Question adout multiplayer
I am sorry, is it possible for 2 people to play FSMultiplayer from the same house?
I've tried it, but when the second player joins the game he gets kicked out with a message that says:

"There is already an identical player in-game" or something.

Is there a way out of this or not?

Please help me.  :)
Thanks.
"Hmmm..."

Re: Question adout multiplayer
are we talking about you playing against each other on lan , or both of you joining fs2net and playing online ...;

it looks like your trying to join fs2net but on the same IP addess; so fs2net will see you as one person and kick one of you

You're right. But is there a way for us to play together?
Like one of us change something so that we don't look identical to FSNet?

Re: Question adout multiplayer
make sure your computers are hooked up and your internet connection is off-line and see if you can connect

Re: Question adout multiplayer
What.

shiva2552: Sorry, but no. If you're both sitting behind the same router, you will not be able to connect to fs2netd at the same time. You can play over LAN, but you won't be able to connect to fs2netd.

Re: Question adout multiplayer
Is it possible for one of us to connect using a different IP (e.g the IP of an office of mine)?

Re: Question adout multiplayer
The answer remains the same. If you're behind the same router, that is, share the same external IP, only one of you will be able to connect to fs2netd. If your office has a different connection, then it's possible.

Re: Question adout multiplayer
I'm sorry but there is just one more thing...

In the FSO launcher, I notice that there is a "Force IP Adress" option.
So, can one computer use the router's IP and the other one "force" its IP to the IP of the Office?

If "Force IP Adress" doesen't work, is there any other way to do this?
"Hmmm..."

Re: Question adout multiplayer
what The E is on about is that you have a router which connects you to the internet, now the simplified explanation goes along the lines of on your side of that router everything on the network has an IP address, but as the signals go through the router to the wider internet the signal is assigned the routers IP address, this is typically assigned by your internet provider and cannot be changed and it is this address which fs2netd sees

Re: Question adout multiplayer
*sigh*

I see a lack of understanding here.

When your computer connects to the internet, what it actually does is to connect to your router, which then acts as a gateway to the larger internet.
Your PC's IP is not visible to the Internet (and by extension, the fs2netd server), your router's IP is. This is what's called an external IP.
You can use a site like http://www.whatsmyip.org/ to find out what your external IP is.
If two PCs are behind the same router, they will share an external IP, and thus look to the internet like one single machine.

The Launcher's "Force IP" will not work over the Internet, as it just forces your local IP to whatever you set there. Which is a bad idea, possibly won't work, and should only be used if you really, really know what you are doing.

Re: Question adout multiplayer
What you can try is using force port.  The default is 7808.  Set the second computer to 7809.  You will need to set firewall and router to handle 7809 for the second PC just as you did 7808 for the first.

Re: Question adout multiplayer
Did anyone make sure they both have different FS2NetD accounts configured?  Sounded more like that was the problem, unless FS2NetD blocks more than one connection from the same IP, in which case nothing can be done about that.

Re: Question adout multiplayer
FS2NetD is built on the assumption that there's only one player per IP, IIRC.

Re: Question adout multiplayer
Not just FS2NetD, PXO and FreeSpace2 itself make that assumption.

Re: Question adout multiplayer
I presume this is a symptom of the era FS2 was released when most ppl still only had 1 PC per house and if they had more than 1 chances were only 1 had an internet connection so writing additional code to handle more than 1 player down a given IP was unnecessary
