people cannot join my server

Hi guys,

trying to get a server up for this great game, but no one can join it ! :|

It might be my incorrectly configured firewall, what ports do you need open? incoming/outgoing and tcp/udp



cheers guys

7777 UDP/IP Game Port
7778 UDP/IP Query Port
7787 UDP/IP GameSpy uplink
28902 TCP/IP Master Server uplink

I have found these, but what I would like to know is, are incoming or outgoing ports or both?

Those are incoming ports.

On my linux router, everything from inside my lan has access to the outside world. So I don't need to open ports for outgoing requests. If this isn't the case for you, you should open both outgoing and incoming ports.

If that doesn't work, there's also an option in AlienSwarm.ini called bBehindNAT. Try setting that to True.
