Been lurking for a while now, finally created an account because i need someone’s help for a few moments.
Is there a way to test my rust server connection from outside my network?
I’m just getting back into gaming myself and don’t have any friends that play Rust.
I got my wife into Rust by hosting my own server so i could give her time to learn the game.
Now ive set up another server but made it public.
I know server advertising is not allowed and this kind of post would be viewed as such if i posted links or what not, so i will not post details on how to find my server.
I am curious if there is a mechanism to test a server from outside the network?
Or, would someone be willing to connect to my server and let me know how its responding?
I’m hosting a large map on an unraid box sitting behind a hardware firewall on a fiber connection.
I just simply want to know that people can connect and that its not lagging or otherwise unusable for people outside my own network. I know 1 person isn’t a great test, but as long as i know people can get to it, i’ll advertise it where appropriate and assign more resources on the server hardware if needed.
If anyone would take a few moments to give me some feedback, it would be appreciated.
I will admit that once i know its working i will post advertisements where its appropriate such as server listing sites, but again, i have no intention of trying to advertise it here.
I just want to know that its working before i do actually advertise it.
Can anyone give me advice on how to accomplish this?
