How to create a private LAN/Internet server?

I searched around a bit and didn't find anything relevant to this, so I'm sorry if this has been asked before.

A friend and I just want to set up a private server for us to play with/against each other with the AI, then close it when we're done. I've tried working with the launcher but we haven't been able to get it working. Here is what we've done:

1. I hit the Launch Server button from the launch menu.

2. Server launches, and I get the window saying the IP address for him to enter to join the game.

3. I go in the server, tell him the IP and server, then nothing happens.

 

We're probably doing something wrong, but I wanted to ask here because I'm not entirely sure how to get this working. I don't know much about LAN/Internet connectivity so I figured this would be the next logical step. Thanks in advance! 😊

So you're on a local network? I actually don't know the support for this in RenX. I know we were working on something. You'd probably have to connect using your local IP.

The IPv4 address would be the local IP I believe. In-game you could press f5, then type "open ip here". I am not sure though.

I would guess your port is open for it? Port 7777? If you have access, just port forwarding your router and using that instead of hamachi is a lot easier. You can also hide your server from the launcher so no one else can get your IP as well.

 

In C:\Program Files (x86)\Renegade X\UDKGame\Config\UDKRenegadeX.ini, set bListed to false. Your server will no longer appear on the launcher.

The listed IPv4 address is the same one that the game says to enter to join the server, so I don't think that's the issue. Port forwarding is also needing a lot of information that I just don't have access to (I.E., Default Gateway number,) so I think we're sunk. Oh well, we'll just stick to the public servers 😛

If you'd like, I can setup a private server for you to play around on.

https://wiki.renegade-x.com/wiki/Server

This documents all the different things to set up your own server,

However Port Forwarding is done on a per router basis

https://portforward.com/router.htm

This will give you a list of all the routers they have managed to get port forwarding on, and you can follow the guides.

Once you have done port forwarding, make sure you configure any firewall (including Windows) to accept inbound connections on that port.
