If it is you will see a connection in your Terraria server screen. STEP 1) Please visit www.portforward.com for your router IP to login to your router. This example is a Link-sys router. STEP 2) Now you need to login to your router. STEP 3) Now find a section like the one presented here that allows you to port your ports. STEP 4) Open command prompt and type in "ipconfig" to get your ip information than. Now forward the ports using the port number 7777 & if it makes a difference the old port numbers 31337 make them the same on the start and end, and make sure your local machine IP matches the ending octane on the router. STEP 5) Now open the network & sharing center, and click "Change Adapter Settings" Than make sure Hamachi is powered off. After that you should be in the adapter settings folder. Right click Hamachi and disable it. STEP 6) Now open the network and sharing center, and click "Windows Firewall" in the bottom left corner. STEP 7) Click "Allow a program or feature through Windows Firewall" STEP 8) Click "Change settings" to allow you to change settings than find terraria to make sure the home, and public options are checked than click ok. IF TERRARIA IS NOT ON YOUR LIST! - Than simply click the page down a bit and click "allow another program" you can kind see it below "Details" and "Remove". Anyway once you open that right up click "Browse" since it is likely not going to be on the list, and go to the STEAM APPS folder than look in the common folder, and find Terraria.exe in the terraria game folder and add it than continue. STEP 9) Than go back to the previous screen and click "Advanced Settings". STEP 10) Than click inbound rules in the top left. STEP 11) Than click new rule. STEP 12) Click port, and than click next. STEP 13) Now type in port 7777 and than click next until you get to the screen that allows you to name the entry. Name it something like Terraria TCP HOST than repeat this step but do UDP instead.
