Hello. The issue is - I installed and played DCS on my laptop with my account. Then I got a desktop and installed it there too, now playing on my desktop. I want my brother play on my laptop, but he is not able to connect to the same server as me. Either of us can connect, but the server will not let the other player in. Then we installed DCS on a third laptop (where I never logged in with my account, only my brother) and there it works just fine (both of us can connect). We want to make it work on the first laptop because it has a lot better hardware.

What I tried: Uninstalling and reinstlaling the game - did not help.

Different server - did not help (issue is not isolated to a certain server and therefore I think it is issue of the game itself).
 

Thanks beforehand!

I am sorry maybe you did not understand my issue. There are 2 accounts (of course we have each our own accounts). That is why I think it is an error. I was using the laptop 1 with my account and my brother now uses his account (and I use my account on my PC), but on the laptop where I previously used my account, we are not able to connect to the same server, despite each of us using our own ED accounts (each of us has his very own account). On second laptop (laptop 2) - where I never logged in with my acc, it works fine.

Each of us can log in just fine on any device. Problem only occurs when trying to connect to the same server to play some multiplayer.

Likely your licenses for DCS are still stored somewhere on your first laptop and prevent your brother to play DCS on the same server.

So best contact the support. I'm pretty sure they don't want to tell you here how to solve that 😉
