Thanks for this Paul. Shalln't be able to test it for a couple of days as I am very busy sheparding SWMBO through recovery after hip replacement surgery. Will let you know how I get on.

The method I used is in the attached pdf.

I make no guarantees of success though.

I will be watching this spot Paul for a detailed step by step tutorial on
how to get IVAO going on a network with FSX <VBG>

As I'm sure you are aware, Dennis asked if anyone had successfully run
an IVAO connection for FSX over the network.  I tried for the best
part of two days and failed.

Today though, I got it running.  Having said that, IVAP did not close
down properly when I quit, a minor issue I can live with.  I'll
hopefully get to do a longer IVAO test this evening to see if comms.
etc. function fully.

What changed?  I've got the Acceleration Pack installed so have the
updated
SimConnect files running.

This means when I hit the Connect button on the remote machine it
actually finds FSX now having the correct IP for the local machine in
the SimConnect.xml file. This also now sees FSUIPC remaining active,
pre-Accel. Pack it would become disabled.

Having only installed it today, I've not fully evaluated it but so far
so good. Frame rates (I know you'd ask) seem up a tad though I can't
compare like with like since I've not used FSX that much anyway.  It
certainly flies smoothly with reasonable control response. I've been
having great fun buzzing around poles in the Nevada desert a la Reno
air racing, one of the new missions.

I'm running XP not Vista hence the DX9 upgrade route.

As for add-ons, I only have Scotflight scenery, Flight Club and Bones'
Tiger
Moth installed.

So far I've not noticed any problems with the add-ons or scenery (Moth
shows
correctly Bones).  I'm not saying they're not there, I just haven't seen
any.  The change to the water effect, as Frank T. (?) says, is stunning.

I Hope that helps.

Paul
