Port Forwarding for game server not working.

Hello,

the port forwarding that i've done to set up a server in my game doesnt seem to be working. I've been in touch with the devs of the game and very helpfully they walked me through their side of the set up, essentially forward 11774 udp, 11775 and 11777 TCP, add rules to firewall to allow these ports if that doesnt work, etc.

We are pretty adamant that the problem lies within the router.

Been checking server up info using http://localhost:11775/, for local obviously this was working as the server is in my computer anyway. Then using http://your_local_ip:11775/, this works on the computer again but doesnt work on any other devices on the network. And finally http://your_public_ip:11775/ this doesnt work at all.

I reckon this means that the the server is working but not transmitting beyond the router. Obviously i could be wrong as i have no experience in this other than what i've been doing the past 3 days. Could anyone advise on what to do or what to check/change? Any help would be eternally grateful. 

Thank you for your time.

That won't work unless you are doing it from outside of your network as the Home Hub doesn't support NAT loopback.


Try turning off UPnP if you haven't already done so, it can interfere when ports are manually forwarded.

The BT Home Hubs don't support loopback so your public IP address won't work when you are on the internal network - you can test by using a mobile connection instead.

Also did that at the devs request. Both to the game and the router, is there another i can disable somewhere? Sorry i should have included this but my knowledge in this is limited so it was an oversight.
