Game mode: online private
Type of issue: cant join server
Server type: pve
I’ve downloaded the dedicated server app on my laptop thats connected to ethernet, set up the server and installed. I have opened up the ports 7777, 27015, 27016 for both tcp and udp, tested port accessibility and got all greens, while also running port checker software as well. ran the server ( multiple times with different settings ex. with and without multihome ) and tried to join the game on my desktop, in multiple various ways. It wont let me join, it just loads for a long time and says connection error or something of the sort and brings me back to the main menu. I googled my issue, read multiple threads and such. some people have suggested multihome, changing server ports, but I am running on 2 machines. How does this work? What do I do if im hosting on one machine and joining on another? I can include pictures and stuff if needed. I’ve been at this for about 3 hours and am clueless about what to do. My friends can all join my server but I cant.
