Hey, 5.0.0 and 0.4.17 are network incompatible. This is because 5.0 is a major release which break network compatibility with older versions. Note that in the AAA world, it's common to break network between individual versions, yet alone major versions.

If you're connected to the same WiFi network, you don't need to do port forwarding.

Obtain your local IP address (should look like 192.0.A.B) . You may be able to obtain this in your network settings (I don't know windows). Alternatively, you can definitely do this by opening up Powershell or Command Prompt and typing: ipconfig.

Note that connecting to your public IP address from within your network will likely result in a time out, which is probably what your error is about (for techy people: this is due to NAT punchthrough issues)

Thanks rubenwardy !!! I didn't expect anyone to answer and this is my first ever post on a forum, I will try to find a matching version , and no we are not using the same wifi :( I thought I've done everything correctly! Didn't face any problems getting the IP and the port forwarding , so i guess its the version!!
Thanks again and have a good day !!!!

Hevorkx, Hi i have two questions.
1. Is the problem solved?
2. if its solved could you put something like [SOLVED] in the topic title?
So ppl like me who search problems where they can help, but its already fixed.

Thank you very much, -Majochup
