since extinction update it's not possible to host a server on pc for xbox players .

this as been reported already a wile ago and still no fix on it . here is the link of the report . please add you input if you also use to host a server on pc for xbox players . 

 

I have a crossplay server running on a pc at my house and I'm able to join with both a local xbox one x and a separate xbox one x on a separate subnet in the house. I was also able to connect to the server from a friend's house several weeks ago. I'm not sure what I'm doing differently but it seems to be working for me.

I saw on one of the other forums that someone with a similar issue had to contact their ISP and have their IP address changed to address this. Seeing that email, I recalled seeing reports from people who were having trouble connecting to Netflix and the way they resolved their issue was to do the same thing, contact their ISP and have their IP changed. I'm not saying this will fix your issue, but it may be work a try. I think the underlying issue found was that for some reason, the ISP blocks the IP accidentally for some reason.

Anyway, may be worth a try.

You join the hosted windows store server through xbox app by joining on friends. You won't see a hosted windows store PC server on the ark server list because Nitrado has a monopoly on it with the devs, they don't want to lose hosting fees. It might show up but it will take 7-10 days of 24/7 running, but any update, crash, or greyed out/unjoinable state will just reset it.

i know all of that my friend i had a server hosted on pc for xbox since day one of crossplay availability. but after extinction release the crossplay option does not show anymore and nobody on xbox or pc can join the server lauched on the pc. and everyone i contacted cause tey where saying they had a crossplay server i ended up knowing it was nitrado ones . all the ppl i knew with a server on pc for xbox can't host anymore . so i know it's not a problem from my side

Crossplay toggle was removed because by default crossplay is always enabled, the entire point of UWP program. I am hosting a server right now with my windows store version, I'm not on server list but friends can join through the hosted Xbox gamertag just fine. Make sure you are updated on the latest version of ark, Xbox app, and windows updates and your NAT shows open under the Xbox app > settings > test connection

it simce some ppl have it working , have got messages . but they can't tel me what they did to work . apprentlly they did nothing . so i don't get it why i can't make it work. it worked perfect for more then 1 year , but as soon as i downloaded extinction and the ark update. i could not join the server anymore or all the players that where in it . as i said server starts but no one can join it . 

i changed IP , open more ports on my router yesterday . and no change . don't know what to do anymore . other then sell my game .  i have not found 1 server that has as good balanced stats as mine had . and playing alone is boring ther is not really story in this game .

Often i have to have the server account friend the player who wants on. Used to be it was enough for them to friend the account abd just join its game. Its really irritating to have to do that.

Also after last update has 3 occurrances where server is up but nobody can join like the live account disconnected. Restarting live and ark fixes.
