P3D version 4 does not support multiple connections from same public ip

Postby simskunkworks » Thu Sep 21, 2017 2:57 pm

Hi,
with some disappointment I found that P3D v4 multiplayer does not support multiple connections from the same public IP.
With previous versions it was certainly possible to have two different PCs connected to an external server on the same public IP.
The connection is possible but the one who enters last logs off the one who is already connected and often both get disconnected.
I have made some test using a VPN with the same result.
Can anyone confirm it?

Thanks for the info. But can someone confirm this or has this been addressed in the latest update?

As far i know it happens since v4.0, not in v3 and older versions.

We made an update to improve MultiChannel connection reliability. Currently multiple connections from the same IP aren't supported.

Will multiple connections from the same IP be added or updated in the next update?
