PROBLEM WITH FS 2004 PLEASE IM PULLING MY HAIR OUT
« on: June 20, 2005, 02:43:53 PM »

HI
My name is Garret
im having trouble with 2004 session.

I can create an fs 2002 session np but when i try to create an fs2004 sessions it reports and error on port 6073 so i took your advise diconnected from the internet and started the sesson it worked.  Then I could not see my session on FSHOSTspy and not connect to the Remote access page.  Then i changed the port from 80 to 4500.  Now i am able to connect for remote access.

The problem i am having is People cant see my session on FSHOSTspy(I checked with other peples comps besides  my own)  Also when an fs2004/2002session is
started most 2002 can connect and all 2004s cant.  They report that the game is not visible from my external IP

I am fowarding these ports from a LINKSYS router
6073 udp
2300-2400 both prot.
47624 both
23595 UDPfor 2004
4500 for R.A.

Please when you get  a chance
thanks, garrett

Hi Garret,

You said you're forwarding UDP port 23595.  Is there some reason you're using that instead of the default UDP 23456?  If you use a different port, you'll need to tell your users to change to use that port in FS2004 also.  Otherwise, try forwarding UDP 23456 and see what happens.

As for not showing up on FSHostSpy, I can see on the Master Server that your FSHost hasn't tried to register with the server since June 16th -- at least not from the IP you posted this forum message from, if it's the same as for your FSHost.  Are you getting any messages in the FSHost window when it first starts up and tries to register with the Master Server?

Hi Russel thanks for the quick reply

I use 23595 because when i use 23456 it gives me an error and says use 23457 23458 instead.  (People trying to connect are using this port)

When I have to start a 2004 seesion i have to disconnect from the internet other wise i get a error message that says 6073 udp is being used which its not so i creat the session and connect back up to the internet it says remote access is stared.  But when people try to connect they can find it.  When I have a 2002 sesion all 2002 can connect fine but the combo mostly everybody cant see the game.
When 2004 try to search for the session i get a message that says ERROR: FS2004 Session not found.

Thanks Garrett

Yes I am also having the same problem. I recently downloaded the beta version as well and it doesent work on the beta or 3.0.  The message says:
060719 04:33:05  ERROR creating FS2004 session. DirectX is reporting an error because UDP port 6073 is already in use. This can often be fixed by disabling your firewall or reconfiguring it to allow this port to be used by FSHost. McAfee's PrivacyService can also cause this problem. Some users have also reported that disconnecting their router from the internet before starting FSHost can fix the problem. I have all my firewalls OFF (including my router's) and 6073 forewarded to my machine. Any help is appriciated.
Can I get a fast reply as well? I have to leave Friday for a while.

Thanx :)
