through the router to the server?
Here's some info:
I'm running a PC at home with a dial up connection. AMD Athlon 900 MHz, 512 MB RAM, 40 GB HD, 128 MB Radeon 9200 video card, Conexant SoftK56 Data, Fax, Speakerphone PCI modem.
WIN 98 SE, Norton Antivirus 2003. Orbiter 2005 Space Flight Simulator and Virtual Mission Control server V2.
My problem comes using the VMC server, which, you may want to know, is used to simulate telemetry from Orbiter SFS. No body has been able to connect to my server, although I have no problem connecting to other people's server.
First, someone suggested that I check for a firewall in my system. None. Then another person said there might be a "router" in my ISP. I called them and they said the router is there, but it shouldn't be a problem. (That's what they said.)
I have checked my IP address in several ways. Software, whatismyipaddress.com, sending e mail to myself, etc. All report the same IP address, but when someone wants to conect to me they get a message saying that IP does not exist.
I don't know if this is enough information. I hope I can find someone here who could help me.
