Other fun missions - port forwarding at home
« on: December 15, 2014, 04:16:30 AM »

Hi clowns,

yesterday we didn't succeed in hosting a mission from our home system. Now I got it running. So I can host a fun mission, if some some clowns are interested. I have at least three of them: special racing, tunnels and hangars (kind of stunt flying), tunnel of stars...

Regards

If you have more than one PC (or phone or Ipad or whatever) connected to your router at home, then each time you reboot them they will be given a different address.  This means that you port-forward  for your PC on the address 192.168.1.5 (e.g) but on the next reboot the address of that PC changes and port-forwarding doesn't work any more.  Either force your network to give your PC a fixed address, or check its address and alter the port-forwarding accordingly before each hosting.
