How to connect my secondary computer (Widefs) with my main computer (FSUIPC7) on MSFS 2020


Recommended Posts

What is your issue? Have you read and followed the network configuration section in the WideFS User Guide? All the information you need is documented there, so please follow that.
If you still have problems with connections, try disabling your firewalls (server, client and router) and see if it connects then. If so, then enable the firewalls  one-by-one to see which is causing the issue, and then configure that firewall to allow the connection. Also try adding the ServerName (or ServerIPAddr) ini parameter to your WideClient.ini - again, see the documentation.

Note that you can also use FSUIPC7 on a client PC instead of WideFS / WideClient. This does not provide the same functionality as WideFS/WideClient (it will not communicate with the FSUIPC7 version running in the FS PC) so this depends on what you want to achieve on the client PC.  Instructions on how to set this up are in an appendix in the Advanced User guide.
