Seriously, it's not that hard if you read.

Anyhow, this guide should work for MOST people who run the patch, login, and ship server all on the same computer.

Step 1: Make sure you are using a static IP address (whether internal or external) on the computer that will be the server.

Do not use DHCP.

Step 2: Figure out your external IP address on the computer that will be the server.

This is easy enough to do, just visit http://www.whatismyip.com from the computer that will be the server.

Step 3: Set the server IP address in tethealla.ini to your internal IP address. (If your computer is directly connected to the Internet, use your external IP...)

If you are using a router and, by association, using an internal IP address, do NOT use 127.0.0.1 as the server IP address. Use the 192.168.x.x address your router gave you.

Step 4: If you are using a router and, by association, an internal IP address, set your override IP in tethealla.ini to your external IP address retrieved from http://www.whatismyip.com

At this point, for example, if your internal IP address is 192.168.1.100 and your external IP address is 55.32.76.192 your server IP address should be set to 192.168.1.100 and your override IP address should be set to 55.32.76.192

Step 5: Set your IP address in ship.ini to your external IP address.

In the example above, this would be 55.32.76.192

Step 6: Set the IP address of login server to register to in ship.ini to your internal IP address.

In the example above, this would be 192.168.1.100

Step 7: If behind a router, forward ports 5278 through 5289, 11000, 11001, 12000, and 12001 to your internal IP address.

Step 8: Disable or add exceptions to whatever firewall software your using on your server computer so that traffic will pass through unfiltered. (This includes Windows Firewall in Windows XP and higher...)

Step 9: Hex edit both vista_localhost.exe and psobb_localhost.exe to use your external IP address (scan for 127.0.0.1 and replace it with your external IP address) then save them as vista.exe and psobb.exe, respectively, then distribute the new vista.exe and psobb.exe it to your connecting clients.

BE SURE TO NULL TERMINATE THE NEW STRINGS FOR YOUR IP ADDRESS. (This is simply adding ascii character #0 to the end of your string...)

Find the executables here: http://www.pioneer2.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=189&start=0&postdays=0&postorder=asc&highlight=

See this topic for more information: http://www.pioneer2.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=175

You CAN actually use a noip or dynamic DNS instead of using an IP address in the executables. HOWEVER, should your external IP address ever change, you will have to update your tethealla.ini and ship.ini then restart your server.

Step 10: Launch your patch server, login server, and ship server

ENJOY!!!

If you are having the problem where internet people can connect to your server but you can't from within your own network, then your router is a piece of shit and you should upgrade.

... Hope I didn't skip any steps.

To all the tards who can do the things correctly.


JUST READ ALL THE INSTRUCTION CAREFULLY ,

if you dont have a clue what is a static IP , google it.

If you cant Hex edit the EXE, use the search in the forum, many TARDS have open hundreds of topics with this information, and it have been solved more then hundred times.

THE INSTRUCTIONS ARE DAM CLEAR !!!!!

this post is for the new guy , that are creating topic like HELP HELP here etc etc.

READ .. SEARCH. !!!!!

as much as everyone hates hamachi oh so badly, i seriously recommend it as , u can talk to your players directly, know how many are active , and u never have any ip problems. down fall yes u need hamachi and need to create rooms. but if your having ip problems, it;s good since u never have to change ur ip and resend hex'd exe or w/e needs to be change.

Greatly do not recommend. =P But it's good you were able to figure out a more complicated way to get your server working, since you had so much difficulty with the normal way.

Usually when your IP is dynamic, you should call your internet provider company and ask to get off the static IP. I call the company was something fast and simple. On the other hand, do not know if there is a method by which you do not have to call.

Thank you AlxJox, I'll try something here.
