There are two ways to make a domain accessible from the outside Internet.

  1. You may register your domain with the Metaverse server by creating a Domain ID in the domain's web panel found at http://localhost:40100/. (Experimental)

  2. Alternatively, you can manually open the following ports on your router and firewall:

    • 40100 : (tcp) administration web portal

    • 40102 : (udp) main connection for clients

Windows

  1. Download Vircadia (full, not Interface only).

  2. Use the Custom install option and ensure that both the Vircadia Interface and Vircadia Server options are checked. Vircadia Server is the Domain server.
