Yes the sim which also runs JoinFS is static. Just double checked.

Do I need to enable Local Port in settings? I have done this with no avail.

Thank you,

As an example, set your server machine IP address to static 192.168.0.10. Open the router settings and enable port forwarding, UDP-only, port 6112, IP address 192.168.0.10 and you should be good to go.

Make sure JoinFS is allowed through the Windows firewall.

That's all there is to it. There's a possibility that your ISP doesn't allow this kind of setup but that depends on your country and region.

Thanks Peter. Seems to be working ok. We are testing out 1.4.29. Happy to send you logs if you need it.

One thing we have noticed is sometimes the other pilots mention that my server shows the older version in orange even though I have updated to 1.4.29 for example and that is the only thing running.

I also notice sometimes pilots coming online and offline. They are running Join FS as Admin as well.
