Thanks to a New Discovery from someone on IRC There is another solution to LoopBack Issues. I have not tested it but check it out, as others have.

If you are running 64bit Windows, double click on OpenSim.32BitLaunch.exe

but instead use If you are running 64bit Windows, double click on OpenSim.exe

Running 64bit native would be a dream once the bugs are worked out.
I dream of that day.
No more "out of memory" errors.

So I'm obviously reviving a thread that hasn't been updated in about a year, but I've followed everything here, got ports forewarded, loopback hack installed, dns server by No-IP going, and I can't seem to connect to my grid. Since the tutorial doesn't seem to cover internet ports (8002 and 8003) and only the local ports (9000 and so on), I'm pretty sure that's my issue. I'm not sure, however, what IPs and ports to change in either my opensim.ini or standalonecommon.ini files.

Any ideas?

I can copy/paste my current configuration if it'll help.

I'm trying to get it online so my friends in another state and such can connect and beta test this with me.

8002/8003 are NOT required to be port forwarded for regions connecting to osgrid (or simulators running in standalone mode).

Foxxe Wilder {L_WROTE}:
no router?? geez you are either very trusting or very naive. I could never allow my computer to be regularly attacked by leaving it wide open to the internet and let's face it, MS software has more holes in it than the red light district of Amsterdam so let's not assume to trust the shabby firewall software that is regularly targetted by hackers.

In the future I suggest you include an explanation in XP as no one in their right mind would TOUCH anything above it (Vista being a major mistake and Win 7 being a very bubblegum interface and still not fully accepted)


MS has professional hackers in their employ to find vulnerabilities .. so they can fix them in "patches".
Well, now that Windows 10 is out .... XP is no longer supported. Windows 7 is being upgraded to Windows 10.
(A freebe I'm not all that crazy about because this means a lot of older software becomes legacy and will no longer function).
You lose your Windows 7 capability to restore unless you have a separate installation disk.
No amount of firewall / anti-virus / anti-malware is of any use against ignorance.

Somebody or (several somebodys) needs to upgrade Opensim .. seriously before it becomes outmoded.
This is especially true for the DotNet 6 framework (while we're still slogging around with 4).
