  2. Hi there, Guest!

    We have been having issues with server connections lately, and you may have been disconnected immediately after trying to join the server.
    If you try and rejoin the server a second time, this should resolve your problems. If this does not, only then should you post about the matter.

    If you are using the webclient, a prompt will likely appear, stating the following:
    "Could not connect to the server. It could be offline, the address could be invalid, or you might have trouble connecting. You will be taken back to the list of servers."
    Click "OK" when that prompt appears to be taken to the server list. If you then try to reconnect to the main server, it should allow you to connect.

    If you think you have banned, due to not being able to connect after the second attempt, then please post an appeal in the Disciplinary Committee subforum. A link to the forum can be found here.

    If none of this helped to resolve your issues, please follow the troubleshooting image here.

    I've been playing for a while, but today I wanted to try my hand at running the server myself. However, I seem to be having the same problem I had once before; Everything looks fine, everything runs fine, but only I can connect... I've had 3 different people try to connect and neither of them can get it. Basically, it reacts as if it were loading, but it really doesn't, at no point does it say that it failed to connect, or that it's trying to connect at all... I know the problem is with the port forwarding, but I don't know what it is I'm doing wrong, since I've followed guides and all...

    There is a good guide over here, at http://pokerealm.com/articles/server-setup.php
    Try this.

    and for the last step, you can manually ( I prefer this ) forward 5080 by going into your Router's setting, which is usually found at 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1
    and to log in, the user/pass is usually something like, User/User, or Admin/Admin.
    Then you go in port forwarding, put in the IP address you got by using /ipconfig all where it is, and put 5080 for the ports.
    I prefer this as it is a good free alternative

    Then you're doing something really wrong. Try again, following it step by steb.
    All you need to do is get your PC ip, gateway ip and add a rule to your router (which is the gateway).
