hi im sithmace/Rayze i have been trying to start a dedicated avp2 server on and off for the last week (tried about a year ago and got fed up) i know you guys are proberly sick of seeing threads about this and so am i, so i wanan get this working. i have a linksys router, windows XP my port for my server says its 27888 if that helps it isnt my personal firewall blocking it i tried that. so a breif explanation how to sort this maybe? lol and second i tried running a dedicated server with custom maps i just get a error couldnt load map ... any help with that please?
ok ... portforward.com is your friend. The issue may be an antivirus proggie that has a firewall, it could be if you are using DSL that has a firewall built in to the modem.
well i heard that there is a port range you can open for the game, any ideas what that is, so i can try fort forwarding them?
THIS should help a little.
