The connector software is a IVAO tool which enables you to connect several clients while having only one IVAO connection.
This connector is primarily used to provide a secondary view to pilots or ATCs such as Tower View to ATC.
Be reminded that the secondary view can only display traffic in a limited range in function of the position of the primary connection.
When you launch the connector application, you will find this window like the image below:
You must type the server address manually like the image below:
Note: This server will be used for the primary connection only.
If there is any connection error, the connector application will display the error message like the image below:
When this error occurs, please verify the server connection or your login and password inserted in the primary connection.
The main use of the connector is to have the tower view with your simulator when connected with the IVAO ATC software.
The first connection to the IVAO connector will be the primary and active connection to the IVAO network. The chosen client shall connect the connector by inserting the computer Ip which runs the connector software:
Example: IVAO ATC Software Aurora connection window using callsign: IVAO-DM1.
Note: If the client and connector are run on the same computer, use the local Ip = 127.0.0.1
When the connection is successful the connector will display a blue connection message, above the server selection zone, stating: Connected to IVAO as <Callsign>
Example: primary connection callsign is IVAO-DM1
The second connection to the IVAO connector will be the secondary and non-active connection. The chosen client shall connect the connector by inserting the computer Ip which runs the connector software:
Example: IVAO Pilot Software Altitude Connection window using callsign: VAOTDAM.
When the connection is successful the connector will display a grey connection message, below the server selection zone, stating: Secondary connection : <Callsign>
Example: Secondary connection callsign is VAOTDAM
Note: secondary clients cannot have an effect on the network (like edit strip, send position)
You can connect to the IVAO connector as many secondary non-active connections with any allowed IVAO client (there is no limitation):
Example: Secondary connection callsigns are VAOTDAM and IVAO-SRTA22.
