WideFS - Keeps waiting for a connection


Recommended Posts

Hi,

I'm a long time user of WideFS but now I encounter a problem.

Recently I reinstalled my FS2004 PC, migrating from WinXP x32 to Win7 X64.

In the past I have reinstalled several times my OS/FS2004 and all I had to do was to change the IP address in the Wideclient.ini

Somehow now I encounter a problem, causing WideFS not to connect to FSUIPC anymore.

I don't have a clue why...

WideClient PC: Win7 X64, Fixed IP: 192.168.1.79

FS2004 PC: Win7 X64, Fixed IP: 192.168.1.76

On both systems the Windows firewall is turned off.

I can ping on both systems to the other PC, they find each other.

If I recall correctly in the FS2004 title bar there should be a message 'Waiting for Clients' (or something)

In my current FS2004 this line is not showing.

Please advice

Here my Wideclient.ini

You shouldn't even need to do that provided both PCs are in the same WorkGroup. For many years now the Server has sent out identification messages so that the Client can find it automatically.

If I recall correctly in the FS2004 title bar there should be a message 'Waiting for Clients' (or something)

In my current FS2004 this line is not showing.

If it is not showing, then WideServer is not running. Did you remember to put WideServer.DLL into the FS Modules folder?

It seems significant that you show the Client log and the FSUIPC log, but no WideServer log!?

Regards

Pete
