Setting up LAN on Reaper-x MaNGOS (making it public) help

Posted by Flambé on 16 February, 2008

Some people are having problems setting up LAN on their server so if you get a problem please feel free to comment below and me or someone else will help you. Reaper-x, how to set up LAN.

Steve

Also, just a warning for hamachi users:

leak said:

hamachi is like letting someone thru your router, and having them sit right next to you with their own computer with an ethernet cord into your home network.

I am making a wow server, and I would highly suggest against using hamachi if you let strangers in. It won´t be long until you get hacked. You can get hacked even not using hamachi but it´s about 10x safer to not use it (especially if you just install hamachi and then run the wow server without limiting hamachi i.e default hamachi settings). It´s not much harder to set up a dynamic dns with wildcard. Just pay for dyndns´s wildcard. If it´s more than 6 bucks a year then shop around. Don´t feel bad about talking to tech support and explaining that you want to run a wow server if you bought a dns host. If you really are worried, just lie and tell them on the phone that it´s just for you or your household.

    i can get people connected and they can make characers that i can see on my cmd prompt but the characters arent on their characterlist

    i already changed the realmd port to 8700 so it wouldnt interfere with the blizzard 3724 port

    rolo … u don`t have the mysql connected with the server .. check u`r mangos.conf and realmd.conf

  4. sprite said

    damn it steve if u keep on sending guys to the reaper site for help they won`t come here anymore … either learn to tell them what they need or close this damn website

    Hi!
    i got the “Logging into game server” issue. I get that far, then i get thrown back into Realm selection again.

    You know how to fix this? I am not in the same network as the server, Use hamachi to connect.

    Hey Stain,

    This is the answer to the problem, it worked for most people :)

    In you hosts file (C:\Windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts), make sure at the bottom it says you LAN IP address then a space then you hamachi IP INSTEAD of something that says ’127.0.0.1 localhost’ (I think it says that). Also, one comment said to allow ports 1400 and 1401 through your firewall and router to. Last but not least, make sure the realmd port (delfault 3724) isn’t being used by anything else. If it is, go to realmd.conf and look for 3724 (not that far down) and change it into something else: E.G. 7000

    Also, if you do change the port, make sure you foward it on your router and firewall AND in your realmlist.wtf file, add :7000 on the end (prosuming the new port is 7000)

    Steve

    pff does anyone knows what this 127.0.0.1 means? well i`l tell u …. it`s the same as localhost BUT it`s in the loop …. if the localhost doesen`t work meaning the server it check`s it up every 28 seconds to see if it`s working or not ,,, that isen`t the problem with many of the server`s .. so stop changing that or in the future when u`l make anouther kind of server it won`t work

  10. Stian said

    tried to change the localhost thing, didnt work. ALL firewalls are off.
    tried to connect while i was at the same network as the server. got the same error. “logging into game server”, then back to realm list.

    think we found what causes it tho, when we type “info” at the server, it says max_players_1. and when we open the mangos config, it says the value is 100.

    any suggestions about what to do? or do we need to reinstall it?

  11. sprite said

    press help in the mangos console and u`l find a command there to set the max limit of the players in …

  12. alpha136000 said

    well im having a lil trouble forwarding ports on reapers new guide that utorrent website gimme error… :(

  13. camdino said

    I was having the same problem and the fix I found for it was to re-run the lan set up and use your real IP address not the lan ip.

  14. hmm might try later bandwidth low…. and if that dosnt work its prob cause i didnt port forward correctly… :O

  15. Emilyxz said

    thats for sure, dude

  16. Jack said

    I Am having the exact same problem Stain had, it lets get get logged in and right up to the character selection screen and then it boots me back, now i have tried everyone but it just does seem to work, i did what u said steve opened 1400-1401 changed the realmd port but none of its helping. Any suggestions?

  17. steveya said

    #Jack

    You opened the new realmd port as well?

  18. mrman1983 said

    Hey, I’m able to logon to Mangos on my home network, but when other people try to log on from outside the network, they can log on, but they get stuck at the “logging into game server” part, and it doesn’t go anywhere. Any ideas?

    Steve

  22. Domitus said

    Okay, so I tried that, and everyone is still stuck at “Logging into game server” and i’ve tried changing ports, and that didnt work.

  23. steveya said

    #Domitus

    By that I take it you’ve tryed everything that was said. That’s all I know you can do; have you made sure you’ve done everything it says on reapers guide?

  24. Domitus said

    Yeah, I did. At least i’m 90% sure i did.

  25. steveya said

    90% sure :P

    Check the other 10% and see if you find anything wrong.

  26. Domitus said

    Yeah, i’ve checked everything, Ive changed the port to 7000 and it still doesn’t work

  27. Jove said

    Hey guys, just because your port is open doesn’t mean your setup. You also have to forward that port to the ip of the server. Go into your router interface and look for something like NAT, port forwarding (or GAME SERVER on some D-link’s). I have a D-link DSA-3200 and it works well.

  28. Wijjyu said

    Still not any solution for logging into game server problem? I tried with the one that you suggested but it didn’t work

  29. david said

    i can connect but when i do it states to “open socket 172″? …so how do i do that, keeps leaving me at the realm list

  30. steveya said

    #Everyone
    Sorry for me being behind. I don’t know why.

    #Wijjyu
    Have you port fowarded properly?

    #david
    I haven’t seen that before. It looks like something isn’t letting your server work on your computer. I don’t know what though.

    I had everything working just perfect on the 2.3.3 wow with 5472 ver. of mangos. I got it working from some cheap video someone had made and that was hard enough from all the decompression of the video. I tried to upgrade the reaper’s version (that was a huge mistake). The guide says “how to setup 2.4.x in 3 easy steps. If anyone here has actually setup and ran it public knows there is like 20 steps to make before you can play or even play public. The only problem i’m having now is that when other people log on is just hangs at the realm screen. Logon is successful just no realm or something. I can play on the host machine though.

    You can try the things on this comment: http://steveya.wordpress.com/2008/02/16/setting-up-lan-on-reaper-x-mangos-making-it-public-help/#comment-223

    But use your dns (if you’re using that) or instead of the hamachi IP if you’re not using hamachi.

  33. michael said

    For some reason i can’t find the host file in vista. I havent tried to find it elsewhere or serch to change if Windows had renamed it or something. I am using a dns but somewhere i didnt configure it right. Somewhere! Thanks

  34. michael said

    You as persistent as i am i knew i would finally get it again. I don’t need a dns nor do i need any other 3rd party software like “Hamachi” which i was trying to use.It’s just a local lan party right now anyway. If i make this public i would probaby use hamachi just cause i like the extra control features. This is what i used to make me understand how the server process works anyway. http://forum.ragezone.com/f114/mangos-guide-running-a-lan-and-wan-server-271443/.
