"Remote system is not running the game"?

    Hello Everyone! I have recently put together a tower that I am wanting to use as a dedicated server for 7D2D. I have successfully set this up on my laptop before, however that is just not practical for me. I would like to be able to run the Tower as the server and the game from my laptop. I installed the dedicated server for 7d2d directly from Steam. I have the actual game installed on this tower from Steam as well. I have installed the RAT tool and configured the game settings. I have also installed the 2 required mods: Allocs and BC Manager. All ports have been forwarded and IP reserved. RAT connects and I have 4 Green status lights. IRC is red. (Not Setup) The console connection is working. I can also see the server on from 7d2d on my laptop. However, when I connect to the server via "Connect to Server...", I receive the following error:

    "Connection to server failed"
    "Remote system is not running the game"

    I have also tried to access the game server from the tower and receive the same error. I shut the server down and started again from RAT. I am still unable to connect. I have also tried starting the server from the exe file but I am still unable to connect.

    Can anyone please point me in the right direction? I have done various searches but have turned up empty.

    Seems like things should be setup correctly. If you have TeamViewer, join the RAT Discord channnel here: Discord - Free voice and text chat for gamers

    and I can try and go over things with you and see if I can notice anything. Also if you want, post your IP/port for your server and I'll try and connect myself and see what error I get.

    Thanks for getting back to me so quickly! I have setup discord and team viewer for this tower.

    Hey Trekkan, It would seem for what ever reason, the issue has resolved itself.
    I had shutdown the 7D2D server while setting up discord and teamviewer, then just started back up and tested. Got right in... Thanks for offering to help. I am really enjoying this game and learning how admin and host! The RAT tool is awesome! Thank you!
