Is there a server somewhere you lot chat?
Also, what does:
** Connection to server terminated
What does this mean? I got connected but then I get the above message.
Damn, I thought that worked, I clicked HOST on the other CS I had up so I came into my own channel locally. Stupid me.
Hmmm. I have setup port fowarding.
LAN IP: My LAN IP
Protocall Type: TCP & UDP
LAN Port: 5094
Public Port: 5094
Setup Application Gateways rules.
Trigger Port: 5094
Trigger Type: TCP
Public Port: 5094
Public Type: UDP
Sorry to hijack.
Router is Belkin F5D7630.
You can test it by opening Cryptosuite 2 times and connect to yourself: one you set as a host with your IP and password, nickname, portnumber,
the other you use to connect to that host and same port and password and use another nickname and you should be able to connect.
So if you like you can set up your host and invite others to connect to that IP / Port / password.
You can see them coming in with Port Explorer and eventually close their connection, etc etc.
When I host a chat it says:
** Hosting secure chat server listening on port 5094
** Available on these interfaces.
If I open another CS and put in my LAN IP it works fine. If I put in my real IP it says:
** Connecting to 126.96.36.199
** Could not connect to 188.8.131.52
To test how the Chat works locally (hosting it locally) ie: connect to yourself:
First set up the host:
- For Server put in your public IP
- Give it a simple Password such as test
- Give your local HOST a Nickname ie: TestServer
- Leave the Port at the default 5094
- Click on HOST
To connect to the Host that you just set up:
- For Server enter 127.0.0.1
- For Password enter test
- Give your self a Nickname
- Leave the PORT as default 5094
- Click CONNECT
- If prompted by firewall, just select yes.
You should now be able to connect...see screeny.
To host a chat and allow others to connect is exactly the same as the former example for HOSTING, except that you should give it a descriptive Nickname, use a different Port number if desired and use a Password with at least 8 characters. You will then have to forward that Port number in you router so that friends can connect to you (let them know the details in advance ie: Server IP, Password and port number.
If you need help in forwarding a port or ports in your router, then your routers manufacturer website should have directions to do so.
Hope that helps,
