Server not visible for alot of players

« posted: Jun 15, 2016, 11:40 PM »
Hello everyone!

I have just moved our mission to a new fresh arma3 server install and a new dedi. Added new tanoa content on the sneak_preview branch, opened ports and started it up.

Now some players are saying they cannot see the server, and some can't even use the direct connect function. I have tried disabling the firewall (for a short period of time), opening more ports, restarting the server, looking in the logs for clues, I cannot see them.

Pulling my hair out atm since I know lots of people want to play but cannot see the damn thing.

Can you guys please look at my log/cfg/mission to see if i'm missing something?


Here is my mission at the moment : https://github.com/topster21/ArmA3_Wasteland.Tanoa/tree/apex_live
Here is my most recent rpt file: http://pastebin.com/BYEtuB83
Here is my server.cfg and basic.cfg: http://pastebin.com/dnUfDY43  http://pastebin.com/N7ThiFXv

Startup script : http://pastebin.com/uPb22p3S

Also: when I connect my headless client, it seems it does nothing. It gets kicked out by battlEye for lobby idling...
Oh and textures are missing from some vehicles, so they look really weird. Will find screenshot later.

Thank you!

If your server is not visible to some people, it means that the client is in a different build of the server. Even via direct connect it will not appears. if your server is using apex_sneake_preview the client should be using exactly the same, another beta build will not work

Ok I have found the problem...

If you are hosting a game server over at OVH, you might find this interesting.

Appearantly they have a FIREWALL on their gameboxes, and they don't tell you about them except on the page where you manage your ip-addresses (where I never look).

So for anyone reading this in the future who might have the same problem:

Go into the settings for your IP-address
Click the cog on the IP-adress
Select Configure the game firewall
Then either allow the ports or disable the thing entirely.

See attachments if you cannot find these settings.
