But... there is a usage statistics plugin that comes with the server, and you can check it, manually making the changes.
(you should run a web server too, so others can see)
I would like to be there for testing too. So if you could just post here when it goes up
I could test if I can connect. You might need to foreward the port used. For example, you need to foreward the port used for Call of Duty 4 if you host a server for that, or else no one will be able to join. I used a port I had been forewarding to get a basic PO server set up once.
It's up. ''BMG Test Server'' on port 5080. Axew already tried connecting to it, but timed out. Let's see if you guys are luckier than him.
Timed out for me.
Timed out too
Its probably happening because there's either a NAT or a firewall between the internet and the server. Check that.
My firewall's turned off on my computer. Gimme a sec, currently trying to access my router config page to check some stuff.
"To unblock this port, go into your modem/router's configuration page and forward it to your local I.P address. You can find your local I.P address by opening command prompt and typing ipconfig /all. Beside I.P Address will be your local I.P address.
To open command prompt, click "Start", then "Run", then type in cmd. If you need help on forwarding your port, you can find a guide for your router here: http://portforward.com/english/routers/port_forwarding/routerindex.htm Select your router from that list then click on any of those programs. Instead of using the port number they tell you to, use the server port number you set (default 5080)"
All testers, try connecting to it now. I managed to connect to it just now, so I guess it'll work for you guys too.
Seems to be working, now.
As has been said, it works.
Will there be a Bulbanews Post when it's officially up?
