Topic: pvpgn can connect internal but not external
I have pvpgn setup on my machine and can connect w/ both open and closed from the same machine that pvpgn is running on.
I've opened up my firewall and set up port forwarding in my router.
I had all of my friends use the gateway editor to add my server ip address.
None of my friends can connect to my server. I don't see any messages in the logs of attempted connections. Their screens say "Connecting to fastest server" and then eventually they get a "Could not connect".
I verified that my friends could ping my ip address.
Where should I look to address this issue?
I tried changing bnetd.conf servaddrs to "internalIP,externalIP", but I get an error in pvpgn that it couldn't bind to my external IP.
Thanks for the help in advance, I know I'm close to having this working.
