Could it be you had the IVAO port (6810) forwarded to the wrong machine?
I'm running IVAO on a single PC so can't check which one would need it

Thanks for your prompt response.  However my own experience over the
last couple of hours doesn't mirror your own:

- I HAD to install the MTL software (although not any aircraft) on the
non-FS PC in order to get the User Interface running without errors.

- With both Network Interface and User Interface on the non-FS PC, I
could not get a MP connection (and, yes, I had the correct IP addresses
in the config dialog box).  As soon as I moved the Network Interface to
the FS PC, all the lights and bells flashed and rang and I had my MP
connection OK.  I confirmed that I was able to connect to the IVAO
servers, and I even got a message from my firewall asking if it was OK
for TS to connect, so that's encouraging too.

Clearly what worked for you didn't for me, but I seem to be getting there.
