Re: Setting up a new board

I was able to follow most of the setup instructions to the point where I have the board and mud working. I have mostly just played around on it on my local network, but a buddy of mine wants to join in... I am not sure how I go about setting it up to work for someone connecting from the outside world. Not looking for this to be a public board or anything, just something we can mess around on time to time. Any insight is appreciated!

You need to access your router and setup port forwarding to forward port 23 to the computer running mud. Then give them your external IP.

EDITED:
Sorry meant port 23, I spend too much time at a terminal.

port 23 you mean. 22 is SSH.
