Cannot host a server

Post by Glitch(TMG) » Sat Jul 11, 2015 1:53 am

I don't know if anyone's even going to see this, but... I've been trying to host a SotS 1 game, but the guy I'm testing with has been unable to connect to me. He keeps getting an "invalid address" error.

I made sure to start my game in LAN mode, not internet mode, so that my buddy can use direct connect with my IP address.

We've double-checked he's using the correct public IP address.

I am behind a router, and have portforwarded the port 3369 to my PC. I tried this in both TCP/UDP and UDP mode.

I have checked my firewall, and SotS is an allowed program.

I don't know what else to do or what could be wrong. If anyone sees this, does anyone have any ideas what could be wrong?

Hi Glitch,

I've managed some time ago to host a game with these sots.ini settings:

Code: Select all

[Network]
HeartbeatPeriod=2000
ConnectionTimeout=120000
HostPort=3369
LanScanPort=3369
[CPU]
ForceSingleCore=1


Dunno if it could help you, I've used GameRanger too.
