Are you forwarding port 19800 to the PC running the server?

im using port number 19805 in the file, and im using this computer to attempt and forward it, what exact general steps should be followed? (not every step but just the overall major points)

Read this part again:

yzmxer608 wrote:Troubleshooting Connecting:
If people can't join your server there could be a couple things wrong.

  • The first is you have a firewall that is blocking them. You will have to let mx.exe be an exception to your firewall (every firewall is different, if you don't know how just search the internet).
  • A second possibility could be that you have to forward your router's ports for the port you are using for your server. To do this go to Port Forward. This website will NOT forward the ports for you, it will just tell you steps to take to do it. Find your router brand and model in the list, if you don't know the model take a look on your router and you should find a model number/name. That will take you to a page with the names of a bunch of programs, since the mxserver.exe is not listed just click some random program, we just need the directions for your router model.
  • Follow the directions until you get to the part where you enter the port forward parameters. When you get to that point select the UDP protocol and change it's port from 19800 to 19800 (or whatever port number you used in your args file). It doesn't matter what name you choose, I suggest mxserver so you will know which one it is later if you ever need to edit it. After that save the changes and you should be Ok.

You don't have to do anything with Hamachi at all. You can use it's guide as a guideline to see how to get into your router's firewall, though.
