Hi,

I am the process of moving from FSX-SE to XP 11. I've got Little Navmap installed on the main simming computer and also on 2 remote computers. However, when I launch Little Navmap Connect on the sim computer, the numbers in the "Port" window are in red and the remote computers will not connect. 

Is there a fix for this? Little Navmap was working perfectly for me in FSX-SE. I have updated to the latest version of Little Navmap, v1.8.3

I'm switching from FSX-SE due to the latest Windows 10 update, the "Fall Creator's" Edition making FSX and Prepar3d unusable for some people - of which I unfortunately are one. I hope that update didn't mess up the workings of Little Navmap also.

Thanks,

Scott

Hi Scott,

the red port number is not a warning but should only help people to add the right values to the right fields.

Did you install the Little Xpconnect plugin into X-Plane? Does Navconnect connect to it when X-Plane is running?
Are the firewall settings OK? Sometimes Windows 10 has its own mind about user settings when installing its updates and changes them.
Also, when updating anything (and especially Xpconnect) delete the old directory and do not merge old and new versions.

Hi Alex,

Thanks for the reply. 

I'm at work right now so I can't check my computer at home, but I'm pretty sure that I put the Xpconnect plugin into X-Plane. I will check when I get home this evening.

When I closed out of X-plane last night the Xpconnect dialogue box looked like it had connected with the remote computer, as there was a scrolling message about the connection being lost. However, during my simming session, the aircraft I was using did not show up on the remote computer's map.

Scott,

the best way to fix this is is to send me the logs of both programs by email.

Hi Alex,

I'm home and simming now in XP 11.  I'm not getting any errors, but there are not any aircraft showing on the map. With the "Simulator Aircraft" tab selected, there is a message at the top that says "Connected. Waiting for update".

I dug around in that Abarth file that installs in my user, etc...folders. What is it I'm looking for?

Thanks,

Scott

Hi Scott,

I split the posts off from the other topics into a new thread.

Don't look at the ini files. It won't help you.

Look at the status bar. There is another indication "Connected"  or "Connecting ...". It has a tooltip which will show you the remote computer name or error messages.

Also, to see any aircraft on the map you have to start a flight. Nothing will show up while you're still in the main menu of the simulator.

Hi Alex,

No, I have the simulator running - not paused, either, when I attempt to make the connection.

I found those files you mentioned. I'm sending them to the email address provided in the Little Xpconnect readme file.

Thanks,

Scott

For all with similar problems:

The problem was solved after I sent a modified "little_navconnect.ini" file to Scott.

I seems that Navconnect gets into an invalid state when FSX or P3D are removed from the flying computer and still tries to connect to FSX instead of X-Plane.

A simple workaround until this is fixed is to delete the configuration file "C:\Users\YOURUSERNAME\AppData\Roaming\ABarthel\little_navconnect.ini" on the flying computer.

Greetings etc......

I found this topic, and I did hope it would solve mine.....

Read an laugh.......

Post Scriptum
 
Went and looked around, mostly for log files.

Found dates of releases.

Colour me somewhat stupid, hence the permission granted to laugh.

Downloaded LNConnect, latest version to match latest version of LN Map.

Et, Voila!!  

Ignore all the following.......

Alas.........

Two computers

Flying puter

mapping computer

LNM runs ok on Mapping, (MAP) after trials and tribulations.  It really did think I was using XPlane.

I managed to convince it that this was not the case.

FSX:SE on Flying puter

LN Connect on Flying Puter   (Flight)

Reports the IP and Port correctly

Using the procedure as outlined in HELP files, created the databases on Flight and Transfered them to MAP

 

LNM displays all data as expected on MAP

Run connect on Fligfht

Command MAP to connect.

This shows up instantly

Tried refreshing the simconnect files, installing all the legacy files.

On MAP, I deleted LN Connect.INI as in previous post .

The rebuilt one is

[Options]
Verbose=false
DefaultPort=51968
ReconnectRate=10
UpdateRate=500

 

Damn, am I confused now!!!

Thanks for reading. I would send the logs, If I could find them

Hi Bob,

bit hard to follow.:smile:

But I'd say that versions of LNM and LNC don't match. Use the latest 1.8.5 which includes LNC.

The error message is a tiny bit confusing since it normally should say "Version mismatch".:mellow:

Is there any firewall or anti virus messing with the connections?

Alex

Edit: I see it is solved now. I should probably read the whole post.:smile:
