Hi everybody - I am having some trouble with setting up and connecting to my dedicated server through remote desktop, and I would really appreciate any assistance.
We are making a simple multiplayer mobile game in UE5. I followed the official docs regarding setting up a dedicated server. I have built the engine from source, created Server.Target.cs, built and packaged it. I did not make a separate client target but rather just packaged the default build target (as per the docs).
Everything works fine locally when I run the game and server exe’s separately. But when I copy the packaged server files over to the remote desktop (where the actual server is running), run it and try connecting to it as a client I get this error:
“FailureType = OutdatedClient, ErrorString = The match you are trying to join is running an incompatible version of the game. Please try upgrading your game version., Driver = PendingNetDriver IpNetDriver_21**”
I tried googling this and had no luck. The builds/packages are identical with what I have locally and what I copy to the server desktop. I tried packaging Shipping versions, rebuilt the engine from source and retraced all the steps - all with no avail.
An associate with a lot more experience recommended us to change to UE4, which would be less than preferable to say the least.
Any help would be much appreciated!
