Connecting FS9 manually through multiplayer

Should auto-connect between FS9 and swift not work, you will notice that the status-light on the right side of sim is off and swift is not able to detect the aircraft model that you are currently using in FS9

In order to solve this problem you need to change to FS9 and open the menu Multiplayer and choose Connect

In the connect-dialogue, swift's multiplayer-session should appear within a few seconds. Select it and then click on Join

After joining swift's multiplayer-session, change back to swift GUI and check that the status-light next to sim is lit and that swift is able to detect your aircraft model
