Hello, this is my first time setting up a dedicated server.
So far from what I can tell I've done everything and tried all the fixes I could find and my server still isn't responding. I have two separate PCs, one running the server and the other I'm using to attempt access. From what I can tell on the server box, everything is functioning and the server boots. ASM tells me it is awaiting publication, but I've also seen people say that status doesn't necessarily mean the server can't be accessed. I've attempted a direct access via steam://connect/188.8.131.52:27015. I have all the necessary ports forwarded on my router for TCP and UDP: 7777,7778,27015 My ASM is set to connect to steam anonymously, does that make a difference? The Ark version is up to date. Mods are correctly placed and in loading order.
I ended up changing my DNS settings, resetting my router and everything started working. Smooth sailing, thank you.
