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"
so got a problem too, i am connecting to my server, and its says "Connect timed out" i can see my server in LFSworld, i also can join it in local network. i think i am done most of things right, but there is one thing i am not sure of. also default open port is 113. so maybe someone just edit it with paint and put right numbers to right place?:P
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.)
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.
