WideClient FS98 Eliminator - Waiting for a connection

Recommended Posts

I can't convince WideClient to connect with FSUIPC7 and MFS2020.

Wired LAN. MSF2020 running, flight loaded. FSUIPC7 working as expected on the server side. FSUIPC and WideFS registered via FSUIPC7 installer. Windows Defender firewall disabled on client and server. WideFS function enabled in FSUIPC7. Server name "BEATA-PIOTR". Issue persisting no matter if no server name specified, server name specified or IP specified (parameter names as specified in the manual). Both PC with Windows 10.

I checked on 2 other PC clients (Win7 and Win10) - WideFS connects. So seems like client side issue.

The Client log shows the reason:

2547 Error on client pre-Connection Select() [Error=10061] Connection refused

Seems you have a firewall protecting access to your MSFS PC. You need to either turn it off or create FSUIPC7 or WideClient as an exception. Sorry, I can't say how to do that specifically. I never have any firewalls on any of my sim PCs. they are just a nuisance.

Note that It's also possibly, but less likely, that the protection is on your client PC.

Strange thing... I tested from 2 other PCs. It connected. Then I returned to my main client PC and enabled the Windows Defender FW on it. And WideFS connected!

I believe you just triggered some telephatic command to the WideFS and it obeyed 😉

Thank you for your immediate response!

I can now continue with configuring Pilot2ATC...
