Hello, so my question is about hosting and port forwarding. So basically as of right now i have no chance to open ports, so i tried out this alternative way to host a server. Thing called “Ngrok” is basically a multiplatform tunnelling, reverse proxy software that establishes secure tunnels from a public endpoint such as internet to a locally running network service while capturing all traffic for detailed inspection and replay. What it does is exposing your localhost to web. Its like alternative to port forwarding. But as i tried this, it didnt work, however my localhost was public. Tried to direct connect but FiveM didn’t find the server. So i thought i should investigate this, and tried exactly the same thing with another game and it worked! Does anyone know how can i get it to work or any other alternative ways like this?

Also if this is not a thing, is it possible for developers to support Ngrok?

If you can’t port forward I would recommend getting a cheap VPS or just get hosting from the official hosting partner. You can get these pretty cheap.

If you can’t to those then Hamachi may work but I do not recommend it at all and I don’t think it has been tested.

I cant afford the host right now, thats why im asking. Pretty sure Hamachi will work but its not that good, ive used Hamachi and its just bad. I know that Ngrok should work too, i think its almost same as Hamachi but for some reason Ngrok is not working.

I would try another program then, you may be able to find some on google. If it does not work you may need to wait tell you can port forward.
