Please make sure you are signing into JIFP under the same account the order was entered for. If you are still receiving the message, contact the Jeppesen Sales Support team to ensure your JIFP order has been processed. The contact information for Jeppesen Sales Support can be found on the left side of the Contact Us Form.
If you are receiving this error when opening JIFP, please try uninstalling and reinstalling the JIFP application. Since your aircraft and routes are stored on the JIFP server, you will not lose any of this information when you uninstall JIFP. You can uninstall JIFP by going to the Windows Control Panel. To reinstall JIFP, click on the Download JIFP link at the top of this web page.
If the error message continues to appear after reinstalling the application, please make sure any Internet security, firewalls, or anti-virus programs are either disabled or configured to allow JIFP to access the Internet. The application utilizes Internet ports 80 and 1986 to connect to the JIFP servers. It may be necessary to configure your firewall or Internet security applications so these ports are not blocked. If your network has a router, gateway, or other networking device that also functions as a firewall, it may be necessary to configure the firewall so that Internet ports 80 and 1986 are not blocked.
You can use the Jeppesen System Diagnostics Tool to test the connections to the JIFP servers, as well as ports 80 and 1986. Please click on the Jeppesen System Diagnostics Tool link below to download and install it. Once you have opened the program, select JIFP / AOPA RTFP to test the connection.

Jeppesen Internet Flight Planner provides access to an online database of 100 different aircraft. These aircraft can be used as is, or you can customize one to closely match the specific operating parameters of your airplane. You can also create an aircraft model from scratch.
Any aircraft you've customized or created are stored on the JIFP server, so they will always be available if you access JIFP from another computer.
If you are behind a corporate or personal firewall, you will need to have access through the following ports for your weather provider:
* CSC DUATS access: port 80
* CSC DUATS access (alternate): port 23
* DTC DUATS access: port 8096
* Jeppesen Weather access: port 24901
If you are using JIFP on a corporate network, please contact your company's IT support group for assistance with configuring the firewall to allow access to these ports. If you are using JIFP at your home, please refer to any documentation or online support your firewall manufacturer has provided.
