View Full Version : How to connect to the simulator from a remote computer.
Could you anybody let me know how to connect to the simulator from a remote machine?
I created a file, named SimConnect.cfg as follows and saved in "My Documents:
I did this according to the SimConnect documents. But the OpenAndClose example does not connect.
I really appreciate it if anybody could help.

I'd also greatly appreciate some reply here for I can't get it to work either. I also had a search on other forums, tried all the hints that worked for others but they do not work here so I am quite a bit frustrated at the moment.
Thanks in advance.

Below are my working simconnect.cfg (client) and simconnect.xml (server).
Note the use of IPV4, not V6 as that seems to require a special IP stack (new network card driver). Also, replace the IP address with the IP of the server (DNS name didn't work for me). Also, I had to set my scope to global to avoid pesky security issues.
(simconnect.cfg in my documents on client PC)
(simconnect.xml file in Documents and Settings\<alias>\Application Data\Microsoft\FSX folde on the server)
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="Windows-1252"?>
<SimBase.Document Type="SimConnect" version="1,0">
Hope this helps.
