    New User map question

    I am a new user running FG Ultimate Classic module in Pathfinder 2e. I am testing it out my running a second copy of FG Demo on my laptop with a different account (replicating player view). My main computer gets green success for setup and I can join the campaign correctly from the laptop. However, when I attempt to share a map, the client laptop gets an infinite loading screen.

    When I loaded my library, I had Player Load Blocked for the module, but Player load allowed for the Player's Guide. Do I enable player load for the module itself also, or would some other issue be causing the map load issue? I obviously only want to share stuff like maps and not all the GM content.

    Damned is referring to FG Unity, but you mention being in FG Classic.

    When you connect from your laptop connect using the local IP address of the GMs computer - don’t use the alias. Does that make a difference?

    Yes, when connecting locally, I had to use the internal IP to make the Map work. When I connected to the external IP (or used the alias) the map would never load.

    Yep, most routers will not let internal traffic access an internal device using an external address
