#520842 This error comes direct from the network and indicates that you've buggered something up in your flightplan entry. (XSB doesn't validate flightplans at all - it just bundles up what you give it and gives it to the network).

If you want any assistance with this at all, you'll need to provide more information (such as what you're trying to enter into the flightplan, and what you set as your aircraft type during connection).

You may also want to read the VATSIM new pilot's guidance about flightplans as that may already cover what you're doing wrong.

This is what i fill out and it says it, this looks correct
By Christopher Collins 1304731
#520859 Then the error is in the flightplan itself (the only reason the connect box is important is aircraft type in the flight-plan comes from the connect box).

You'll need to share the flightplan details too.

It says it before i fill out my flight plan though but it might still have something to do with it

If you see this error when you try to connect and before you send a flight plan, then the flight plan would have nothing to do with it. Given that it appears you haven't made any connections to the VATSIM servers yet, my guess is that something in your login details is incorrect.

Nothing looks amiss in the information we can see in your screenshot of the Connect window. The only thing we can't see, of course, is your password. Are you copying-and-pasting the password from an e-mail? If so, I recommend you type it manually. To my knowledge, your password should never contain any non-alphanumeric characters - such as a ':' (colon).
