I’ve been trying to set up my server on my own computer for about a week now and it seems that no matter which solutions I attempt to use, none of them seem to be working. Only I am able to see my server on the server browser and only I can join it. Anyone else that attempts to join either cannot see it on the list or receives a “failed handshake” message when attempting Direct Connect. I’ve already tried:
• Adding inbound and outbound rules to the Firewall, for both TCP and UDP.
• Disabling my anti-virus completely.
• Opening port 30120 on my router.
• Setting up a DMZ to see if it made a difference.
All of which did nothing and made it impossible for others to see or join my server.
As a last resort, I’ve also spent money on a VPS and tried to set it up that way, which is now preferred as I’d rather the server be up all the time without it having it to be run on my computer. However, I’m now facing the same issue as before. Only this time, since my VPS has a different IP than my computer, I can now no longer connect to my server at all.
Any help from those who know about server visibility issues or setting up a FiveM on a VPS would be greatly appreciated.
Many thanks in advance,
