Hi,




Let us know what you come up with on the broadcast stuff.

Was the "broadcast fix" included in the 0.9.8 pre-release?

Recapping:

plib expects the string to be "<broadcast>" in netsocket.cpp line#80;

Simgear rejects either an explicit broadcast address xxx.xxx.xxx.255 or the
above string, preferring "broadcast" which it dutifully passes on to plib
which fails trying to resolve host named broadcast.



John, as I look at the code, I don't see anything that explicitely accepts or rejects any host names. However I do notice that "<" and ">" are special characters to the unix (and probably dos) shells. The shell will try to pass input from a file called "broadcast" as stdin to fgfs and send the output to whatever is after the ">". Try enclosing the entire option in double quotes to hide these characters from the shell interpreter ...


   fgfs "--native-gui=socket,out,1,<broadcast>,5504,udp"

You *shouldn't* need these for options included in your .fgfsrc file.

I'm not in a place where I can test if this actually works though ...

Curt.
