port forwarding
« on: August 23, 2009, 04:06:17 PM »
hey there.
i have noticed either that most /lots of players have/nt their ports and routers set correctly to host multi as 90% of game i see have 'time out error'. i know the great Dubman posted a link but maybe could we do a general post to all members and explain it and also maybe a easily understood script of how to set up for those of us who aren't in the IT game. i know some players have been struggling to set it up.
also solo is good for a while but the whole point of this game is Multi's and the interaction in a mars colony setting.

I agree but the freebie download doesn't mean they read the docs or even understand what it is. I get alot of wierd remarks. There are buttons and messages all over this thing to get help but some people just wont read.

Hyper, is there a specific port range to for MCO?  Like when forwarding ports for other games they usually want a certain range opened.  Half Life 2 liked ports 24000 to 24700 forwared.

I have read and figured out how to forward my ports but, need to know what range if possible.

Thanks

MCO client works fine from NAT, no need portforwarding

If run Mars Colony demo server v 2.37 then you must forward ports range 28000-28002 TCP and UDP
from public IP firevall/nat to your private IP.

That is correct Ivan. No need to forward ports when connecting to a server.
Mars:Surveyor will be like the old demo and we will need to have this info handy
