Dedicated server help?

Discussion in 'RACE 07 - Official WTCC Game' started by theravenousbeast, Jan 26, 2014.

  1. Could someone try help me out? I've opened all the needed ports in the router and the firewall to host a RACE07 server yet the ping is still 5000. Checked all the ports with PFPortChecker and they are all open.

    I read that for some reason some have trouble connecting on a dedicated server hosted from the same PC that they are trying to join. Could this be the issue? EDIT: I can actually join the server by finding in through the LAN browser. ( I can see it in the multi lobby but can't join )


    edit: the ports I've opened are:
    34000-34297 TCP\UDP
    34347 TCP\UDP
    34349 TCP\UDP
    48942-48957 TCP\UDP
    26900-26907 UDP
    48958-48973 UDP

    Maybe I missed some necessary port?

    You have opened the OUTGOING ports?

    Also, you must make sure your IP address matched the permissions on your router. For example. If your open your ports for say but the the computer that is running the server is it isn't going to work.

  4. I've forwarded ports before for a CS server and I don't remember having to make outbound rules. I'll try though.

    What I really don't get is that even if I disable WIndows Firewall completely I can't join the server. The ports are correctly forwarded on the router so by logic with the firewall disabled the rules shouldn't matter. I did this for a few times for that same CS server before I figured out exactly what I needed to do with the firewall rules. So what's different here?
  5. Well I've just about given up on trying to host. Ports are correctly forwarded, set the rules in the firewall yet I still get 5000 ping. Disabled the firewall, same crap.
    Its probably something with the router my ISP is forcing me to use.

    And you've definitely got the IP address matched?

    RD-DVLC is the internal ip address on the computer that you're running the dedicated server on?
  9. Yes.
