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"

Create session on non local wifi

Guys I have a question: the node "create session" (https://docs.unrealengine.com/…/Blue…/UserGuide/OnlineNodes/) does only create a lan session or a local session ? I've tried to use it to let my friend join into a server I've been able to create from that node but i got a problem: if I use another pc connected to the same wifi ,of the host, it find the server and I'm able to join the game but, if the other computer is connected to a different wifi ... nope... someone can help me ?

On NullOnlineSubsystem (so no online service) server discovery only works in LAN as it use multicast packets for server discovery which work only in local networks. Outside (in internet) you need a service that lists servers, services like Steam, console online services (well not exacly sure on that one) provide such service and UE4 support them, so either you use them or your code your own solution (make server register somewhere and provide list to clients... maybe via HTTP?).
