Create my own server for playing with friends on internet

Hello,
I have installed the AVP2 AiO and Master Server Patch 2.4 and the game plays very nicely. I can join the any of the existing visible game on the master server, but I was wondering if it is possible for me to host my own games to play with friends on the internet.
When I "host internet game" and create a dedicated server, I cannot see it in the list of active server.
Am I missing something or is it just not possible?
(PS: I can see the game if I join it as a LAN game)

Hello & Welcome!

You need to open ports - Port 27888 is the default one for AvP2 Servers.

This seems to be a router issue on your end.


Good Luck

Cheers

Thanks a lot for your quick response. Greatly appreciated.
Unfortunately, after opening the port in the firewall and the router, it doesnít seem to have made a difference. Iíll keep looking in case i missed a firewall rule or something.
Let me know If there is anything else worth looking into.
Many thanks.

Make sure you have the latest "server files"

http://avpunknown.com/avp2master/msp/avp2_tbbc_server_app_2.4.zip


Make sure you allow access to lithtech.exe and avp2serv.exe

Port 27888 is default but you can change it to something else.

Cheers

Thanks. Unfortunately, nothing did it. I even tried switching off the pc firewall and the router firewall, but still the same. I can see many servers (circa 40) but not my own (except in LaN).
I noticed this topic in the Faq:

ďQ: Why can I host a server but I not join my own server?
This is caused by having different rez files specified on the command lines for the game server and the game client...Ē

As i donít have any command line specified, i didnít think much of it. But do i need to specific a specific rez?

Look in your server config files for "customrez.txt"  everything should be pre-set.


Try again because the link i gave you is the latest files.

Try a different port

But if you see it on "LAN" then that tells me your router is blocking it for worldwide access.

Thanks for your help.
Still havenít resolved the issue as described (i have tried signing a different port to), but surprisingly other people can access my server! Myself, i need to join by LAN, but others can join by internet and see it in the server list...
I guess we can close this topic now as it allows me to play with others!
