    Hello!
    I've created a dedicated server to use with some friends in a LAN connection using Radmin.
    The problem is that every time a second player tries to connect, the other gets a "Connection Lost".
    What can i do to solve it?

    What is your connection speed set to in rfactor2 settings page, and also be aware that some VPN's restrict the bandwidth

    Why do you need a Software like Radmin for a rFactor 2 LAN Session?

    I'm guessing that your not actually on a LAN, Rafael?
    And you are using - or trying to use - the feature mentioned on the Radmin website
    "Play your favourite LAN games with your friends over the Internet. Free Radmin VPN does not limit the number of gamers. Thanks to the high speed of Radmin VPN, you won’t see the difference – you will play your favourite games as if you were playing over LAN."

    If you are running a dedicated server there is no need to run any VPN type software to allow others to connect. When running your server should show up in the list of available servers so your friends can just connect as they would to any other. If you give it a password then only those with that password can connect.

    20Mbps for both Download and upload. I don't think that Radmin restricts the bandwidth.

    That's exactly what I meant. I may have used the wrong terminology as I'm not an expert on the matter! I'm experimenting Radmin because I can't make it the traditional way. My internet provider says it has something to do with the IP once the port forwarding was made both on the router as the Firewall. as I mentioned, I'm not an expert. Radmin worked very well with other sims.

    I'm unable to it the traditional way. Despite the port forwarding have been made both on the router and the Firewall it doesn't work properly. According to my internet provider it has somenthing to do with the IP.

    I don't share your confidence in radmin not restricting bandwidth.

    "Low-Bandwidth Optimisation"

    Id rather understand why you can't port forward the conventional way.

    OK @Rafael Sullivan. When you fire up the dedicated server does it show up in the normal list of rF2 servers?
    Can your friends see your server as being available?

    My understanding is that @Rafael Sullivan is using Radmin to create a VPN network over the Internet so that all his friend's PCs are all on the same LAN network. In theory, it should work I suppose but I don't know if you would have force rf2 to direct packets over the virtual network rather than the physical network... be that wired or wireless.
    He seems to be saying that his ISP in restricting ports so he can't use the WAN option.

    It would be interesting to see if his server can be seen in the normal rF2 server listings as a WAN server.

    Hi! The server cannot be seen as a WAN server only as a LAN server

    Ummmm... I'm not familiar with having a dedicated rF2 server being used on a LAN... nor Radmin VPN.

    Give me a day or two @Rafael Sullivan and I'll configure and fire up a rF2 server with a simple config and see if I can connect to it OK on my LAN.
    If that works then I'll run Radmin VPN on that server and see if you can connect OK.

    BTW two questions...
    Is your rF2 server running on a separate PC or the same PC you are using as a rF2 client?
    What time zone are you in? I'm UK so currently GMT+1
