TS3 Server Issues

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Il try to make it quick and short . 

 

I accuired and older PC , that il use as a TS3 server , and so far it works . But only for the computers on my home network . 

 

Says in the tutorial to open port 9987 for TS3 , which i did on both of my routers , and in the firewall of the host PC . Also , the host PC has a static IP .

 

When i go and check if the ports are open , it either says that they are not open , or a connection timeout .

 

Any ideas ? The routers are a TC7200-DMS and a TP-LINK TL-WR843ND.

probably a mistake you made in portforwarding, this stuff gets messy when you are working with double NAT.

Il try to take some screenshots to make it easier .. 

Router #1

Router #2

On the host PC , all the ports have been allowed thru the firewall ... 

 

And this is the part that confuses me : when i give the IP to someone outside my LAN , i give them the Public IP + port at the end ? for example 192.564.987.1:9987 ( not my iP just an example )

Yes, go to http://whatismyip.com and give them that IP address.

So only the xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx with the port or without it ?

They only need the port if your not using default otherwise teamspeak SHOULD be OK however I'd give them with the port anyway as it can't hurt.

 

Like this: XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX:XXXX

Are you running dual NAT or are both modems connected to a WAN?

And schould the external and internal IP be the same on router 1?

 

Edit: i ment routers not modems <.<

Well , this is how it is hooked up , i have no idea what NAT is , but il try to explain it :

 

TC-7200 ( main router ) provides internet for the laptop and TV via wi-fi and is hooked up to the TV receiver via cable . Then a cable runs from it , all the way to my room into the TP-LINK unit , on which i have the host PC and my gaming PC hooked up via cable and it also provides wifi to a smartphone and a tv . 

 

So i suppose ( at least from wiking what NAT is ) that i have to deal with that ?

You might be running dual NAT if you haven't configured it otherwise. If so you'll have to find the IP for router 2 and set portforwarding from router #1 to the IP of router #2. Then forward from Router #2 to the IP of the server.

So if i got it right , IP of Router #2 into the port forwarding IP of Router #1 , and then use the server IP as target for Router #2 port forwarding ?

Tried it , still doesnt work . 

Tho , an observation i did make : I tried connecting with the laptop via wifi  If i try over the #1 Router , it doesnt work . BUT if i connect to the #2 Router , it recognizes the IP and it works . 

 

I suppose i just cant open the needed ports on Router #1 for whatever reason ?

To clarify.

You can connect to the server on the IP 192.168.1.100 from router #2 but not from router #1?

Try using the IP of the router to connect to the TS3 server.

 

If that works Router #2 is fine, and you probably have to change router #1 port forwarding.

 

Although i recomend not using dual NAT, or plugging the server to router #1.

Yes exactly that . When i connect to the #2 router with the laptop it works . 

 

Sadly there is no way to connect the server directly to the #1 router ,as the cables run in walls .

 

I guess il need to experiment with the port forwarding settings on router #1

Only thing i can think of now is that the external IP has to be the IP that you get from your ISP and internal is the IP of router #2 (external = outside NAT, internal = inside NAT)

By ISP ip you mean the public IP or ?

I know the router has the standard 192.168.xxx.xxx.. other than that i dont know alot
