Game mode: Online private
Issue: Can’t connect
Server type: PVE
Whenever I start up my home-based dedicated server (On the same pc with which I play the game), I can’t join my own server. This ends up with the notification “Invalid password”. Then, if I remove the password, I get some error about a uniqueID. Whenever this happens, the in-game serverlists also will not show even one server. It only loads servers when my own dedicated server isn’t running.
However, I have now found it this only happens if I start the server first. When I do, it seems to block port 7777 or something… I don’t know too much about it tho.
Please provide a step-by-step process of how the bug can be reproduced. The more details you provide us with the easier it will be for us to find and fix the bug:
Set up dedicated server (Without the app, which doesn’t work at all for me)
Also, in here is probably the solution to your problem: Both steam and default server setting would use querry port 27015 and port 7777. You need to change ports on your server and problem should be solved.
Also @Ignasi, there is a small typo in that quote (2715 should be 27015 I guess)
Problem with ports is same if you use 2x server or server + client (steam).
Also, did not try it much, but as I understand, this app is just something that works like a GUI, sitting on original SteamCMD server (someone correct me if I am wrong)
@NoobishPro, just out of curiosity, I just tried what I suggested:
I set the server (using the app) set ports to 7779 and 27019
as usuall there were those errors on server start.
After that I started the game on same computer and joined via direct connect without problem.
Then I joined that server with another account on different computer, same network.
to note: not much experience with dedicated server, I just sometimes play around with it to see what is possible and… if I can do it in the first place
PS: This app REALLY makes things easier! Awesome work!
Still haven’t tried it. I think it’ll be tomorrow then…
But the steamdll error on-join wasn’t an issue for me until the latest update.
I did solve a lot of problems by going the -nosteam route, but in that scenario I lost my own character which was a no-go as I switched from co-op to a dedicated server after dozens of hours of playing =)
As for the “pooch”… that was “present” way before Steam, or Funcom or Conan.
Simply put: on one computer, only one app at the time can use a certain port. While using it its blocked for every other app on the computer.
There are simple reasons why 7777 and 27015 are set as default on conan server (briefly explained in the post I linked above).
In same breath, there are also very simple ways to modify those ports, as you found out.
Modify some text files, create a short .bat that would take care of that or now, with the app, make it happen literally with 3 clicks.
Anyways, now you again in control! Off you go to claim the Exiled Lands!
