Server will not show in Master server list.

I have followed the wiki instructions and searched this forum extensively to solve most of the problems that I had to begin with. I am now down to posting for advice and help.

System specs:
AMD Athlon 3200+
2 gigs RAM
Windows XP Professional

I could list out all of the specs but I think that this is enough as it is not really a hardware issue. This sever is just going to be for a few friends, no more than 5 at a time.

I have used the following string to start the server from a DOS prompt. The login is unique to the server.

Code:
UT3.exe Server DM-ShangriLa?game=UTGame.UTDeathmatch?bShouldAdvertise=True?ServerDescription=077000097000100 -log=MyServerLog.txt -login=####### -password=####### -unattended
This is the new server window that opens and the text from there:

It is possible that my entire problem stems from troubleshooting at around 4am but I also run a F.E.A.R. server and it advertises to the master list just fine.
This box is hooked directly to a cable modem with nothing but the windows firewall and the UT3.exe is in the exceptions list. If I can just get it to advertise to the master server I will be happy and can then go on to making more changes like locking it down with a password.

Pointing out stupidity on my part is expected. Thanks for taking the time to read this.

The server was listed in the UTGame.ini so I removed it from the command line. I also checked to see if it was showing under the gamespy login, it isn't. The cable modem is giving the server, which is only hosting the dedicated server, a public IP but I went ahead and set a multihome anyway. I specifically opened the UDP ports 6500 and 7777 in the windows firewall. All good suggestions but still not showing and the output of the command to start the server looks good to me.

Thanks for taking the time to answer. Oh I also host a F.E.A.R. server from the same box and it is working fine. I don't know if that last comment helps any but at least one server is getting out.

Well you could try downloading qstat and run a query against the query port (6500) to see if it even replies locally. If it doesn't you have an issue somewhere with the game setup. If it does then you may have a gamespy login issue.

qstat -R -gs4 x.x.x.x:6500

On my NAT'd server I can run the query on the LAN ip internally and it responds ok, then from outside the network i can do the same for the Internet address.

That's all i've got for suggestions, good luck.

No response.

Perhaps I am doing something really stupid like starting the server wrong. Here is how I am starting the server:
Open command prompt
CD to Binaries for UT3.exe
Paste in startup script
Hit return.

This spawns a new dos window that has the results of the command. If all of this is correct and I am fairly sure that I have a unique gamespy login for the server then I am stuck. I even reinstalled the server making sure that all anti-virus was turned off. This is begining to make me think that this is my ISP and some sort of port blocking. I changed ports to 5500 just to see what would happen with the same results, no response to a qstat. I have a linux server that dual boots on the same box and it does the same thing. Next I am going to switch to a different box entirely and see what happens then. Thanks for the response.

Your command line works fine from a DOS window in UT3/binaries on my home PC behind a firewall. BUT only if I add the -multihome=192.168.x.x line with the private address I have NAT'd to the outside world.

What's your network IP config ?

cablemodem-PC
cablemodem-router-PC
cablemodem-PC-LAN

do an "ipconfig" in a DOS window and paste the result here.
do a "route print" in a DOS window and paste the result here.

You do have the patch applied to the dedicated server ?

Ummmm, no. No patch installed on the server. Guess that I will go out and get that right now. BTW I can only find one patch for the client. Can that be applied against the server as well?

Installed patch, no difference. Server is running in processes under task manager but it still will not respond to a qstat with either the loopback or the public IP.

Well all looks ok .... very last suggestion is try using at a command prompt netstat -n -a to ensure that the 6500 port and the 7777 port are being assigned to the expected IP address of 69.178.xx.xx.

I'd try turning off the windows firewall completely too for just a minute too see if that's the culprit.

Even if the ports show up in netstat it doesn't mean the query will work, which means ... i really now am out of ideas.

try it without the server discription since it's not supported anymore with the 1.1 patch

you also failed to report to the server for how many players it is

also note don't use the same client login for your server, make a new one (in case you haven't allready)

try using this edit the stuff towhatever is your need

servername is stated in the UTgame.ini

[Engine.GameReplicationInfo]
ServerName=
ShortName=UT3 Server
MessageOfTheDay=Welcome to a UT3 Server!

Losing the Battle

Well I am about to give up. This is very strange. I have used 3 different WinXP boxes and duplicated the problem on each of them, one was behind my router the other 2 were not. I DMZ'd the first one as well as opened all of the proper ports and still no go. When I start the server it shows as being running in processes but it does NOT bind to any address (according to netstat -n and TCPView) either local or public despite having multihome telling it which address to bind to. I even redownloaded the Server and reinstalled. Same results on all boxes, no bind to an address even though the server shows that is is running. I have a few linux boxes that I have the Linux server for and I will try that later. Oh I did shut off the firewall briefly, no difference.

Hi,

I have the same problem (server not showing in list/can connect via open)
I did that netstat -n -a
and get only response from ports 7777 and 13000 UDP
successfully bound to the servers IP
6500 or anything near is not showing up at all

any idea what this should tell me?

I finally found the problem with my server not showing up. There are many places that say that you have to have a unique login for the gamespy login. I did have a unique login but I went to gamespys website to create it and that solved some of the issues that I was having. The server still did not show up in the master server list. I finally came across a post at epic that said that you "Must" create this unique login from inside your UT3 game client and then you can use it for the server. This is the only thing that I did differently and now my server shows up on the master list. The name of the server is what I chose for the login btw, it does not matter what I have in the server name or description. I hope that my pain in finding this out helps someone else. Personally I would not have thought it would make a difference where you created the login but it certainly did.

I'm glad you figured it out. As far as the discription problem goes, make sure you're server is patched to version 1.1. There was a problem with the server description in the initial release.

This is a wicked old thread, but someone else may come across it from a search or backtrack.

I've found that most of my own problems stemmed from not have the correct ports open on the firewall. I set everything up properly and it still wouldn't connect. If you run the web-based remote management, you must open no less than 12 ports to a UT3 dedicated server. Only the web mgt is configurable.
