Can't connect to server

Recommended Posts

I have been trying to create a private server just for a few friends. I have followed the video guide and the written guide posted above in the forum. I have set up the server package and config files, forwarded the ports used and allowed access through my firewall for both types of connections, however other people are still unable to connect. I am not sure what else to try to get the server working. Any suggestions?

Update: left the server up and someone random connected. Could the problem be that the computers I am trying to connect are both on the same internet connection?

[SOLVED]: After more experiments, we found that if host and client are both on the same network, client must use the quick connect to get on the server. I had to use the local IPv4 address (found by entering ipconfig into the cmd), instead of the actual server IP that was used to get the Auth code. Hope this may help someone trying to connect to a server with friends/family
