    Boeing Question about FSXPand

    Hello,,

    First of all I would like to say im sorry if this has already been answered on the forum.

    Anyway~ I am building a home cockpit and want to have 2 computers running 1 for the main game etc and another for running the instruments, I heard there is a program called FSXPand.., how easy is this to run and install. Also to have the two computers 'networked' what do I require? is it some sort of NIC (Networking Interface Card) or something like that?.

    ~Any help would be appreciated.

    Aidan,
    It will be a lot quicker for you to google setting up a network.
    You dont need any "special" equipment and it is pretty straight forward to set up a wireless network, although if you want to go wired (recommended) then you can use an Ethernet Switch, which is also pretty straightforward.
    I mean, if I can do, it then anyone can.

    PS. I tried FsXpand but didnt get on with it, it kept losing connection. There is also a cheap software suite from http://www.aerosoft.com.au/home/home.html
    This is for a 737 so dont think you want it, but worth a look.
    I use Prosim737 which will not be suitable for your needs, and is quite expensive.
