I am trying to run a game server and the problem with it is that when it starts, it announces itself with one of the internal LAN IPs (192.168.0.11) and the ping won't show. How do I get it to announce itself with my public IP?
Thought so, but how should I go about doing this with an EPC3925, since there seems to be no such options in the control panel or the manual?
By the way, this is a solution for the problem posted by some other person. What should my course of action be with an EPC3925? Thanks.
OK... i have figured this out. Sorry for those that may find this elementry. But it was a lot of trial and error (and google'ing) to find out what was going on. This is for the other guys who have also posted here with this problem.
I tried port forwards as stated above, and also configured a 1:1 NAT in an effort to get the ping showing in game browser. I eventually began to believe that it was NAT that was causing the problem, and configured my linux firewall with a transparent bridged filter. This meant that i could assign one of my public IP addresses to the NIC on the server. So when the server starts up and lists its IP it is a public IP and not an LAN one....eg 203.xxx.xxx.xxx and not 192.xxx.xxx.xxx.
If you dont have a public IP on the NIC of the server that is running the game then the ping with apear as N/A in the game browser. I have fixed our server and it is displaying fine now. Hope someone else finds this helpful.
Sorry, I assumed a different device. Using that alone, it looks like you're out of luck.
