AivlaSoft EFB and W10 Networking

Recommended Posts

Hello All,

Am unsure whether this is the right (sub) forum – no doubt someone will put me right.

I am about to purchase AivlaSoft EFB and need a little advice.

Currently I have a desktop running FSX on W10 plus a new laptop also running W10 - both have plenty of grunt and both access the internet through the same router located adjacent to both PCs.

As suggested by AivlaSoft I want to run FSX and the EFB Server on the desktop with EFB Client on the Laptop.  I am somewhat nervous as I have read many posts suggesting W10 has made even setting up a simple small network somewhat difficult.

Being a total newbie to networking I am asking whether has anyone put together a similar set up (or related networking knowledge) and if so can you give me a little advice on how to make it happen, settings etc etc.

Thanks,

Mike Ody

Hi Mike,

My knowledge of Networking is only from using Simconnect which the files are within the FSX Folder, can't remember exactly where, I've also done the same for P3D previously.

Although I think you maybe able to run both applications for Avivlasoft EFB on the desktop computer as they don't take up much room and this is what I know do for P3D.

Thanks

Jason

Thanks Jason,

The AivlaSoft EFB software has 2 parts - one part is the 'Server' that acts as an 'intermediary' that sits between the Sim and the second part of the software which is the 'Client'. It is this second part that is where the 'user' does all the planning all the planning plus lots more.

There is an option to run the 'Server' and Sim on the same PC [much simpler but really needs 2 monitors] and the Client on 'another' separate PC - which is I want to do.

My problem is that AivlaSoft dont really address the networking nuts and bolts of making the separate PC option happen.

Thanks anyway,

Mike
