Hello all this is my first post here! Anyway I have set up a server on my computer. I unzipped the JA+ mod into my Gamedata folder. Modfied what i wanted e.g. server.cfg and then installed the Dedicated server pack then ran the .BAT start_server_with_dedicated_pack. I can join fine by adding the IP to my favoutrites. Finding it in the Local list or by using the /connect command in the console. But when someone else tried to join using this IP and port: 192.168.0.185:29070 they couldn't join. I am on a shared internet connection using a crossover cable. Thanks in advance!
IP addresses in the 192.168.0.0 series are for internal use in LANs only. It isn't the IP address that the outside world sees. To get your real IP address, go to www.whatismyip.com
Hmmm one would think that everyone knows how to get their real ip address using DOS... I guess I was wrong.
Ahhh so the only reason I've been anle to log onto my server is cos Im hostingit! LOL whoops! So my IP which is currently 184.108.40.206
will change each day but other people will be able to log on to it. THANKS A MILLION!!!!
Umm OK I tried logging on using this IP 220.127.116.11
and I couldn't join!!!

I'm no expert but I think it should be 18.104.22.168:29070 Unless you have changed the port.
Its all ok now It works thanks to all
