Hi Captain,

In order for VCDU to be able to communicate with Prosim, both Prosim and VAInterface need to be properly configured:

 

 A - Prosim737 (main window)
  • 1 - On the menu bar, click Config.
  • 2 - Select Configuration and then the Drivers tab.
  • 3 - Look for Generic COM Port/TCP driver and make sure it is enabled.
  • 4 - Click on Advanced and then on TCP Communication - TCP Port , define the communication port (the default value is 8091). This port is going to be used at the VAInterface HOST configuration later on.

 B - Prosim CDU
  • 1 - Start ProsimCDU and then click on the window background (dark) with the right mouse button.
  • 2 - Select Config option.
  • 3 - On the Options tab, define the CDU role for this particular instance (Captain CDU or F/O CDU):

  • 4 - At the Drivers tab, define the TCP port under Generic TCP Driver:

  It is possible to setup more than 2 CDU instances, but each one must have its own TCP port.

C - VAInterface

The VAInterface is done by manually editing the VAInterface.ini (located at the VAInterface installation folder) and filling out the following data structure under the [Prosim] tag:

[PROSIM]
HOST_PORT=8091
HOST_ADDR=127.0.0.1
CAPCDU=0
CAPSERVERPORT=8092
CAPSERVERADDR=127.0.0.1
FOCDU=1
FOSERVERPORT=8093
FOSERVERADDR=127.0.0.1

 Note: the values defined here are only didatic examples and should be changed for real configuration.

HOST_PORT - this is the communication port with Prosim737. It must be the same value defined on step A4.

HOST_ADDR - IP address IP of the computer where Prosim737 is installed. Usually it is the same machine where VAInterface also runs, so the local host address (127.0.0.1) is used. If you have each software in separate machines, then enter the IP address of the Prosim737 machine.

CAPCDU - enables (1) the conection with the Captain CDU. In case there is no Captain CDU instance, set this to 0 (zero).

CAPSERVERPORT - defines the Captain CDU TCP port. Must be the same port used in step B4.

CAPSERVERADDR - IP address of the computer where ProsimCDU is installed. Usually it is the same machine where VAInterface also runs, so the local host address (127.0.0.1) is used. If you have each software in separate machines, then enter the IP address of the ProsimCDU machine.

FOCDU - enables (1) the conection with the F/O CDU. In case there is no F/O CDU instance, set this to 0 (zero).

FOSERVERPORT - Define a porta TCP exatamente como configurado no item B4.

FOSERVERADDR - IP address of the computer where ProsimCDU is installed. Usually it is the same machine where VAInterface also runs, so the local host address (127.0.0.1) is used. If you have each software in separate machines, then enter the IP address of the ProsimCDU machine.

Also, on "Control Panel" it's necessary to select the profile "ProSim 737"

 

Kind regards,

 

Helton
