Configuring Descent 3 dedicated server for a LAN game
« on: November 26, 2014, 07:49:33 AM »
Greetings,

I'm probably missing something simple here, but what is the means to configure a Descent 3 dedicated server to allow play over a TCP/IP (not IPX) LAN?

Thanks.

I've got no idea, but I seem to remember the Vortex guys have lots of knowledge in that area.

I also remember there used to be one or more online tutorials on how to do that.  Have you checked at the sites where you can download D3 missions?

I haven't found any LAN tutorials.

I posted on the dateiliste.com forum.

I know the DO clan has a LAN party every year and I intended to post there, but they never confirmed my registration, so I can't post.

If you're using the D3Server tool, it's really straightforward.  Just set up the game, make sure your firewall isn't blocking connections, and launch.  The clients/players can should be able to join it without problem.

I confirmed the host firewall was off but added exceptions for the server's port 2092. I can now see the server on the client.

Thanks.
