    I used to set up a router and FORZA7 can run normally.

    Later, I moved, changed the network operator, and found that FORZA7 and FH4 did not work properly. The router settings have not been changed, as before.

    I tried SIMHUB, everything is fine, the dashboard can display normally, then I try to forward the UDP to 4123 and the IP address displayed on my SIMTOOLS through SIMHUB, but it fails, and the seat still has no action.

    So I came for help.

    good news.

    Just through research, I now find new changes.

    Now that FORZA7 (and possibly FH4) is updated, it is no longer necessary to forward UDP through a router as before.

    Go directly to the game: In the option -HUD, turn on data output, enter your own IP address on SIMTOOLS, and port 4123, everything else is the same.

    Then it succeeded, which is much more convenient than before.

    You can play happily again.

    Unfortunately, I haven't found a way to make SIMHUB and simtools run perfectly at the same time.

    It seems that this problem cannot be solved by just forwarding via UDP port.

    If you find it, please leave a message below this post, thank you.

    I tested FH4, which is different from FORZA7. Entering the IP address and port 4123 directly is invalid.

    But it is feasible to forward the port and IP address through SIMHUB, so FH4 can easily achieve the simultaneous work of SIMHUB and SIMTOOLS, which is really great.

    Now, whether it is FORZA7 or FH4, you can achieve the motion simulation effect without forwarding the port through the router. You no longer need to regularly check and modify your network IP address as before.
