Wide FS connection problem


Recommended Posts

Hi Peter, I am having an issue with my connection to Wide FS. I installed it on my FS machine. I made the folder consisting of the exe and the ini file and attemp to connect. What happens is the client connects and then is immediatly disco'd and the process continues. In the log file it says that the connection is made ok but then is disco'd by the server. IN this case I assume the server is my desktop machine? I do have my FS folder and the APP folder shared on this machine.

I am able to see the map of all my machines and share files over my network at home. SO, I believe the network is right.

I also edited the ini to my desktop pc name and the TCP under protocol.

The client machine is a wireless laptop. I have also tried this with a wire and the same thing happens.

All it does is sit there and connect and then disco, all in about 1 second.

Can you help please?

Many thanks

Ok Peter, after some more looking. I have found that my floight sim folder is not allowing access to the remote (client machine) I have no idea why. I can share files and folders. but not the FS folder.

What a pain this is proving to be. Nothing I have tried to do works as it should.

WideFS doesn't care at all about file or folder sharing. that's for programs needing to access files. wideFs deals in FS data and does so directly, not via files.

I am able to see the map of all my machines and share files over my network at home. SO, I believe the network is right.

That's okay for Explorer, but not necessarily other programs. Their access may depend on your firewalls.

I also edited the ini to my desktop pc name and the TCP under protocol.

That shouldn't be necessary unless you insist on using different WorkGroup names.

Can you help please?

No, not without seeing the WideServer and WideClient logs. That is what they are for, to show us what is going on.

Regards

Pete

That is still irrelevant to WideFS, though it may prove fatal to some other programs you may wish to run on the Client.

Ok Peter, here are the files. It looked like I had 2 log files in the modules folder. I put them both here. Port error??

1326 Trying TCP/IP host "DAVIDZYCHOWSKI" port 8002 ...

1326Okay, IP Address = 208.69.32.145

That IP address is an Internet address, not one on your local network. That is the problem. In fact it appears to be an "OpenDNS" address as follows:

Hostname: 208.69.32.145

ISP: OpenDNS, LLC

Organization: OpenDNS, LLC

Proxy: None detected

Type: Corporate

Assignment: Static IP

Blacklist:

Geolocation Information

Country: United States us flag

State/Region: Virginia

City: Ashburn

Latitude: 39.0165

Longitude: -77.5063

Area Code: 703

Postal Code:

This is what Windows is being provided in return for being given the name "DAVIDZYCHOWSKI" to translate.

You either need to sort out your router so it gives corerect addresses, or specify the actual IP address in the Wideclient INI file. It might even work if you removed the ServerName and Protocol entries from the INI file and let the details from the Server work for you -- just make sure, as the documentation states, that your PCs are in the same WorkGroup. WideServer should provide the correct address, provided the local name is correctly translated into the correct IP address, which I believe it has been on other similar systems.

For further information, please see the additional data about this "OpenDNS" problem which has been added to the WideFS documentation (get Wideclient 6.81 from the Updates announcement for this), or see the other recent threads about it, such as viewtopic.php?f=54&t=80129 .

Hi Peter. Well, I read the threads and it makes as much sense to me as Japanese would. I am not at all savvy when it comes to this networking stuff. The fartherI get in it, the more confused I become. I did put the ip addr in the client ini flie. I am sorry to say that it still looks for the other ip. It ignores the ip in the ini. I also looked through all of the setup stuff in the router and cannot find what it would take to not allow the alt DNS. I really didn't find anything in there about it. I did find a bunch of stuff I have no idea how to use or what it does though :?: I will have to call D-link support I guess.

I did redownload the client from the FS9 section and started from scratch in a feeble attempt that maybe it would work. No luck.

Looks like I will not be networking ASE from my laptop with WideFS. :cry:

I have even less of an idea of how to solve this issue now than I did before.

Although there was a ray of hope that the ini edit with the ip addy would fix the issue it was quickly dashed when I fired up the sim and the client.

I appreciate your support and guidance. :)

WHOLLY CRAP, I GOT IT!

It was the DNS server causingthe issue like was inthe thread. I just had to dig a little to find that damn button!

Many thanks Peter!

Now I have to find why only certain files will share depsite the fact I shared them all.
