I am having an issue joining the dedicated server I am currently trying to host.
I believe it has something to do with mcafee blocking the port.
The port I am using to host the server is port 2312
I used this video tutorial to make the server https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Brb2DicGsGY
I am using sapp and am using version 1.0.10 of halo custom edition.
When I try to join it just says retrying until it says unable to join game.
my init.txt for the server is setup as follow:
'sv_name "APCGE CE SERVER"
sv_public 1
sv_rcon_password ABCD1234
sv_password ""
sv_friendly_fire 1
sv_motd "motd.txt"
sv_ban_penalty 1m, 10m, 1d, 0

My init.txt for the sapp config is setup as follows
'admin_prefix **ADMIN**
adminadd_samelevel 0
adminban 2
admindel_samelevel 0
afk_kick 300
aimbot_ban 300 1

Any info I missed that could help solve the issue just ask and I will most likely happily provide.

When you go into halo CE after setting that server up how do you connect to it in halo CE? Also have you tried scanning your open ports?

If you are running the dedicated server and the Client on the same machine then you need to change the ports for one or the other. Otherwise they will conflict and you won't be able to join the game of the server is already running.

You can either change the server port in the command line or go into your client game and change the ports there.

I started a dedicated server and can't connect to it

Ok so do I need a genuine copy of the game to run a server? Do I need a disc? Do I need a genuine key? When I've set up the server how do I go about connecting to it?

If you haven't already you should purchase a copy of the game

I solved my problem, I just needed to setup portforwarding, which I did using portmapper. I don't remember exactly what I did but I know I only had it forwarding while I had the server running. I'll check what I did when I'm on my computer later today.

do you have an original genuine copy of the disc in order to run this process?
