server issues

Just an ongoing issue that's only just been bought to my attention. When using my secondary machine to host the server, although I set real world weather, i sometimes get the winds but some times don't. Other users are getting winds at whatever degrees at 0knots, although the metar and atis shows the windds. The server also isnt interacting with FSCommander, well, it's showing traffic in the air but not on the ground. When I log onto different servers hosted by others, I don't have the same issue so it's a server issue on my end
Any ideas?

When you set real world weather your server goes and gets the weather from a file hosted by Jeppsen.

When users connect to you they just pick up the fact that real weather is selected and each machine then goes of to get its own copy from Jeppsen.

Since Microsoft stopped paying Jeppsen for providing this service some years ago its been reported that this has become unreliable and this is what might be causing the issue.

To check what weather has been loaded go into the map and only select the W icon for weather. Where you see arrows, this indicates wind direction and speed. If you see lots of squares with a diagonal line then no weather was loaded at this station.
