Hey everyone. Sorry to be the new jerk who's first post is a new topic with a plea for help, but...well I'm a new jerk who has need of help & I couldn't find this specific issue in any of the recent threads.
You see for the past few months, I've been running a very small dedicated server on the Linux box in my living room. It was pretty straightforward to set up, set up the firewall NAT ports, configure the serverconfig.xml etc & it has been running beautifully, right through the Experimental Alpha 19 updates & the Mario Blocks which showed up if I didn't wipe the world (loved colourful @%$*#!s by the way...a little sad to see them go), but just the last 2 days, none of my friends have been able to find my server in the server list & a direct IP connect fails.
I was thinking is was something I'd done (even though I hadn't done anything) & it's working for me locally, but when I tether my phone to my laptop to test, it fails. No server listing, direct IP timeout.
I've re-activated my old Minecraft server on the same box to test & it's working perfectly, so...I'm a little confused.
Has anyone else noticed that the Server Browser has a VERY short list these days? I've checked all my filters on the Server Browser & it's all "Any". I've restarted the server software & the hardware, but no dice.
Does anyone know if the Fun Pimps or Valve have done something with Server ports or the Server Browser?
Would love any help.
