I've tried hosting again after numerous failed attempts. Still can't get it to work. Whenever I try to join my own server with my laptop I get a time out. (I use the laptop as racing machine and can join other servers ok)
Tried opening the ports as described here:
Port 113 (TCP/incoming) - not essential
Port 6970 (UDP/outgoing)
Port 6971 (UDP/incoming)
Port 6667 (TCP/outgoing)
Port 30196 (TCP/incoming)
Port 30196 (TCP/outgoing)
Port 30197 (TCP/outgoing)
Port 30198 (TCP/incoming)
Port 30198 (TCP/outgoing)
Port 30199 (UDP/outgoing)
Ports 32766-32786 (UDP/incoming)
As a last resort I tried hosting with the firewall turned off completely, still no joy. I have patched the server GPL with the bwpatch, number 1, and number 2, setting 2. BW settings 3/84 3/132 .
I have never opened ports before but opened them as described on Windows' website. Even if I didn't do it correctly, things should still work with the firewall disabled completely, yet they do not. I don't know what is blocking connections any ideas?
