My external game servers need to connect to several of the MySQL DBs for my website.

Do I need to open UDP incoming port (27015) from my game servers? If so, how?

Thank you,

Hello Patriot,

Typically, mysql databases can be connected through port 3306 (default port). If you're trying to let someone connect to your database from the outsite, you will need to change the REMOTE MYSQL setting to allow the IP of the person who's trying to connect to be allowed.

UDP ports are typically changed in network router settings - not something here. That's up to your software application instructions.

If you have any further questions, please contact technical support or leave a comment at the bottom of the page.
