I'm trying to host a server for a game, I know my firewall is off for it, but it never shows up when i try to look for it in the list of servers. The game I am trying to get this to work for right now is BF1942. Any suggestions, help?:confused:
Suggestion: post this in the BF1942 forums. Its moer likley somone will be able to help you there. As for me, I've never played it.
I would die without my life.

If you are behind a router you have use port forwarding for the specific ports BF uses on the router to allow your game to connect to the internet.
What might that port be? I'm having the same prob and it really sux cus me and my friend wanna play some of our custom maps. :bawl: Getting to be a real pain in the :moon:
Battlefield 1942 uses the following port(s): 14567 (UDP) Only required port If you want your server to be listed on Gamespy: 14690 (UDP) 22000 (UDP) (only for LAN games) 23000-23009 (UDP) 27900 (UDP) (Gamespy Master Server UDP Heartbeat) 28900 (TCP) (Gamespy Master Server List Request)
