Online works for some but not everyone

I started working on a game called Project Austin 2d World. I was working on it on my main computer then my brother wanted to test my progress so he was able to join but when i got a new laptop to work on my game when i am not home My laptop could not connect i make it go through my firewall and my Norton Firewall and still nothing works. Any know how to solve this?

If you and your brother played from the same router, than you basicly played via lan. That’s when your computers both connect to each other via your router but never use the internet.

In order to let people from the internet connect, you will need to port forward your router or use hamachi.

(note that hamachi requires both you and the players to have hamachi installed aswell)

It is hosting on a Virtual Computer and its port forwarded.

Disable the firewall its blocking incoming connections to your computer.

Do you have a firewall on the vps?

The firewall is disabled. I am sure i don’t have a virus scanner like Norton though so i know its not Firewall.

Make sure that the client is connecting to the correct port and IP.

It’s the right Port and ip. Could it be the computer i am using to connect i am confused why its not connecting to the server. I will do research more to see if i can get it.

Does your laptop have an internet connection when you are trying to go on your game server? Does this also happen when you are on your home connection?

Try also allowing the game to bypass firewalls on your laptop’s side.

It is already bypass in my firewall. Let me recheck everything and see.
