Self-hosted server local network trouble getting to work

I'm trying to host a local photon server (Photon OnPremise Server SDK v4-0-29-11263) with one computer and have some clients on other computers connect. The computers are connected wireless over a router which is not connected to internet. Right now I can't even get the Run Testclient button to work. When I run that it gives Connect Exceptions:

When I run server connected to the internet it starts games but fails to create/join:

I've turned off firewalls and deleted the license since there's no internet access. Can anyone point me in some direction of how to approach this? Is what I'm trying to do even possible? (local network server no internet access)? If not, how should I do that?

Thanks.

  • hi, @infinityx
    PhotonSocketServer will not work without an internet connection.

    About not being able to connect - as you may see master cannot find game server instance. this may happen in next cases:
    1. game server failed to connect to master. (see logs in deploy/log folder)
    2. game server overloaded (see logs in deploy/log folder). This may happen because something takes all CPU in the system.

    so, in any case, we need to see server logs and your configs to say why master cannot find game server instance

    best,
    ilya
  • hi ilya,

    is there any way to make photon socket server work without internet connection? I recall being able to do so previously
  • no, there is no way for this

    best,

    Hi @infinityx,

    Thank you for choosing Photon!

    While my colleague @chvetsov's answer is correct, it's not possible to run Photon Server without internet access as it's required to reach license check servers.
    You could, however, try sending an email to [email protected] and request a special priced "offline" license if you really need it (explain why) for some constraint. You should know that this is not guaranteed and it has its limitations.
