Hey guys, I am just playing around with the idea of hosting my own server, and I am just having a little trouble connecting.
I am hosting the server on a secondary machine, and want to play with friends, and play off my main system.
I dont have a problem with it not showing up on the list, for now it will just be private.
I have downloaded steamcmd and installed the app, and have all the files. I made a batch file with basic command lines for the server (rustdedicated.exe), and it launches and runs fine. Shows my fps at 61, low ping, etc.
Now when I go to connect to it off my main system, I was using client.connect 24.xx.xx.xx:28015 (my IP off of the machine that is hosting)
It will just sit there showing “connecting” and then give me an error message of no response from host after a few moments. I am sure I am missing something obvious here. If anyone is willing to help me out through steam chat that would be great too.
I have only hosted servers on a few different games but never a steam game, and it was always using idiot-proof game UI. This is somewhat new to me.
