How do you allow connecting to servers?

Recommended Posts

I have strict off.... 

 

For some reason, the geo filter won't acknowledge the servers.

Ideally I would like to be able to connect to just the closest ones. 

I believed I'm only connecting to p2p games.

 

Any advice?

There are a lot of servers that are currently incorrectly classified as peer when they are actually dedicated servers. Netduma are currently in the process of preparing a cloud update that will rectify this.

The best way to tell if you are on a dedicated server or a peer host is, when you are in a game, go to the network menu, if the long number at the top right ends with E then it’s a dedicated server. If there is no E at the end of the number then it’s a peer host.

Turning strict mode off pretty much disables the geo filter so I would advise keeping it ticked so you get the closest connection possible.

Welcome to the forum! The advice above is awesome. We are working on a cloud update as Pollutionblues said - hopefully it'll fix a lot of the issues you might be seeing.

Thank you so much. 

Would you be able to tell me how to exclude or favorite servers? 

Thank you again! 

To do this in DumaOS (if you don't have DumaOS, sign up here: https://netduma.com/r1-dumaos/) just enable Strict Mode and keep any servers you don't want to connect to outside your radius.

To 'favourite' a server, just click on it and click 'Allow' on the Ping panel below. If you wanted to never connect to it just click 'Deny'. I hope this helps!
