Installing ULIP on a Windows XP Host 1. From the Start menu select Settings>Control Panel>Add Hardware. This launches the driver installation wizard. Click Next. 2. The wizard searches for recently connected hardware; this stage can take several minutes. Then select Yes, I have already connected the hardware, and click Next. 3.

From the Common hardware types list, select Network adapters, click Next. 6. Click Have Disk, and select the host\x86-win32\bin directory of your Tornado installation. 7. Select WindRiver ULIP, and click Next twice 8. The Hardware Installation dialog reports that “WindRiver ULIP has not passed Windows Logo testing to verify its compatibility with Windows XP. You can safely ignore this warning and click Continue Anyway. 9. Then, from the Control Panel, launch Network Connections and right-click WindRiver ULIP connection (You can rename this connection). 10. From the WindRiver ULIP Properties panel, select Internet Protocol (TCP/IP), and click Properties. 11.

In the WINS tab, select Disable NetBIOS over TCP/IP and click OK to properly close all the remaining windows. 13. If you want to enable network communication between simulators and the outside world, select Setting>Control Panel>Administrative tools from the Start menu, double-click on Services, then search for the Routing and Remote access service.

Hello How are you? Did you get this working? I am trying to setup Tornado 2.2 with vxsim in my notebook (XP Media Center)and I can't get vxwim working. I was not able to setup the "target server" with vxsim. Thanks Rgds m
Here I am. In 2015... reading old posts for old software from 2007. :(
