[Solved] Hosting a TS3 Server at home

Driving meanwhile :sweat_smile:

you will need static ip or ddns to try to static it some how tooo if ur dynamic ask isp about static ip for wan/ external ip IP

Does this IP address get the router from the provider ??

thats looks like lan address only so internal network only u need to open up ports on your router modem

Resolved now ive connected to his server and all works

Hello my friends cant join the server i did port forwarding internet is in public and did everything right but still does not let nobody join my server

See this Thread: [Solved] Hosting a TS3 Server at home

Ok so I set up a Ts3 free server on my old pc, first i sent my friends the ip but they couldnt connect. Then i forwarded the ports on my router, still didnt work. Next i made rules for the windows firewall to let connections in and out, that also didnt work. I need help I dont know what to do.

PS: I can connect with my new PC which is in the same network, but i also have to type in the ip from the server and not localhost.

And has anyone else outside your network even tried to connect?
Not all router have the ability that you can use your external IP to connect back to your own network.

You as the host machine always use your LAN or Local IP.
The external IP is for the external user connections

Which Ports have you opened? Please read.

It’s normal that other clients can not use localhost when the server is not running on their local environment.


Yes, two of my friends tried to connect from outside of my network. I opened the 10011, 30033 and 9987 Ports. And I am the only one, that can connect with the Ipv4 to my server. And I know that the localhost adress is only for the PC that the server is Running on. I also gave my friends the Ipv4 adress to connect to the server but that didnt work, that is my problem.

  • Make sure your ISP allows UDP traffic.
    This is blocked in some regions especially for Voice software like us.

  • Double check that you only opened UDP for the voice part.
    Some router have problems when both protocols (TCP & UDP) are opened in one rule.

Not sure then why you mentioned that part with localhost from other pc.

Ok now Im lost, how do i make sure that my ISP allows UDP traffic, and what do you mean by double checking that i only opened udp for the voice part?
Btw. I noticed that you are from Berlin, would you like to continue in german?

  • Open your router / firewall and check what setting is there for port 9987 or for the server in general.
  • Read the manual for your router / firewall.
  • Ask your ISP or try other applications where UDP is requiered.

  • German is currently not part of this forum and i don’t think this would bring anything forward.

I have created a virtual server and I am not able to invite people to my server, even by using the INVITE BUDDY option. I give them my public IP address still get an error on their Teamspeak 3 Client.
I have port forwarded 9987 and 30033 ports of my router(D-Link 615), but still didn’t get any solution.

Hope you will contact me and figure out a solution .

Please take have a look in this Thread: [Solved] Hosting a TS3 Server at home

It’s not only needed to open/forward the specified ports to your device in your router but also for the firewall for the device your TeamSpeak server is running on.
And make sure to select the right protocolls.

For sharing your public IPv4 address make sure your ISP did assign such an address to you or people still won’t be able to connect to your server.

Ok thanks for you reply , but can you please tell me how to do STEP 2 which is below

I have done the FIRST STEP which is to add ts3server.exe . Ok for your information i have made them public which you can see

And I hope that this will resolve my problem

Did it actually solve your issue?

Btw. you should probably remove all the entries which do not exist anymore.
Make sure to tick private or public for the profile depending on which profile you’ve choosed for your network.

I didn’t understand which entries should I remove.

Btw can you pls tell me how to Forward the ports of the server on my PC(can you give a step by step instruction

Better remove all entries and add the one you need again.
Hit allow another app and select your TeamSpeak server and tick the checkbox for private and/or public.
That’s enough for the OS Windows.

Ok thanks for helping me out will tell my friend to connect and I hope it works
