Bind FS Host to Hamachi VP IP address?
« on: February 12, 2008, 03:14:53 PM »

Is is possible to bind FS Host to Hamachi VPN address?  We use FS Host to host our Round-the-World race  and every year it is a struggle to get everyones ports opened up and all working.  It seems like Hamachi, which I use for another sim I run, would be a simple way for all users to get on teh same Hamachi network.

Thanks,

Hi,

Sorry, I have a feeling what you have in mind isn't really possible because of the way DirectPlay works.  DirectPlay is the networking part of DirectX, and is what Microsoft used for FS2002 and FS2004 (and is what FSHostClient uses to allow FSX to connect, since it sort of mimics FS2004).  All of the port stuff is controlled by DirectPlay and I don't have any control over it unfortunately.

Have you seen this thread here in the forums?

It might simplify getting everyone's ports tested at least.
