Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Join server on public IP address

Hello.

Look at this very simple main menu widget blueprint with two buttons "Host" and "Join".

alt text

I can successfully Host the session but when I try to connect to my public IP address, nothing happens.

I was told to open the port 7777. I did, but with no result. Is there something else I should do? Maybe in the DefaultEngine.ini file or something like that?

My goal is to allow players around the world to connect to my session using my public IP Address.

I also tried specifying the Player in the node "Execute Console Command" getting the Player Controller. That didn't work either.

How do you connect with the external IP 192.168.1.1 if you entered the internal IP into the port forwarding thingy? Simple way to check your ip is explained on google blog simple by google search

Other way is to check what is my ip address and location.

While i haven't tried connecting to my own public ip address (from same computer), can you connect to locally (127.0.0.1) Or have another computer outside your network connect. Not quite sure why you would use public ip address from same computer?

I already tried with the local IP and it works.

But I want my friends around the world to connect to my hosted session. So I need to open the port 7777. I did, but still no luck.

You need to port forward through your router. Open a console and ping your IP at port 7777
