Multiplayer connection problem!

Postby jeanluke23 » Sun Feb 24, 2013 1:29 pm

I'm new here and also in Flightgear simulator. I've got some problems to get online on the multiplayer the last few days and at the moment I really can't connect anymore. In fact I'm running a Macbook and Flightgear 2.10. The problem is that every time I wake up my computer this, changes the IP address. So when I try to get online Flightgear doesn't search my new IP and obviously my connection activates only for about 20-30 seconds. Now, in the previous Flightgear versions I know that in the Flightgear launcher, in the network section there was a space to enter the IP. Now, in the 2.10 version I can't anymore enter it. So I searched on the internet and I found that I can enter this in "Others" section:


This worked a couple of times but now I can't get on the multiplayer anymore. What should I do? What is my mistake? Thanks!

Can you change the Mac so that it doesn't change the IP each time you turn it on?

I would say the same, you can assign a static IP number if it is in your local network. Or even set the dhcp server to assign always the same IP number to the same interface.
