FSHost and FSX on local machine - can not connect
« on: March 01, 2009, 02:16:21 PM »

I have looked through the forum but couldn't find any answer to this one.

I have FSHost and FSX on the same machine but FSX can not connects to FSHost session. I used local IP for direct connection but nothing happens

I can connect to the FSHost with another computer on the same LAN running FS2004.
Any suggestion would be highly appreciated.

I have no intention of going outside, I just want to be able to use mutliplayer between FS2004 and FSX machines at home.

Are you trying to connect FSX to FSHost?  That definitely won't work.  You need to run FSHostClient as well.  You connect FSHostClient to FSHost (either on the same PC or out on the internet), and then FSHostClient also talks directly to FSX through internal systems on the same PC.
