Peter, I could not delete the post I had on the forum, so am doing so now...I'll update the problem later---I think I have 2 different versions running with Server 6.78 and Client 6.86 (???) Stay tuned ! Thanks

I think I have 2 different versions running with Server 6.78 and Client 6.86 (???)

Shouldn't matter, but WideClient is now up to version 6.972. WideServer doesn't change much if at all, but WideClient has gone through a lot of updates because of its support for the developing Lua libraries.

See the Download Links subforum.

Regards

Okay, using WClient 6.94 and registered FSCUIPC, 3.999.

Client not connecting; please note that Firewall is inactive, and I'm able to use Aerosoft's avionics package on network...so assuming (ouch) network is ok.

#1 XP with FS and FSUIPC and WideServer

#2 Vista with WClient

Logs below.

Thanks for the look see!

2184 Trying to locate server: Need details from Server Broadcast

Have you changed the workgroup name in one or other of those PCs to make sure they are in the same workgroup, as pointed out early in the network configuring section in the User Guide? That's the part with a RED plea to at least read some of it! Vista and XP default to different workgroup names. The logs simply show that WideClient isn't receiving the broadcasts, and it certainly won't if the workgroup's are different.

An alternative, if you must have different workgroups, is to edit the INI to tell WideClient the name of the server and the protocol. This is also explained in the User Guide. Did you try ANY of the suggestions there at all?

Yes, the workgroups are the same name, and I have read the Guide to make sure all was set up properly, ala workgroup.

Nevertheless, the client is not seeing any broadcasts, so you need to double check.

Did you yet try to add the ServerName and Protocol parameters as I suggested and as suggested in the documentation?
