Starting a multiplayer server, problem...

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 Sorry if already asked or if wrong place to ask, been looking for 2+ days.

A friend and I tried to create a Tank Crew Dogfight Server using the T.C. Create Server/Join Server. But we can not connect/join to each others server, but we can join other servers online.

Can someone tell me what we are doing wrong or where to look for info on creating a T.C. dogfight server?

 

Thanks

See if this will help get you setup and once you get your server up, let me know and I'll send you a mission or two to get you started, if you need them.

Note that the manual that Neun linked to shows you how to set up a stand-alone server rather than the one in-game. 

 

If you still want to use the in-game option, check these:

  • Are you getting any message when you cannot join?
  • Have you forwarded the required ports on your router?
    Ports: 28000 TCP, 28000 UDP, 28100 TCP
  • Did you select the Available from internet option?
  • In you Settings > Multiplayer screen, do you have multiple IP addresses?
    If so, specify the one to use in Use IP.

Thanks Jim for clarifying that, I misunderstood him.

Thanks Neun and Jim!

The Mission Editor and MP manual looks great, looking forward to getting into it.

Sorry if I was not clear...

Jim, that info is perfect.

I did the port forwarding several years ago,  but till I read your post, I forgot a month or so back they upgraded my Internet speed by replacing my router.  (guess what I forgot to do..)

Thanks guys for the fast help!

its appreciated very much.

OK,  Still no go...  no connect

I  did the static IP and port forwarding as noted above by Jim.

Option - from internet - YES Checked

just one address but added it to - Use IP

 

After doing above I CREATED SERVER

My friend tried to connect

He got - Error Message: No status from server #30 (something like that)

 

Note- He has not done port forwarding yet, but he should not need just to connect (I think)

Note - We both and Join online Dogfight Servers ok

 

I tried to connect to him (his server) and got #10019 error

 

Anything else I might have missed?

Is there a log file?

 

Thanks

Are you forwarding the ports to the IP address of your PC. To find the IP address required, do the following on your PC:


1. Type "Cmd" in the Windows search box and press Enter.
     A command window opens.


2. In the command window, type "ipconfig" and press Enter.
    The "IPv4 Address" line gives the IP address to forward the ports to.

 

Is the .list file for the mission empty? If it's not empty, are the directories correct? Try resaving the mission (you also may need to respecify it in the in-game server missions-to-run list).

ip was wrong, fixed that.

.list paths looked ok
 

Still getting #10019 error

 

will try re-saving file and turning off  McAfee  anti virus and  win10 Windows security  And testing tomorrow.

 

thanks Jim for hanging in there!

I always hated posters that never come back and tell us how it went.  if they got it fixed or not.

So - Yes, that did it. It is fixed and working now!

 

thanks very very much Jim and Neun.

I appreciate the help very much!

Now onto learning the M E

Thanks again!

I always hated posters that did not tell us which fix worked, re-saving the file or turning off McAfee, or turning off Win10 security?  :biggrin:

 

Inquiring minds want to know!

 

Cheers!

LOL

not sure exactly which one, but the testing was taking so long at one item per day  I had to  put a few together:

I opened the same ports in my Mcafee FW.

Also made SIMPLE  mission  just a few tanks and saved for testing.

then tested Online  - worked

 

My guess would go for the antivirus firewall.

As for the second test today I did use an old mission,  one  I used before and they were able to connect this time, which had failed in the past.

I hope that helps, thanks again very very much Jim
