Getting station METAR whilst connected to ESJFS

I am not ATCT certified on VATSIM, however I do like to control on some casual servers using software called ESJFS. It presents itself as software to connect Eurocontrol to FSX or JoinFS, but it works with VRC.

The only problem I am having is that I can't get airport METAR and display the winds on my scope, using the F2 shortcut. I have tried to enable "Get Station MET every 15 mins" to no avail.

I seem to remember being able to get station METAR from a privately developed software for the late FSATC, which I cannot find...

Is there a way to set the METAR URL in the alias file or another config file, or is this not possible?

Thanks in advance!

VRC fetches METARs from the FSD server using the same connection that all the target data comes through. It does not use a URL, so no, that's not possible.
