IP Ports

Luxriot EVO Basic IP Port Forwarding

Basic Port Forwarding

In order to connect to your EVO Server you need to know where your server is in the world (WAN IP), your Server IP address that connected to your internet router and your port number (8080 default). If your internet connection uses a dynamic IP address (not fixed) you should be able to set-up an IP tracking service, for example No-IP or DYN-DNS. This service will track your WAN IP against a chosen URL.

Bringing it all together

You will need admin access to your internet router, most common routers support port forwarding (please refer your router manual) this enables traffic arriving at you router externally to be forwarded to an internal IP device (your server). In our example our servers IP is and port 8080 (default). Our WAN is managed by a DNS service and we track our WAN IP with our chosen URL "". If we now place our client computer (or mobile App) outside of our networkour server IP address will be [our.chosen.dns:port]. If you have a fixed WAN IP then you can just use this.

Final Port Forward Steps and Testing
