WideClient Will Not Stay Connected


Recommended Posts

Hello,

I just purchased FSUIPC4 and WideFS today for FSX and WideClient will not stay connected. It briefly connects (for approx. 1 second) and then says waiting for connection. I have FSUIPC4 registered with they key for WideFS as well on a Windows 7 Home Premium machine and WideClient on a Windows XP Pro SP3 machine. Both firewalls are turned off, and I made sure that Homegroup wasn't enabled on the Win7 machine. I double checked that both computers belong to the same Workgroup. The following is my WideClient.ini:

I have tried using the IP address as well as specifying the Server Name but get the same results.

Thank you for your support.

781 ... Okay, IP Address = 67.215.65.132

This looks like another case of the router providing a weird Internet address instead of your correct Server address. In this case that IP address appears to belong to

Hostname: hit-nxdomain.opendns.com

ISP: OpenDNS, LLC

Organization: OpenDNS, LLC

Proxy: None detected

Country: United States us.png

State/Region: California

City: San Francisco

Latitude:37.7645

Longitude:-122.4294

Area Code:415

I have tried using the IP address as well as specifying the Server Name but get the same results.

Where's the log showing the correct IP address? The problem shown in your submitted log is most definitely down to some router or switch setting.

Please see the WideFS Technical guide, included in the WideFS.ZIP, and in particular this paragraph

10. DNS systems sometimes give weird Internet IP addresses instead of the correct ones for your Server PC

which you'll find in the Notes for trouble-shooting section.

I apparently had two computers with the same name (they were both Win7, so maybe it allows it)

But the two computers involved in the test you showed logs for were named "JUSTIN-PC" and "TABLET".

... and had to remove my OpenDNS section from my router, then physically unplug it.

And plug it in again, I hope?

Between that and changing the computer names, the software works great.

Good.

Regards

Pete
