How to Install

Tugboat is the default transport of FishNet! Which means it comes with FishNet by default when Importing FishNet from your favorite source.
The Transport Manager will automatically make this the default transport at runtime, if you did not add any other Transport to the Network Manager Game Object.

Component Settings

Settings are general settings for Tugboat.
Dont Route forces sockets to send data directly to the network adapter interface without routing through other services such as routers. This is often only needed when working with multiple network adapters.
Server are settings used by the server.
IPv4 Bind Address is which address to bind the server to. If set and IPv4 is not available this will cause a socket error upon server start.
Enable IPv6 enables IPv6 binding when available. In some cases you may want this disabled if you have an IPv6 interface you do not want used.
  • IPv6 Bind Address is which address to bind the server to. If set and IPv6 is not available this will cause a socket error upon server start.
Port is which port the server will listen on. This is also the port clients will connect to. In some instances you may need to change this at runtime using TransportManager.SetPort().
Maximum Clients is the maximum active clients allowed before the transport begins to deny connections.
Client are settings used by the client.
Client Address is which address to connect to. This is typically your server address. Localhost is set as default for local testing.
