no connection WideFS and Wideserver


Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I have a problem with the connection between WideFS and Wideserver when running FSX.

This situation started after the update with the current installed version of FSUIPC(7.929).

I have on one PC ( WIN8.1) installed FSX and Prepar3D 2.1.

On the other PC ( WIN7) installed WideFS.

When I start FSX there is no connection and FSX is "waiting for clients" and WIDEFS is "waiting for connection".

No matter how long I wait, but there is no connection.

After that I close FSX and I start Prepar3d. Almost immidiatly there is a connection between WideFS and Wideserver.

 

I have attached the logs of FSX Wideserver, Prepar3d Wideserver and WideFS log.

 

In the log I have seen, that there is an error message after connecting to FSX. (10060)

 

I have tried several things to solve the problem:

 

rebuild widefs ini, rebuild fsx cfg, new default flight in fsx, reinstallation of fsx,  but no change at all!!!

 

Hopefully you can help me, because now I'm unable to fly with fsx and Prosim.

 

If you need more information, please let me know.

Regards,

 

Simon

I have a problem with the connection between WideFS and Wideserver when running FSX.

This situation started after the update with the current installed version of FSUIPC(7.929).

 

No updates to FSUIPC have changed anything relating to WideFS in many years.

 

I have on one PC ( WIN8.1) installed FSX and Prepar3D 2.1.

On the other PC ( WIN7) installed WideFS.

When I start FSX there is no connection and FSX is "waiting for clients" and WIDEFS is "waiting for connection".

No matter how long I wait, but there is no connection.

After that I close FSX and I start Prepar3d. Almost immidiatly there is a connection between WideFS and Wideserver.

 

Evidently you have something set incorrectly for FSX. Perhaps your SimConnect.xml is set to use the same port?

 

I have attached the logs of FSX Wideserver, Prepar3d Wideserver and WideFS log.

 

No you haven't. I don't think you can attach such files here. Best to simply paste their contents into your message.

 

In the log I have seen, that there is an error message after connecting to FSX. (10060)

 

After connecting? Error 10060 is the Windows error "connection timed out". That will be from the WideClient end. It is being blocked.

 

I have tried several things to solve the problem:

rebuild widefs ini, rebuild fsx cfg, new default flight in fsx, reinstallation of fsx,  but no change at all!!!Hopefully you can help me, because now I'm unable to fly with fsx and Prosim.

 

I am not surprised, because none of those things have anything at all to do with WideFs connections.

 

And because merely upgrading FSUIPC also has nothnig at all to do with WideFS connections, I think somethnig else has changed in your system since it worked. 

 

Additionally, WdeFS is EXACTLY the same whether on FSX or on P3D. Which is why I'm suspecting that the ports needed are being taken by something else on your FSx installation, possibly SimConnect or another add-on you've installed.

Hello Pete,

 

thank you for your quick reaction.

 

The Windows error occurs after starting FSX and after the moment I see the message "waiting for clients" and not after connection as I wrote.

 

I've tried to copy/paste the logs into this page, but I can't. Maybe I can send them by e-mail?

 

How and where can I see if there is a conflict with SimConnect?

It looks like something is blocking the connection.

I have installed the migration tool for Prepar3d to install  FSX add-ons into Prepar3D.

Could it be, that this package could block the connection?

 

With kind regards,

 

Simon

Odd. you're the third person to say they can't paste into messages. It is very odd. Please see this thread which I think includes an answer.

Only in the SimConnect.XML file -- you need to avoid ports 8002 and 9002. OR you can change the ports used by WideFS instead (both WideServer and Wideclient). BUT I think really it is more likely that you have installed something else on FSX and not on P3D which is doing it.?

 

Of course, you may have the firewall in Windows set to stop FSX.EXE but not Prepar3D.exe?

I would have thought it more likely that such a tool would mess up P3D, not FSX. Why should it do anything to FSX?

The clientlog stayed running from the moment I have started fsx, closing fsx, starting prepar3d until closing prepar3d
 

Pete I also have tried starting fsx with firewalls disabled with the same result.

I thought that the Estonia migration tool could possibly cause the problem is that is something I also recently installed.

 

Tomorrow I will give it a try with other port numbers.

 

With kind regards,

 

Simon

can you tell me where can I find the SimConnect.xml?

 

Same folder as your FSX.cfg, something like C:\<user>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\FSX. Whilst you are there check also the DLL.XML and EXE.XML files, tell me what other FSX applications are being loaded.

 

The logs merely show wat we know, that the FSX access is being blocked. If it isn't some sort of firewall I can only think it is some other application. The server just isn't receiving anything at all from the client. Since the code in FSUIPC4 is identical in both P3D and FSX -- they are the same modules and the Server part is 100% the same -- it must be something else installed.

 

The clientlog stayed running from the moment I have started fsx, closing fsx, starting prepar3d until closing prepar3d

 

 

Yes, I note that the Client log shows many attempts to connect to  "ERAZERSIM", IP Address = 192.168.0.140 but only the last one the successful one (to P3D I assume). The closing summary confirms this:

 

   291219 ********* Interim performance summary *********

   291219 Total time connected so far = 35 seconds

   291219 Reception maximum so far:  29 frames/sec, 4178 bytes/sec

   

35 seconds before 291.219 seconds would approximate to timestamp 256.xxx, which relates okay to that last connection attempt:

 

   254422 Server = ERAZERSIM

   254422 Trying TCP/IP host "ERAZERSIM" port 8002 ...

   254422 ... Okay, IP Address = 192.168.0.140

   254422 Connection made okay!

  

Pete
