Weather Problems

Wed Mar 01, 2006 7:40 pm

Hi,

I can't download real world weather from jeppesen. I always get an error, that there is no internet connection or that I should check my configurations, but my internet connection works fine!

So my question is: can this be solved?

Thanks

Maxim

Which firewall are you using? You may have to tell it to allow FS9.exe to connect to the internet.

So much for that idea. I'm sure the Windows firewall wouldn't block FS. You could try disabling it before running FS for a few minutes and see what happens.

I get that error from time to time but not that often.
