X-Plane 11 & Joinfs

Just purchased X-Plane 11. When I try to connect with JoinFS the simulator is "Orange". Simulator is running first, just not connecting with JoinFS. What am I missing here? I enabled the X-plane in the JoinFS options. Thanks Walt

Did you install the Xpuipc plugin? This must be installed for JoinFS to connect to the sim.

Good morning... NO I didn't. This X-plane 11 is new tome and I am just learning it. I usually use Prepar3dv4. Where do I get this Xpuipc plug in?

Put the ip address for my PC in the Xpuipc config file, saved it and I still get the IP address error when I start Xplane 11

Did you install the plugin using the button in the JoinFS settings?

It will only connect to X-Plane once you have loaded into the 3D part of X-Plane.

Is that right XPlane users?
I would have thought 127.0.0.1????

All set, I have everything working now. Able to connect X-plane 11 with JoinFS now. But that ip address 127.0.0.2 is working. So hope everything stays the same. Thanks everyone for your help. Still have a lot to learn with the X-Plane11 though. Maybe we can fly together in JoinFS some day.

I put the actual INTERNAL IP address of my flight computer in the xpuipc.ini. (In my case: 192.168.0.100) That fixed the error for me.
