DN115 SE101
Gents,
In my last hosting session we stumbled on a problem;
We had a dual lamp failure at DN115 & SE101
When a train approached DN115 the phonecall came to me (Controlling Allerton/Edge Hill/Lime Street) instead of the relevant signaller?

I am also receiving the failures for this area, any delays and waiting at Red Signal.
(I am running the session, but using a second "Client" to control signalboxes not using Server)

Just to add to the info below.
I'm in control of Halton Jn, Runcorn and Ditton Panels.. Another Simsigger is on Speak Jn and Allerton, I got a call from a driver in Garston FL Run Round.

When you say you got the call, did your phone actually ring or did it appear in your phone list? Which signal do you mean when you say Garston RR?

I have identified two signals which went to the wrong signaller. Calls from trains at DN115 would have gone to Allerton and calls from SE401. These will both be corrected in the next update

Sorry I should of been clear at the time when I posted about Garston Run Round as I was signalling trains at the time.
It was SE401 where the driver of the loco running round it's train rang up shown in the F6 list which came through to the Ditton Control Panel instead of Speke Jn Panel.

My phone actually rung, not just appeared. Instead of DN115 going to Ditton and SE401 going to Speke, both calls came through to me, which at the time I was controlling - Allerton, Edge Hill and Liverpool Lime Street. So unsure which of my controlled boxes actually received the call but it came to me.

Yes, but I clarified this above.
I had 2 sessions open;
- One acting as the server (NO INPUT onto this session unless it was a GF move etc.)
- One acting as a Client (Connected to Server, as if it was anybody else joining) to get my allocated Signalboxes.

The phonecalls came through on the Client (second session), I know this because the Server session was muted for phonecalls (Only messages made a sound) and the telephone rang out, meaning it was the client session.

Sorry, I mis worded my question. I was trying to get at, which yo have now answered, whether it was host or client that received the calls. Allerton was receiving calls from 115 & 401 (Garston RR) was going to Ditton. All others look correct so if there are any I need to know exact details

Apologies, they are the only ones I caught onto.
Will look out for anything else,

Incidentally, you don't need to do this to control panels yourself. Any panels not covered by a client are automatically allocated to the host, and you'll receive all calls from them.

I did think that, but I couldn't seem to figure it out!

Good to know for next time!
