WideFS 5.50 and XP


Recommended Posts

Just installed WideFS and can't get a connection between server and client on different computers.

FS running on XP with up todate patch and client running on W2K adv server. When I launch FS2K, I get the following error

Server Socket () Failed [error=10047]

Address family not supported by protocol family

Once I click the OK button, FS closes down. The following is the contents of the log file:

********* WideServer.DLL Log [version 4.65] *********

Using blocksize guide of 2048 bytes

727219 Server socket() failed [Error=10047] Address family not supported by protocol family

727219 Failed to start Server!

ServerIPAddr=192.168.1.5

Port=8002

Log=Errors+

If I put IPX/SPX back in then it runs but can't connect the client to server. I'm running TCP/IP protocol behind lynksys router. I can ping each computer by host or/or IP. I've tried all thats suggested in the docs but can't get it to work.

Anyone had this problem before, and how did you fix it.

Thanks

Ramon

This has ALWAYS meant simply that the protocol specified (IPX/SPX or TCP/IP) is not installed.

Version 4.65 is pretty old now. It only supports IPX/SPX. I think you'll find IPX/SPX is not installed by default on XP.

In any case I really cannot support old versions of WideFS. The performance of version 5 of WideFS is markedly superior to version 4. Since version 5.50, the current version, TCP/IP has been the default protocol as this is easier to set up with XP.

Er, it is absolutely no use specifying "UseTCPIP" for version 4.65 as TCP/IP was not supported until version 4.70 at the earliest (but buggy then -- full support was version 5.00). Please go download the current version and use that.
