I tested this moments ago and it appears that g_password works correctly on the dedicated server for both SP/MP.
I suggest the OP to verify that they set the password correctly. Or lay out exactly what they did and what went wrong.
Is UPnP enabled on you an your friends routers? If not you could enable it on your router by Launch a web browser from a computer or mobile device that is connected to your router's network.
If you can't figure out how to do that there's another way first, launch the game though steam or launch waw without plutonium and download 2 things waw lan fix and Hamachi start a sever on Hamachi have your friend join the server than create a lan game than have the person who isn't the host join the lan game and then set the server settings to whatever you finally you should be able to play.
here's video instructions for method 2: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3gt8mcevY2g&t=84s&ab_channel=MasterBeef96
hey i’m his buddy were trying to play, are u saying the port is the issue or we’re getting booted off every time we try to play, also have u heard of this problem or experienced it yourself? he can connect using connect command but when i try to join server publicly “low ping player” error pops up is the VPS absolutely a fix for this issue or just for protection purposes strictly, thankya brother
Matias95 so you're on a dedicated which means youre probably using 2008/2012 r2 standard or another version of one of those. Like they said it wont work on older versions. i learned that myself few months ago.
it does work perfectly fine on windows 2019 standard if you wonna give it a try.
OHHHHHHHHHHH I see I see, didn't know anything bout wan ip, they are not the same and the wan ip starts with 100 so impossible, any way to fix it? Do i need to tell my network company to take out the cg nat?
