    [GUIDE]Making Your Server public! [Hamachi/nonhamachi, with or without router)

    Way of the Hamchi!

    Step 1



    DOWNLOAD Hamachi

    Step 2



    Configure Hamachi!

    Start up Hamachi and power it on by clicking the highlighted green button in the bottom left hand corner as shown below:


    Now, click the button with the three dots that make a triangle like shape.

    Choose Create a new network. Name your connection name anything you would like and give it a password. Now, look at the top of Hamachi were you will see some white numbers that start with 5. something. Now, write down that number. Its your Hamachi IP address.


    Step 3



    Open Ascent Folder

    Open up the file ascent.conf. Look for this part:

    Code:
       
      #-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#
    # Listen Config
    #
    #    Host
    #        This is the address that the server will listen on.
    #        To listen on all addresses, set it to 0.0.0.0
    #        Default: 127.0.0.1 (localhost)
    #
    #    WorldServerPort
    #        This is the port that the world server listens on.
    #        It has to be the same as what is specified in the
    #        realms table in the LogonDatabase.
    #        Default: 8129
    #
    #-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#
    
    <Listen Host = "0.0.0.0"
            WorldServerPort = "8129">


    You will replace the Listen Host current set address with your Hamachi IP.

    Example:

    <Listen Host = "5.55.55.55"
    Now close that and go to your logonserver.conf file.

    Code:
        
    
    # Host Directive
    #
    #    This is the address that the realmlist will listen on.
    #    To listen on all addresses, set it to 0.0.0.0
    #    Default: 127.0.0.1 (localhost)
    #
    #    Note: ISHost is the interserver communication listener.
    #
    
    <Listen Host = "0.0.0.0"
            ISHost = "0.0.0.0"
            RealmListPort = "3724"
            ServerPort = "8093">


    Change the numbers of LISTENHOST and ISHOST to your HAMACHI IP.

    Now close that and open up your realms.conf file.

    Code:
       
      #-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#

    #
    #    Address:
    #        The address (no port) of the server.
    #

    #-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#
    
    <LogonServer Address = "127.0.0.1"
                 Port = "8093"
                 Name = "Default Logon"
                 RealmCount = "1">
    
    #-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#
    # Realm Section
    #
    #    Name:
    #        The name of the realm.
    #    
    #    Address:
    #        The address (and port) of that realm.
    #
    #    Icon:
    #        The type of realm (PVP, Normal, RPPVP, RP)
    #
    #    Colour:
    #        Realm colour in realm list display.
    #
    #    TimeZone:
    #        Time zone the realm is in.
    #
    #    Population:
    #        (0 = low, 1 = medium, 2 = high)
    #
    #-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#
    
    <Realm1 Name = "Server Name"
            Address = "127.0.0.1:8129"
            Icon = "PVP"
            Colour = "1"
            Population = "1.0"
            TimeZone = "1">

    Now, change the Logonserver Address to your Hamachi IP. Also, change the address part before the 8129 to your Hamachi IP.

    Example:


    Code:
        
     
    #-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#

    #
    #    Name:
    #        Not really relavant, but name the logon.
    #
    #    RealmCount:
    #        The number of realms in the next section.

                 Name = "Default Logon"
                 RealmCount = "1">

            Icon = "PVP"
            Colour = "1"
            Population = "1.0"
            TimeZone = "1">


    Now close out of that. Your done. This is the most efficient and best way to set up your server with Hamachi and works 100% of the time.

    Way of Non-Hamachi! (NON ROUTER)


    Step One



    The first thing you need to do is make a DNS for your server. This will hide your server's IP address in a sub domain, for example, if my server's IP address was32.453.65.56, I could make a DNS so that my server could be accessed through wow.frosthold.org. You can skip this step if you want but it is not recommended, if you decide to skip it, your server will be located at your IP address.

    Go to DynDNS and create an account. Then go HERE and choose a host name (this will be the address people use to get to your server) and click “Use auto detected IP address” in the IP address section, then click create host.

    Step Two



    In this step we will forward the ports that Ascent uses so that it can be accessed from outside your local network. This step is only necessary if you have a router, if you don’t have one, skip this step.

    If you do not know how to forward ports, go to THIS PAGE and find your router, it will tell you there.

    You need to forward these ports:

    8129
    8093
    3724
    3727 (this is for voice chat, it is optional)
    80 (this is for apache/your website)


    On both
    TCP and UDP.

    Step Three



    In this step we will setup our hosts file and our realms configuration which is the final step needed to make our server public.

    Go to Start --> Run and put in
    C:/windows/system32/drivers/etc/hosts (if you use a different drive to C just put that in instead) and open it with notepad. Add your IP address (you can find it HERE if you don't already know it) followed by the address you made in DynDNS earlier to the end of the file like so:

    Code:
           
    
    # Copyright (c) 1993-1999 Microsoft Corp.
    #
    # This is a sample HOSTS file used by Microsoft TCP/IP for Windows.
    #
    # This file contains the mappings of IP addresses to host names. Each
    # entry should be kept on an individual line. The IP address should
    # be placed in the first column followed by the corresponding host name.
    # The IP address and the host name should be separated by at least one
    # space.
    #
    # Additionally, comments (such as these) may be inserted on individual
    # lines or following the machine name denoted by a '#' symbol.
    #
    # For example:
    #
    #      102.54.94.97     rhino.acme.com          # source server
    #       38.25.63.10     x.acme.com              # x client host
    
    345.234.234.677         wow.frosthold.org


    Now to setup your realms configuration. Go to your Ascent folder and open realms.conf with notepad. Scroll down to the bottom, this is the important bit:
    Code:
    <Realm1 Name = "Server Name"
             Address ="345.234.234.677:8129"
            Icon = "Normal"
            Colour = "1"
            Population = "1.0"
            TimeZone = "1">

    Just put your IP in followed by :8129 like above in the address section.


    Your server is now public, make sure your server is actually running so people can get on it! Also disable any firewalls you have on otherwise it will not work. For people to access the server they need to change their realmlists to your server address which you made at DynDNS. This is also the address that they need to use in order to get on the server
    website. If you're connecting locally your realmlist should be 127.0.0.1





    Way of Non-Hamachi! (ROUTER)

    Step One



    The first thing you need to do is make a DNS for your server. This will hide your server's IP address in a sub domain, for example, if my server's IP address was 32.453.65.56, I could make a DNS so that my server could be accessed through wow.frosthold.org.

    Go to DynDNS and create an account. Then go HERE and choose a host name (this will be the address people use to get to your server) and click “Use auto detected IP address” in the IP address section, then click create host.

    Since you have a router you will need to download a program called DyNDNS from here:
    DynDNS -- Support Tools -- Update Client Configurator

    This is probably the most useful program to make your server public. Since your router makes your IP dynamic, which means it can change whenever, this client will update your DNS to match your new IP address, so you never lose connection from the server when your server IP changes.

    SO instead of constatnly manually updating the wow.frosthold.org it will do it automatically.

    Step Two



    In this step we will forward the ports that Ascent uses so that it can be accessed from outside your local network.

    Code:
    <Realm1 Name = "Server Name"
             Address ="DYNAMICDNS(wow.frosthold.org):8129"
            Icon = "Normal"
            Colour = "1"
            Population = "1.0"
            TimeZone = "1">

    Just put your DynamicDNS in followed by :8129 like above in the address section.


    Your server is now public, make sure your server is actually running so people can get on it! Also disable any firewalls you have on otherwise it will not work. For people to access the server they need to change their realmlists to your server address which you made at DynDNS (wow.frosthold.org).

    Re: How To make your Server Public [Hamachi AND Non-Hamachi]

    No...it says set 127.0.0.1 for the NON-Hamachi part. For Hamachi it says use your Hamachi IP.

    If it's Hamachi use your Hamachi IP if not use either 127.0.0.1 or your DNS host name.

    Re: How To make your Server Public [Hamachi AND Non-Hamachi]

    Ok this is my problem, ok I've tried 2 pc's a friends and mine and we end up with the same thing. He has a router and I have a direct connection (no router + no firewall crap up)


    Everything goes well untill this:


    He turns on the server I put in my User name and Pass "Hit connect" log's in fine and I'm at Suggest a Realm I click the stuff, click "ok" and sends me to "SomeRealm" which is what its always said even tho we changed it I believe. Anyways, I get the list I click "ok" and it says "Logging into server" and BAM back to list again, and it does this all the time I find the realm but cannot enter it. HE can but I cannot. We've followed this guid, another, and even another with Ascent. We thought maybe port stuff, firewall crap ROUTER crap so even I setup and server which I don't have all the router firewall crap AND STILL the same results. I've checked ALL THE config files everything seems proper I'm getting IN but NOT into the Realm + server its self.


    Any ideas PLEASE help, I've spend almost a day trying to get this going, I will gladly take MSN addy's to get help just leave it here. thanks i'm beyond mad and frustrated ATM.
