Before anyone gets too far into my issue, I have already successfully setup multiple servers and have no issues connecting to them normally.
I'm trying to do something a little different than normal, I'm trying to host and connect to a server, from my own system, without any active internet. This is my normal setup, but usually I have internet. I'm just wondering if this can be accomplished.
The issues I've run into so far is: -ARK Displays no listed games in LAN -Steam DOES display a server in LAN -adding "localhost:27015" to "favorites" in "servers" (in steam) brings up the name of my server, but doesn't connect -connecting through steam servers (view>servers within steam) in the LAN game section, displays localhost IP address (192.168.0.0:7777) this method also doesn't work
The error I get anytime I try to connect is "Unable to query server info for invite".
I have also double checked and made sure Valve and Battle Eye anti cheat are off as I read that those try to connect to the servers or something.
ASM run dialogue window pops up and says "Server successfully started" and displays no errors.
With internet I have no problems at all. I'm not too worried if I can't get this to work, was just hoping to find a yes or no. Thanks in advance!
I think your client should be online at least at the moment you join the server. The server will ask your clients for some sorts of digital certificates which can only be acquired through internet(steam or epic version) proving your client a genuine copy.
BTW: There does exist some cracked server exe (while severely out dated versions) allowing not certificated clients to join.But I would rather not discuss such things here. (May casue legal issues to the forum)
