So I was answering some emails today, and generally just taking it easy when a forum post sparked my interest. There was a user “offload” whom has been following Rusty Navigator and patiently waiting for a release in which you can use Rusty Navigator from a second computer. So after responding to the post, I decided to get cracking at it. So a few tv episodes later and a Subway sandwich, I had something together and tested.
I’ve heard your concerns, and I’ve fixed it for all of you. Ive pushed out ANOTHER release today mere hours after releasing 126.96.36.199 which includes the ability to run Rusty Navigator from a second computer. Granted there are some people who are still concerned with running Rusty Navigator while playing Rust in-game for fear of CheatPunch or VAC, which is _completely_ understandable. Especially if you have a larger game library.
Real simple setup. Make sure all the pre-req’s are installed and run Rusty Navigator.
Run as a Local Setup, or a Remote. Clicking remote will pop-open a text box to input the target computers IP. This IP is the computer that Rust is going to be playing on. Hit Okay and your off to the races. All the regular functions of Rusty Navigator work this way as well.
Now a big note to people running WiFi… This will not work with WiFi, only wired connections. If you can force your adapter into a promiscuous mode, it should work but its not really something I’m looking to get into. Another note… Switches are becoming more common now. These are like network hubs, but filter out what packets to send out what ports depending on what MACs are connected. If its not working, make sure this is not the case. Hubs work great.
As usual if you do have any issues, be sure to post them in the Forums.
