Can't join multiplayer server.[marked] [edit update]
« on: March 28, 2017, 04:14:32 PM »

So got a dedicated server setup. Its running. I can see it in the list of servers. Click to join it pops up the box saying "Waiting for server initialization"......... Connect Server Failed. Retry? pops up.

I can't log in. no one else can long in. no error log.  nothing. I've looked at both server and game log.
There is no indication that its even receiving the connect request. server machine is set as DMZ as well as port forwarding tried. on all 9900 ports.

Now my friend as hes the one who created the server can join. No one else can.
edit. After he logs off the server once its running, if he tries to log back into the server it wont let him with the same error.

This is the issue we get. How do we fix/get around it. whats wrong? is there a config setting we don't know about?

Standard Stable branch not dev.
Version 1.0.7.1

{Edit}
Windows 10 64bit.

ServerName= Expanse
lobbyroom #4016

It is public otherwise it would not show up in the list of interet games.
proxy isn't being used.

Can you log in MP now? We tested on windows, and it can work properly. If you still fails to log in, please post your OS and the server name you tried logging in.

Name of the server is Expanse. Its hosted on a separate machine from my own on my local network. This is the server firedrake also cannot connect to. I am running win10 x64 as well as the server.

Did you check on the 'proxy' and 'public' when you open the server?

Both 'Proxy' and 'Public' need to be true so that others can join your server through the Internet section.
