    • 3.Your local host ip : - for your True IP.
    • 4. Minimize the Terraria window that is hosting the server.
    • 5.Open another Terraria window and join your server using the IP from step #3.

    Port Forwarding doesn't work with a dynamic IP, most routers assign dynamic IPs. You might want to put a walkthrough on setting up a static IP.

    Thanks for the feedback. I'm not really going to post a Port forwarding walkthrough tho. This is a basic guide that leans to the newbie side.

    Try clicking on allow another program then browsing for terraria on your pc

    I went there, scrolled around: Nothing; went to browse through my computer for the file. I found it but its the loading icon, I looked through the steam file and nothing... I need help. :(
    Edit: Found it, it can pass the firewall but it shows the same error message.
