Multiplayer Problem

Archived from groups: alt.games.microsoft.flight-sim (More info?)

I have a Dlink 614+ router. Whenever I try to a multiplayer session I get
disconnected within 1 minute of use. I am lost as to where to look to change
any settings.

Can anyone here help.

Thanks

    I don't have your router, but try this:
    http://support.dlink.com/faq/view.asp?prod_id=1550#604

    This shows how to set up a D-link router for the game "Call of Duty"
    and will walk you through the basics of opening ports. Of course, the
    "Call of Duy" ports are not going to help you in Flight Simulator: this
    is just to understand the principles.

    The specific ports that you need to open for multiplayer on Flight
    Simulator are:

    UDP UDP 6073

    Once you get that sorted out, you can use the Microsoft "Zone" servers,
    or you can get on board with one of the many FSHost servers. Get
    FSHostSpy and install it to learn what's out there

    If you're interested in flying online, you might also consider VATSIM
    http://www.ivao.org/hq/

    I haven't tried IVAO myself, but with the new SquawkBox 3 software that
    VATSIM uses, it's actually easier to get online with VATSIM than it is
    to set up the Microsoft multiplayer features, and voice is built-in.
    Before you jump in, you need to know that VATSIM and IVAO both try to
    simulate real air traffic control systems, so if you are not already
    familiar with these from the real world, you will need to spend some
    time studying the system before you jump in. If that appeals to you,
    I'd encourage you to skip the whole multiplayer setup and go straight
    to one of these networks. If you just want to fly around with other
    pilots, go with multiplayer.
