Hosting a Dedicated Server and playing on the same machine

Post by raquel101 on Fri Nov 14, 2014 3:42 pm

So I decided to resetup my dedicated server that is being hosted off my PC (I plan to move it to another machine later). I changed my server to use port 2312 and left my game on default port 2302. I was able to launch both my server and client and connect to my server with no problems (regardless of order launched) but now all the sudden I can't. (Was working fine 30 mins ago and now after not changing anything it doesn't work). If the dedi is running and I launch halo, I can't connect to my or any server (it just times out). If I launch halo first, connect to a server (I can connect fine), THEN launch the dedi server and then switch to that server on my client it works fine but that's a hassle. For instance I just alt-tabbed and crashed my  game by mistake but now I can't reconnect without closing the server and launching in that specific order. Any idea why my client times out on all servers when my dedi is running? Port 2312 and 2302 are forwarded and my firewall is completely off.

I don't know what is causing this but you should definitely not turn your firewall off.

I know. Was just trying to narrow down the problem. I ended up moving the server to my other machine and it works fine now.  Very Happy

I can easily answer the cause of the problem, had this experienced years ago. The problem is both client and dedicated server are using the same default ports for hosting AND client (yes, the dedicated server does use client port). So, both need to be filled in with different ports other than another Halo application is using in the same machine/network.

Also, if want to run both client and dedicated server on same machine and only preferred run your client to play any single player maps or need to change your settings. You can do that without conflicting the dedicated server.



For others do not understand this, I will make it more briefly understanding.

Spoiler:
You need to add the -port (hosting) and -cport (client) parameters in your Halo application's shortcut properties, yes that means your Halo dedicated server too!



P.S. Please do not ask me why or what reasons the dedicated server are using the client port for. I have not finished the netcode listener, which will be resume from range of 6 months to a year or much later date.
