How To

You can use the Tunngle Community Connection Test to verify the connectivity in case your preferred game is not working. You will need a friend in the very same Tunngle network in order to attempt this.
Before starting the tool verify that you can see him in the Tunngle Network List. If you can't see him please check our Port Forward section and our Can't See Others section.

UDP Discovery and TCP join test

  • Ask your friend to start TCCT in server mode by choosing his own Tunngle Virtual IP Address in the list (use the default port[1] if possible).
  • After he has done this, start TCCT and choose the same port as him (default if he used default).
  • If you can see his IP in the list, then the UDP connectivity test was successful. If you can't there is probably some problem with your/his Firewall.
  • If you can join and chat with him then the TCP connectivity test was successful. If you can't then there is a problem with your/his Firewall.

UDP Broadcasting and TCP host test

  • Start TCCT in server mode by choosing your own Tunngle Virtual IP Address in the list (use the default port[2] if possible).
  • After you have done this, ask your friend to start TCCT and choose the same port you chose (default if you used default).
  • If he can see your IP in the list, then the UDP connectivity test was successful. If he can't there is probably some problem with your/his Firewall.
  • If he can join and chat with you then the TCP connectivity test was successful. If you can't then there is a problem with your/his Firewall.

Interpreting the results

If you can chat both ways it's good news. Maybe the game is the problem.

Notes

These steps are the same you need to do in order to have your games working:

  • Be sure you choose a port in the valid range (1025-65535) or it won't work.
  • Only one client per server.
  • Of course the server needs to be allowed in windows firewall in order to work.
  • Choose a network that is not crowded for the test.
  • Choose the same port that your friend chooses.
  1. In any case do not use the Tunngle port. This is not a Port Forward checker! You should not change the port unless you are sure of what you're doing.
  2. Again be sure that you do not use the Tunngle port. This is not a Port Forward checker! You should not change the port unless you are sure of what you're doing
