    [n00b Tips] How to make your server public without hamachi

    Alright so I've seen a lot of guides on getting your server public. There's one stickied one but thats Mangos , nobody really uses Mangos anymore. If there not for Mangos, then it how to make your server public with Hamachi. [ Which SUCKS]

    This guide is assuming that you changed your config files so that they could enter mysql and you databases.

    Lets get started:

    Create an account a dyndns.com. Once that's done , log in .

    1. Click on the yellow " Services" Tab around the top. Click on the planet that has
    " Dynamic DNS "under it. Click on " Get Started" on the right.

    2. Choose a hostname. mine is mafiaboyserver.game-server.cc , it doesn't matter what you put. Check the " Enable Wildcard " box . Dont touch TTL and Service type.
    For your ip adress click the link under the box where your supposed to type it your ip. It will put it in automatically for you. Leave the rest as it is. Click on create host.

    3. Configuring your Hosts file.

    go to C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc and open the file called hosts(hosts.file)
    with notepad. Make it look like this inside. ( Change the red&green to your own info)

    # 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

    127.0.0.1 localhost

    127.0.0.1 the.dydns.host.you.created.in.step.2
    internal.ip the.dydns.host.you.created.in.step.2
    external.ip the.dydns.host.you.created.in.step.2

    external ip = go to whatismyip.com to find out
    internal = go to start, run, type cmd in the little box that comes up. In the black box that pops up, type ipconfig. where it says :

    ip adress......... 192.***.**.** thats your internal ip. The *** I put would be numbers.

    Go into your repack folder and find logonserver.conf. I highlighted in red where you should make sure it's the same.

    Now that your configs are good to go. You need to turn off the firewall. Trust me this is easier than forwarding ports.

    In the adress bar type 192.168.0.1, put admin as your username , there's no password. Take off your firewall. Or for a D-link Router click on the blue
    "advanced " tab, then click on "DMZ" on the left . Put the 3 last digits of your internal ip and check off "Enabled" . Then click apply.


    AND YOUR GOOD TO GO!

    Set your realmlist to your dyndns adress you created on step 2, same goes for anyone that wants to connect to your server.

    Post your questions and I will try to help you. Although this seems pretty noob proof.

    F.A.Q

    1. Ascent/Antrix starts up properly until ascent/antrix.exe gets to end and i get this ......Result: Failure

    Read the yellow part, in your antrix/ascent.conf go to the bottom and make sure the password you put is EXACTLY the same as the one you put in logonserver.conf

    2. I can connect properly but my friends can't, Y is this?

    In your realms.conf make sure the adress at the bottom is set to your external ip. Also make sure you turned of the firewall of your router.

    3. Everything was fine for 2 days and now were all stuck a Connecting. What's going on?

    Some routers change your external ip when you restart your computer. Go to dyndns.com and put in your new external ip and update your host. Then put your new external ip in realms.conf( the bottom)

    4.I get stuck at Logging into Game Server..Y?

    Update you Ascent Rev to 2.0 Stable. It's posted on this forum somewhere

    Thanks, great guide +Rep. The password for 192.168.0.1 differs for different routers, if anyone needs to know theirs; google "192.168.0.1 password" and click on the first link. (Not privileged enough to link it myself )
