Networked setup

Someone else will confirm this, but I think the problem is logging in twice with one CID. VATSIM doesn't care if your computers are networked, all it cares is how many times an individual controller logs in at once.

 

I saw a program somewhere that allows you to use a networked computer as a secondary monitor. I don't remember what it's called or where I saw it, but try looking for it on google or something.

I run two monitors off a single PC with one connection. On the main monitor is the radar, on the second monitor is the flight strips, chat boxes, tower view etc. My video card has dual monitor outputs. I can also open a second radar window if needed off the same session.

 

I have 3 PC's but have never attempted to run more than one connection (either as controller or pilot) at once.

 

I have thought about the "what if's" before such as if my neighbor came over the house and wanted to control side by side with me or him fly and I control...etc etc. So far those what ifs never materialized.

Also my son is a VATSIM member (has own PID) but is not allowed to connect when I am on as we share the same IP through a router. Thankfully he is nowhere as active as me

Multiple connections through different VATSIM IDs used by different people from the same IP are perfectly fine, you and your son can be on together anytime you like.

 

The key "no-no" is connecting multiple times under the same VATSIM ID, or, worse, registering an additional VATSIM ID to use yourself (our membership department has gotten very good at catching them, and doing so will earn you a vacation from VATSIM). Don't do it.

Ya unfortunately with two computers already side by side I don't have anywhere near enough desk space for a second monitor on the main system so that's why I was hoping there could be a networked option, with only the main system actually connected to Vatsim and the client system just networked for the flight strips and all that to display on it.

Thanks for the clarification Now if I can just pry him from the war games he plays online (while texting on the cell phone and cranking the ipod) and have him sit behind the scope or behind the controls of a Cessna....now thats a challenge!

David,

 

If you absolutely need a networked setup then you have to use Euroscope. Euroscope allows a proxy connection through the 1 main connection so you can use as many screens and computers as you like. Perhaps this is a feature that will be added to VRC in the future as it can already connect to a second computer for tower view using just one connection to Vatsim.

 

 

 

Mark.
