  1. Help Port Forwarding - Should be Simple...

    Issue was solved by changing outbound rule to allow insecure connections.
  2. Help Port Forwarding - Should be Simple...

    Yeah, I tried disabling the Windows Defender Firewall but to no avail.
  3. Help Port Forwarding - Should be Simple...

    Yes, I've tried even with the windows firewall completely disabled. What do you mean when you say disconnect the PC from the network?
  4. Help Port Forwarding - Should be Simple...

    I am able to connect to the server using the host machine, and it is fully functional. Another person recommend another tool through which we determined that the port is filtered on my end, which means that it's being blocked by some type of firewall. Which firewall it is has yet to be determined.
  5. Help Port Forwarding - Should be Simple...

    Update: Interestingly enough, someone else recommended a special tool to me and it was able to find my server. So if it's not showing up in-game on the server list, does that mean that the Steam servers (or however it works lol) aren't recognizing my server? I've got this issue posted up in a couple of places because it's been taking me so long to figure out (days), and one guy recommended that I leave it up for an hour or so. Would that possibly allow steam's servers to recognize my server?
  6. Help Port Forwarding - Should be Simple...

    Yes, I've got the server up and running whenever I'm testing if the port is open. I'm checking both on another client on the internet through the game and using one of those port checker websites.
  7. Help Port Forwarding - Should be Simple...

    Rebooted but still doesn't work
  8. Help Port Forwarding - Should be Simple...

    Yes, I am sure that "" is the IP of the host machine. The firewall on the host machine is open to that port as well for both TCP & UDP protocols. I have tried allowing only that specific IP through the firewall, and tried allowing any IP through, neither of which have worked. The current set of rules would allow either. Yes, I am sure that the server is configured to use that port. I can connect through the host machine, but not through any other machine through the internet. net.connect was not found as a command, so I did "client.connect" but got an error saying "Disconnected (Connection Attempt Failed) - returning to main menu" (the traditional error). How would that determine the issue?
  9. Help Port Forwarding - Should be Simple...

    I've tried both with and without the WAN IP but to no avail. However, I have not tried the holy grail of tech support that is restarting the device having difficulties. Will send an update lol...
  10. Help Port Forwarding - Should be Simple...

    Checked that the host's IP hasn't changed: it hasn't and is also set to be static.
  11. I'm trying to host a server for a game called Rust just for my friends and I to play on. I've done it before successfully, but this time it's not working. The machine that is the host is running Windows 10 and is plugged directly into the router. The port forwarding rule that I'm using is set up as follows: WAN Interface: ADSL_DEFAULT (not sure which WAN interface I should be using) WAN IP: (set as public IP address) Start Port: 28015 End Port: 28015 Translation Start Port: 28015 Translation End Port: 28015 Server IP Address: (host machine's local IPv4 address) Protocol: TCP/UDP Upon finding that this rule didn't seem to be working, I added both inbound and outbound rules in the Windows Firewall for the same port (28015) and the same IPv4 address. Still didn't work. Open Port Check Tool also reports the port as being closed on my public IP address. I've determined that the issue isn't with the way the server is configured, but with how my network settings are configured. Can anyone shed some light on this issue? The server doesn't appear in the game's server list at all, which leads me to believe that it might be some kind of outbound traffic issue...? Any help would be greatly appreciated .

    I would replace the thermal pads with new ones when you put the new cooler on (if you decide to go that far), or when you replace the fans. It's likely an issue with the way the fans are pulling the air because of some weird alignment issue, or they just weren't designed well.
  13. Kind of lost control of my mouse, Help!

    Is it an optical or laser sensor in the mouse? It sounds like the sensor could just be bad.
  14. Kind of lost control of my mouse, Help!

    Is it just drifting off in one direction, or does it move to certain points on the screen?
