Recommended Posts

For years using fsuipc and widefs no troubles. In the past 1/2 year the remote pc will; not connect to the fsx pc.

I have try`d everything I found on the internet ( I think) but the results are the same no connection.

You mean WideClient..INI I think.


If thast is the correct IP address then you also need to sepcify the Protocol -- please see the WideFS documentation about configuring. You either omit both Server and Protocol details, letting the automatic system link the two, or you specify both server details (name or IP address) and the protocol to be used. If either are omitted then WideClient tries to locate the Server automatically, and that depends on Broadcasts being allowed.


Broadcasts ARE allowed on all Windows versions since WinXP SP1, provided that both PCs are in the same Workgroup. This too is explained in the documentation. Please see the part about configuring the system, the part with the red section asking you to at least read the first few parts.

You mean WideClient.log.


The client is only one end of the link! The Server runs on the FS PC, and there is a WideServer log which tells us what is going on that end.


I see the Client did actually connect using Broadcasting, (not your ServerIPAddr parameter):

However the fact that the Server then closes the connection immediately appears to indicate that something else on your Server is using the same Port (8002) for other things and so doesn't recognise the Client's requests. This is the only explanation I can think of for a spontaneous closure. The Server log, which you've unfortunately not supplied, would be relevant there.
I think you should look for other Networking programs which may use that Port -- perhaps you've configured SimConnect to use it? Either change that, or change WideFS, to use another port.

thx pete for the fast reply.Where do I find the severlog file??


As with WideClient's log, the WideServer log file is next to the program which makes it -- i.e. FSUIPC4.DLL in the Modules folder. Everything to do with FSUIPC is in at folder.



You are right porrt 8002 is in use by a prog. I found portchecker to find out. But i do not wich port i can use insted of 8002


Try 8003, 8004, etc, whichever is not used. You'd need to change it in both Wideclient.INI and in the [WideServer] section of FSSUIPC4.INI. Details are in the documentation, as usual.
