"Unable to find you in an active FSOpen session"...

Every time I try to use Flight Strips to open a tower at an airport, it throws this error on start:

"Unable to find you in an active fsopen session. Make sure you are in a session and you may need to wait 1 minute after joining before starting flightstrips."

Any tips?

1. Be in a session.
2. Turn off any proxy server you might be using.

1. I am in a session. For over 5 minutes. As an ATC Tower.
2. I don't use any proxy servers.

Check with the admin on a server that your ip address for fsx matches the same as shown by http://whatismyipaddress.com/

Okay, looks like I found the culprit...

"whatismyipaddress.com" is showing me this IP address:
202.175.26.133

An admin on the server (finally got one that was free) gave me this IP address:
122.100.189.49

As you can see, they don't match!

What can I do to fix this?

PS. According to the flag under my name on the forums, my country isn't showing up right. That's not the flag of my country.

I have the same thing. Somebody said today it may have to do with a dynamic IP. I think if you just related the online check to the username instead of the IP address and then put a timer on a valid login or something so that you have to login to fsx and flight strips around the same time (to stop problems with people using the same username on different servers). I suppose this message is to anybody that reads it that had anything to do with the creating of flight strips. I was able to login to pilot assistant. I love all the software you guys make.
Thanks in advance. BlackIce.

OK, I have looked at this, I think the problem could become more common as the world runs out of ip addresses.

Version 1.74 will now log you on providing you use the same id in fsx as you logon to fsopen. e.g. if your userid for fsopen.

If your ip is matched however you can carry on as before.

Also your country flag should now be correct

Thanks! Flight Strips is finally working, and my FSOpen flag is correct! One final request - could you apply the same ID fix to Pilot Assistant? It's not as urgent as the fix for Flight Strips was, but it would be greatly appreciated if you could get it to work as well.

I will look at pilot assistant and see if it is possible.

You can use chat to make a flightplan with !f

I know "!f" files flight plans in FSX chat; it's just more convenient to file flight plans via Pilot Assistant because of the GUI as well as the ability for ATC to see your skill level.
