    Yeah I expected the majority of us would want to migrate to the global server when it becomes available. This is more of just a temporary service in the meantime. :)

    Hey, this didn't work for me, for whatever reason I can't connect. I have tried port forwarding using portmapper, what else should I try?

    Your not supposed to connect to your own server, Your supposed to open a lot that ends with xml and then let other people connect to it.

    Greetings and thanks for the guide, i'm supposed to have done everything... thouuu the web of No-IP seems different from the description, there s a dashboard where it tells "1 active hostname" and "1 unconfigured host". If i click in the first one some information comes resembled to the image you posted in the guide so it seems fine.

    Appart from that i am still not sure about how to set up my server once inside the game... so i started trying things, i made myself a home with space enough to make two houses more soon, in case some people that reach my trust want to try having a house close to me. But, i dont know yet if what i am doing is online or not, or if someone may be able to visit it or not if i give the adress,... and how to manage things as admin. Like how make people doormates or admins too...

    I know too much questions from a noob in this x)

    You have to port-forward your router, if you can't do that then don't bother trying, it's pretty technical as it is, plus, there are enough servers to play on

    Exactly, people somehow can't get it to work, which is why I say, don't bother, especially if your router won't work with FreeSO, even after port-forwarding

    Remember that this setup is a temporary problem caused by the fact that people need to actually host their own lot servers. I don't even know what this portmapper program is... I do it manually.

    nope, nope and nope. Thanks for the tutorial but I couldn't get it to work at all.
    #6 is what got me. what client?

    How does the server I just signed up for turn into a TSO server? And then how do I connect to it via Freeso.

    Open the port needed and once u've done it, open an offline lot in freeso, it will automatically become online if u give ur frans the public ip u can get @ whatsmyip.org

    I'm trying to do Lan server instructions. Do I just give my ip address to my friend?

    Yes, all you need is your local private ip address once you enter a lot.
