OK all deleted. Should have been done years ago!
Anything worth making sticky? (no dirty jokes please ...
The only simple suggestion I can think of, for a quick, easy connection, using one of the many FS Host Multiplayer Servers, is to read through this...>>>http://www.chocolatesoftware.com/
Two small installations required:
FS Host Spy; for FS 2002/FS 2004 and FSX. To obtain a list of all the various Server's IP Addresses, and who is on-line at the time.
In addition, for FSX; FS Host. To enable connection to one of the selected Servers, using their IP Address.
(FS 2004 can be connected directly, via the Drop-down Multiplayer Option within FS 2004).
Put both Icons on the Desktop for instant access before a flight.
Note!: For a group Fly-in, (two or more), all parties will require pre-arranging
with each other, a time, a place, and IP Address in advance!
Alternatively, select an Address with a Pilot(s) already on-line, and politely request to join the flying session.
Installing "Plan-G" will show all Multiplayers, in a moving map, flying in the selected area.http://www.tasoftware.co.uk/
You will know when your connection is successful, by the appearance of the Chat Window within the Flight Sim!
"Teamspeak" correspondence is another option, requiring a Microphone..and Headphones (Headset). http://www.teamspeak.com/?page=downloads
Whatever option you go for, the Flight Sim World is waiting for you...ON-LINE!
