    Hi guys, after having issues for hosting my server on my own PC (via dedicated server), because some ports are impossible to use (thanks internet supplier), i wanted to look for a cheap server to host it but i just don't have any ideas. Do you guys have any recommendation or things you already used and was good? Thanks in advance!

    What do you mean some ports are impossible to use? Are they getting blocked by your ISP? Weird

    There are 2 port range settings (1025 - 65535) in your "Multiplayer.JSON". Change to working ports! Also, change your Router's port forwarding to your new port settings.

    The simulation port and http port can be changed in the multiplayer.json.

    The additional steam ports... I don't know if they can be changed?
