Conan Exiles Dedicated Server Launcher (Official Version: 1.4.5 / Beta: 1.4.6)

Direct connect on the public IP, or on the internal/local IP?

When the game was in early access, the networking part was using the SteamSDK, which does a lot of fancy black magic to handle firewalls, routers, etc… but a year or so back, there was a major change done to help have Exiles run on other stores (Microsoft Store, Epic Store, etc…) which meant the Steam stuff had to be replaced by some other code, and unfortunately one specific issue is that connecting to a server on the same local network, using the external IP, does not always work, in which case you have to use the local network IP of the server.

Ultimately, the only way to resolve these issues is to look at log files.

Turkey / TürkNet

Looks like that’s the problem:

“It’s 2021, I call TurkNet and say, “I want dynamic Real IP, not static IP”, their answer to me is sir, you need to get static IP to do IP forwarding.”

Thanks for the reply.

It was the internal/local IP. Could I send you the log files I have? I have three saved. I did notice this string in the logs:

I scrubbed out my IP and replaced it with dashes, but this seems to be in all three of the logs I currently have. Thanks again for the assist.

Hello,

I have a problem with the latest dedicated server application.
When I launch it first time the window pops up fine but when I try to move the window it is suddenly trimmed and becomes not resizable anymore.
Is it a know issue?

Thanks,
Rome

Is there a way to use programs like ForceBindIP? ForceBindIP | r1ch.net

I use a vpn tunnel and so i can’t use multihome, the conansandbox must be started via another exe to us the correct external ip and not the internal vpn ip

Yes it is, there are issues when the dialog is larger than the windows resolution, or with some high dpi screens, it’s on my list of things to eventually address, I even tried a couple of time but so far without success.

Sorry!

I’m not sure, that need investigation:

  • Is it safe
  • How to setup that
  • Does that impact the launch process

One thing you could do is to try:

  • Make sure that “start server if not running” is not checked
  • Launch the server with the launcher normally, and look at the command line parameters in the logs
  • Kill the server (leave the launcher running and wait for it to detect that the server is gone)
  • Restart the server with ForceBindIP using the same command line parameters
  • Verify that the launcher detects that the server is running

If that works, then it means there’s not much to change on my side, other than how to launch the program (and detect ForceBindIP, UI, bla bla bla).

Hey the server is always on 9999 ping what can i do

So I’ve downloaded this Server Launcher yesterday because I wanted to host a server for myself and friend (single server on a single computer, hosting on one PC and playing on a seperate one) but whatever I tried, port forwarding, DMZ, hamachi nothing works and for some weird reason I can connect to it via local IP and he can’t (we’re on same network). This is the only game in which I had trouble making a server for. Before this I had 7 days to die, Valheim, Unturned etc. everything worked as it should except this one.

afaik you don’t even need to forward ports if you’re on LAN, just direct connect to local IP

@Newguy @HRVAT222 @Pajonius Regarding the 9999 Ping on the server browser, and the difficulty at connecting, I’m poking the dev team to see if they have any idea.

I’ll be in holidays for the next three weeks (until 9th of August), so if I don’t answer it’s because I’m busy sun-tanning drowning under the scorching sun torrential rains of the current very unstable European weather.

See you soon :slight_smile:

where and how can I set the dedicated server launcher to notify me when the server restarts (timer)?
At the moment the message comes only on the Discord!

hi! i am having difficulties using this, I can normally get it to show under the server list, but i cannot get a green light on ports… I have gone into my tp-link router and added an inclusion for port running all on 7777, then again at 7779 and 65534, along with adding a port in firewall exemptions n even turning firewall completely off n still cannot get a green line on port…i have tried this on wifi n ethernet connecting, i don’t know what I’m doing wrong, it pings at 9999 on the server list n cannot get on on either comp with a server running and a second pc in another room… I know the host time out on the server is cause I’m not getting the ports to clear on the server app, ive tried all versions of app from 3 to the current 7… please help me!! n please advise what to actually set the port as for being able to play on pc with server app on … I am not sure if i even put in the right number, wasn’t really that clear on instructions on that part… thank you… i will include the admin showing port open or closed report that i googled how to do to see if thr router port was actually opened but I’m not comp savy so dont know how to tell if it is or isnt…( i know not smart to do but im desperate on fixing this)
any other steps maybe i didn’t take?? or maybe im just in the boonies ( tho i can connect to other servers n play on them …just not myne … thank u. hopefully, i can get a fix soon!!! ( bedroom is were pc with server on)

Apparently my dedicated server constantly restarts by itself. Version 1.4.6 - also, already checked if there are any files which need to be fixed but it seems like everything is fine. Does anyone know how to fix this?

Thank you!

Dedicated server crashes/stops immediatly upon startup. This happens reguardless of if I use this application or server thrall. Any fix?

My conan exiles dedicated server shuts down immediately after starting it. and it shows the message in the ServerLog area of the launcher: “LogConsoleManager:Warning: Console object named ‘granite.AllowPerDLCGraniteCaches’ already exists but is being registered again, but we weren’t expected it to be! (FConsoleManager::AddConsoleObject)” . i am pretty lost on how to fix this any help would be appreciated thank you. My version of the app is 1.4.5.
