Can't join server on local network
« on: November 26, 2016, 03:33:07 am »
I wanted to play Just Cause 2 MP with a friend at my house but can't seem to get it to work.

I've been looking for answers everywhere but nothing has worked yet. Here's what I've tried:
 • Turning off the anti-virus firewall on the hosting machine
 • Port-forwarding
 • Modifying the config file
 • Connecting with the computer's IP address instead of the local address

The host machine can connect to the server but no other computer can.
Is there anything else I could try?

Which local IP address are you using to join?

Clearly. Where are you getting it from?

Okay... are you running ipconfig on the machine that is running the server, and using that result to connect?

Yep

Edit: To clarify, I've hosted plenty of servers on this computer and have used it for LAN and have never had any issues. It seems to be a Just Cause 2 Multiplayer thing.

I can't think of anything to recommend... I've a pretty same situation (connecting from 2nd account on laptop to server hosted on desktop), all works for me.
Maybe there's something on the router that's the culprit?

Yeah I guess I might have to reset the router  :-\

I'm just confused because I just played NEOTOKYO last night on a LAN server hosted by that same computer and everything was fine.
