whose room? to a public room? to a friend’s room? do public rooms connect? did you check your username and token?

A public/friends room. We are trying to do to public. And it does connect to others and we have verified

Whomever creates the room should port forward (default citra port is 24872).

Sorry if I’m being really dumb. But what does port forward mean

To open a port on your router/modem represented by a number with a protocol to allow connections to be made, as mention above, whoever is creating the room should open a port. citra only requires you to open the port on the UDP protocol. so in short, for simplicity port forward port 24872 UDP. check the router/modem manual, you can usually find articles or youtube videos describing the process in detail for your specific router/modem, you can also check your router/modem manual for help.

after that is done simply create a room using that port.
