If the server is public do you still need to forward a port?

I was looking through the instructions on how to start the server and how to join the server, and under ‘Joining a server’ it doesn’t mention anything about needing to forward a port or use a VPN is this not included as it was mention under the previous topic or is it because you don’t need to?

That’s right, if you’re joining a server it usually depends a lot on what server you’re joining. If the host has set up port forwarding there’s nothing you need to do except enter the IP to start playing!

Otherwise if the host is using a VPN you would also need to set up the same client and join their network :slight_smile:

Hope this explains it!
