    I have heard lots of questions from people, they are confused due to features of FreeSO that have been changed and all. I just thought I write my own quick tutorial to maybe help some people out.

    People connect to your lot via your No-ip Hostname! For example, mine is fso-playtesting.no-ip.org. I need to give people my exact address so they can connect.
    PortMapper can be downloaded here! http://sourceforge.net/projects/upnp-portmapper/files/PortMapper-1.9.1.jar/download

    Just attempted to create a server, I have created a no-ip address and manually put this into my routers settings. Port mapper doesn't work for me so I input the settings into my router using TCP/UDP with the port 37564.
    I have launched the game and entered a lot, but apparently my connection times out when I use the port check website. Am I missing a step here?

    Try get someone to connect, that just happens sometimes cus the port check website might be far away to where you live i think

    My computer is plugged directly in to the modem, before the router. The canyouseeme cannot see me--should I try the new server name?

    *I tried the server name, but it gets an error saying the server either disconnected or crashed.

    Any way that I can have the server run by itself on my computer? For instance if the server crashes for any reason, is there some way it can reboot itself if I am not home at the time? Can I run the server without having to start up Freeso on the host?

    The most recent version of charvatia attempts to reboot on crash. Of course, if the lot has invalid objects or simply too many, it will likely be stuck in a crash loop. Someone got an infinite loop outside SimAntics with 24/7 somehow, which I haven't been able to look into yet.
