    Re: 2nd computer

    Hi Mathias! Welcome to MyCockpit

    I don't run any of those programs so I can't say for sure, however, I am sure it will work. I ran a PIII 1GHz as a second computer for a while and it worked as a FSxPand client.

    The problem for people like us with off the shelf computers is that they are built cheap and almost impossible to expand. You might be better off buying a decent bare bones system that you can later add to as needed.

    As for connecting two computers, you can do it with just a cat-5 cable going between them. I use an inexpensive 4 port switch from Linksys. It works well and it faster than a router.

    Good luck, I hope this helps you.
