I’ve been trying to run a dedicated server on my computer which i will also use for playing with a couple friends. The problem is: they can see the server on the server browser, but it appears as 9999 ping and when connecting it times out. I myself can connect to it, using my private IP address (192…) and the port 7779 (i changed it from 7777 to 7779 so i can also play the game on the same machine as i run the dedicated server).
I have downloaded and configured the server from here fun con official version 1-5-8 (Can’t paste links)
So, the things i have tried unsuccessfuly:
1 - i have put my machine on DMZ on my router network configuration;
2 - disabled windows firewall completely (and before that i had configured all the necessary port forwarding and aplication permission on the firewall, i decided to disable it completely to test if the problem was in there, but wasn’t);
3 - executed the dedicated server .exe as admin, both the first time so it downloads all the rest of the needed files, and after that as well (just running the server);
4 - i even used a higher port (30000) to see if my ISP was blocking the ports. But the problem persisted. I decided to confirm it by downloaded EGS (Empyrion Galactic Survival) dedicated server, to see if my ISP could still be blocking the ports, but it worked normally. I used a site (can’t paste the link, but its the “you get signal” one) to check if my port was open from the internet side, and when i run the EGS dedicated server, it appears as open, so, i tried the same port on Conan server, but the port was appearing as closed.
So i decided to check if Conan was really opening the ports correctly, then i used the program CurrPorts from NirSoft to monitor the application ports, and it saw that it opens a UDP port on 7779, but not a tcp one. So when i check if the port was open from the site i described above, it looks closed. The curious thing is: when i login using the local IP and the port 7779, it creates temporarily a 7779 TCP that the site recognizes as the port is open, after a while, the tcp connection on the 7779 port is closed ( i guess that its when the game finished loading my character) and the site says that the port is closed again.
I’m completely lost in this matter now, and i would really appreciate any light you guys could shed in this situation. English is not my mother language, so i tried my best to explain the situation, if i did not made the situation clear let me know, i’ll try to explain better.
PS: Oh, yeah, the three lights for testing the game availability (Game client port, raw udp port and source query port) all checks out correctly when i click “Test Port Accessibility” button.
Thanks in advance.
