Thanks Mike but here is another question(gee, I sound like Gerry). When running the IvAp Configuration on the FSX computer, I can't put the IP of this, the Master PC, in the box labelled ' IP of Master Pc' as it is greyed out. I did everything asked for on the Slave but this has me stumped or shouldn't I worry about this because it is greyed out?

Assuming that you are using WinXP, Start/Run then type "cmd" (without the quotes) which should open a DOS box. Type "ipconfig" (again without the quotes) at the command prompt and you should get something like this: ========================================================== C:\>ipconfig Windows IP Configuration Ethernet adapter Wireless Network Connection 12: Connection-specific DNS Suffix . : home IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.1.64 Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0 Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.1.254 ========================================================== (This is an example from my non-flying remote pc). The IP Address of the pc that I ran ipconfig on is therefore 192.168.1.64 Yours will almost certainly be different!
