Hi guys so I have been having a problem recently trying to connect to the server on my local network for a soccer game I play. Let me explain a bit more. The game is WE9LE its a older soccer game from 06. A couple guys were able to program some software to allow us to run a server because the origionals are no longer active. Now I have set up the server on a winows 7 pc that I had lying around and it works like a charm. All my Buddies are able to connect and play online without any issues. Sorry I do not know that many details as I just run the server i do not know how it works totally. I do know that I had to use mysql to create a database to store usernames and stuff. other than that i just run a bat file and a cmd window pops up and as long as i keep it open the server is online. Now I have tried to connect to the server via the game in many ways. I have tried my local ip of the server, I have tried my external ip that everyone else that connects uses, and I have tried connecting to the server via hamachi. When I connect via internal or hamachi ip there is a server pop up window that shows up its a welcome screen for my server so that lets me know that it at least sees it. But when i enter my login and password the game stalls and then a few seconds later unfreezes and says server temporarily unavailable. When I connect via external ip I do not get the server welcome screen but when i try to login result is the same I have tried this game on 4 pc's in my home on the same network as server with all the same result all ways. When someone else runs a server I have no problem connecting and playing online but seeing as how I run the 24/7 server that does not help me much. any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
