Scope>
    <MaxClients>64</MaxClients>
    <Address>0.0.0.0</Address>
    <Port>REPLACE_WITH_PORT_NUMBER</Port>
  </SimConnect.Comm>

  <!-- Example Local Pipe Server Configuration-->
  <SimConnect.Comm>
    <Disabled>True</Disabled>
    <Protocol>Pipe</Protocol>
    <Scope>local</Scope>
    <MaxClients>64</MaxClients>
    <Port>REPLACE_WITH_PORT_NAME</Port>
  </SimConnect.Comm>

  <!-- Example Local IPv6 Server Configuration-->
  <SimConnect.Comm>
    <Disabled>True</Disabled>
    <Protocol>IPv6</Protocol>
    <Scope>local</Scope>
    <MaxClients>64</MaxClients>
    <Address>::1</Address>
    <Port>REPLACE_WITH_PORT_NUMBER</Port>
  </SimConnect.Comm>

  <!-- Example Local IPv4 Server Configuration-->
  <SimConnect.Comm>
    <Disabled>True</Disabled>
    <Protocol>IPv4</Protocol>
    <Scope>local</Scope>
    <MaxClients>64</MaxClients>
    <Address>127.0.0.1</Address>
    <Port>REPLACE_WITH_PORT_NUMBER</Port>
  </SimConnect.Comm>

</SimBase.Document>

From the HiFi manual networking page, I have these instructions...

 

The values for
Protocol
,
Address
and
Port
must be modified.
The other values should be
left default.
For
Protocol
,
IPv4
should be used.
Example: <Protocol>IPv4</Protocol>
For
Address
,
use either the computer name or the physical IP address of this
SERVER
.
Example: <Address>192.168.1.102</Addres
s>
For
Port
,
use any port you wish to enable for SimConnect communications.
We suggest port 500.
This port will need to be enabled in any software firewall programs you are running
(including windows firewall).
Example: <Port>500</Port>
Note
: If you are
using FSUIPC
v4 with FSX/P3D
, you may need to perform the follo
wing
steps for proper
networked operation:
1.
First set the SimConnect.xml as described above.
2.
Next set the <Scope> variable to global instead of local (<Scope>global</Scope>).
3.
Run FSUIPC install (again if already installed).
Your SimConnect.xml will then be
properly configured.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Which example(s) do I use and what does the final syntax of the simconnect.xml look like?

 

Thanks,

Mark

I've got this pretty much worked out, except on ASN startup, I get a "XML issue- dll.xml could not be verified. Please fix/delete file to ensure proper operation"

After a few seconds, I do get a connection and the weather does change.

Here's my dll.xml if that helps...

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

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

<SimBase.Document Type="AceXML" version="3,0" id="dll">
<Descr>AceXML Document</Descr>
<Filename>dll.xml</Filename>
</SimBase.Document>

 

Any ideas?

 

Thanks,

Mark

Mark, a couple of months ago, I went through hell trying to get ASN and ProATCx configured in network mode. I can't help you much as far as your xml files but if it will help you, I can send you my xml's? 

 

Let me know and I can shoot them over to you.

I didn't go thru hell, but I did go thru A LOT of work getting to where I am right now.

 

ANYway, if you can PM me with your xml, I would greatly appreciate it. I'll look for it tomorrow morning and give it another try.

 

Thanks for your help.

After mega tries and forum help, I  already have a successful SimConnect setup running my vPilot on a client---I guess this means SCnnct is talking across the network from server to client.

 

After reading the Networking section in the ASN manual:

 

*  Do I need another license to install ASN on my client (XP) ?

*  Is the client SimConnect located inside the ASN program, then, on my client?

 

Thanks for your help.
