#526467 Hey everyone!
Brand new to VRC... Trying to get it set up to connect to sweatbox. I have added a file with sweatbox.vatsim.net SWEATBOX in it and placed it in VRC program files. When I start up VRC, I get a notification that says "Could not retrieve server list from network. Using the cached server list and user-defined servers" When I go to connect to network, sweatbox is not an option. However, I'm still able to connect to the regular vatsim network. (USA-W). Any suggestions?

When you say you have added "a file" -- what is the name of that file? It MUST be "myservers.txt". If you believe that is the case, I would suggest you perhaps go into your file viewer and click the "Organize" menu item, and the drop-down item called "Folder and search options" and the tab called "View", and UN-check the option called "Hide extensions for known file types". You might find that your filename is actually "myservers.txt.txt". Fix that and you should be good.

This, at present (version 1.2.4), is normal behavior.
