NETGEAR DG834G
« on: March 09, 2007, 05:14:08 AM »

Ok. I am getting very frustrated with this program.

Basically i can see the fshost webpage no problem  http://12.12.12.12:81

And ONLY i can connect to the game using local network ip.

But everything else cant connect to the game using my IP (not my network ip).

Basically they cant even see the session come up. I have tried everything!!!!

Its starting to get really annoying!


Help is appreciated, thanks..

If this is with FSX (not sure about other versions), then you need the following:

Port forward TCP 2010 and UDP 23456 to the hosting machine (server). Port address translation is required so your router knows where to send requests from users outside your LAN.

Also, make sure any firewall software running on the server has those ports allowed too.

Hope that helps,
Sammie

Hi Nitrate,

Ok, here's the full list of ports that need to be forwarded:

FS2002:
TCP 47624
UDP 2300 to 2400

FS2004 and FSX:
UDP 23456 (or your "2004 host port" on FSHost's Server / Options / Session tab)
UDP 6073
UDP 2302 to 2400 (not necessary if also forwarding 2300 to 2400 for FS2002)

Remote (web) Access, and for FSHostSpy to be able to find your session:
TCP 80 (or your Remote Access port on FSHost's Server / Options / Remote Access tab)

I can see in the Master Server logs that you've been able to register your FSHost ok, so that's good.  If you're still having problems, let us know specifics about your network setup, which type of router you have, IP addresses, which ports you've forwarded and where to, etc.  I'm sure someone here can help.

Thanks,
Russell
