Attached is very unfinished draft that at least offers an outline and may answer some questions.

The port numbers are listed in the Easy Install Guide in the part about on-line racing.

Good to see you on track earlier.
Think maybe you missed my answer there?

Which was, ask here.

Hello Singion,

If you have problems with the port settings on your router I could post some screens how mine is set.
Every router is a bit different to set port forwarding.


John, that is a nice draft for a hosting guide. Do you mind if I would pick it as a base, rework/ improve/ finish it and put it on GPLWORLD one day?
More via PM. ;)

Thanks, and yes of course, happy if it can help.

thanks all for the help and thanks for the discord invite,


one other thing i have noticed on the server is it will crash when the race is over and it resets to the next track
this only seems to happen with addon tracks, the original tracks are fine
way to many to test but see it with spa67,

For many tracks like Spa67 there are special light server versions,
look if you have them,
Ginetto has posted his versions in a thread
