Can't connect to server

Postby Josch » Sat Dec 10, 2011 8:02 pm

When I try to join a multiplayer server the map loads up on my browser but FlightGear does not open. I don't know if I'm doing something wrong or it's a weird glitch. I'm new to FlightGear and have never connected to multiplayer before. I'm running mac osx lion with FlightGear 2.4. Any help would be appreciated.

May be a stupid question, but does FlightGear work when you are not trying to run multiplayer?

It works fine in single player, it just doesn't initiate when I check the multiplayer box.

Assuming you use FGrun/the FlightGear Wizard, have you entered the server name (mpserverXX.flightgear.org, XX is the server number) and the in and out port numbers in the multiplayer box?

Yes and I've tried multiple servers.
