When hooking up my two clients, I can see one client and I can invite. But the invite does not appear in the other client, and by reading in the console it says something like "ID_UNCONNECTED_PONG from peer *ip-adress here*.

My NAT is also set to moderate, could that be an issue why the second client isn't reciving invites?

Forgot the question itself...
If you NAT is moderate, this usually means that your network is restricting certain ports, and therefore certain packets the game wants to send. Redacted or the client you are using could be running on a port you have closed, and therefore packets cannot be sent or received on the port... Self explanatory really. Give getting an Open NAT type a try (usually done by putting the IP of the computer into DMZ mode on your router or search for the ports needed in order to open NAT type for the specific game on your specific router)

Alright, thank you! I'll get back to you with this.

One more thing, on my screenshot I am testing a cable from computer to computer. Should I try to disable the firewall if I want to play offline/LAN?

EDIT: Disabling the firewall and/or making a rule for the .exe doesn't change the NAT I get

Did you make a PC based rule or a router based rule? I doubt making one on the PC will have grave importance, you need to follow something like this:

Although it's for PS4, you should follow the steps in order to open the NAT type for your PC. I would recommend following the steps taken in the video as that has opened my NAT type across all games on all systems :smile:

Also, did you try 'DMZ Mode' on your router?

It was a PC based rule, since the router isn't involved. I connected the machines with only a cable between them. And disabling the firewall as I said, doesn't fix the problem. :tonguewink:

I'll be sure to check it out! Thank you!

No I haven't tried "DMZ Mode" yet, since I am trying to get it working machine to machine with only a cable. But I will be sure to test it later :grinning:

Oh, I now understand.
Could you message me on Discord? Profound#3240
Perhaps running this over a Network like Tunngle would be better rather than using a crossover cable?

Neat, I sent you a friend request!

I was guessing that I need something like that, but was not too sure
