A redirected download server is a separate HTTP server (you can't use the built-in one that runs webadmin, it won't work) that has a uz2-compressed copy of each package file that clients may want to download. For example, if you host the Jailbreak game mode, you should be able to enter the URL "http://myip:8000/Unreal.Tournament.2004/Jailbreak.u.uz2" in a standard web browser and get the compressed Jailbreak.u file.
I got that tip from someone who was also having trouble with the redirect server. (I was desperate, what can I say) Still, I removed the server from [UWeb.Webserver].
One thing that I didn't try is to compress/convert the u files to uz2. Is this step really necessary? I mean can't the client download the file directly it it's original format/uncompressed?
I also tried my webadmin with a direct to file link and it's working, as soon as I hit Enter it will prompt me to download the file. http://myip/Unreal.Tournament.2004/M...P2-Acatana.ut2
I can't figure out what am I doing wrong.
I also found this:
Setting RedirectToURL= - a big GOTCHA on a LAN server - you need to specify the FQDN (Fully Qualified Domain Name) of the Redirect server for this to work.
- Example: (assuming your server is mywebserver on the network domain.local)
(For Windows use 'ipconfig' at a command prompt and look at 'Connection Specific DNS Suffix)
This will FAIL TO WORK - http://mywebserver/path/to/folder/
This will WORK - http://mywebserver.domain.local/path/to/folder/
Or this will WORK - http://10.0.0.20/path/to/folder
I'm not 100% sure how a FQDN works, but I found out that I can't have one on Windows 7 Home Premium. I'm not sure what to do...a workaround...something.
