Waiting for connection


Recommended Posts

I've got a problem with Widefs not being able to connect to server.

I have a pc with Flightsim FS9 and a registered version of FSUIPC and Widefs. It runs on Windows 8.1

On a second PC, also with Windows 8.1, I have Apollo Airmap, Flight Sim Manager and FSMap. Until a few weeks everything was working fine. But now Widefs can't connect to the server, so Flight Sim Manager and Airmap are not working anymore.

I checked Firewall (McAfee) and even removed it. I also removed Airmap, but stil no connection. The strange thing is that it worked alright for a long time, so I did some other tests.

I installed Widefs and FSMap on my laptop and there it works fine. So the server works alright and there is a connection between the Flightsim PC and the pc with FSMap. But what is blocking Widefs? Is there anyway to check the connection between Widefs server and client?

I hope anybody can help me.

Cheers,

Wouter

Hi Pete.

Here are the files. As you might notice, my PC's have names: the FS pc is called 'Slechtvalk'(peregrine falcon), the client pc = Firefly and the laptop= Mosquito.

I hope it helps you to solve the problem.

Okay. From the look of it the Server broadcasts simply are not being received on the Client. That maybe because the FS PC and Client PC are on different workgroups -- you can change one to match the other, or simply put the ServerName and Protocol parameters into the WideClient.INI file on the Client, as described in the part of the WideFS documentation which has the RED instruction urging you to read at least some of it -- i.e. configuring the network.

 

By having the server name and protocol defined in the INI file the Client doesn't need to wait for any broadcasts from the Server, so it can be more efficient too. The broadcast method was only added to make it simpler most of the time.
