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"

Client can't join dedicated server

Hello guys,

for our game, i compiled a dedicated server and packaged a client. When i open the dedicated server executable with "-log" everything looks fine. When i start my client, open the console and type "open 127.0.0.1:7777" nothing happends. There is no note at the server-console and no error log, nothing.

Please help,

grateful, Marten

Hey Marten.Lehmann,

I've tested this by following the guide linked below:

https://wiki.unrealengine.com/Dedicated_Server_Guide_(Windows_%26_Linux)

Using that guide, I was able to successfully build and join a dedicated server with a client. I'd recommend following along with that guide and then seeing if you get the same issue on your end. Also, it shouldn't be necessary to include the :7777 as that is the default port that we will use as far as I'm aware. I did not include this on my end and it worked just fine.

Let me know what results you see after working through that guide.

Have a great day
