If it's working correctly then it should be on the master list automatically. All you need to do is have any port forwarding, firewall rules, etc. set to allow access and to tell it to use the master server in setup.cfg (which it does by default).
There's a list of track names in the first post, and the admin commands can be found in X:\Where\You\Installed\LFS\docs\commands.txt, under the second heading entitled
Hey BlackKnight. I suffered this problem too a few days ago. However, it looked a little more like this...
New Guest Timed out New Guest Timed out New Guest Timed out New Guest Timed out New Guest Timed out
You get the idea? I wasn't 100% sure what was going on, I'm still not. I decided to try changing my ports to much lower ports. I am now using 29999 for insim and 39999 TCP/UDP. The problem seemed to solve its self in an instant, I can only assume that my ISP (Eclipse) does not like me to use higher ports. Give it a try and see what happens. You can always put it back if it does not solve your issues.
Hi Psysim,Thanks for the quick reply.i did try changing to (39999 & 63392 & 1700) an i didnt get any hits....so i changed back and now its worse!!
I currently have /insim and port number in ded host setup config file
// optional: InSim port
// a high number below 65536
/port=1723<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<this is number what i got after i did p/f of TCP 63392
TCP:HTTP / 80;10. 0. 0. 1---TCP;2933910. 0. 0. 1----UDP63392----10. 0. 0. 1----TCP:TELNET / 23;10. 0. 0. 1----TCP:PPTP / 17231:0. 0. 0. 1
How'eva my routers a siemens speedstream 4200,running adsl+2
and i have forwarded my ports 63392TCP/UDP with service PPTP,plus the added one of TCP 29339.
My question is maybe my port number is too low......or wrong port forwarding ?? Plus++ people's only seem to get in if im connected via my game,Ded host sitts there just timing most guests out while im not there.but even if i am there with guests....crazzzy any idea's guy's pleeeassee....
All good,I sorted the problem......(was port nomber i had used was in the wrong range (e.g.to low a port no.)
ohh,an i think it might have been slow in my connection that might have caused the timeout's getting worse.
Pc spec's: AMD 64@2ghz/2Gb ram+ nvidia Gforce 7600 GT with 200Gb H/D............
That is very very odd. I can't understand why it should get worse just from changing it back.
You could try (if you have good security on your server) putting the IP address of your server into the DMZ to see what happens. I have tried this just so that I can bypass the port settings. I wouldn't leave it in the DMZ but its worth testing. Would like to know of the results.
Forget about the insim port for now, it should not make a difference unless your running an insim remotely and it's only going to add confusion.
Another thing that could make a difference is the actual hardware installed by your line provider? Yes, the actual phone line from exchange to your house. This could be hard for you to answer but what is it made from? The reason I ask is because my house was built during the strikes in the copper mine's here in the UK. The operators were at that time forced to use aluminum for phone cables and these cables cause me a lot of issues. Thank god I live in a cul-de-sac as any HGV that passes by snaps these lines.
Anyone else have any ideas? I myself am a little stumped by this issue.
Having problems here. I tried to set up a server and I can see it on Lfsworld but nobody can connect (ClientConnect: connect failed).
I called my ISP, the tech told me that all ports should be open. I followed the LFSwiki instructions but it still won't work.
I noticed on other servers that false starts result in a penalty, but the driver stays in the race.
However on my server (Z3, s2, Dedicated) whenever a driver false starts, they get a penalty message but then get spectated instantly.
Is it possible to shut off the spectate, and leave them in the race with the original penalty?
I believe you are mistaken. The effects that you speak of are not server options.
On all servers, you will first receive a penalty when doing a false start. If you immediately stop your car you will not be removed from the grid. It is when you keep on moving you will be removed. I suppose it is a measure to prevent disruptive players from crashing in to other cars before green (which obviously would have given the innocent driver a false-start penalty as well).
Perhaps you were so eager to see what happened on your server that you did not try to move just a little bit?
Now I feel really dumb lol. That was it. If I had false started on another server I always stopped quickly, but during testing of my own server I'd just keep going. I just tested it on my server and it worked. thanks bunches!
I feel dumm, Im wanting to create a host for a small league and it seems on alocal host i can connbect to the dedcated host but from out side I cant. Im not sure what wrong i followed the instructions recheaked them but still no joy.
the joining people get connection timed out if this helps
Iv sorted the above out but know i have a new problem ( i think it my router that the problem and the way to sort it out is to move it. so my problem is:
Iv set up a host for a lan game and when i connect the local Laptops up they go online( to the host fine for say 30 secs then they disconnect andthen when i try and re connect to the host, a messagew boxapprears saying host timed out
i think as im having problems with my Wireless network in my host picking up the siginals asthe wireless card in it is not very powerful. so It should be a easy fix, ofmoving the router back in to the study
Check your config on a window box, or a box with an X server. The odds are that there's something wrong with your config and LFS is throwing an error message up, which will create a messagebox (which requires an X server).
After reading all instruction (good work mate) i try to start with dedicated host a server.
From the panel i receive "status online".
If i start LFS and i try to connect in local to 192.168.1.28 i can connect to my server and game.
But if i find it online, in lfs world, i can't find it.
I've opened in router 63392 in tcp and ucp and 29339 in tcp.
I also set firewall that permit lfs.exe and port 63392 and 29339.
Which is the problem ?
I use a specified IP (my external) and if a use o not ( xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx) don't change anything.
The server now is online, the name is "Demolition Park", autocross, can u see it ?
updated: interesting !!! the server is online, but in S1 !!!
Why if a use this in my config.cfg ?
