PostSubject: Connection to Game sever not happening (solved)   Fri Aug 15, 2014 6:58 pm

Firstly Hello and thanks for all the hard work.

I am having a problem with outside connections on my IT server
I have opened the firewall ports on the hosting machine. tcp/udp 40000 and 40010.
I have put PC on a DMZ via the router (Netgear D6300)
I configured dyndns within the netgear router and the ip address is resolved correctly.
The MAIN_SERVER_IP was changed to the dyndns
when pinging I get the correct WAN IP address of my router.

now the problem is I can run the client and create the account and log in (from outside the lan) and change the char but when I click on start I get the dreaded (our connection request has failed c: )

I took the highping to 800

But still no connection to the game server.

Any other ideas ?

thanks in advance

Get the DMZ off and make sure there's not rules in port filtering(which block ports).
I don't know a lot about Netgears, but, that may work.

I have made sure there are no deny in the firewall. I have tried with port forward for 40000 and 40010 (tcp and udp) without it being on DMZ.
same symptoms.
Http traffic and ftp works correctly so I know the dyndns is resolving and that port forwarding is working.

Ok so this has been solved.
My understanding of the main server ip address was fundamentaly flawed.
I thought that the system would have had some kind of ability to resolve the dyndns hostname to the IP address.
This is not tne case.

So forget dyndns and get your isp to assign you a static IP if possible.
Server is up and running but still in testing phases. Waiting to see what solution my isp can give for static ip address assigning.
Thanks for the help.

I hope im able to contribute at some point too.
