I need help with multiplayer
Posted 19 May 2012 - 04:11 AM
So, heres exactly what we do:
-I get my IP adress and port forward the port 20595
-I give him the IP example: 123.456.789.123:20595
-I go into 0AD and multiplayer then host game, i tell him to go into join game and use the IP i gave him
-He tries to connect but cant connect, it says cant connect to server or lost connection to server
-Ive tried being in the lobby and in game, neither work
-Ive tried having an AI set to un-assigned but that doesnt work
-Ive tried having the senaio on random but that doesnt work
Someone please tell me if i am missing something or doing something wrong.
My firewall is set to allow incoming connections for 0AD
I am 100% sure its my external IP, ive had experience with a Minecraft server, ive checked whatismyip.com it says the same as it does on my router website (the 192.168.1.1 site) and we have tried on numerous occasions
He lives in the same town as me so there shoudlnt be much of an internet connection problem or anything.

One possible issue to be careful about with port forwarding is that you need UDP port 20595, not TCP port 20595. (I think some routers let you select one or the other or both.)

I dunno about firewall, all it is is a button that i can turn on and and made exceptions.
same for him
