Before you do anything, you should check that the server isn't already in the serverlist! - Try a search for the IP address of the server, don't forget to include the port number, eg: :27960.
(2) Check the IP address again, maybe it contains some typos, if the IP is correct you can click "Register this IP with the server list...", after clicking on this link you get the message, that the server was added. Now you have to wait, it can take between 5 minutes up to 2 hours, simply try after 10 minutes to search for your server ip again, in most cases the server is already in the serverlist, if not, you may have to wait a while longer.
If the server is in the list, that's all. If not then be sure that the server is online and try it again
Server with dynamic IP addresses
Splatterladder cannot detect servers with dynamic IP's automaticly, because the IP-address changes daily. A server should always have a static IP, if you order/rent a (game)server ask if the IP address is static. If not, there's a way to add a dynamicDNS to the server, but remember, there's no guarantee.
To add a server with a dynamic IP we need the following information:
- the current IP address and port
- static domain (like dynDNS) + port
If you host the game on your computer, you have to find the correct IP address. Invalid/Private addresses] are:
- 127.x.x.x (used as example above)
you need to find the correct address, which is accessible from the internet. So if you have a firewall, the server may appear to be online on your computer, however noone can connect.
