Dolphin Netplay with pfsense
« on: February 04, 2018, 12:01:21 am »
I saw this topic has been posted here before but never followed up on. So I hope someone can help me work through this and save all the poor netplayers struggling with this.

Dolphin is a Gamecube emulator that uses traversal servers to allow online play. This is done by hosting a game, getting a host code, giving that host code to the other player, and having them enter that host code into their netplay session to connect.

I am able to use the direct connection option with most players, but it requires giving the other person my IP along with a port I've opened up. The much easier to use traversal mode just does not work.

I have already tried enabling UPNP and it doesn't seem to have any effect.
