How do I connect to a dedicated server With Steam Sessions?
Hello. I've been following tutorials to set up a dedicated server with Visual Studio. I am using the advanced sessions plugin to find and join servers. I also set my dedicated server to advertise on steam in Visual Studio by changing some settings as mentioned in this Answerhub Post: https://answers.unrealengine.com/questions/260999/creating-a-session-on-dedicated-server-launch.html However when I run my game and dedicated server as shown in the picture below I can't see the server, and cannot join it even using console commands like : open 127.0.0.1 . When i do the server does nothing and the client does nothing. It seems as though adding steam to my project has disallowed me to see my own server. So thing brings up the question:
Is it Possible to connect to a dedicated Server Hosted on your own computer if the computer is Advertising it to Steam? I'm a little confused at how dedicated servers are supposed to work. Do I have to port forward if i am already using steam? Any help would be appreciated!
Definitely make sure you have the correct ports forwarded. You will absolutely need a second computer, as well as a second steam account. One to host server, one to join.
