Me and refan got our servers up and running and now we're trying to connect to each other
Do we need Apache?
Few different options, to be done by whoever will be the client:
1) Use your own DNS server. This involves changing DNS server entries within the VM. You will need to change your DNS entries in
to point to the IP of the other.
www01.kddi-mmbb.jp definitely needs to be changed, but optionally if you also want to connect to the other's DNAS server you will need to change gate1.jp.dnas.playstation.org.
and you should be good to go. Make sure Outbreak's DNS settings are pointed at your own server.
2) Change the above entries on your router's own DNS server if it allows custom entries - that way you don't need to constantly roll your own DNS server. Then point Outbreak DNS to your router IP.
3) Point your Outbreak DNS settings to the IP of the other person and use their DNS server. They will need to forward UDP on port 53 on their router to the IP of the VM. This option is intuitive since the other person is serving Outbreak anyway.
Whichever option you pick, the person serving needs to forward TCP ports for the servers:
443 for DNAS;
8200 and 8300 for the lobby servers;
8590 and 8690 for the game servers.
