Is your V Rising dedicated server not showing up on the public server list? I understand how frustrating that can be—I've been there myself! When I first set up my server, the only way friends could join was through direct invites or by entering my external IP address directly.

Fortunately, I've discovered a reliable solution that will make your server visible and accessible to all. Below, I've outlined the steps you need to follow to resolve this issue once and for all. Let's make sure everyone can find and join your V Rising dedicated server without any hassle.

How To Fix V Rising Dedicated Server Not Showing Up

The "V Rising dedicated server not showing up" issue is linked to port forwarding. To fix this issue, you need to change the default V Rising server ports (e.g., 9876-9877) to the Steam ports (27015-27016, 27031-27036). After you make these changes and whitelist the ports in your router's port forwarding rules and firewall, you can access the server without a direct connection invite.

Assuming you've already set up your V Rising dedicated server, you can accomplish this by following these steps:

  1. Open the ServerHostSettings.json and ServerGameSettings.json files and modify the values for Port from the default 9876 to 27015 and changing the value for QueryPort from the default 9877 to 27016. These ports correspond to the official Steam ports (you can view the full list here).
  2. Now, double-check your port forwarding settings. Make sure you've correctly forwarded the necessary ports (TCP/UDP: 27015, 27016, and 27031-27036) to your server machine. I suggest forwarding BOTH the TCP and UDP ports! The port numbers should also match what is set in the ServerHostSettings.json file. Consult your router's manual or online resources for instructions on how to set up port forwarding.
  3. Ensure your firewall is not blocking connections to and from the V Rising dedicated server. Add outbound and inbound rules to allow traffic through TCP/UDP ports 27015, 27016, and 27031-27036 for both the V Rising server and any relevant Steam operations.
  4. It would also be beneficial to check the V Rising server's visibility settings in the ServerHostSettings.json configuration files, such as ensuring the ListOnSteam and ListOnEOS settings are set to true, which is crucial for the server to appear in public lists.
  5. Having completed those steps, you should be able to see the V Rising dedicated server in the public server directory. If you're the server host, you'll probably see duplicates of the server (i.e., the external IP and your internal IP)—this is perfectly alright. Everybody outside your network will only see one iteration.

And that's all. These instructions should be sufficient for most V Rising dedicated server issues. If you're not self-hosting the server, you might want to contact the host provider for more assistance if these steps don't resolve the issue you're experiencing.
