Direct IP Connection[edit | edit source]

As it stands, the default port of a game is currently 30000 [30k] however, you may choose another port if you prefer however, the most important part of this next step is to [and I cannot stress this enough] READ YOUR ROUTERS MANUAL on how to open up and set port forwarding to allow other people to connect to your game.

It is impossible to create a guide covering every router there is as there are hundreds, if not thousands of different routers on the market. Hence YOU MUST READ YOUR OWN MANUALS.

You can check here for a guide for almost all routers, HOWEVER it should be noted that you will need to at least know how to access your router's settings first:

WARNING: You may have to disable your firewall software, or turn off the windows firewall. This will only be a temporary problem as we are working on a more suitable system.

As other people with different routers setup their game, we hope to be able to share more example settings with you, please check back regularly.
