There are no facilities for networked axis controls simply because it really isn't a good idea. Any network latency wrecks precise control. Best to always plug them into the main FS PC, even if you need to use a longer wire.

If, despite it "not being a good idea", you want to experiment with axes on a Networked PC, it can certainly be done with a Lua plug-in placed in the WideClient folder. If you are interested I can make an example Lua program, which you would then need to modify to suit your specific device. It would be reading the joystick like a driver, accessing the raw HID (Human Interface Device) values.

I've now posted examples and a tutorial for this in the FAQ subforum.

Now in that Pdf it said that "You have to copy a script out of a forum". I'm particularly looking for a script for this situation and I can't seem to find one. If you can point me in the right direction that would be great.

Thanks in advance!

Sorry, which PDF? You've lost me I'm afraid. You seem to be continuing a thread from a couple of months ago which appears to not apply any more. I'm not sure what PDF was posted if one was, so I can't follow your reference.
