Version 34 Stable

Postby Grumpy » Thu Mar 14, 2019 2:00 am

For what this is worth....

Success!!!
Today we have 2 XP1130 pilots and 4 FSX guys.
Everybody can see everybody.

the following is what we have found that works FOR US

    Do not use a specific port.
    On startup of a NEW version, bring up the Hub List and select your preferred hub and press join.
    Only have to do THAT once after a new version.
    Go into the network permissions area and only allow a UDP pass through to JFS. It does not need tcp/ip

What more could one ask for? Kudos awards go to Pete.
Many Many thanks, Peter, for doing all this work.

Best wishes and congrats from the Team at Flybywires.net

It has been very stable for me as well. P3D Works great. How do you get XP11 to work in terms of showing other aircraft?

Thanks!

Just make sure you add some AI aircraft to the flight configuration in X-Plane and disable other multiplayer plugins such as XSquawkBox. You should see them then.

Thank you Peter will try that. Will it work if we disable plugins in the sim or do we need to remove the folders for like PilotEdge, XSB, etc. Looking forward to one day seeing CSL. Thank you for your work and dedication to this!!!

THATS what I forgot to mention, you need the AI traffic, one AI for every person in your flight group.

If you want to broadcast a recording to the others, don't you need a TCP pass through also?

No UDP only, using TCP/UPD will cause connection problems. I speak from experience :)

Hi Matt,

This relates the port forwarding settings within your router. I would advise try searching on youtube how setup forwarding for your specific router, as they are all slightly different how to access the security settings.
