You can setup a rF server in two ways Mtommi.

- Dedicated server
- Hosted server from ingame

The dedicated server is a seperate program in your rFactor folder. Hosted is just a matter of create online game.

For both you need to open ports on your router's firewall. See this PDF: http://negativesum.net/games/rfactor/files/rfactor_dedicated_server_hosting_guide.pdf

If you have enabled your Windows firewall on the pc from which you host, you probably need to enable the dedicatedserver.exe and/or the rfactor.exe access to outside. If you use another firewall (not windows default) you probably need to open the same ports as described in the guide.

Good luck mate.

O the black art of setting up a server lol

because people can join using the IP in rFactor Hamachi works very well or if you have a 2nd pc to host the game that also can be a lot easyer.

Did you try and refresh 10 times or so?

Also try entering IP address: ( Press the Blue + button )

192.168.11.2
192.168.11.2:port ( put your port there )


See if you find it then.

Also, as Nigel said, you could try Hamachi, ( google it ) Works for allot of people who can't host normally.

go to a test race and enter in chat "ISI_BABYFACTORY" in caps hit return, exit then try.

yes m8 all clear now, you need an answer from someone who sets up the RD server. but i guess it has to do with what class you selected to use on your server.
but it always best to use the cheat to unlock all cars and get loads of money :good:

Hey Peeps,

Ok, here's the deal... when I log into some of the RD servers, the tire wear & fuel use factors are set to NORMAL. When I run my server, the dedicated server applet drop down tab shows that 2x is the LOWEST value available??? I imagine that it is in some "ini" or "cfg" somewhere but I have looked everywhere I can think of and must have missed it. I like to throw up a test server for myself and others... But want it to mimick RD server or testing won't be valid.

HELP.


THANKS IN ADVANCE.
