Connecting to Multiplayer Using a Proxy

Postby KSLC » Sat Apr 06, 2019 2:28 am

Hey all! It's me, Nathan, and I have a simple question: Is there a way to connect to a multiplayer server through a proxy, or is that all handled internally? My OS is Ubuntu 18.04 if that helps anything.

I don't recommend it. There are lots of lookups, probes, and downloads started when starting FG, and the MP Server connection process has some automatic logic to find the closest server to you.

Proxy, no. VPN or NAT, yes.

I could be wrong though.
I speak only for myself.
