Network & Widefs6 Newbie Help


Recommended Posts

Hello Peter and fellow users,

after more than 15 years of simming I finally got around to networking 2 PC's. Both are Winxp SP3 and from checking my network places the network was setup sucessfully :roll: Firewall completeley disabled on both machines and C drives are shared on both as well.

I have a belkin router and I believe my network is setup that way. I wanted to setup a direct connection but couldn't get passed the "a network cable is unplugged message"......I know, total networking newbie here, although I'm pretty "single-pc-savy". Either way, I can't get wideserver and client connected. Here are the log's:

Windeserver:

I'll stop here for now hoping it's obvious to the networking pro's as to what I'm doing wrong.

Thanks in advance,

You need a special cable to link PC to PC directly, one with the wires crossed over. Ask in the store for an EtherNet or Cat5 crossover or PC-PC cable.

That IP address looks like an external IP address, one on the World Web. Are you sure that's right? Most local PC networks use IP addresses beginning 192.168...., though I know there are less used alternatives. Maybe that router is setup incorrectly?

I would recommend setting fixed IP addresses in any case on all PCs on a local network, especially when used for FS, as it stops those intermittent blips in performance when Windows goes and asks for IP address data.

Thanks Pete. Your reference to the IP was the clue. I did have the network cable you suggested plugged in, but I still got the "a network cable is unplugged" message. That's when I assigned IP's to both server and client pc manually and voila!!!!

Thanks again, gotta go run all kinds of applications on the client ;-)

I bought a FSUIPC together with WIDE FS for FS2004.I need run of aircraft sounds on client PC.Is it possible ?

Not with WideFS. WideFS is a client extension of the FSUIPC interface. Any application which interfaces to FSUIPC and which doesn't need to be installed inside FS can be used on a WideFS client, but bits of FS itself, like the sound innards, can't be moved over. You could only do that sort of thing by having two complete installations of FS and linking them via either multiplayer or using Luciano Napolitano's "WidevieW".

Thank you Mr.Dowson,

here is a problem.I bought WIDEVIEW for scenery.I wanted to use sound for client PC,which is WIDEVIEW client,but WIDEVIEW on client PC switches off sound on that PC and no posibility to switch on.I asked about that from Luciano Napolitano,but he cannot help me.On server PC I have two sound cards.One for inside cockpit sounds,second for TEAMSPEAK,but I need engine sounds from outside my home made cockpit.Therefore I trying to find some solution.I bought one more PC only for sound,without WIDEVIEW,but do not know,how to do it.If have you some ideas,that helps to me.

Best regards,

Norbert

I expect he's using "slew" mode, which has no sound. I thought that was an optional way of operating. I've really not been near WidevieW for a long time.

On server PC I have two sound cards.One for inside cockpit sounds,second for TEAMSPEAK,but I need engine sounds from outside my home made cockpit.Therefore I trying to find some solution.

Best to use Teamspeak on the client in any case. FS sound routing is possible with a 5.1 or better sound system -- at least on FSX -- as the sound is located correctly for such effects.

I use pmSounds from Project Magenta for in-cockpit sounds, and Radar Contact on the same client PC.

Pete

yes,now I know,wideview on client pc is on slew mode,therefore no sound :( ,but you help me so much.on server have teamspeak and inside sounds use module from sim-avionics.only in the teamspeak is posibility to choose sound card for use,therefore I leave teamspeak on server,but move sim-avionics sound module to client,which will run without problem,and on server run engines.very easy,but only after your help.thank you very much Mr.Dowson ! :wink:
