MP Error - Unable to determine external ip address

Post by CrankySmurf » Sun Nov 12, 2017 4:10 am

Hi Everyone,
I've searched and worked on this for the last 2 days... still dont know what the problem is.

Error:
Unable to determine external ip address

My friend cant connect to me, I cant connect to him.
We can connect to public servers.

I have opened up port 34197 (single port fwd) over UDP
Double checked local firewall

Tried using a port mapper, that didnt work.

Anyone have magic insight into what I'm doing wrong?

Jesus, that response made me feel like I'm dealing with my QA department. Figure out what I want to know!

Make a useful title... check (at least I think)
-Describe the problem as best as you can... Outside of the info provided, do you want to know how I specifically setup port forwarding?
-I added 12035 and 12037 based on the log also with no luck.

Provide Attachments... you could have said "hey we need X"

Your port is not static, this is either a router or ISP issue. See: 47110 and 48157.

Clearly my search foo isnt anywhere near as good as I thought.
The only info I could find on port randomization is for Pfsense. Any idea what Linksys refers to it as? All I keep getting back is port forwarding info.
