Network connection problems (attached files)
« on: June 09, 2015, 09:37:36 AM »
Hi
i am trying to get Plan G working on my networked laptop (Win 7) with FSX on my main PC (Win 8). My Ipconfig settings are at attached Capture jpeg and my Plan G setting are at Capture 2. My Simconnect.xml file is:

 <?xml version="1.0" encoding="Windows-1252"?>
<SimBase.Document Type="SimConnect" version="1,0">
<Descr>SimConnect</Descr>
<Filename>SimConnect.xml</Filename>
<SimConnect.Comm>
<Disabled>False</Disabled>
<Protocol>IPv4</Protocol>
<Scope>global</Scope>
<Address>192.168.0.1</Address>
<MaxClients>64</MaxClients>
<Port>4508</Port>
<MaxRecvSize>4096</MaxRecvSize>
<DisableNagle>False</DisableNagle>
</SimConnect.Comm>
</SimBase.Document>

I cannot get a connection. I realise my IPV4 address has an extra number on the end, but everytime I put that into my Plan G settings, it crashes.

I would most appreciate if someone could look at the attachments and see if I am doing anything wrong.

Many thanks for any help.

John

You've specified the address of your router (the default gateway). Since that isn't either the FS computer or the Plan-G computer, it won't ever work.

You also don't say which PC the IPconfig was taken from. The IP you specify in both the Simconnect.xml and the Plan-G connection dialog is the IP of the FSX PC. The Simconnect.xml file must be located in C:\Users\<Username>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\FSX. On the FSX PC.

You've also specified a port number of 4508 in the Simconnect.xml file, but 4503 in the connection dialog. The port numbers must match.
