View Full Version : U2XMP server problems

11th April, 2004, 10:47 PM

I'm new to server stuff, so please bare with me.

I've been looking to setup an XMP server. I installed the dedicated server pack, created the U2xmp.ini, the batch file, and then ran the batch.

This seems to work correctly. All good. I have a "MasterServerUpLink: connection to master.u2xmp.com established" message at the end, so I assume all this has been done correctly.

Now the problem.

I can "see" the server from my usual XMP install, listed under LAN as IP I can join and everything runs fine. However, I cannot see the server listed under the "online" section. The master server is running normally, I can see all the other servers, but not mine. I've been looking every hour - for hours now. Have I missed something out? The public listing was set to TRUE on my .ini configuration, I double checked. It won't appear on ASE either.

Help would be so greatly apprectiated.

Thanks in advance

Yes I've got the exact same problem!!!

Did you figure it out?

I used the ini configurator on this site, could that be the problem?
Please could someone reply with a list of the settings for the myU2XMP.ini file that should be set to make the server public.

I suspect that your problem is not with your u2xmp configuration, but rather with a router/firewall. You will need to make sure the proper incoming game ports are forwarded to the game server computer.
I've done this many times with other unreal games, but not with U2XMP server yet. This is a common problem if you have a NAT router. If this is your case, then you need to enable port forwarding on your NAT router, and send the game ports (probably 7777-7780?) to your game server ( in the example above).

please let me know when you fix this and how cos i can't work it out either.
check you're not filtering "dead" servers out -- yours may be ping9999 ie dead as far as the browser is concerned...
