    Hi i could use a bit of help. I have been using dedicated servers for months with no issues but as of yesterday i can't seem to find my own one anymore. I know it is up and running but when i go into the launcher it just doesn't seem to be there. It has been working for ages so all the ports are open and i have no idea what would cause this to change. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Do you use a static IP for the PC running the server?

    If not:

    At my home network 99% of the times my PC starts with the same IP to forward on the router. But sometimes it changes. With the issue you discribe.

    A change in the firewall might be the issue too.
