Don't use squawkbox. It's unmaintained, Windows-only, and doesn't support AFV (new voice protocol), which means that even if you could get it to work, you wouldn't be able to talk, only fly.

Instead, use swift - the UX is somewhat confusing, but it works fine, it supports FG out of the box, and has native versions for OSX, Windows and Linux.

THE CAPS LOCK BUTTON IS THE ONE ON THE LEFT HAND SIDE OF YOUR KEYBOARD :)

In any case, check out swift:

@IbrahimSaazi and please don't post about the same thing in more than one topic... then give folks some time to respond... this is not a live discussion area like irc or discord where you also have to post your question and wait quietly for someone to respond...
"You get more air close to the ground," said Angalo. "I read that in a book. You get lots of air low down, and not much when you go up."
"Why not?" said Gurder.
"Dunno. It's frightened of heights, I guess."

I made some MP test flights with FG and P3D or FSX via own FSD server and Swift out of the VATSIM environment. All tests was with not optimal results. I was satisfied only with manual entered weather in both simulators. With live weather I never had same wind dir, speed or altitude. There was delay 3-5 seconds, FG2020.2.0 was too unstable for serious flying. Absence of the SID, STAR and procedures in FG is annoying, but I was able live without it on flat airports. I have Navigraph subscription for FMS data, I converted Level-D format for FG, but for less experienced users this is serious problem. LOC W 26 approach to Innsbruck in FG is very spectacular, especial with A320 family - FBW rulez over NGXu.
