Author Topic: No one can join my server?  (Read 849 times)

So I've been hosting recently and players have been having connection problems, telling me that when they try and join my server the ping appears as ---. Hosting worked well before, but now it doesn't seem to work that well. Is something I'm doing wrong?

port forward in the server's settings in custom idk

port forward, if you dont know how to do so just look below

>>start game>>(gamemode)>>click advanced after you click your gamemode>>

in advanced the first thing that is there is "port", for instance mine is set to 38000, i really don't know what works for you or other players for that matter so just set it to 48000 or some other number, just keep trying until you get a good one i guess

I've tried port forwarding via advanced yet nothing works. I even tried default addons.

you need to access your router and forward the ports manually on there.

Which port do i need to forward? 28000?

You can try every single port but if you don't open it in your router none of them will work

Press the windows key and R at the same time. In the window that pops up, type cmd and press enter
In the black window that pops up type ipconfig, now look at the default gateway, it'll probably be something resembling 192.168.1.1 or something, type that in your browser adress bar
Now log in to your router on the page you just ended up on in your browser. If you or your parents never changed the password or username, both of those are probably 'admin'. Now I can't help you any further because its dependant on what brand router you have, but usually there will be a port forwarding option under network somewhere. Open port 28000 on both TCP and UPD for your PCs local IP adress (probably something like 192.168.1.5 or something, its also in that ipconfig window somewhere). Now your server should be port forwarded.

If I can't port forward, is it possible to use a port that already has been forwarded?

Not without breaking the other thing that is using that port.
