Port Forwarding help

Post by ginjok » Tue Oct 13, 2020 11:13 am

Hi, I recently started using UMS and it works great for playing stuff on my network, but I want to access it out of network. Googling a bit about it tells me to set up port forwarding, which i'm not familiar with, how would I set this up, and then how would I access it?

Apologies if this isn't the right place for this, I wasn't sure where to post it.

in my router I am forwarding the port 9001 /tcp, the local ip should be the local ip of the machine that is running UMS server. IF you are running windows you should also consider allowing tcp port 9001 also though windows Advance firewall settings. If you are using Linux such as Ubuntu you should allow port 9001 like so through Terminal

sudo ufw allow 9001/tcp

Once this is complete you should be able to access UMS externally via [external_ip}:9001 where you are referencing port ;9001
