you could try removing the default gateway on the machine hosting the TWGS server, or blocking access at the router level.
... is this really a 5 year old thread? that's pretty epic
I'll take a look at that. And yes, I've been away for much of these last 5 years, popping in to lurk about once in a blue moon.
I've been wanting to play on my local machine - just myself against some aggressive aliens for shits and giggles. I have two older machines sitting around doing nothing, so I figure I could hook one up to my router, but use it to only access the TWGS on the machine. I don't want the machine connected to the internet as it is old and not secure. I only want it just connected to the LAN.
I figure I could still use my laptop to connect to the hosting machine if my laptop is connected to the same home network that the TWGS is on - meaning if I take my laptop elsewhere to a different network, I cannot access the server because I'm not on the network.
Thanks, Methods. I'll take a look at my router settings. I use a Belkin router if that helps.
If nothing else, I'll plug the cable of the hosting machine in the router to play, then when I'm done playing, I'll unplug the hosting machine from the router, but leave the hosting machine running so the aliens can cycle throughout the universe, extern can run and other crap in the TWGS.
