Topic: redvex\pvpgn connection question
Im running my own pvpgn server that me and a few friends play on. Everything runs great and I don't have any issues with connecting through redvex to the pvpgn server from any of the clients. Where im having an issue is on the computer running the server. If I try to use redvex on the server computer no matter what I do I cannot connect through redvex. If I regedit the realms and lets just say its called PVPGN REALM.. no matter if I make it ..
when I go to connect even with redvex not running im still only connecting to the pvpgnserver and its not even trying to connect through redvex.. I had this working once before so I know its possible. But now ive moved the server to a different pc and set everything up again and now I cant make it work for the life of me!! im sure that I found my answer to this on the pvpgn forums but they've been down so Im hoping someone here has a clue.
basically on the computer hosting the server, localhost IS the realm so when I set it to localhost it connects right to the realm and not to redvex.. I think it has something to do with settings in the address translation file in pvpgn but im at a loss here lol..
any help would be greatly appreciated.
also.. ive never been able to get the multithreaded d2gs to work at all. is there a different setup to make it run?
