Friends cant join my server

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Ive had this problem for ages, and i have spent hours researching solution on google. Problem is that my friends cant join my server, no matter the game, mainly on garrysmod and minecraft. I have set up port forwading that minecraft requires to be open.

Do i have to use routers ip or my PCs ip, I mean that with 62.xxx(router) or 192.xxx(PC) for the people to join my server?

You need to use your external IP on thr router. You also might need to open the outgoing ports for the server on you router.

You can check your external ip here > CLICK
i dont know what router you have, but i had a generic router that my ISP sent me when i contracted the ADSL... and man what a PITA that router it was.. never opening ports, so i ended up buying new. All im saying it could be your router thats giving you the headaches

If you're absolutely sure the ports are open, have you checked the firewall?

To completely eliminate the router as the problem, you can set the computer as the DMZ host. I'd take it back out though after, unless you know what you're doing.

I am trying to host on my own machine that i play with. My router is buffalo WHR G125 with DD-WRT firmware. As DMZ i assume you mean Demilitarized Zone, do i set it to point my current PCs ip 192.168.1.xx?

yes point it to your machine ip 192...whatever is yours
and then tell your friends to try to connect or simply use GRC Shields up to test the port yourself
