Battlefront with Tunngle
« on: November 07, 2012, 11:04:33 PM »
OK thanks to phobos, we can bypass gamespy until the get their stuff together. since LucasArts told GameSpy to shut down the internet PC servers.

First, download tunngle:
http://www.tunngle.net/index.php?l=en&pg=downloads


install, reboot, note:  you need admin account, I believe

make a tunngle account, use a real email address

check email, verify account

modify your firewall settings if needed or shut down your firewall so that it will be able to access the internet.

start tunngle, log in at the bottom (be sure to type your password in, im not sure why there are already dots in the password place)

in the search box, type battlefront (see attachment)

click on it

You will see a list of players.  My server account is PLA-Chicago-Server.  If you see that, I am running at least one server.

That is all you need to do with tunngle.


The next step is to start SWBF
select LAN join

see the PLA and other servers

join, have fun.

NOTE:  The server is hosted in Chicago.

IMPORTANT:  Tunngle does not work well with some Belkin routers.  Drugrep got a new router and it works fine for him now.


check out this link for manual portforward:  http://www.tunngle.net/wiki/Port_Forward

A few things to ensure you did when you installed Tunngle.

Step For Windows Vista/7 Users: You right clicked on it and clicked Run as Administrator.
You rebooted straight away after installing Tunngle.
Your computers firewall isn't blocking Tunngle, it will probably automatically add an exception to Windows firewall.
If you are using a custom one you should be smart enough to work out how to add an exception for it.
It may be that you need to forward Tunngle's ports. Perhaps this link can help you http://portforward.com/english/applications/port_forwarding/Tunngle/default.htm.

Do you have any of the software listed on thier incompatible sofware page?

Ill try to set up a FC no cp server on the NFO with tunngle shortly.

VLAN is the best we can do for now until gamespy server gets fixed.

I like this Tunngle.

I particularly like how it disables the virtual adapter when you exit the client.

Seems like a good solution in a pinch.

Thanks for setting it up :)

There seems to be connection issues sometimes it counts busy and says connection to host lost other times it works.

Turn the computer off, wait a few seconds, then turn it back on.

'booting' is an ancient term used to describe getting a computer powered up and ready to run software.

While pulling the plug will certainly power the computer off, I would not recomend that particular method.

I am willing to bet there is a "Shut Down" command on your computer.

On windows it will be something like:
Start button >> Turn Off Computer

I don't know what mac has...

Pulling the plug may cause your hard drive heads to do nasty things and can lead to data loss.
Not every time, but the chance is there.
