    (This is essential and also works for 1.0.4)
    I'm sure everyone here has read this thread highlighting a very important step in the Terraria multiplayer experience: ADDING AN EXCEPTION TO WINDOWS FIREWALL.

    When you run Host and Play you are still using the terrariaserver.exe
    This is why you MUST do this step!(Image thanks to Trunus)

    To fix the problem I'm starting off at this step:

    1. Click Allow another program...


    2. Where it says Path: Click browse.


    3. Navigate to your Terraria installation folder: Program Files\Steam\Steamapps\Common\Terraria


    Click on 'Terrariaserver.exe' press open.
    Then press add.

    And enjoy :)

    having a problem with this, my terrariaserver.exe wants to show up as Terraria with a different icon on the windows firewall.. the name is terrariaserver, but the description is terraria, is there a way to fix this cause i cant put it in the firewall unless i change the description or something somehow

    Same problem here...

    Do you mind taking a screenshot?

    The terrariaserver.exe will indeed show up in your windows exceptions as just 'Terraria'
  7. Shaddie Green Slime

    it cant show up in the exception list as terraria, cause there is already the terraria game there.... that is what my firewall is telling me,
    am i supposed to remove the other terraria and put only the terrariaserver.exe in there?
  8. T3G Silas Green Slime

    Go ahead and try hosting without adding an exception for terraria.exe, remove it and add terrariaserver.exe instead(Technically it shouldn't effect anything, as terrariaserver.exe is hosting, and not terraria.exe.)

    Accidently clicked terraria instead of terraria server....

    Oh my god... Do you actually have a legit version of Terraria? 1.1.2? Or XNA? Try looking into those stuff BEFORE you go ahead and post on a thread that was last active 1 year and a month ago...

    it's impossible... it takes a normal amount of Common Sense to do it, which most of them don't have... :l

    A few things.

    One. There is no necro rule.

    Two. Report and carry on.

    Three. Since I haven't yet pointed it out to a couple of you....failing to report and carry on while choosing instead to make derogatory posts about the person necroing is going to net you an LoC moving forward. I'm not going to give verbals on this much longer.

    Understand that your multiple posts decrying the first poster only contribute to the problem.

    @Tsurugi: all that said, it is good practice to check the date stamps in a given thread - if for no other reason than to give yourself the best odds of getting an answer. For your issue, I'd suggest you post a thread of your own in the tech support section. Good luck sorting your server issues out.

    Oh sorry, that was my essay. Anyways, Really? I rechecked the link and the message is posted quite clearly o-o

    Does it happens while hosting a server or while running Terraria in general?

    Make sure you have Framework 4.0 and XNA Framework 4.0 installed.

    It always happens when i host a multiplayer game. :/ My single player games are unaffected by this. Of course, i want to show off my world to my friends but because of this problem i can't. XD Oh, and yes, i have both of those installed.

    You're using the in-game host & play I guess? I would suggest to use the dedicated server.

    Noob Question: Uhm.. What's that and where do i get it?
