For sum reason even though on my router i have opened the ports with a static port and with the new fangled port forwarding no one can connect externally.... any one had this issue before??
Hi Lee,Been a while 'Drew, hope you're keeping well.
Do the players trying to connect show any signs of a connection attempt in the shard console?
If not, then your shard is likely listening on the wrong IP.
For example, if your computer's internal IP is 192.168.0.5 and you forward to x.x.x.5 on port 2593, then your shard listener should be listening to x.x.x.5 too - double check to make sure.
You will also need to add an inbound exception for your shard (by exe or port) to your Windows Firewall.
