Making my own server

Post by Pyrarrows » 18 Mar 2009, 02:32

I want to make my own server, and put my own maps onto it, which server would you reccomend, and how exactly would I get it set up?

I have both compiled, the eathena one running, and it's possible to log into, but if I set it to the IP Address outside my router, it won't connect to itself, this is a known issue with my network, others are still able to get into other server programs (Webserver, another gameserver) if the ports are forwarded. I can get in via the LAN IP Address though.

I have yet to get the other server running though... :?

Thanks in advance! :)

Leave the login ip in char_local and the char ip in map_local as 127.0.0.1. Set everything else to the outside.

eAthena. TMWServ is not fit for real gameplay yet.
  • former Manasource Programmer
  • former TMW Pixel artist
  • NOT a game master

Please do not send me any inquiries regarding player accounts on TMW.


You might have heard a certain rumor about me. This rumor is completely false. You might also have heard the other rumor about me. This rumor is 100% accurate.

I have been able to log into the server, but when I set it to allow me to log in from the outside, TMW just crashes (The client)

Here's the last lines from the lan_support.conf

Code: Select all

// put here the LAN IP of your char-server
lan_char_ip: 8bitworld.015.info
//lan_char_ip: 192.168.254.2

// put here the LAN IP of your map-server
lan_map_ip: 8bitworld.015.info
//lan_map_ip: 192.168.254.2

// put here the Subnet mask of your LAN
subnet: 8bitworld.015.info
subnetmask: 255.255.255.252

//subnet: 192.168.254.0
//subnetmask: 255.255.255.0
The commented out lines are the ones that allow me to log in from another computer on the network, I actually don't know the subnet mask of my DSL Modem, I could find the actual IP Address, I have a program that updates the DNS link to my network once a day, so I don't have to fix IP Addresses every time the modem goes down (Which is rare, but is annoying when it does happen)

The LAN support file is for computers behind your firewall, so it needs to have your server's IP, not the outside IP. For those outside the firewall, edit login_local, char_local, and map_local and set the IP that matches the file name (ie the login IP in login_local) to your outside IP.
