Welcome to this in-depth tutorial on how your friends can join your GPO (Grand Police Online) private server! In this guide, I will walk you through the steps to ensure a seamless gaming experience for you and your friends. So, let’s get started!
Step 1: Share Your Server IP Address
The first step is to share your server IP address with your friends. To find your server IP address, follow these steps:
- Launch GPO and navigate to the main menu.
- Click on the “Settings” tab.
- Scroll down until you find the “Server Settings” option.
- Note down the IP address mentioned under the “Server IP” section.
Step 2: Port Forwarding
In order for your friends to connect to your GPO private server, you need to configure port forwarding on your router. Here’s how:
- Access Your Router Settings:
- Open a web browser and enter your router’s IP address in the address bar.
- Login using your credentials (usually found on the back of your router).
- Navigate to Port Forwarding:
- Look for a tab or section called “Port Forwarding” or “Virtual Servers”.
- Add a new rule by specifying the following information:
- Service Name: GPO Private Server
- Internal IP Address: [Your Internal IP Address]
- Internal Port: 7777 (or the port number you have set for your GPO private server)
- External Port: 7777 (or any other port number you prefer)
- Protocol: Both (TCP and UDP)
- Save and Apply Changes:
- Save the changes and apply them to your router’s settings.
- Your router will now forward incoming connections on the specified port to your computer running GPO private server.
Step 3: Inform Your Friends
The final step is to inform your friends about the server IP address and the port number. Ask them to follow these steps to join your GPO private server:
- Launch GPO:
- Navigate to Multiplayer Menu:
- Select Direct Connect:
- Enter Server Details:
- Connect to Server:
If they haven’t already, ask your friends to launch GPO on their computers.
Instruct them to click on the “Multiplayer” option in the main menu.
Your friends need to choose the “Direct Connect” option in the multiplayer menu.
Tell them to enter your server’s IP address and port number in the respective fields. For example, if your IP address is “192.168.0.100” and port number is “7777”, they should enter “192.100:7777”.
Finally, your friends can click on the “Connect” button to join your GPO private server.
That’s it! Your friends should now be able to successfully connect to your GPO private server and enjoy playing together. Remember to keep them updated with any changes in the server IP address or port number if necessary.
I hope this tutorial has been helpful in guiding you through the process of allowing your friends to join your GPO private server. Have fun gaming and enjoy your time together!
