Im looking into hosting games, on my 5mb/2mb connection, but have never done it, and Im confused,. Do I need a server pack or server patch? I click on create game and set my router to allow 15567 udp, but it still doesnt work. What am i doing wrong? Thanks

what do you mean, it doesnt work, do you mean that you cant see the server or something?, or it just doesnt start?

For BFV it requires port 15567 right?; not 14567, I thought 14567 was for bf1942.

ok, what it is on the server list, theres something along the lines of add server or something, yeah?, well type in the IP of the server, add it and it will appear on the server list

Yea there is a server ip entry, but thats for connecting to a different server, other than mine, remember Im trying how to utilize my fast connection to be the server not trying to connect to one. I am running behind a router, but have allowed all required ports, and even put my pc in the DMZ. I also downloaded the v1.2 dedicated server software, but when I put my WAN ip address in and the box disappears. When I select automatically determine ip address, it comes up with my 192.xxx.xx.xx, which is no good. Does anyone know whats wrong here???
