Hello,

I have recently started my journey with the servers and set up a few local servers. Now i have followed below tutorial and set up a local server and when I choose Lan Connection in ET it works perfectly fine (up to the point where tutorial ends). But i cant connect from another computer. I have set allowances and exceptions in my firewall and i have an external IP.

What am I doing wrong, pls help me??

You must setup a webhost (ftp) and upload the files there and set the website url in the cfg e.g www.server.com/etmain/ and www.server.com/silent/ ;D

A step in the right direction

http://mygamingtalk....t_Server_Config

set sv_wwwBaseURL ""            // This is the URL where players are directed while running the game

You can use the free one available at:

http://redirect.dediserverhosting.com/

They have most of the files on there redirect.

set sv_wwwDownload 1
set sv_wwwDlDisconnected 1
set sv_wwwBaseURL "http://redirect.dediserverhosting.com/"            // This is the URL where players are directed while running the game
set sv_wwwFallbackURL "http://mygamingtalk.com/"      // This is the URL where players are directed to download using external internet browser

Try that in your config and it should work.

Hello,

Thanks Acis and hellreturn for above, these worked very well. My server is up and running now fine.

But i need to resolve one more thing, which is my IP. My internet provider seems to assign me different EXTERNAL ip every time i connect, so everything works fine until I reset my computer. Do you know if there is a way around it, for example noip.com, will it work? Or any free trial dedicated server out there? Is it generally safe for a user to run a server on your computer with firewall and exceptions for etded or port 27960?

Well I normally don't keep my machine on 24 * 7.  It uses more power then what is worth it.

I wouldn't advice to run public server from your local PC. Well yeah you could but you need good network peering + connection. Question is are you using this server for your learning and testing purpose or for your clan. If later is the case then rent the server from professional hosting services.

If your router supports you can use dynamic DNS. So whenever your IP changes it gets updated by itself.

Is there a way to see a list of all available files?

All stock files + 100+ maps. If you need for your servers let me know and I will add those missing files.

Hello,

Thanks for that. I had some problems but now resolved the issues with FTP and IP. So server is running fine now. I was also trying to make it public with below commands but it doesn't work. DO i need some kind of a permission to do that?

set sv_master1 "etmaster.idsoftware.com"
set sv_master2 "master0.etmaster.net

Right now I am focusing on adding more maps to and  deleting others from my vote cycle, but can't find any topic on this issue. Is there any cfg where i could simply edit it?

I'll be also looking for adding personalised voice chats, let's see how it goes.

If you are using silent mod then use map voting feature. No more bother with map rotation configs.

I never change sv_master1 or so on... Just leave that to default.

Hello,

Thanks for advice. I created an ftp which is working properly and made a modification to my silent.cfg but when I open the game and one of the uploaded maps is played, then it shows me a flash of a download for a second and then redirects to mygamingtalk even though i have it bahind slashes. I don't know what is wrong, maybe you could help me.

silent cfg which is executed in etmain directory:

set sv_maxRate 50000
set sv_dl_maxRate 50000
//
// Uncomment below once you have the www downloads set

set sv_wwwDlDisconnected 1
set sv_wwwBaseURL "http://periax.bplaced.net/"            // This is the URL where players are directed while running the game
// set sv_wwwFallbackURL "http://mygamingtalk.com/"      // This is the URL where players are directed to download using external internet browser

set sv_pure 1
set sv_minping 0
set sv_maxping 0
Index of /etmain

As you can see ftp is ok, i don't know what is going wrong.

Another thing to make home server public is to ensure you have port forwarding configured in your router pointing to the computer that is hosting the server.

Just FYI Noticed your redirect has silent mod folder inside etmain, it needs to be outside etmain.

http://periax.bplace.../etmain/silent/
should be move to:
http://periax.bplaced.net/silent/
