Standalone hosting issues
Wanna start by saying great game! Looking forward to what the future brings.

On to the issue at hand, I'm having trouble running a standalone server behind a router.

The ports are forwarded, TCP and UDP for both 7808 and 7117.
A computer behind router can find the dedicated server but it cannot be found through FS2net.
In Basic settings in the launcher Connection Type/Speed is set to LAN.
Is there any more steps required or am I simply missing something blatantly obvious?

Here's the multi.log that the server output:

Re: Standalone hosting issues
Well the simple question is, did you remember to give it a username and password? I'm not certain if it needs them but I haven't checked yet.

If that doesn't work, post again or better yet get on IRC and I'll troubleshoot with you.

Re: Standalone hosting issues
I've been looking around like crazy but been unable to find anywhere to input the username and password.
How would one go about setting that up?

Re: Standalone hosting issues
There are 2 ways to do this.  First is to simply launch the game normally and input your username/password like you were going to play.  The standalone will pick it up from there.  Second is to add the following lines to multi.cfg in the data folder.

+pxo_login   (FS2netD login name)
+pxo_password (FS2netD password)
+name      (name you want to server to have)

No-one ever listens to Zathras. Quite mad, they say. It is good that Zathras does not mind. He's even grown to like it. Oh yes. -Zathras

Re: Standalone hosting issues
Cheers fubar!

Unfortunately, no joy. Same problem as before.
For the record the machine is running Windows Server 2011.

If anyone would like to take a crack at a troubleshoot I'll try be on IRC loads the next few days.

EDIT:
Did a test with a standalone server on my own PC (Win 7 x64), no problems what so ever.

Re: Standalone hosting issues
If you are running a firewall then you need to set it so that the machines IP is visible to the net.  Also some antivirus software will block FS2_Open as it thinks the networking is a worm so you may need to add an exception there as well as to your firewall.

If that doesn't work. Get on IRC and I'll see if we can figure out the cause together in real time.

Re: Standalone hosting issues
As per request I've linked the logs after running the server in debug mode.

fs2_standalone.log
multi.log

Enjoy!
