Quote from joordy599 :hi thx its nice info if i start my host i see it only in the master server but if i click on the server name and on go its says always times-out so befor i can make a host so the problem was my router was crashed

// a high number below 65536
/port=63392

1. If you use the same computer for Dedi host and LFS game DONT USE the port 63392 in dedi host , change it , probably in 99% you will not see your server from lfs game in server list, because the LFS game using the same port.
2. chek your firewal on your computer , usualy windows ask you to unblock or not the port when you start first time your dedi server , watch what are you clicking
3. if you have any type of router you must to open on him the port what are your dedi lfs server using (sea the manual for your router)
4. now in this point if not working normaly the dedi lfs server you shoud try upgrade , or reinstall your router firmwere , because like me you maybe have problem with router softver , and the upgrade or reinstall can fixed that , but carefuly this you are doing on your own risk , iff you are not experienced in this stuf you shoud ask profesional help



Oups now I see the date off the post, sorry , that guy fixed his problem a long time ago , but , I will leave the post , not erased , maybe will help someone others who has the same problem.

Hey there,

both PING and tracert work fine. Any info on what port would need to go out so i can check for that on the fw ? Even tho that should be open from inside to the outside. Anything else i might have wrong ? IPs for ping and tracert-end seem fine.

I am getting the "Can't connect to masterserver" error when trying to unlock S2.

Kind Regards,
Thorsten
You might want to check out this thread for some pointers and port numbers. What FW do you have?

Alright i'm lost...
I've gone into my settings and opened the ports with TCP and UDP and also 29339 or something as tcp.
But i'm still getting the Master server connection problem so ??
Heres my setup, and ping and trace. i did the ping and trace while the dedi was NOT running.. I didn't know if you were supposed to or not ?

What should it be then ?
If i use my router ip it comes up with the TCP socket bind failed error.
Quote from RX-7 :What should it be then ?

It should be the address assigned to your computer.

It would be something like 192.168.1.64 or 10.0.0.64 or something similar.

You can't use 127.0.0.1 because that's an address that is only used internally.

From a Windows command prompt, use the "ipconfig" command. Then look at the line that says "IP Address". It will tell you what you need to know.

My problem is when i connect to a server it displays : CPW and then lost connection to host.

@TA1LGATER you might consider not using a cheat... that helps connecting to online servers.

However, did anyone notice some glitches yesterday evening? between 9:30 and 10:00 German time (8:30 to 9:00pm in UK) I had great problems connecting to one of our servers and also this forum, LFSW and our team forum were not reachable or very slow.

Sometimes I was able to connect to our server, but lost connection quite soon and I very often got a "connecting to masterserver" that timed out....

Since my team mates and all other racers on our server got disconnected at the same time, I don´t think that there only was a problem with my internet connection. German websites worked very well and fast - only (some) UK based sites and the LFS servers hosted at 500servers seemed to have problems.

is anyone else have problems with the master server or is it just me + team mate?

I'm just going to restart LFS and the dedicated host, and see if that worked.

(!xtz!) DELETED by !xtz!
Hi,

Check 1 was negative
Check 2 aswell

Results :


Check 3 : I don't have a firewall. Only Microsoft Security Essentials. I also found no firewall option there so I guess that not the problem aswell.





I timed out yesterdayevening and from that moment I couldn't connect to any server anymore. The hostlist didn't load anymore aswell.

Thanks in advance if anyone could help me !
I tried the pinging again and now I get this. It still doesn't work though

Hi guys, i'm new to lfs and have downloaded the demo version so i can decide if i want to buy the s2 pack.. I have a problem tho, because in every server i try to connect it says host did not recieve udp packet... I did all the tests and here are the results. Any help?

Test 1



Test 2

Can someone plz help?

Thx
Quote from Stefan8 :[...] in every server i try to connect it says host did not recieve udp packet...

Hi, welcome to the LFS and the forum. Too bad to hear that you're having trouble connecting. Going through this thread, what I understand is that since you can ping the master server the basic stuff seems to be working. The problem might lie with your router or your ISP as discussed here:

Quote from Calbond :Only a few servers come up for me and it wont let me on even if i use join specific host it loads until messages then says Host did not recieve UDP packet.

Quote from Victor :We've done a lot of research into reasons why that could happen but we could only conclude that either your router or ISP is having problem routing UDP packets. Some ISP's seem to block really tiny UDP packets for example. Others just don't like UDP at all, albeit temporary usually.

Check your firewall and router settings so that LFS is allowed to communicate via UDP packets. I'm not sure if in this case if the ISP is blocking the UDP packets...

Hopefully someone who knows about these will help you out. Good luck!
What is with master server?

DEDI say: "Could not connect to master server."

EDIT: problem with my ISP, I think...
Sky Broadband does not let me run servers, but Zen did, it looks like a isp problem.

Also master servers can get grouchy if you keep starting and stopping a server, the master tends to ignore servers like that for a few hours.
