Port forwarding for Open TTD for Galaxy Tab server via BT Smart Hub

Post by PolyglotS » 16 Aug 2018 21:52

I cannot get port forwarding to work on BT smart hub. I have set it up as per BT instructions, but the IP address in my Galaxy Tab field in the Port Forwarding section of the router configuration is completely different from the IP address shown in Open Port Checker tool, which says port 3979 is closed.

I can run the server and others can join when running on the same router, but not when we are on different routers.

Has anyone specific experience of this set up, android tablet hosting the server via BT Smart hub?

Thanks.

mysql? That certainly is not needed.
