Using Winsock and C++, I have successfully created a server which runs on my pc good and well. The problem is, I would like this same (console) server to run at a different IP address (that is not my home IP address).
If my server (which is called server.exe) is not open, any two pc's running my game (game.exe) cannot connect to each other.
I need a means of connecting one pc to another pc, via my server (but I want my server to be running at a given domain name, like mygameserver.com)--> I don't want to have to have the server open on MY PC, so that players must go through MY IP address to be able to connect to one another.
Rather, I want my server.exe running on a domain name, like mygameserver.com, which would enable two pc's to connect through that IP address/domain instead of my own.
