Unhappy Cannot connect remotely to Local server via Join IP


I've been trying to introduce some of my friends to PR. However, it's been difficult to show them the ropes, seeing as the Join IP option (remotely joining locally created server) doesn't seem to work for me (and for them). They just get an error message that says failed to join server.

I've looked up and verified my local IPv4 address, and it shows up correctly when I check Server Info in the PR client. It's port 16567, which is the port under Server Info as well. I've changed multiple times my router settings with a new rule to allow port 16567 from said IP, saved, with all remote IPs allowed. Windows Firewall has a blanket Allow rule for all the PR related .exes. Server name doesn't make a difference. Server passwords don't make a difference.

I do have Hamachi installed now, but I would really prefer not to use it (everyone has to get it). Also, doesn't Hamachi just create a new IP and port with which to use in Join IP? I have a feeling that wouldn't work either, given how it is right now.

We can all find the usual online coop and internet servers just fine. Tried both Join IP under both coop and internet tabs to no avail.

Any suggestions? Thanks in advance. I wouldn't be opposed to running a dedicated server, but it would just be for personal use amongst us and as far as I can tell there are a lot of hoops I would have to jump through to get the files.
