iGOR Part / Documentation / Easy hosting with iGOR in 6 steps

  1. Make sure GPL is version and bandwidth patch is applied.
    If you want to do an easy check use GPL Patch Inspector. You find the latest version here: http://forum.rscnet.org/showthread.php?t=240598
    Here's a small picture how to check the bandwidth settings:

    bwpatch settings

    -If More cars patch is missing, click '1' and then 'X'
    -If Cars behind patch is missing, click '2', then '2' and then 'X'
    -or if both are missing - do both

    Make sure core.ini has these lines:
    net_mdm_client_send_every = 3 ; Client packet freq on dialup
    net_mdm_client_send_size = 84 ; Client packet size on dialup
    net_mdm_server_send_every = 3 ; Server packet freq on dialup
    net_mdm_server_send_size = 132 ; Server packet size on dialup
    net_use_mdm_bandwidth_for_tcp_ip = 1

    And check the firewall settings. GPL+iGOR needs these ports open:
    Port 113 (TCP/incoming) - not essential
    Port 6970 (UDP/outgoing)
    Port 6971 (UDP/incoming)
    Port 6667 (TCP/outgoing)
    Port 30196 (TCP/incoming)
    Port 30196 (TCP/outgoing)
    Port 30197 (TCP/outgoing)
    Port 30198 (TCP/incoming)
    Port 30198 (TCP/outgoing)
    Port 30199 (UDP/outgoing)
    Ports 32766-32786 (UDP/incoming)
    (More in depth explanation on which port is which can be found on iGOR documentation - iGOR technical)
  2. Start iGOR and click on HOST

  3. Click on host locally

    host locally

  4. check settings

    - if you wan't to be on the safe side - leave Client authentication unchecked, but do notice that it's then possible to connect with both 65's and 67's. If that is unacceptable, be adventurous and check the Client authentication checkbox.
