WideFS trouble


Recommended Posts

Hey everyone. I have been pulling my hair out this past week. I download and installed WideFS. I followed the instructions to the best of my ability but have not been able to get it working. Here is the config files and the client log.

Client config

; PLEASE SEE WideFS documentation for parameter details

I am using the current FSUIPC from the webpage and windows XP is running on both machines. I have no problems with the network when I run any other software. Thanks for any help anyone can provide.

In your WideClient INI you have:

UseTCPIP=Yes

ServerIPAddr=192.168.0.1

Port=8002

which is fine, assuming the IP address is in fact fixed as that. I see in the Server log:

Date (dmy): 08/07/03, Time 11:35:57.613: Server name is GAME

so why not try setting the Server name (GAME) in the WideClient, rather than specify the IP Address? The it will find it even if the IP address is changed.

As for this error:

[Error=10065] No route to host

I admit to NEVER having seen that one. All the Microsoft documentation says about it is "the network cannot be reached from this host at this time"! Sort of implies that at another time it would be okay? Weird.

I hope someone can help you. I assume you've made sure you've got no firewall getting in the way, either Windows XP's own or ZoneAlarm or something? No router in the way?

I'm no netwrok expert I'm afraid, and never having seen this particular error before leaves me floundering I'm afraid.

Regards,

Pete

Just to show you mine if it helps at all.

WideClient.ini

[Config]

UseTCPIP=Yes

ServerName=Mainpc

Port=8002

Window=32000,32000,112,27

Visible=Yes

WideServer.in

Config]

UseTCPIP=Yes

Port=8002

Perhaps you need to change the order of things

Ahthat's at least more understandable.

The computer "GAME" most certainly seems to be not recognisable to the client computer, at least not on the Network that is being used here. Why that should be I really don't know. Do you actually see GAME listed in Windows Explorer, under "My Network Places" (probably inside "Entire Network"-"Microsoft Windows Network"-"").

Actually, come to think of it, are both computers in the same work group? Do they have the same name against "Workgroup"? In XP you can find that by right clicking on "My Computer" then selecting Properties, then the Computer Name tab.

If this is not it then I hope someone else has some ideas.

Regards,

Pete

Hey now that I have 2 bald spots on the sides of my head from pulling hair all this weekend I found the problem. For some reason my net card will only work if it is IPX. I switched the client to IPX and inserted the ServerNode and WOW everything works great.

Weird. It's usually IPX which gives problems. BTW I pulled all my hair out long ago!
