I've been doing some testing with the latest version 0.1.1.1. Prior to upgrading, I did receive the notification that an upgrade was available.
Ah, That's good to know.

This sounds like a piece of code hasn't complete what I've told it to do or is stuck in a loop.
I'm looking for it at the moment.

1. Join Group Server Mode (PTT - joystick button main computer, other computers PTT - key selected)
On initial startup, 3 computers, with app on, no freq set - When transmitting from RT computer (using PTT key) RX light stuck on other 2 computers. TX light on transmitting computer NOT illuminated. RX light did NOT timeout at all. Transmitting from the other computers, you could hear only on the computer without the stuck RX light. (the initial transmitting computer).
Power off on all 3 apps, RX light remained on. Restarted all 3 apps - TX and RX works. Changed freq to 123.450 and 118.750. No issues.
Might have just fixed the stuck RX.
It's nothing to do with the type of PTT being used, so don't worry about that.
I'm testing the fix at the moment.

When changing config and saving from your server to SCX, (app NOT restarted), App shows Voice Online - Green, SCX - Green. (Your server still shows in server box). Unicom 122.800 shows in Online ATC on all 3 computers. Transmitting from RT computer, RX light stuck on Main and LT computers. Same indications as above. Power off on all 3 apps, RX light remained on. Restarted all 3 apps, server box now clear, power on - Voice Online - Green, SCX - Green, No call sign in freq box (save each individual call sign). Unicom shows on all 3 computers. Tested on 122.800 all computers show in freq box and and test ok. Switched all apps to 123.450, no communication possible, and freq box empty, save each individual call sign on their respective computers.
Tricky one to explain this... but I'll do my best.
With SCX mode enabled...
If you are the channel host, you are added to the SCX list.
If you change freq or close the client, you are removed from the list.
To be removed from the list SIMCOM X looks for your IP and removes everything associated with that IP.
So if you have 3 clients running..
Client 1 hosts 123.450
Client 2 then connects, looks at the list, finds your IP already in the list and replaces that with Its frequency (let's say 111.222).
Client 1 is still hosting, but is no longer on the list.
Client 2 then tunes to 123.450, doesn't find it so hosts it.
Client 3 jumps in and does the same thing, resulting in 3 clients all tuned to 123.450 but none of them using the same server.
Basically if you are testing with 3 clients, use group mode and connect with internal IPs.

As above I'm hoping I've just fixed this and am testing.

Still unable to connect via external IP address even though my port 9988 indicates open. I'll have to check my friends computer to see if it is indeed open and I'll report back.
Hope the info helps,
Could be a NAT loopback issue were you can't connect to a service running on your LAN with your External IP.
Connecting with your Internal IP will work.
Asking somebody from outside of your LAN should also work, if the port is open and the program allowed in your firewalls.
I'm still working on a way to show users their port is accessable.
Thanks for the feedback, it helps a lot and hope I've explained what is happening.
