WIDEFS7: Extending the IPC interface for Flight Simulator over a Network
WideFS is an optional addition to FSUIPC4* which extends the interface provided by that program to other PCs on a Network, so that you can run appropriate application programs on separate PCs using separate displays.
The WideFS system consists of two parts:
1. WideClient.exe, a program that on the one hand provides what looks like an exact replica of the FSUIPC or FSUIPC4 interface, fooling FS application programs into interfacing with it thinking that it is actually FS, and on the other transmitting these exchanges and receiving data back across the Network.
2. WideServer, a part of FSUIPC4, which services the messages and requests from WideClient so that FSUIPC4 can deal with them just the same as it does for local programs.
The package is therefore in two parts. You will need to download FSUIPC4.zip and WideFS.zip. The latter contains WideServer.DLL version 6 (which you don’t use with FSX), and a version 6 of WideClient.EXE, which is 100% compatible with FSUIPC4 and the WideServer version 7 it incorporates.
