Hello Chris,
It is ages since I had this issue, perhaps 10 years. Are you trying to connect to another server/session? It sounds like you may have FSX correctly set up but I\'m guessing that you may need to configure the firewall on your PC as well as your network router.

Whatever OS your PC has, and the model of router means that there are lots of variables so I cannot comment specifically on your set up. I do however recommend a search engine query and I would put money on it that YouTube will have a video/tutorial that will help you.

Thanks for the advice Derek. I can find load of u-tube videos asking for connection issue help but no real answers. MY operating system is WINDOWS Home Vista 32 bit. My router is D-LINK DSL-3780. Note that I can connect with other FSX servers listed on FS Host spy via FS Host client. But can\'t connect to the realfsx sever on IP 97 89 8 204 via multi=player Direct connect. Does any of this information allow you to close in on my connection issue please. Thanks for your time

Hella again Chris,
Not being familiar with Vista I cannot comment on that OS (I use Windoze 7). Why you are unable to connect to that server, I cannot say, I have no problem connecting to that server.

You say that you can connect to other servers but not RealFSX, have you been able to connect to them previously? If so, and you cannot now connect, try contacting their server admins to see if there may be a reason for you now not being able to connect.

All I can say at this point is that I have had to set a rule on my router to get it to allow traffic through its firewall. You might want to search for that router and there will probably be a series of lists detailing exactly how to allow your PC/application/game to get through.

I am sorry if this sounds vague but with so many OS\'s, versions of FSX, routers, and so forth there are many, many variables and I can only draw from my own system.

At this point do Google again for this issue, it is surely out there. Also, check your PC\'s firewall, and also your router\'s firewall.

If all else fails look me up on FB or UK317 and PM/e-mail me.
Regards,
Derek H.

Chris,

You said that you could connect to other servers. Were they servers on the fsopen list or others?

Do you have the steam version of FSX or the boxed version? All the servers on this site are FSX boxed versions and are not compatible with the steam version.

if you have the boxed version please join the RealFsx teamspeak3 server for more help resolving the problem. There\'s a TS3 link on the session page for you to connect.

Best regards

Hello Joe I cannot connect to ANY fsopen servers but can connect to all servers listed on FSHostspy\'s list of servers.

I have the boxed version of FSX (not Steam)

Thanks for your time

Hi Derek I have never been able to connect to RealFsx but have tried many times and searched half the web for connection solutions. I am grateful for your assistance and will search the second half of the web until I find a solution
