Clients can't get data from the FS 2004.


Recommended Posts

Hi !

I have three computers connected in a smae network. Each of them with a fixed IP. They are:

PC 1- FS 2004 ( with FSUIPC and wide FS, last version );

PC 2- Project Magenta Reginal Jet Panel (with WideClient last version);

PC 3- Project Magenta Instructor Station (with WideClient last version).

the FSUIPC and the Wide FS are registered and have always worked very well. Suddenly, the PCs clients stopped receiving data from the FS 2004. I have already updated the versions of the Wide FS, Wide client and FSUIPC but the problem remains. I checked the network and it is OK. In the FS 2004 there is the information that the client is connected. In the Wide FS of the clients there is also the information they are connected but in practice, the clients can't get data from the FS 2004.

As a test in the server, we ran FS Metar. The FS Metar can download the new Metar but it can't conect to the FS.

What do you advise ? What shall I do to the clients get the information from the server as happened before ?

Thanks,

Elisio Cruz

I really do always need VERSION NUMBERS. The term "last version" is meaningless. I've had folks saying they're using the "latest" version and it turned out to be a year old, but was the "latest version they'd seen". It isn't hard to find the version numbers -- they are displayed in the options, in the logs, in the documentation and even in the File Properties Version tab!

the FSUIPC and the Wide FS are registered and have always worked very well. Suddenly, the PCs clients stopped receiving data from the FS 2004.

Unchanged, and with no other changes, software doesn't suddenly stop working or change its behaviour. You need to try to think what you changed then. Something you changed did it -- or else a hardware fault has developed.

In the Wide FS of the clients there is also the information they are connected but in practice, the clients can't get data from the FS 2004.

Show me the WideClient, WideServer and FSUIPC Log files. Make sure everything is closed down first, though.

Thanks, Pete !

The only one new software installed was NERO 8.

Please see attached the LOGS.

Okay. The main problem is that either your FSUIPC or your WideFS key is invalid. Was one or the other a time-limited one for evaluation? Project Magenta customers are often afforded that luxury, one which I don't subscribe to.

Otherwise, there are only two possibilities: either one or both of the keys are invalid by reason of being generated by an illegal pirate key generator, or the date on your FS PC is incorrect, making it look as if one or both keys were issued later than today's date (according to Windows). This latter can happen if the little battery maintaining your PC's CMOS memory settings has expired.

There's a further problem in that the name of your server PC. "fs" is not being resolved on your client PC:

3074 Trying TCP/IP host "fs" port 80 ...

3074 Error on client gethostbyname() [Error=11001] Host not found

What concerns me here is that mention of Port 80. Why have you set WideFS to use port 80? The default is port 8002 -- port 80 is normally reserved for regular internet or email activities as far as I'm aware. The default of 8002 was chosen deliberately well away from any default ports.

The fact that WideClient is searching for a specific server by name is a little odd too. By default, as supplied, WideFS should be self-configuring. You only need to mess about with servername parameters and the like if you are using mixed systems (win98/NT/2000 with XP/Vista) or you have your PCs in different workgroups (unusual and not recommended).

[LATER]

I just noticed! The WideServer log shows the date as "01/01/02". That's your first and main problem, I think!

I'll need to start logging the PC's system date in the FSUIPC log I think. There have been several cases like this -- usually folks with a new PC which they've not bothered to set up correctly yet!

Regards

Pete
