Title: Multi Player Connection Difficulties
Post by: Midwest-Aviation on March 02, 2004, 10:18:47 PM
 ???
I recently set up a server to allow for Multi player flights. I am using Teamspeak on the same server and have had no problems with it. I am also running my web page off of this server. However, I found that if there is anyone flying on my server, when I join the session, it kicks everyone off of my server except for me. My server Session and Name in FSHost Spy are www.midwest-aviation.net along with my web page. Any help would be appreciated.

Hi,

Definitely sounds like a network problem.  Please post more details about your network setup, including firewalls, routers, version of Windows, which IP you're using to connect to FSHost, which machine FSHost and FS are running on, etc.  I'm sure someone here can help.

We finally got the Midwest-Aviation problem resolved.  Just an FYI for everyone else.

I was running an fshost session behind my firewall on another computer, and had the ports forwarded to my server.  Whenever I was to join the Midwest-Aviation server, things would go haywire, and everyone else would get booted.  I un-forwarded the ports on my router and all systems are go now......

This should have been obvious to me, however, as with many things, the obvious can be easily overlooked!

Hope this helps someone else in their problems, what a great product

btw-  the postcard is in the mail!

yea, what i have done since i am hosting an fshost and a teamspeak server on another computer is instead of forwarding the ports on my router just open them up and don't use port 23456 in my game(i use like 23457 for instance)
