2 PC set-up with PSX via WLan possible?

Started by SwissMark, Mon, 6 May 2024 06:39


Good day everyone,

Would this set-up work? I have been given an old (4 years) good PC from a company for free:

PC1 runs scenery (P3D or MSFS, CP Flight Modules COM EFIS MCP, CockpitMaster CDU, Boeing Yoke and Bravo Throttle)
PC1 1 ultra-wide screen for scenery

PC2 runs PSX, Navigraph, TopCat
PC2 has 4 standard company screens; 1 wide and 3 normal ones for the various glasscockpit instruments
(most relevant for me is PDF, ND, Up/Low EICAS, Transponder, 3rd CDU, Overhead)

PC1 and PC2 are on the same network.

My basic question is: can this be done system wise to run PSX on a second (external) PC?

Much appreciate your feedback  -  thank you very much.

Have a wonderful day.

My regards,


Keep the blue skies up!

Hi Mark,

It should be no problem to run PSX on a 4-year old computer. I'm hesitant if the computers are only connected via WIFI/WLAN, though. If you use PC1 as external scenery generator, PSX needs to have the Boost server enabled which causes a lot of network data traffic.

It *could* work if PC1 and PC2 are the only clients in the WLAN and it's a 5 GHz WLAN. I experienced stutters when I tried this. I am now running PSX and the scenery generator on one machine. When I go into the garden, I use a second instance of PSX on my notebook for flight monitoring purposes. In this case, WLAN is not an issue - the only issue I have is that my wife is always delighted when she notices that I'm glancing at the notebook instead of removing the weeds :-P.



Moin Dirk,

Thank you very much.

I will navigate this technical issue with my WLAN. Swisscom has a 5HGZ line here at my building, so that should be okay. Whilst the other PC 2 is "old" it is technically sound and strong enough to handle PSX.
PC1 (RTX3080) is stronger, but the GPU CPU already now maxed out with all scenery settings on MAX / ULTRA.

Weeds? That is why I ave kids. With their small hands, they can reach in all small corners.

Happy landings and thanks again for your answer.

My regards from the Land of the Eidgenossen,
