Callum,

Check your hosts IP address. If these are not static, they can change regularly.

Have you allowed sufficient time for it to connect, it can take a while. If you are getting the ip off the sessions list or/and website, that can't be the issue.

I give it as long as it takes but after a few mins of trying to connect it comes up with the error.

Oh dear... Have you tried different IP's? Go on the sessions list tab and have a try

Callum,

Make sure you have both service pack one and two installed or you have acceleration pack installed.

Brilliant, Its a common step that people miss out when reinstalling FSX.

A side note however to all who read this post, please check around the site to see if your question is answered anywhere before asking on the forum.

Chances are your question is either so often asked and is therefore displayed on a page somewhere. If its not, use the search bar to have a look through the forum posts to see if anything has already been mentioned.

I personally, cant speak for anyone else, do not have a problem answering these questions for you but it takes time for one of us to see the post. If you have a look around first your problem will be resolved so much quicker!

The answer to this particular question is at the very top of the sessions list itself - You will need FSX service packs one and two or acceleration to join these games.

Just makes it easier for you

Regards

I have a different problem, I'm hosting a session which is shown on the sessions page on a 2nd computer. problem is i can't connect with my main computer. It keep timing out.
Is it possible to host on 1 and join in the session on another?

Yes, make sure they're both service packed or running acceleration and ports on the server machine are open on your firewall.
