Hi !

I'm trying to set up a dedicated server for openarena.
I launch the server with parameter +set net_ip localip and can use it on my local network. But I can't connect to it from internet, even thought I redirected port 27960 UDP to this localip. I've tried to use +set net_ip myinternetip, but openarena refuses to launch.
What am I missing ? What is the parameter to specify the internet ip of the server ? I've already setup a FTP server and I had to use an IP Masquerading option. Where is this option in openarena ?

Thanks for helping me

Don't use set net_ip unless your computer has multiple network interfaces. You CAN'T set net_ip to any IP which isn't set on one of computer's network interfaces. Also don't try to connect to your server using your WAN address from INSIDE your LAN. Most routers don't allow that. Have somebody connect from outside instead. If it doesn't work anyway, your port forwarding is not set correctly.
