Cannot go Online Linux Version

Postby turtle » Fri Sep 09, 2011 8:49 pm

For some reason this GUI makes the game run beautifully on my Ubuntu 11.04 64 bit PC. The only downside vs. FGo! (other GUI) that I have is getting online. I get the multiplayer menu option in the menubar, but when I check the pilot list there is no one listed online. I did a test at the same time with FGo! and there was pilots online. I even asked them if anyone had been on for the last 10 minutes, and a couple of them responded "yes".
Graphics Command Line:
--multiplay=out,10,mpserver07.flightgear.org,5000
--multiplay=in,10,computername,5000

Any idea what might needed to be tweaked?

Operating System: Ubuntu 11.04 64 bit
FG Version: 2.4.0 Deb
Details: Network for FGRun - Not working; FGo! - working

Try removing "computername" from the --multiplay=in,... argument
--multiplay=out,10,mpserver07.flightgear.org,5000
--multiplay=in,10,,5000


More often than not "computername" doesn't resolve to a valid network interface IP address and makes FG fail to bind the socket to the required port. Hence, FG won't receive any MP data.
