WideFS client not connecting

Hi,

Thanks for the ongoing support, I am also suffering the terrible stutters so await information/fix but in the meantime I'm having issues connecting the WideClient.

I'm running in an network environment and everything works fine in Prepar3DV5 and in V4.5. I added the required sections to the .key file - exactly as I used to activate WideFS.

My client network seeings are:

[Config]
ServerIPAddr=192.168.0.149
Port=8002
Window=282,74,886,589
Visible=Yes
ButtonScanInterval=20
ClassInstance=0
NetworkTiming=5,1
MailslotTiming=1000,1000
PollInterval=2000
Port2=9002
ReconnectMinutes=0
ResponseTime=18
ApplicationDelay=0
TCPcoalesce=No
WaitForNewData=500
MaxSendQ=100
OnMaxSendQ=Log
NewSendScanTime=50
Priority=3,1,2

When I run the client it just doesn't connect.

Are there any additional settings on the server PC or do I have to share any folders?

Should MSFS 2020 and FSUIPUC7.exe be run as admin?

Thanks, Chris

Can you check in the FSUIPC menu that WideFS is enabled?

There will be a WideServer.LOG in the FSUIPC7 folder, and a WideClient.LOG in the same folder as WideClient. Please show those.

Make sure you have no firewall blocking access. But no network access to folders is needed.

Doesn't matter -- just make sure they both have the same privilege level.

Pete,

Many thanks for the response.

Indeed, WideFS was not enabled and the reason was simple - I had left the <......> characters in the registration information.... 

Seems I was thinking in .xml mode or having a senior moment. In any case its fixed now. 😉

Just looking forward to ASBO (!) fixing the SimConnect.dll ........

Cheers, Chris
