As @drachenfeles said, these are not errors, they are statistics sent to a monitoring server which checks which servers are running, with how many players, and the associated memory/cpu usage.

This is used to figure out if for example a code change in a new version of the game ends up gobbling up more memory or crashing more often.

Hi all,

I have installed the dedicated server on a separate computer on my network, I have opened ports on my router, added inbound rules in my firewall but the three ports 7777, 7778 and 27015 are still in red in my control panel. The server is up and running, I can see it in the list of servers available but I can’t connect to it. The password works but after that, the game keeps on loading until it displays an error message (time out).

I have a bunch of errors in the console but they don’t look related:

Do you have any idea of what I should do to make this work?

Thanks!

First, one important thing: If you don’t get the green light, don’t even bother continuing: The server will not be usable.

Second, if you are planning to use the Conan Exiles game client on the same machine, then you will have conflicts because the client uses 7777, 7778 also by default, so for the server you should use something else like 7780, 7781, for example.

I have opened ports on my router

By open, you mean “open” or do you mean “forwarded”?

Open is just a firewall thing, it says that outside information is accepted instead of rejected, it’s like telling the bouncer at the entrance of the club that “yeah, you can enter”, but that’s only one part of it, this information need to reach the right machine, and that’s the “forwarding” part (to continue on the metaphor it’s like “go in the third room on the left in the corridor on the first floor”).

For a proper forwarding, you need to:

  • Have an ISP/modem that actually support port forwarding - some internet service providers infrastructure make that impossible.
  • Write down the Mac/Hardware address of your server (you can see that on the Dedicated Server Launcher just above “Test Port Accessibility” with a “copy” button so you don’t have to actually copy it manually.
  • On your router, give a fixed/static IP to your server so it does not change when you reboot, but disabling DHCP for this Mac/Hardware address.
  • Then you need to forward the three first ports (Game Port, Raw Port, Steam Port) to this fixed IP, for BOTH UDP and TCP.

At this point, if the Test Port still does not work, I suggest to temporarily shut down all the firewalls and anti-virus (on the server, on the router, on the modem if you have one, …), see if that works. If it does work, it means that one of these is wrecking havoc, so enable them back one by one until it stops working, which means you found the one causing problem -> investigate the settings, and make sure both the Game Server and the Server Launcher are being allowed.

That’s about all I can say, until you get green light it’s pointless to try to run the server :slight_smile:

Hi Toolguy,

Thanks!

I’m running the server on a different machine, in fact it doesn’t do anything else than running the server for Conan Exiles.

This machine has a fixed IP, it’s on the same network as the computer I’m using to play.

Yes I meant port forwarding, I have created two separate entries, one for UDP and the corresponding ports and another one for TCP with the corresponding range. Should I open all the ports on UDP and TCP? Port forwarding is only set for the fixed IP of the server, I guess I don’t need to open it on all internal IPs? I have also created inbound rules on the firewall + I also allowed the server application to communicate with the external world, I have also tried to switch off the firewall but it didn’t help.

Thanks!

There’s a known issue there, where in some cases computers on the same local network are not able to connect using the external ip, but can when using the local ip (that means “using direct connect”)

Since port forwarding does not see to work for you, could you give me the exact name/model of your router, and which ISP/country you are are using?

Thanks again for your help!

I have tried direct connect too but I don’t get beyond the pop-up where I have to enter the IP + password while choosing the server from the list brings me to the loading screen.

I’m using a Netgear r6400v2, I’m in Belgium using VOO as network provider. I have found a site with a step by step configuration tutorial for this router but I end up in the same situation. There might be some other option somewhere else that needs to be triggered but I haven’t found any additional information about this.

It’s IP:PORT + Password, you need to specify the game port after the IP

I’m using a Netgear r6400v2, I’m in Belgium using VOO as network provider.

Somebody suggested to reset the router: https://forum.voo.be/conversations/ma-connexion-internet/port-forwarding-ne-fonctionne-plus/5e53e4814cf00d702bf74068 (from 2019)

Based on what I read, it looks like contacting VOO’s support could be a good idea, apparently some people have a configuration that does not allow port forwarding:

https://www.informaticien.be/forum_topic-6866--VOO__pb_avec_NAT_.html (from 2013, so a bit old):

Les abonnements domestiques, pour les petites formules portent le doux nom de CGN,
En clair, ca veut dire double NAT.
Il t’est donc impossible de sortir en VPN, ou de router du trafic de l’extérieur vers l’intérieur.
Ce qui dans ton cas t’empêche de router le trafic externe vers ton port 80 vers l’ip interne de ton serveur Web.

Donc, d’un point de vue technique : Oui tu as de l’internet donc pour le brave gars au support, tu es un idiot qui ne sais pas faire de NAT.

D’un point de vue pratique, le flux n’est possible que dans un sens; ce qui ne t’arrange pas.

Afin de résoudre cela : appelle le support Voo et tu leur dis que tu es en CGN et qu’ils doivent changer cela; ca demande 5 min de config chez eux et le reboot du modem.

Hi Toolguy,

Thanks for the additional info!
I have tested some other elements that would rule out any issue with VOO.

I have installed the server on my Surface tablet (win10) to try something else:

  • Surface Pro + Netgear + VOO => all ports are red
  • Surface Pro + VOO Modem + VOO => all ports are red
  • Surface Pro + 4G modem => all ports are red
    I also added rules to my Windows 10 firewall but it didn’t help

So unless I have really bad luck with my two network provider, I’m back to square zero. :frowning:

any idea left in your magic hat?

I would just contact the VOO support and ask them :slight_smile:
I’ve never done port forwarding on a 4G modem, I’ve no idea if that’s actually possible.

side note: many ISPs don’t allow modem/switch/access point configuration, you have to contact support with such request
unless of course you use private devices

The only recommendation I really have is that the docs should probably contain more detailed information about how the server settings are configured via the .ini files. Where are the different .ini files located. What the different files do (the more important ones anyway). How the tool itself behaves in that it adds values to the .ini. How the server behaves in that it removes lines that are set to default values. A more clear link to a full list of the values. That sort of stuff.

The vast majority of problems I had were with configuring the server settings, and while in the end my biggest problem was caused by user error, the overall experience was very frustrating at first.

Eventually I figured out what I needed to do, and obviously others have as well. The discord is super helpful, but I feel that having all of the relevant information in a single location would be very helpful.

This will probably change in some version not that far down the line: I had way too many problems with values disappearing, which is why I introduced the “Launcher.ini” where I will start migrating the values, and they will be the “authoritative ones”, which I will keep as a base to update the actual game server ini files.

When that’s done, I’ll documenting that :slight_smile:

Hi Toolguy,

Thanks but my 4G solution is not using VOO, it’s a totally different network. I have tried to use multiple phones in 4G and I get the same result. There is no port forwarding as there is no router involved, you directly connect to the network.

Could the server work with other ports?

thanks

Well yes, some people are running more than one game server on the same physical machine, each game server use a different set of ports, and each set of port is forwarded on the router.

Hi, I am trying to boot up a server for the first time using 1.3.1 and have set up everything, and everything seems to download correctly but when it tries to launch the server it say all of the mods are out of date and doesn’t launch. I can see that the mods were just downloaded for the first time and on steam can see that at least some of them have been updated today so an outdated dev-kit version shouldn’t be the problem for all of them. Does anyone know what I did wrong with my setup? Thanks.

it lies
I mean, this feature need a little work, but if your server won’t start there is probably issue with one or more mods

thanks, I suspect its one of the mods that haven’t been updated to the new release then. I will wait until the weekend after they have been updated and try again.

So just to touch on this, mine is doing the same but we are running 1.3.0, should I update to 1.3.1 and see if that works? Multiple mods updated last night
