zandronum searches for nerve wad and stupid ip question

I swear I fixed this issue before. I am trying to build a doom server on my linux mint machine to play on my LAN. I use the following server build command:

Code: Select all

zandronum-server -port 10666 -iwad IWADs/DOOM2.WAD -file Mods/D4Tv2.5.pk3 +sv_nojump 1 +sv_nocrouch 1 +sv_hostname "LAN PARTY"
When I build the server:

Code: Select all

zand_server_build.sh
Zandronum 3.0.1 - 191013-1938 - SDL version
Compiled on Nov 3 2019

And when I connect to the server:

Code: Select all

/usr/bin/zandronum -connect 127.0.0.1:10666 -iwad /home/Uname/Documents/Doom/IWADs/DOOM2.WAD -file /home/Uname/.config/doomseeker/D4Tv2.5.pk3

et al

So, I have a couple questions:

1. How do I stop zandronum from searching for Nerve? I seem to remember it causing problems before.
2. The server automatically hosts on 127.0.1.1, am I mistaken in thinking this is local host? I cannot seem to connect to this address from another machine on the same network, but I can connect on the same machine.

1. Check your ini (~/.config/zandronum/zandronum.ini) and ensure nerve.wad isn't set to autoload for some reason
2. By default, Zandronum will bind to allIP addresses available on the machine. The 127.0.1.1 IP displayed is just a guess as to what address you might want; you should be able to access it via its actual LAN IP or via your public IP assuming port forwarding is set up correctly.

Thanks Sean,

I found my local IPv4 address, it starts with 10, instead of 192, and I was able to connect locally.

I decided to try port forwarding for the hell of it, and opened a range of ports (10666-10670) on my router. I got my global ipv4 address by executing the command

Code: Select all

curl ifconfig.me
in my terminal, and verified it using https://www.whatsmyip.org/

I am now attempting to connect to it using another device by connecting with the flag

-connect xx.xx.xx.xxx:10666 (or whatever port zandronum chooses.)

Unfortunately, I only get a 'connecting to xx.xx.xx.xxx:10666' loop. Do you have any advice for how to troubleshoot this?

EDIT: Never mind. I was able to connect from another device that was not connected to the same network I am hosting my server on.


To anyone else who is having the same problem as me (trying to connect to a server they are hosting from their LAN) you can connect to your server using your server's local ipv4 address rather than your global address.
