Linux dedicated server connection issue

Post by Honza_ »

Hi,
so I tried to get some dedicated server going, but there is this connections problem.

I managed to launch game, factorio seems to have port opent but I still get "Could not establish connection" message when trying to connect it.
I can connect to other servers though.

Anyone has any experience with dedicated facotrio server on linux, that could point me to problem?

Do you have the ports forwarded correctly on your router (assuming you are behind one)?
Also, AFAIK it is impossible to run a server and a client on the same machine - if that's what you're trying to do.

The server runs on a VPS server.

As I wrote, I can connect to other games and yes, I have also ports on my windows PC forwarded.

It's worth a try to double check your VPS's port using a tool like http://www.yougetsignal.com/tools/open-ports/
Then you can tell for sure if it's reachable via the internet.

I know the VPS our city rents is behind a hardware firewall of some sort, plus the OS's firewalling. To open any non-standard ports we update our firewall rules, then contact the VPS providers to adjust their firewall if it doesn't work.

Assuming that your server hostname is novapolis.net [37.157.192.64], I can connect to your server on port 34197 (default) without problems, although it is a bit laggy ingame.

Not sure why you would have problems connecting to your own server though. It seems fine server-wise, so are you using any VPN, Firewall or similar on the client to connect? If possible, try connecting using a different client pc / internet connection.

Yeah, thanks, that can be handy. I played a little more with iptables and it seems to work now, I can connect.
