The host being me :D
I've only had GPL about 17 years and still yet to host a race.
Having another go having got a new router (netcomm NB304N)  with software that actually opens

John Roberts kindly explained the existance of TCP/UDC...who would have thought !

i have a question :)
The "server IP address" the port forward page is asking for...
Is that the IP my pc is connecting to the web with ?
or the address of the actual router?
cheers for any clues
pete

The ip addy for port forward should be the ip addy for the hosting machine.
Typically something like "192.168.1 something".

i thought of hosting practice, thru Vroc.
i don't know what has changed (If anything) as i used to host thru Vroc, before my league switched to iGor.
now, i can't even log in to vroc! not to mention no racelist, i see chat but i don't know if anyone sees my chat.

i can't host because the 'host' tab is greyed out.

however, on my racing PC i can log in, and see a racelist.
both pc's have the same vroc.ini ... what am i not doing?
where to start looking for fixing?

i didn't change anything in Vroc.
i have rebooted, even shutdown and restarted the server.
and turned off the router/modem and restarted it.

i'm at a loss what to do :P
i'm lost...and now, just hope i can host when iGor returns Posted Image

Managed to open ports without the inevitable error box :)
does this look right ?
How does it know when to open them ?
Is putting GPL in the name enough ?
Thanks :)

Using my mate Andrew as the join tester she no go
saying timed out.


Have tried this lot too
"net_mdm_client_send_every = 3 ; Client packet freq on dialup
net_mdm_client_send_size = 84 ; Client packet size on dialup
net_mdm_server_send_every = 3 ; Server packet freq on dialup
net_mdm_server_send_size = 132 ; Server packet size on dialup
net_use_mdm_bandwidth_for_tcp_ip = 1"
