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 (192.xxx.xxx.xxx) 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.
