I'm running a terraria server and would like to be able to join the world I am running via the mobile version of the game (running on Android). Is it possible to join via the mobile version using the server's ip address? So far I haven't found an option in the mobile game ui but I may be missing something.

It is possible to join a server through direct IP.

For example:
My friend is playing Terraria and wants me to join him, but we are in different places.
To join him/her you need to go to settings, find VPN, and as a VPN server IP enter his/her router's IP.
Then you should be able to see his/her game just like if you were playing on same WI-FI.

    @Malco But this is an answer. I'm not sure what you mean. Commented Nov 12, 2018 at 21:02
  • @Wrigglenite You are correct, I must have misread/misunderstood it the first time round. I have made some minor rewording/grammar corrections to make it a bit clearer, Maciej if you feel these are incorrect feel free to make further edits using the edit button.

Got word in the discord channel for tshock that this isn't possible. Oh well. Maybe I'll setup the game on desktop and join there.
