last edit: TL;DR after lots of trying, I can't connect to my epic server via direct IP but in the server list it works. I tried multiple setups. What gives? My steam friend can connect to it via IP now.
I created two servers with ASM.
I set my hamachi IP in ASM and joined through Epic console (open ip:port)
The server then showed up in my server list and I always joined through that. I played alone.
I didn't play for a month, but kept the server and game client updated.
Now when I try to play with a friend, he can't join via direct IP. I can't join myself via direct IP either. Only via the server list. He can't join via the server list because my server is not in it. (since it's LAN only I assume)
I use no mods. I reset winsock. I restarted my pc many times.
Why can I join via the server list, but not via direct IP?
edit: firewall is completely disabled. It says timeout when trying to connect via direct IP.
edit: hosting the server on a different device and Internet connection now. This time via public IP address with port forwarding. I (epic) still time out when i try to join, but my steam friend is happily playing right now... what the hell is going on? I have set up ark servers a billion times, but right now I just can't connect.
