uPnP Initialization Failed

Question

Hi there,

 

Having a small issue regarding Upnp initialization. I'm thinking it is because I run my internet via a hotspot from my phone. I don't have access where I am to a wired connection with a router.

 

I have attached a photo for further details - if anyone is able to help assist.

You can't port forward to host a game for the public via a phones hotspot. A phones hotspot doesn't have a upnp service.

 

Nothing to worry about until you want to make your game public, you can develop locally as you have found, and when time comes you will want to use a different network or rent server hosting.

Essentially, that isn't a big deal if you're developing your game.

 

simply means that the server can't expose itself to the internet for others to join and you'll either have to do this manually or find a different place to host it at should you want to have others join you.

 

Mind, not every type of internet connection is capable of hosting servers. Some networks either block it or just make it virtually impossible. (Such as cellular networks)
