UDP Lobby Server
« on: October 04, 2013, 09:08:56 PM »
I modified the standalone server example to just run an external UDP lobby server. However when clients start a server, their internal IP address is shown rather than their external.
I'm just using the example menu for hosting servers inside of Unity.

How can I get it to show the external IP?

The way determining of an external address works is TNet does a web request to a remote website's php script which simply returns the IP address. This is not possible when targeting the web player unless the remote website has a policy server set up. There have been a few threads on this in the past, where I've even posted the actual script that I've used on the Starlink's server.
