Using simconnect over TCP or UDP?


Is it possible to interact with simconnect over TCP or UDP. Programming in IOS and want to communicate with simconnect? So, IOS <-> simconnect <-> MSFS2020.

I don’t believe there is a direct way, but you can create a windows application that communicates with SimConnect and then passes that data over UDP/TCP sockets. It would look like this:

IOS < SOCKET CONNECTION > Windows Application <-> SimConnect <-> MSFS2020

I have had great success with this approach for some distributed work I have been doing.

Thanks for the info. Looks the only option :+1:

What type of server would you have running for this scenario? Would a REST server work? Or would you recommend some other network technology?
