server not showing online?

Postby xal3xhx » Mon Feb 12, 2018 8:37 pm

well, ive been at this for 2 days now and have tried everything i can think of. everything appears to be starting correctly but i can not connect to it on LAN or by the ip. i have tried ports that i know work for some other games. i know for a fact the port is open. i used the pufferpanel built in server installer, tired doing it manually. i even switched to windows and tired the factorio server manager and still have no luck.

my server config is.
Code: Select all
{
  "name": "ServerName",
  "description": "Server",
  "tags": ["game", "tags"],

  "_comment_max_players": "Maximum number of players allowed, admins can join even a full server. 0 means unlimited.",
  "max_players": 8,

  "_comment_visibility": ["public: Game will be published on the official Factorio matching server",
                          "lan: Game will be broadcast on LAN"],
  "visibility":
  {
   "Hidden": false,
    "public": true,
    "lan": true
  },

  "_comment_credentials": "Your factorio.com login credentials. Required for games with visibility public",
  "username": "xal3xhx",
  "password": "",

  "_comment_token": "Authentication token. May be used instead of 'password' above.",

  "game_password": "XXXXXXXX",

  "_comment_require_user_verification": "When set to true, the server will only allow clients that have a valid Factorio.com account",
  "require_user_verification": false,

  "_comment_max_upload_in_kilobytes_per_second" : "optional, default value is 0. 0 means unlimited.",
  "max_upload_in_kilobytes_per_second": 0,

  "_comment_minimum_latency_in_ticks": "optional one tick is 16ms in default speed, default value is 0. 0 means no minimum.",
  "minimum_latency_in_ticks": 0,

  "_comment_ignore_player_limit_for_returning_players": "Players that played on this map already can join even when the max player limit was reached.",
  "ignore_player_limit_for_returning_players": false,

  "_comment_allow_commands": "possible values are, true, false and admins-only",
  "allow_commands": "admins-only",

  "_comment_autosave_interval": "Autosave interval in minutes",
  "autosave_interval": 10,

  "_comment_autosave_slots": "server autosave slots, it is cycled through when the server autosaves.",
  "autosave_slots": 5,

  "_comment_afk_autokick_interval": "How many minutes until someone is kicked when doing nothing, 0 for never.",
  "afk_autokick_interval": 0,

  "_comment_auto_pause": "Whether should the server be paused when no players are present.",
  "auto_pause": true,

  "only_admins_can_pause_the_game": true,

  "_comment_autosave_only_on_server": "Whether autosaves should be saved only on server or also on all connected clients. Default is true.",
  "autosave_only_on_server": true,
 
  "_comment_non_blocking_saving": "Highly experimental feature, enable only at your own risk of losing your saves. On UNIX systems, server will fork itself to create an autosave. Autosaving on connected Windows clients will be disabled regardless of autosave_only_on_server option.",
  "non_blocking_saving": false,

  "_comment_admins": "List of case insensitive usernames, that will be promoted immediately",
  "admins": []
}


im using this command to start the server on headless

i assume you are running the headless server on the same machine you are playing on.

change your client that you are using to connect to the server to something other than 34197.
like 34198.

both computers are on the same network, wired. i have tried to connect directly to the server through the local ip of the server pc and my WAN address (port forwarded) and still have nothing.

running
Code: Select all
netstat -a | grep 34197
while the server is running gives me this output
Code: Select all
udp        0      0 *:34197                 *:*
udp6       0      0 [::]:34197              [::]:*


it appears that the sever is not listening for connections?
not sure if this is a normal thing for a factorio server tho.
