dedicated host not on master server.
i am running a dedicated server and it shows as status online, but it is not showing up on the master server list.
i can connect to it from my local LAN, but not across the internet.

any idea's??
Post your setup file with the password(s) blanked out
You won't see a server running on your computer.

You must join it using IP. If you try to join other way you'll get an error.

I am able to connect locally, and i'm also able to telnet to port 63392 from a separate cell hotspot on my laptop meaning I can reach the dynamic IP of on that port and i see the LFS connection in the dedicated server yet i'm not listed on the master server list.

Are you using a router? Is your port forwarding set up correctly? Last time I had this problem I'd changed my computer's local IP and forgotten to change router setting

Hi All,

Thanks for the updates, changed the spaces out (tried that before), fixed insim. I am using a router, but the router is configured properly and the server is on a static IP.

I have port forwarding on the LFS port and I also have the firewall open.

Again I can connect remotely if I use the external address from my ISP via Telnet so I know I can get to my server. It's just not listing.

BTW Cargame, I'm trying to replicate a server like you have, which was originally IHR, but back in north america so the pings are acceptable. It's so Sad that LFS has such a small community and really no presence in the USA. I wish we would add this to steam and make a big sale or something to bring a rush of new players.

Anyone at all?
Just tried and got "connect timed out"
Did you remove that space in front servername?

Otherwise i can only think off firewall
hmmm I don't like steam software Smile
So strange.

Ok so I made my server the DMZ, disabled the firewall on the machine and tested it works (from cell hotspot)
I now connected again with he windows firewall on with the rules in place and it works...

So what other ports do I need to forward? I have only 63392 being forwarded to my internal server both udp and tcp, but that doesn't seem like it's enough to be listed on the master server list to be found.
"Could not open connection to the host, on prt 63392: Connect failed" Frown
So strange... Shitty Asus router.. I make no changes to rules, but put the machine on the DMZ, then disable the DMZ and now the rules are taking effect and the server is showing up.

Thanks for the help.

Their motherboards are not much better, in my experience :/
I got it working eventually, i can't remember what it was.
