Unm... just a question... The Server that you run can only be demo? Or you can run a s2 server? If you can run a s2 server, how do you do it?

Help me>.<

/mode=x
Where x is either "demo", "S1" or "S2".
Ohs... ok... But now i need a lil help again... i followed the instructions but my dedi's console states OFFLINE not ONLINE? Can any1 help?
You'll get that if it can't talk to the master server - if you're trying to run a LAN only game you need to make sure that /usemaster=no.

If you are making an online server make sure that you can resolve and ping master.liveforspeed.net ("ping master.liveforspeed.net" to do both in one go)...

Unm... Soo wat you mean is that change a setting in one of the setup configs? And i pmed you... can you help me with that sector to? Pls an thx ^.^
Can someone please help me?

I have two seperate issues but will tackle them one at a time.

My set-up : I have a PC and a Laptop the PC is connected directly to the modem.
The Laptop is connected directly to PC via a LAN Cable (absolutely no wireless involved)

I created a simple config on my PC and ran the dedicated host app.
Logged onto LFS with the laptop - Connect Via LAN - No Problems
Searched the Multiplayer lists found my Server connected without issue.

All good you would think, well none of my friends can join the server they get an error "Connection Failed"

Any ideas what could be causing the problem?
hi,anyone know why after i hosted a server and my friends can find but when connect it ..it show connection to server timed out . i already follow the guide from port forward website.
I am trying to get this thing running on Gentoo Linux, but am still getting:

Quote :wine LFS.exe /cfg=setup.cfg
Application tried to create a window, but no driver could be loaded.
The X11 driver is missing. Check your build!

The server starts normally with the values from my config file.

// nogfx/invisible
/dedicated=invisible

This should be right? What am I missing?
Check your config on a windows box. You can get that if you've made a mistake and it tried to create a dialog error message...
I tried on Windows, it runs fine..
The server seems to run fine as well apart from that error. I assume it's also not possible to enter lfs console commands from linux?

Sorry I assumed that you were getting back to the shell prompt. Receiving those warnings are normal, as long as LFS continues to run.

And no it's not.
Thank you.
I also found out how to use the admin password by now

You've set your port forwarding up incorrectly. May I suggest that you remove those and start again using portforward.com as a guide.
okay it works!

*full of happiness*
Hamed Sam: You're having issues with your connection to the servers - this thread probably isn't the best to ask about that, but it could be simply geographical or network distance to the server you're trying to connect to, poor connection from your ISP to various other parts of the internet (which will result in lag, as it has to travel a long way), or your ISP has decided to throttle the traffic LFS produces (can be done, and commonly LFS traffic is mis-shaped as file-sharing, etc.)

Piilu: Hoorah
I have a problem with a server I'm trying to host:

Sometimes it shows up in the serverlist, sometimes not. LFS Desktop (racers & hosts online) shows it everytime. And the only way to join is via 'join specific host (local network)' ontherwise (in the best case) you get to the welcome.txt text, then it goes to 'waiting for guest info' and then you get the message 'did not recive guest info, lost connection to host'.

The servername is:

# TEST #

I can send you screenshots of all the diferent settings via pm if you want.
I'd be willing to put money on the fact that it's fine 100% of the time for everyone outside of your network. There's absolutely no requirement to use the in-game list when you're hosting and connecting to the server, on the same LAN.
Did you tried it? Because yesterday I hosted the same server (same configuration) under another name. In the dedicated server window appeared the text

send track : 91.176.255.123 (fake adres, just as example)
send track : 91.176.255.123
alive : 91.176.255.123
connect : 91.176.255.123
new guest timed out

This happend a few times, each time a different adress
