Through the official XP11 release this week, I have observed no improvement with the issue (previously reported) in terms of not being able to use any cockpit controls from secondary PC's.  My config is a 3 PC config, with 2 Windows PC's controlling the center and side windows, and a MacBook Pro w/ BizonBox3 on the cockpit.  Only the master PC can change any controls (nav/com/etc.), but the other PC's still cannot change controls.

I'm flying the Cirrus Jet primarily.  Can others replicate/confirm this?  I filed a bug but obtained no feedback to that filing.

Thanks ...

Yes, that appears to be an issue with the networking code. Bug has been filed and will hopefully get fixed in a later update.

I heard back from a developer on this: this is not expected functionality and will probably never be included. External visuals are simply that---extra views. They are strict slaves of the master machine, they don't have "rights to write" back information to the master machine.
