Title: FS2002 players unable to connect
Post by: VANZ_Chief_Pilot on February 15, 2004, 08:21:42 PM
Hi all We are running fshost at our va for pilots and have found that pilots using 2002 can see the session but are unable to coect to it. I ran the server from my personal pc and they could join fine its now ran on the actual VA's server and they can no longer connect any ideas I will post the server details if this will help anyone to cure the problem.

thanks in advance for any help

regards

Hi Lee,

I tried to connect to your server with FS2002 just now, and found the same problem.  When I ran a port monitor, I found that your machine isn't answering UDP port 2300, which is used when FS tries to connect.  Is it possible you're forwarding UDP ports 2302 to 2400 (which are for FS2004), but not 2300 to 2400 (which are for FS2004)?

Here are the ports you should have forwarded in your router (I'm assuming you have a router) to cover both FS2002 and FS2004:

TCP 47624
UDP 2300 to 2400
UDP 6073
UDP 23456
