Dedicated server issue

Okay, so I’ve encountered a problem with my dedicated server. (feel free to correct me if ive posted this in wrong forum)
ive spent 5 hours setting this up now, this usually would take maybe 30 minutes max, but something is not the way it should.
I cant seem to figure out what’s causing this problem, so im bringing my issue to the public as a last effort…

I can connect to my server locally (client.connect localhost:28000) but not otherwise.
I know what you’re thinking…
"Stupid idiot forgot to forward his ports, lol… "
No thats not the problem. The ports are correctly forwarded and ive even downloaded “port forwads application” to check wether the ports are open or not, and they are open.

So…
I have no firewall
My routers firewall is turned off
My router ports are open. (I’ve opened 28000 - 28050 UDP and TCP)
I can connect locally, so server version is compatible with game version.
however i’ve ran out of solutions.

Any brainiacs out there willing to help me out?

Is your batchfile configured correctly? I don’t know if that could cause any trouble but it might.


RustDedicated.exe -batchmode +server.hostname "hostname" +server.port 28000 +server.identity "identity" +server.seed 673

My batch is fine, thats not what causing the problem.
Though I may have figured it out.
While testing, I figured out that the port closes once I launch the server.

It says the port is open but once the server is running, suddenly they close, so i’ve had a chat with my internett provider and a new router is on the way.

Hopefully that will do it :slight_smile:
