    Hello all.

    Maybe a stupid question.

    When i look at the muliplayer list sometime when i click at a mod i can get it.

    Now is my question.
    In what for file you must added the downloadlink for all the other players of the world?

    I know that it has to do with http server.

    Hopefully somebody can help me.

    As far as I know, it is a setting in the multiplayer.ini file on the server that hosts the mod:
    Code:
    Enable Autodownloads="1" // Whether to allow clients to autodownload files that they are missing.
    This requires opening the port that will be used for the file transfer on the server firewall:
    Code:
    HTTP Server Port="64297" // range is 1025 - 65535. Used for file sharing

    What we do, Is copy the Packages folder from wherever you have it:

    (For our stuff: C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\My Documents\rFactor2\Packages)

    Into: C:\Program Files (x86)\rFactor2server1\Core\Packages ( our servers again)

    Also make sure if you are running a firewall...to add an exception to allow the http port,

    (HTTP Server Port="64297")

    Restart the dedicated

    and try that

    Also: Make sure you enable the above the same way in the Multiplaye. ini as posted in previous reply from Luc.
