At the moment it's not possible to have the server list outside of the master server.

I still have the same problem. No ping and can't join them.

EDIT: Just found out that the problems are here. My teammate can join them, he also see no ping, but he can join them.

Yes and no. Fazza 's servers are behind a NAT router and his ports are blocked (not properly forwarded in the router or blocked by a software firewall).

In this case only people who opened the ports UDP 10600+10610 at their own router can connect. Your ports are still closed (thanks to KPN and their mutilated router firmware) and that's why you have the problems.

any ideas how i can fix this ?

the ports are forwarded to my dedicated server and Kart is accepted in my firewall

To see whether the router or the pc is causing the problem my first step would be to disable ALL firewall and antivirus software on the pc for a test.

If the problem persists, you should have a closer look at the router.
Your port forwardings look like this?

External       Internal           Target       Protocoll
10601 10601 192.168.1.103          UDP
10602 10602 192.168.1.103          UDP
10603 10603 192.168.1.103          UDP
10604 10604 192.168.1.103          UDP

10611 10611 192.168.1.103          UDP
10612 10612 192.168.1.103          UDP
10613 10613 192.168.1.103          UDP
10614 10614 192.168.1.103          UDP


I see that a normal ping to your public IP is blocked which is no problem, but maybe there are other security features activated in your router or cable modem which prevent the communication. Virgin Media's FAQ says that they don't block ports in the range which you are using.

ok so i disabled all firewalls on server and on the router and still i see no ping

ports i have open are 53 tcp/udp and 10600-16010 tcp/udp im running windows server 2008
and my router has custom firmware DD-WRT v24-sp2 on a dlink dir615
all ports are forwarded to 192.168.1.103 my dedicated server machine

how do i allow pings to my external ip address ???

Why only port 10600 to 10610? Try opening 10600 to 10620. Only UDP is needed.
Port 53 is only needed for DNS resolution, you don't need to forward it.

It's not necessary for running the dedicated servers.

i found this http://patrickyong.wordpress.com/2008/05/04/enable-ping-replies-on-windows-server-2008/ (http://patrickyong.wordpress.com/2008/05/04/enable-ping-replies-on-windows-server-2008/)

i can now ping to my dedicated server ok

but i need someone see if its showing a ping in the server list in game please
Title: Re: Online server script

Still no ping.
The link only shows how to enable ping in the internal network.

Of course no, because your server is behind a NAT router. The link you posted will not help to solve your problem with the KRP servers.
Did you expand the port range to 10600-10620?
Title: Re: Online server script
Post by: Fazza on June 09, 2012, 08:40:11 pm
just expanded port range and still the same

From your description everything seems to be ok. Now it becomes harder to find the problem.

I just did a quick google search and found sevreal threads about DD-WRT v24-sp2 on a dlink dir615with with port forwarding problems. Maybe it's a firmware problem?
Title: Re: Online server script
Post by: Fazza on June 09, 2012, 09:07:50 pm
Block Anonymous WAN Requests (ping) was ticked in the router settings
but i still dont think you can get a ping from the server
Title: Re: Online server script
Post by: dibu on June 09, 2012, 09:18:53 pm
Now I can ping the public IP of your router, but your KRP servers still don't show up with a ping.

does any of this make any sense to you ?

It's the hard way to go if you want to use the CLI with telnet or SSH, but you should be familiar with iptables and know what you are doing. ;)

Here is another link for using the web-if:
http://www.dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php/Port_Forwarding

Take a look at the warning in the text, there seems to be an issue with manual port forwarding and UPnP.
Quote
Warning
UPnP port forwards seem to overwrite static port forwards set here. If your static port forwarding is important, turn off UPnP.


And here the link for trobleshooting:
http://www.dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php/Port_Forwarding_Troubleshooting

Which build of DD-WRT v24-sp2 are you using? Did you check for possible problems with this build?

Hello, ive been in this situation whith my server  my only option was to invest in a new router modem  .... Even thought i had access to my portforwarding there was a firewall setting in my kpn free modem that cant be altered....(or kpn will not allow this to be changed)..  ive had to do this 2 times now ... first i had bought a linkys to get round this problem but then they updated me to VDLS2 and i had to buy a fritzbox... i use this to check my ports are open  http://portforward.com/help/portcheck.htm
