[P4D][P4Server] A P4D question, sorry.

24 December 2018 - 08:22 AM

A P4D question, sorry.

I was not new to P4V,
But never create a server myself until recently....
And it didn't work as I expected.

Here is the case:

I have an computer at home, let's call it computer A.
I install both P4D and P4V.
I created 2 users and the related passwords.
I create the depot.
And be able to connect to my P4Server locally with
localhost:1666

But I want another machine connect to my computer, too.

So,
The public network address of the router which computer A connected is:
aaa.bbb.ccc.ddd // let's say these are numbers
I did an port forwarding for my computer A on the router, for port:1666

Then I keep the computer A on and move to another place where I have the computer B.
now I tried to connect to the server on computer A from computer B.

aaa.bbb.ccc.ddd:1666

But failed.....
"Connect to server failed; check $P4PORT.
TCP connected to aaa.bbb.ccc.ddd:1666 failed.
connect: aaa.bbb.ccc.ddd:1666: WSAETIMEOUT"

So did I miss something?
I don't know how to check...

Also I can't connect to server from
aaa.bbb.ccc.ddd:1666
at computer A either.
only

localhost:1666

works.

I don't know what's going wrong...
Thx a lot for the help is there will be any.
