Server Not Public... No Direct IP Join Either

5 posts in this topic

So I got an Exile server up and running. I can join it. I can play on it. Runs great! However, it is not showing up on the public Internet server list and also players cannot join using my IP.

I port forwarded 2302 - 2305 on both Windows Firewall and my Router. The thing about the router is, I'm not sure which choice I am supposed to PF on. My router has three choices to use port forwarding, only one of which can use the host program at a time - The router, my PC, or the IP address. I've tried all three and still no luck. I followed ALL of the directions posted here about the install but still nothing.

I've exhausted all resources that I can think of. If any of you have any suggestions or can point me to a thread I may have missed that would be awesome. Thanks!

Nevermind. I've narrowed it down to my antivirus firewall. For some reason it will not allow UPD to communicate. If I shut down the firewall my server shows up. But that's not an option sooooooo. Just gotta figure out how to let it allow UDP connections.

Add arma3server.exe as an exception to firewall.

Yeah, I did that but my AV still wasn't allowing it. Ended up deleting all of the rules for it and ran it in Interactive Mode so I could manually OK all of the connections. Now it works like a charm. :)

You need to add TCP and UDP to the firewall for it to allow to be seen by the public.

PS: and the steam ports ;)
