How to get my server to ping off my VPN IP instead?


Recommended Posts

Hi all. I have a dedicated server up and running.

However, for security reasons, I'd like it to ping off my VPN in lobby. It shows as ??? when I use one, and normal ping when I don't. How do I go about changing the IP for it to ping off?

The IP it registers for pings is whatever IP your request to lobby came from.

Pardon my lack of understanding, but why does it appear as ??? when I use a VPN? As far as I know, VPNs are still assigned IPs that should be pinged by internet traffic in general? So I should still have a number as a ping. Or is this not true because it's not a "real" IP?

It's possible your VPN isn't giving you your own IP but rather using NAT to make you share an IP with many other customers. In that case, because they haven't set up any port forwarding through that firewall, you don't get a ping. Just a theory though, you'd have to check your machine with the VPN active and confirm.
