Hi, I'm having a problem with hosting an Internet TCP/IP server for Direct Play. I've played with friends on their servers but when I'm trying to host a game they can't find me. I have a DI-604 router and I have enabled DMZ to my computer and given my external IP to my friends but it just won't work.

What can I do the get it working?

Thanks in advance.

Edit: I can add that when I look up my IP ingame, it's my private ( and not my public IP that's shown. One of my friends who can host says that it's his public IP that shows when he's hosting.

I assume that this is the problem, can it be fixed and if so, how?

I have that problem alot restart your computer and if that doesnt help make sure your IP address is right if that doesnt help all I can suggest is don't host.
