WideFS not connecting


Recommended Posts

Since I updated to FSUIPC 4.927a my wideFS is not working.

Sincerely,

Jeremy Laporte

 

There is no change in WideFS with any release since a long time ago. What was your previous version?

 

Which log or info would I need to provide for help getting this issue resolved?

 

Oddly enough it would be the ones called WideServer.log on the Server and WideClient.log on the Client. Show me those please.

Nevermind Pete,

 

Yesterday when the problem happenned I rebooted the computer 2/3 times and it was still not working.

Today when I tried to get the log everything was working fine!!

 

Don't know what was wrong yesterday but I did not change anything and it is working now. Thank you for the support nonetheless.

Ok Pete,

 

Once again I tried to fly and same problem Wide client does not connect. The only difference compare to my test session that I plugged into my FSX computer my Saitek Yoke and Throttle quadrants and a USB headset.

Here is the Wide server log of a test I ran just after my flight:

********* WideServer.DLL Log [version 7.927a] *********
Blocksize guide = 8192 (double allowed)
Date (dmy): 29/12/13, Time 20:12:30.106: Server name is FSX
    16052 Initialising TCP/IP server
    16052 Initialising UDP/IP server
    16130 Broadcasting service every 1000 mSecs
    71869 Closing down now ...
Memory managed:  Offset records: 29 alloc, 28 free
Read buffer usage:  0 alloc, 0 free, max in session: 0
Write buffer usage: 0 alloc, 0 free, max in session: 0
Throughput maximum achieved:  0 frames/sec, 0 bytes/sec
Throughput average achieved for complete session:  0 frames/sec, 0 bytes/sec
********* Log file closed *********

 

Surprisingly I do not have a wideclient.log I start Wideclient but no file with log appears.

 

Any idea what is going on? I used to have my Saitek products before without problem (no updates)

 

Sincerely,

Jeremy

Hi,

 

make sure you have in WideClient.ini file this line below [user]

Log=Errors+

 

If you run Vista or Win7 you will face those problems when e.g. the network setup was done with internet connection because windows sees the network as Private but next time you disconnected from internet on PC start the network setup will change to Public and so many things are blocked. If you then connect internet and start again, everything is working fine (Windows magic).

Hello Thomas,

 

Thank you so much for your answer. Nonetheless I have a little bit of difficulty to understand what I need to do.

 

Do I have to disconnect the internet on my Laptop with WideFS client (Vista) and then reconnect the internet? Or do I have to do something on my FSX computer (win 7).

 

My FSX computer is connected to my router through an ethernet cable while my laptop is through wireless. I do have both computers on the same network though because on FSX I have active sky next and on laptop I have PFPX and have them share some folders so I can use ASN weather with PFPX and then import the flight plans straight to my FSX.

 

Thank you for clarifying what I need to do and I will add the line in the ini to get the wide client log if needed.

 

Sincerely,

Jeremy

 

Also happy new year to everbody on the forum

Hi,

No. It is just to know if you did the setup while having internet connection the same setup will not work proper when you start next time without a internet connection because Win change the Network type from private to public and block some stuff.

My FSX computer is connected to my router through an ethernet cable while my laptop is through wireless. I do have both computers on the same network though because on FSX I have active sky next and on laptop I have PFPX and have them share some folders so I can use ASN weather with PFPX and then import the flight plans straight to my FSX.

Make sure you have both in the same workgroup and the IP's are fixed set.

You are looking in the wrong place, then. WideClient always produces a log.

 

Please read the section in the WideFS user guide about configuring your network. You may need to specify the Server name or IP address and the Protocol.
