Server to multiplayer


#1

Hello!

I have created a server and I can connect to it. But when I send th IP to my friends they cant connect? What IP is im gonna use? How do I make so they dont need IP, just name? Thanks for answers! :smiley:


#2

You can set the server name through the server.cfg, like so sv_hostname "namehere".


#3

So if I do so you gonna see the server in the server-list? But how does he connect?


#4

Yes, if you’ve opened the ports correctly then it should pop up on the server list and he will be able to double click on it and connect.


#5

So you must log in to the router and open the ports?


#6

Yes. (20 charrrrrrrrrr)


#7

So to get alla clear.

You do sv_hostname “namehere”. this with the server name and

if you have logged in on the router and opend the ports “port-forwarding” he can see it to and connect?
