joinfs Client - Web Links

Postby canuck21a » Sat Oct 21, 2017 6:20 pm

Hello,
I have managed to set up a joinfs hub that my fellow club pilots can connect to. Using DDNS I also have been able to set it up so that I can use the external URL to connect to thew joinfs session running on my LAN.

I have now also managed to get a running joinfs map on that same machine that runs joinfs.

I am now wondering if the PC client can be modified somehow to alter the two links so that the "Map" link would go to my map server and the "CIX VFR Club" could change to our forum/acars website.

Thanks for taking the time to read this,

Darryl Wightman

Hi Darryl,

thanks for using JoinFS.

I don't think it would be wise to do that in case of potential misuse of the link. For example, in the hub list, you can clearly see the website links as text before you choose to click on them, so providing some level of security. Is it not a simple case of just giving your group the URL of your map so they can add it to their browser favourites?

Not a problem Peter,
I was just thinking of ease of use for my fellow club pilots.
Yesterday and today the client link to "Map" is not getting to the default website; hence, my asking for an option.
I have already given them a link on our website.

No worries. I'd rather have lots of suggestions than too few. ;)

The map was probably down temporarily. It's kindly provided by ATC Roo and gets upgraded quite often.

Yup Storm Brian interfered with it and it'll be back after I've finished work.
