Add a remote PC to a Lanparty

Post by Storm » Tue Dec 17, 2019 11:47 am

Hi there,

between Christmas and newyears a few friends of mine and me wanted to do a litte Lan party.
Unfortunatley one of them moved a few hundred Kilometers away.

Now I wanted to ask if there is an easy solution using OpenVPN to just run it on my PC, be within a LAN with my friends and the remote PC connects to me, also using OpenVPN.

Then I would Host a game in LAN mode and my local friends as well as the remote one should be able to join the same server.

Is this possible? How would I set this up?
Do I need port forwarding or configure anything else on my router?

Thanks alot in advance would be an awsome Christmas present if I could get it to work :)
