Shouldn't be, check your port settings & forwarding, everything else being equal it makes no difference at all if its set online or off, just so long as the port is forwarded & the program is running.

RE: people cannot enter my room

ok ty

now how do people enter my room?
I am entering using Roomname_192.168.1.159:6698, but my roomies cannot get in using this addy. They get this error:

Quote:
[15:48:00] Error. Sad ..this Bot could n0t enter 192.168.1.159.
[A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not
properly respond after a period of time, or established connection
failed because connected host has failed to respond.


obviously the ip is my static one for my machine thru my router, so it isn't going to work.
Is there an easier way for this to work? Or will I have to get external ip all the time [for them} whenever i reboot?

thanks

yes you will
though copy channel name from the menu works quite well ;-)

yes it does if you even get a channel listing [which I do not]
at best these days i get 3 or 4 where I used to get 1100

would getting a host thru a dns service help me at all [no-ip.com for example?]

RE: people cannot enter my room

I was referring to the copoy roomname built into the WCS menu , not winmx, up at the top of the WCS window Copy > Channel name, which doesn't rely on the main channel listing

Free no-ip accounts are little use for what you're looking for as Winmx chat doesn't use dns, however, you could abuse such a service to get your ip using
ping free-hostname.no-ip.com

& note the address from which you get returns (or which times out waiting for reply, if your firewall is set not to answer ping).

Sry WCS running under linux version, which does not have that "WCS window Copy > Channel name"

but that's OK, once I enter my room in winmx, I can get /channelname.
