Hi folks,

I have a problem to get our new BF3 Server ( hosted by multiplay ) streaming to PBBans :-(

My main question is : Which port i have to insert by adding a new BF3 Server in the PBBan Account Manager -> Server Managament !?

I get 3 from my Provider for our Serverip 85.236.109.217

Query Port 21177

PunkBuster Port 21262

RCON Port 21167

First i tried everything from the "Hub Streaming Guide" with port 21177 = NO SUCCESS :-(

Now i tried it with the PunkBuster Port 21262 an still -> STILL NO SUCCESS

rcon port for setting up your streaming.

Actual game port for adding to your team account.

The default rcon port is 47200 and the default game port is 25200.

Based on what you have posted I would guess that you set up streaming using port 21167 and use port 21177 when adding the server to your team account.

God knows why GSP's take a perverse pleasure in confusing their customers with disinformation :rolleyes:

After a night of frustration our server is not showing as streaming despite me being convinced its all setup correctly.

If someone could please take a look and see what the issue is? Its empty at this moment but was running up to around 2:30am UK time.

Pink Panthers IP: 193.93.45.224:47200 I am sure its set up right through the automated hub, but it just sits there and looks at me :)

Thanks

Mmm ... sorry i have to ask you for a little more details.

I thought, I can only insert one port at PBBans , or not ?

I mean the one I asked for by adding a new server :

You mean there I have to enter the RCON Port 21167 ?

Where i can edit "the actual game port for adding to my team account" ?

Sorry for asking you newbie questions but i only have setup PBBans one time for BFBC2 without such problems.

Do not hijack someone elses topic, it makes it so easy for your query to be overlooked.

Your issue is a simple one.

There are 2 ports you are issued with a server, an rcon port (default 47200) and the actual game port (default 25200)

You use the rcon port to set things up and you use the actual game port when adding the server to your team account.

solution for you:

Add the correct server address to your team account and then delete the wrong address.

Think your frustrated over this and similar issues yogi ... you should be sitting were I am at the moment mate <_>

Ask multiplay if they have allowed UDP to the game server port from port 40000-50000

This is required because BF3 uses windows 2008 or later and the firewall is more advanced than previous windows versions.

Sorry mate.

My English is not the best. Please do not think so, that I wanted to make you or PBBans somehow bad!

I thank for your efforts and know how much work does such projects.

It is only very frustrating for me when I put much work in something and at the end it doesn

Here is another experience of a MP user that may be of help;

http://www.pbbans.com/forums/bf3-mpuk-streaming-big-bat-time-t148219.html

But in reality we are doing the RSP's job for them by sorting out their customers issues that they are getting paid to do :blink:

Yes you are right.

I tried also GGC Streaming, same thing. Our Server will not streaming :-(

I write tickets with multiplay untill there last answer :

"I've adjusted the configs again. There is nothing serverside preventing the streaming. "

I read so many post

Hi Yogi!

I think I got it to work for you. The port for your server is 21167, I added it to your team account - it's streaming :).

You said something about 2 more servers? Do you have more info for us?

##### Share on other sites

What a journey :P

Tell MP that we have done their job for them ... well done all.

##### Share on other sites

OMG !!! Some changes on our journey have worked.

I think I have tried this port on my changes in the last days :scratchchin:

SORRY for the hole work i have made to you and a big THANK to you both !

##### Share on other sites

Hey fozzer i write you a pm ... I would cry even if this would help me !!!

Everthing was fine until Multiplay switched our server to another datacenter ( From Amsterdam to Frankfurt )

In Frankfurt we have the server originally hired. They had "technical problems" so they first setup our server in Amsterdam.

Although I am living only at a distance off 20 km from Frankfurt, my ping to the server now has extremely deteriorated (from 30-45 to 45-75 !!! ) :angry:

The next point ...the server IP has changed to 85.236.105.7

All other settings should be the same ( Ports etc. )

But what shall I tell you... I added the new ip in the PBBan Frontend with the joinport you last told me ... and -> NO STREAMING :(

Sometimes I only want to turn off every PC in my live and run into the wood !

A method of finding if you have added a server to your team account with the correct port is;

Go to battlelog.

Open the server browser.

Type in the server name into the browser search facility (in your case Frankfurter Rummsbude)

When your server is showing, right click and view page source.

Use control + F to search the page source info and type in your server IP (in your case 85.236.105.7)

You should get 2 hits

The second hit will show mapmode / numplayers / maxplayers / updatedat / port

By using this method I can tell that the server you added to your team account has the correct port for streaming (85.236.105.7:21167)

So the problem of none streaming is at your end.

Have you tried running the automated streaming set up;

http://www.pbbans.com/automated-streaming-setup.html (you use the rcon port to do this)

or

Slowly I'm getting a little bit angry at the multiplay support !

They apparently have not moved or edit the important cfg-files.

The problem is that the most of the importan configuration files may not edit directly on clan forge! ( pbsv.cfg for example )

I let your Tool rewrite the configuration via rcon commands and now it's back online.

I hope they now keep their hands from the server.

Thanks again to PBBans!

Your not alone, we are thinking about leaving Multiplay with our servers.

What a bad support they have, don't talk about watching screenshots!!

At least it took a lot less time to get you sorted this time around Yogi :)
