Bug - Lackey Shows Wrong WAN IP
« on: October 19, 2021, 04:17:13 pm »
When I tried hosting a game for a friend to connect directly to, we tried using the WAN IP shown in Lackey, but this consistently failed to connect. I also tried connecting to my own game by putting my laptop on hotspot wi-fi and connecting via WAN IP, but this also failed. (LAN connections and using the server both worked fine). I was checking my network settings and found that the WAN IP displayed in Lackey doesn't match up with the one shown in my router config and by whatismyip.com.

Using the correct WAN IP address allowed me to connect without any problems, so, from my perspective, the immediate issue is solved, but figuring this out was a rather frustrating experience.
