X-Plane 9 and Foreflight

I have a multi-machine setup running x9.70 and wanted an interface to FF on the iPad and didn't want to have to upgrade the PCs to run v10, so I use RedBird Flight Simulations' Cygnus (http://retail.redbirdflight.com/collections/cygnus) or (http://www.redbirdflightsimulations.com/cygnus/) -- a bit pricey, but works very well.

Sorry it took so long, I have been busy. Here is the plugin for Mac OS X systems. Requires Mac OS X 10.5 or greater. To install, unzip the file and place forexp.xpl into the plugins folder. After launching, run ForeFlight on any device within the same subnet as your X-Plane computer. Afterward, you should be able to see ForeXP under devices within ForeFlight.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask.

No traffic is shown yet, I am working on that.

No windows version yet, if someone is willing to compile the windows version, let me know.

So, if you're on a Mac, let me know and I'll give you a link to download the plugin.

(1st): Sorry for bringing this -such an old- thread alive again, but I am at present at the same situation.

(2nd): That being said, I would sincerely appreciate if you can share the Mac plug-in or whatever so I can connect my ForeFlight for iPad to my X-Plane 9

My X-plane is running in a Mac Mini 2011 where X-Plane 11 is not an option, since it requires far more than it's capabilities. So I decided stay in X-Plane 9 until I see any improvement in X-Plane other than eye-candy visually-impacting improvements they are lately concentrated in. I am a ForeFlight user since a couple of weeks, actually in trial (I have a Jeppesen iPad subscription) If I can make this work, maybe I keep them both.

Thank you in advance for any help you can provide.

Best regards!
