Game hosting with the Technicolour TG587

Answered

HI all,

 

I have just changed over to bigpond and have a technicolour TG587n modem/router.

I am able to host a game (crysis) but others cant join. I am getting an ip address of 10.0.0.1 when I run up my dedicated server exe. Also I am using Rcon to administer it and it wont connect to the server unless I tell it the ip is 10.0.0.1 keying in the ip address results in a disconnect timeout.

I have tried port forwarding with no result. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Elninjo,

Welcome to Crowd Support!..

That is your local IP address and others will not be able to connect to it unless you are in a LAN setting. You will need to use your public IP address and confirm that the ports required are opened via canyouseeme.org.

Alternatively, I recommend installing and using Hamachi, it makes things much easier.

Thanks for the reply Lathania,

 

I have changed it to a public IP address and a few other changes and it works perfectly in hosting!

 

Thankyou again

 

Cheers
