Rapid Hosting Guide: Troubleshooting the "Connection Refused" Error in GTA V Server

If you're facing the "Connection Refused" error on your GTA V server, follow these steps to rectify the issue:

Step 1: Refer to the Knowledgebase Guide

Begin by consulting our comprehensive guide on addressing the "Couldn't Connect to Server" error at this link: Connection Guide. This resource will help you resolve any potential port-related complications causing this error.

Step 2: Confirm Port Configuration

Ensure that your server's port settings are accurately configured and align with the required specifications. If your port settings are correct but the problem persists, proceed to the next step.

Step 3: Integrate "sv_listingIPOverride" into server.cfg

set sv_listingIPOverride "X.X.X.X"

Step 4: Reboot Your Server

Save the alterations you've made to your server.cfg file. Initiate a restart of your GTA V server to apply the new configuration.

Step 5: Verify the Resolution

Once the server restart is complete, verify whether the "Connection Refused" error has been successfully resolved.
