    If using a Port Forwarding VPN - like PureVPN - then only the GM needs it.
    If using a Private Network like Hamachi or Zero Tier then everyone needs it.

    Just the GM (beat to it).

    any advice on connecting through it? Is there a guide somewhere? I just bought the purevpn and FG isn't visible through it. The GM/client connection works fine on local LAN at home. I'm trying to connect in a hotel. Here's where I've stripped down to and still no success:

    Connectivity testing at hotel:
    Hotel wifi: set to private
    Mcafee firewall: turned off
    no other security software running
    purvpn port-forwarding: all ports open
    netstat result: 1802 listening
    canyouseeme port 1802: failed
    FG running
    FG test: failed

    Yes, I have searched the forums extensively and not found anything addressing purevpn. I have a specific rule in mcafee even when it's on (needed to get working on home LAN). PureVPN asks me to choose what "type" of connection I'm needing: stream, internet freedom, security/privacy, file-sharing, dedicated IP. None of this is addressed in the volumes of forum posts I've been reading. Thanks in advance for any help.

    tinkered with the purevpn settings and connections more and made a tiny bit of progress. Canyouseeme now shows success on port 1802 scan. But I still can't ever get the connection test in the FG launcher to resolve. It doesn't say failed anymore but it hangs on "in progress".

    Many if us have had success when using the dedicated ipaddress add in at pure vpn. You may not need that anymore but it definitely works with it.

    See this thread as well:

    I’ll response more in full when I get to a computer.
