I been testing the SimServer Software for a while and it seems to works good, haven't bought a Licence yet because something very particular that happens on my system. I created a link of the SimServer to the Startup Folder so the software activates when I log on windows. I started to notice that after a while the only website that works is the one I'm currently on, If I go to any other website I get a "DNS error page". at first I thought it was my Network Card going bad but I have 5 Boots of Windows on this PC and it doesn't happen on any of the other ones. I figure that if I exit SimServer I get the internet connectivity back. Windows Troubleshooter can't find any Problems. But I tried Startinf V-Pilot and the connection was broken. Only after I Exit SimServer internet connectivity is restored. I don't know how long does it takes but it happens every time...Wonder if anyone has experienced this issue. Thanks!!!

Hi Otniel,

I believe I have narrowed down this issue and should be resolved with the next update.

Background: once P3D or FSX exits, SimServer will continuously try to re-establish connection. It seems, if this is retried too often, Windows will on some systems cause the network to not respond. Although I believe this to be a Windows issue (because I'm not trying to establish a network connection at that point), I now use a different method to check if P3D or FSX are actually running before trying to connect.

This update should be available soon.

Regards
