Default Private Login Server, remote access

I know, I know, lets beat this dead horse a few more times. I see question after question asking about it, and nobody really answering the questions. Is it possible at all to allow someone across the internet to connect to my server, and play, using the private login server...??

I have it setup, really nice, or so it seems, and I can connect locally, and it plays fine and dandy, but my buddy, who I set all this up for, cannot login and play. Poor fella is going crazy ever since I told him I was going to try setting it up for him. If anyone has been successful at this, please help.

If its not possible, lets put it out there, and once and for all, I'll quit trying.
I had one setup years ago when it first came out, and the login code was all hush hush, and all that. I thought, at least it sounded like we had gotten past all that BS, and a private login server was finally possible..

Thanks for reading, and I hope someone can help.

Peace,
Lynny

Yes it is possible if you setup everything using private LS.

It has been a long time since I did this, but I think it was a combination of using your public IP in some spots and your private IP in other spots when dealing with config files. Then you obviously have the firewall ports and port forwarding you need to do. The ports should be an easy one, but the config files always was a trial and error affair for me when I did this.

Thanks for the replies!

Now, I need replies from those who knew actually know how to set it up.
I've fought and fought..changed IPs around till I'm dizzy..and still...

Error 1017 for my buddy when he tries to connect..
We're both running ROF2 client.
