Hosting Server help
« on: August 19, 2014, 02:08:58 am »
Hi All,

Was hoping to host semi public server for me and my friends (have reservered/white list, while allowing public on so add layer interaction),

I am wondering if this is possible in current build and if so is there a guide for creating this on windows based server.

If not would love to see these features if future.

Thanks in advance.

Tom

Hi Tom,

Reserved slots as far as I know do not exist at the moment. You can however host a server with a whitelist but then only the people on the list will be able to join.

You can run the server on Windows and Linux.
Here is the wiki page: http://wiki.atomictorch.com/VoidExpanse/Server_setup

@devs, can you move this whole post to the help section?

@Tom, if you have anymore questions let me know :)

Thanks kyokei,

Managed to get server up and works on local network, but when attempting to connect remotely session breifly connects on server console. Then loose connection.

Seems like its missing connection to master server.

Opened port for server and 4000 which master seems to use but no luck.

Any help would be great

Can you upload the server logs somewhere so I can take a look at them? Logs are found under voidexpanse/Server/Logs/
Did you make sure that you specifically have UDP open on port 5000?
Can you also specify what kind of system it's running on? (which windows) and if the .net framework version 4 is installed.

Hi All,

Thanks for the replies, narrowed down after going through the logs and my router logs, found my isp wasn't liking me, after remapping the ports, I can now connect externally.
