Having trouble with ports/firewall - Linux

Postby Plorine » Fri Oct 09, 2015 8:55 am

This is an edited post since I've fixed my previous problem.

I've been running a Windows server for a few friends and it's been fine, but I also use the computer to also play Ark and wanted to ease the stress a bit by putting the server on my Linux machine, I've installed it fine, I've forwarded the ports (27015 / 7777 UDP) and added the rules to firewall via GUFW but to no success. I am able to see myself on LAN as expected but I cannot be seen from outside.

I have also tried increasing the port range (27015 - 27017 / 7777 - 7778) since this was listed as a fix in several other boards but this has made no difference.

I am a bit of a Linux noob so bare with me, any help is greatly appreciated and if any more information is needed just let me know and I'll post it ASAP

Im just a linux newbie, but I might be able to help just a lil.

What version of linux are you using to host your server? is the server up to date with the last apt get?

Thanks for the response.

I'm running Linux Mint 17, not entirely sure how exactly to find what base distro it's running since I'm a bit of a Linux noob too but I presume it's Ubuntu 14? only method of finding the distro that I know is lsb_release so if there's an alternate way I'll do it if it's important.

I do not know what you mean by updating the server via apt-get? do you mean apt-get update? if so, yes I am all up to date and the ark version is up to date also, all files validated but the error persists.
