Post Multiplayer help. Opening ports and dedicated server
How to open a game to the internet? I have tried port forwarding, disabled router firewall completely for a short time to test. What ports need to be opened or forwarded to?
Is it possible to set up a desktop or laptop as a dedicated server? Or how to set up dedicated server on any device?

Any help would be great cheers.

Solved, was being a Muppet.

For all other Muppets, firewall port exceptions are NOT the same thing as port forwarding. I assumed it was this because I've got other games working in the past this way. Firewall exception is NOT required, port forward only.

On virtual server/port forwarding tab in your router settings enter your phone/tablets local IP address. Then enter port 5123 (or whatever port you specify in rusted warfare settings menu) on both internet and local sides.

A guide on setting up dedicated servers would be great. I imagine itll be 2 player max games without dedicated server.

Is anyone else having problems that even though virtual server is set up correctly rw still says closed to internet? I used to be able to host no problems but I changed isp around the same time as updating rusted warfare and now I can't host.
Any suggestions?
