WideClient will not connect to FS2004.

Recommended Posts

I made this request on Peter Dowson's Support Forum. Unfortunately, WideClient is no longer supported for FS9 (FS2004). The Dowson's were kind enough to reply anyway suggesting an incorrect IP address, or firewall prevention. The best and biggest advice was as always to Read the manual. So I decided to post this on Avsim to see if possibly anybody else had been down this road and had any other suggestions.

Framerates have slowed down over time for me at high density locations in FSX and I have not yet searched for the cause yet. It's been a long time, so I thought I would install FS2004 again and take a peek. It flies beautifully anywhere. I realize scenery is nowhere near what it is in FSX even with UT,  FSGenesis, and a number of other addons, but at high altitudes this becomes somewhat academic. For low and slow, I will stick to FSX. I have the Dreamteam, Simflyers, and quite a few more third party airports, so that is not much of an issue. It's kind of fun, particularly to be able to fly the Dreamfleet 727 and Baron along with a few other old favorites that didn't make it to FSX.

My problem is as follows:

FSX and FS9 are installed on unique harddrives on my primary computer. I have FlightSim Commander installed on a secondary computer. Implemented by the FSUIPC / WideClient programs (Peter Dowson).

I cannot get WideClient to connect to FS2004.

Note that everything works beautifully in FSX with no problems at all, so we know both computer talk to each other.

I don't quite have it memorized yet, but I have been over the manual repeatedly for the past few days, I have downloaded and reinstalled FSUIPC 3.999z9 and WideFS6 (several times). I am sure the specified files are installed in the correct locations. Surely I wouldn't make the same exact mistake or typo so many times. I also double checked after each step. My IP Address is correct. Antivirus and Firewall provisions have been disabled. I have restarted both computers after every step. Although it proved futile, I did edit the WideClient.ini  file to include ServerName=Office-PC (The host computer server name), and Protocol=TCP as instructed on page 4 of the manual as a possible solution.

Any suggestions?

Thanks so much for the reply Luke.

I got my hopes up even though I new this was not solution..

On the last round where I reinstalled everything, I just forgot to register it.

On earlier tries I registered with my old key after quite a search to find it.

Thereafter I have used the free key provided on the FSUIPC download page, IUT7 DBMK 1EU!1 (Being that it is free and published I assume it is alright to list it here.)

I just registered again, and have waited for an hour and am still getting "Waiting for a connection". I do show registration in the FS9 modules display now in FS2004.

Thanks again, but I fear this is not the solution,.

I also realize I had a typo in the key from the download site. the "!" does not belong and should be deleted

Mystery of mysteries!

I guess it was just Murphy.

Got up this morning, clicked on WideFS, started FS2004, and WideClient immediately connected.

I suspect your firewall, or DHCP gave out a different (correct) server IP address. How do you handle IP addresses on your network?
